    It's an online political forum. Speculation and discussion is precisely what it's about.

    Not so coincidentally, this kid being dead doesn't seem to bother you.
    If someone is assaulting an officer with a weapon, I think it is well within reasonable limits that they defend themselves but yes, I gather we do disagree on this point.

    Certainly fair enough. I just don't like to range too far from the evidence.

    In other words, when it comes to cops, I'll believe the worst no matter what the actual facts may turn out to be.

    You are immediatly siding with the police statement that he was being assaulted. You are taking no evidence whatsoever and then saddling me with a false narrative of being opposed to him defending himself. I never said that and you saying I do is more than being dishonest on your part.

    Who are you to talk being that you take the police word for it with no evidence whatsoever.

    Oh right, you believe the cop actually opened fire because of a sarcastic comment (because we all know what generally murderous people most cops are).

    Witness testimony is evidence, including from cops (in fact, most of the people who testify are cops). I take it you think anything a cop says should just be discounted. Ok.

    I take it that the opinions of those directly involved in an incident should be the first opinions to be discounted or at least take a back seat to those who are witnesses who observed objectively.


    Also, why do you phrase all your post as if you know what I'm thinking rather than simply asking my opinion? you are discrediting yourself with every post when you do this.

    Good grief man, you just said it. A cop's statement is "no evidence whatsoever."
