I once thought the public needed guns to protect themselves from the criminals. Now the police are the criminals we need to protect ourselves from.

Guess the next explanation we will hear is about flash backs to 9-11, box cutters and how deadly a weapons they can be.

when we start hearing stories about how deadly a threat are box cutters and razor blades, then we know something is not quite right. sure, these things are dangerous, but so is mixing household cleansers.
the governments of this world (i.e. enemies of humanity) have weapons that could wipe out the whole d@mn planet in the blink of an eye. that's what we need to be worried about, and even more so, the people wielding this power.
of course the woman killed by the cops here is just another example of the police state mentality. for those who say they should have been trained to handle dealing with mentally ill people - well, they were, and they performed perfectly to the letter. this is how our officers are being trained to treat their fellow citizens,
and this is just one more reason why i will never respect anyone who works for the government - as a cop, a soldier, or even just filing papers at the DMV... nobody who willingly supports the police state has any right to live, and if you are too ignorant to realize what you are working for, well then, you are no better...

I vote you all start a petition to congress to do away with police. EVERY police department, sheriff's office, federal agency, etc....done..gone! Lets do that and get rid of us all....then I am POSITIVE the world as we know it and this country will be so much better off! I mean cmon, everyone out there is capable of taking care of buisness and keeping order right? You all could respond to these situations and do a MUCH better job then any cop could ever do! I know without any Law Enforcement anywhere in this country society as it has come to be would definitly then respect the needs, will, and desires of each other right? I'm guessing without LEO's crime would pretty much cease to exist right?
Look, this is a tragic event. But I can tell you something about the whole thing isn't making sense. I will wait to hear more, but IF...IF the officer did what the mother said: "he shot her and she fell, then he walked up as she layed on the floor and shot her two more times" then yes I'm on board with this officer going to prison for murder. But then there is the report from the medical examiner that NOONE on this thread decided to mention (suprise). The ME found that the 3 shots trajectories and distance were all the same!!!! Hmmmmm INTERSTING fact left out of all posts and all media outlets except ONE!!! Wonder why???????
Well we cant have cops going around getting paid killing people not even being trained in advance to that situation , in fact it's a disrace before God, the peoples safety and the fear of the law enforcement of such news in that certain community, that is bad cops shoot to kill for unknowingly what reson? When someones asks for an abulance give them one, not a cop. They must of felt it needed to be investigated of a mentally ill'd person, they should know that cops use force and wait untill they decide to call an abulence.......
COP : what seems to be going on?
Person is distress : *bleeding* maybe uncapable of communication
And anyone who says to get rid of cops is really stupid. However, in this case..someone needs to look into this department.......and fire or put that man in jail/prison. Killing is wrong especially when you lie about it.
