    A report of a suspicious person was called it.
    He did not have to consent to any search.

    Yet they found property not belonging to him.


    Kelly was not scared, afraid or squat. He had had many run-ins with police. He was playing a game with them.
    He even told the Officer to start swinging.


    Cowards do not confront hostile people. Can your bs.
    Kelly was mentally ill. He did not purposely instigate the attack. And no, it doesn't take six armed police officers against one person.

    Some people will ALWAYS justify police misconduct. It runs in their veins.

    What?
    Mentally ill can't resist? How absurd.
    He purposely instigated the force used against him.
    And yes it can take more than six Officers sometimes. Especially when it comes to the mentally ill and those on drugs.

    And the people who do are almost ALWAYS consider themselves conservative. And this is not a real conservatives value. Again an area why I respect real libertarians as conservatives and not Republicans or these new fangled republicans who have a habit of calling themselves libertarians.

    i didn't say that mentally ill people can't resist. I said Kelly did not instigate the attack. He was hallucinating and confused.

    You said; did not purposely instigate the attack, and that is hogwash. He did.
    Nor was he hallucinating and confused.
    He showed he knew exactly what was being spoken about, and even demonstrated he knew. He was playing a game.

    I would suspect that it does take at least more than 1 police officer, if the goal is to capture the suspect, as I would think the case is here.

    I would also think that having more officers would be better in most situations, to assist in quickly restraining the suspect. In this case it appears to have worked out badly though.

    Two off the top of my head.
    Cop, separated by the truck bed, shoots and kills black man getting out of the truck with a knife in his hand.

    Cops, having not received any report and not seeing any untoward action, coming upon someone from behind, who was not firing what they believe is a real gun... They order him to drop the weapon and he turns in response to the call. Not knowing if he even understood or fully heard what was said, he is gunned down as he turns.
