The fact that you value your life above theirs is indicative of your moral standpoints.
Actually, we should all feel this way. I value my life above theirs as well. I value my life above all but about 4 or 5 people in this world.
While I disagree with Domo on this particular point, and the cops were in the wrong, we do have to look at the dynamics of the situation.
Gang-bangers in an all-Hispanic little cul-de-sac, known for violence, with one shooting already earlier that morning, with the street blocked, and a
crowd forming. If I was a cop in that situation, I would value my own life over all of there's. For a cop, their motivation is sometimes just to
make it home at night.
They were wrong in that video, but if any of us were a cop on that beat, knowing that neighborhood, and those people, we might have done the same
This is the best post I have seen so far so props to you. Why is it so hard for people to see the other side, I don't like the way they reacted but
there was only one group which needed to be there. Firing randomly into a crowd is bad but releasing the dog was the worst imo but how would the cop
haters deal with the situation?
The police had to neutralise a situation that was fast getting out of hand, I don't think they handled it the best but when your Johny on the spot
things can seem very different. That is why the cops have the right to tell people to disperse & why people need to disperse when ordered to.
Should police wait till they are cut off from reinforcements, out maned, out gunned and as good as dead or make efforts to ensure it doesn't reach
A piss poorly handled situation by all involved but like I said only one group had to be there.
Solution 1: whenever police attend these areas it's with tactical units, they set up an exclusion zone & people are free to yell all they like but
the minute they cross the line they get a hollow point no questions asked, the instance someone throws something even a diaper, snipers identify their
target & neutralise it permanently.
Solution 2: Cops only go to these places once a week to collect the dead bodies other than that the cop hatting scum are on their own. Monday = bring
out ya dead.
911: how may we help.
Johnny: there is a gang on guys who are breaking in, they are threatening to kill me and gang rape my wife.
911: We have identified your area as a no go zone, please relocate to a safe area so we can provide assistance asap. Edit we have just identified you
and your wife as people who randomly abuse good cops who are just trying to do their job so you are not entitled to have them risk their safety for
you. We suggest you make your peace with god & lube up your wife.
Johnny: See I have been telling everyone for years that you pigs are just %$#@#%%^$#$#$%%%$$$$ and %#@##%%^,.
