    On the contrary, the totality suggests that there was a perfect storm of circumstances:

    - "D-ck contest" ensues
    -Officer is out numbered 2-1
    -Man physically resists (Officer was probably not used to grappling- and espescially not with a larger opponent)
    -Man breaks free (now officer is losing the "d-ck contest")
    -Officer loses track of the third person- is he also going to attack?
    -Officer panics and shoots.

    What the officer should have done is simply let the man go, called for back up, figured out who he was (he was well known in the area), then arrest him later for reisting arrest and causing a traffic obstruction.
    The cop was pissed that they did not immediately subjugate to him.

    Trying the case in court would be better than trying it on the street, but then, as I said already, this is not a protest. It is an excuse to steal. The real victims are the owners of the businesses that were robbed and their insurers.

    Lol, I stand against abuses of the law regardless of who they're against. I also defend police officers when they need to be defended. Do you? Or do I need to show the other 200 dozen posts where you complain and moan about our slow march towards a "police state"? Tell us all again how you're in favor of transparency

    You have to ask... what exactly was suspicious about two black kids walking down a ghetto neighborhood at night? I mean, I understand if they see two black kids walking down a rich neighborhood but what made them suspicious in the first place?
