Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
It's not beyond belief that it took 9 shots (9mm) to immobilize a large man, even one not...medicated. I agree it sounds excessive, but I wasn't on my back, pinned in my car, with a three hundred pound young man beating on me. If the cop was carrying a .40 or .45, that would be different...slightly.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
So all older people think alike eh? How very ageist of you. What you don't seem to understand is that as technology and weaponry advances, so to will tactics...Would you have police today (whom in most cases are outgunned) going up against .50cal's with .38 revolvers? Would you not equip cops with riot gear to hold the line against anarchist rioters? Your youth doesn't reflect the real world, and we don't have all the facts in this...You are choosing to believe people with an anti police bias. And what I have consistently said is that the investigation has to be completed before you can just buy into these friends of the young man...It's the older, retired cops that are disgusted with the direction that the police are going as ex-Cop, Radley Balko points out in his book, Rise of the Warrior Cop. You keep talking about how old you are, so you should have a problem with it too!
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

This is exactly why they wanted his name released and why it never should have been.
