    What a ridiculous claim. No it is not Gestapo. You mention all these things but keep letting it slip your mind that these things, but for their combined weight, had no effect on the resisting man, he kept on resisting.

    Bottom line. They did not set out to kill him. Their actions were not murder, manslaughter or excessive, but within what they were trained to do.

    What difference, at this point, does this argument make?

    As you obviously don't care, what difference does it make?

    But, hold on a minute. The whole argument was about your claim the officers had every right to use whatever means to protect themselves. All I was saying was that the unarmed homeless guy was on the ground being pinned down, beaten and tased multiple times, so what were the officers protecting themselves from?

    Here was your post:


    See how you're trying to evade from the original point of argument?

    Still engaging in yet another evasion, I see.


    What does his past felonious history gotta do with your prior claim that the police were protecting themselves when all the while at the very moment Kelly was being battoned to the ground and pinned with crushing weight face down, tased, brutally assaulted and crushed to death?

    I think my point earlier is proven by now - video can be misinterpreted.

    Since you cannot BOTH be correct...I think?

    I don't know what you're talking about. When did I even respond or debate you on this topic before?

    You didn't.


    Edit: To clarify, I had earlier responded to someone's post about how the video clearly showed X by pointing out that video can be manipulated or misinterpreted - and I responded to your post because it seems apparent that at least the second half of that statement must be correct, since ric27 and yourself are obviously in disagreement, while having seen the same video (I think?).
