    Frikkin' media. This already sounds like just a sad situation without the ridiculously inflammatory headline.

    This has nothing to do with politics and I'm NOT giving you a hard time. But I see how most of these things turn out and the cops take very good care of their own no matter how egregious the behavior.

    The camera fell off. Sure. Right.
    Even if the camera fell off... it just so happens it occurred the night before. I doubt that timing coincidence. So even if it fell off, they are probably covering up that the damn thing has been off for months and don't want to get in trouble about that either.

    Taking a cop's baton away and attacking him with it is not too smart, particularly for an honor student. My guess is that there were chemicals involved, most likely ethanol.
    Sorry, anything you say that's short of saying the cop committed premeditated murder will not be well received in this thread.

    2 paths. Drugs/alcohol or personal issue.

    Well he was an arts major...
    But besides that, I doubt that the officer would just shoot for the sake of shooting...and at the same time, I find the camera falling off highly highly highly suspicious

    I'm sure the kid was doing his part in the altercation... provoking and probably got the best of the guy. It's just ****ed up how such incidences often end up in shootings. Provocation equaling death sentence on the spot? There is just something systemically wrong.

    *edit...

    There is also something systemically wrong when authority... the ones with the guns.... can almost NEVER admit wrong doing.

    Well this;

    Meanwhile, Redus and Carter were fighting, the university said. Redus managed to get hold of Carter's police baton and started beating on the officer, who drew his gun and fired, it said.
    That's not harmless "provocation", that's assault with a deadly weapon. Is it the college you think that's involved in some cover up?

    Says the cops. Witness says the kid sacarcastically said, "Oh, you gonna shoot me now?" Then he shot six times. When a guy pulls a gun and you say that to him... you are not probably beating him at the time. So even if the kid got his baton and started smacking him around with it... when the cop pulled the gun I seriously doubt he continued beating him with a gun pointed at him.

    This kind of thing always seems to split conservatives. This is where you see the authority loving conservatives split from the actual small government conservatives who have a natural distrust of authority.
