    That hasn't been shown to be true, and coming from his accomplice in crime, isn't very believable at all.

    I'll admit I've been reading your posts with interest, and thinking about them. I am a 52 year old woman and I have been in contact with cops and certainly around them, and I never once worried about being shot by any of them. When I get pulled over for speeding or whatever, I do what I have to do to get it over with and get out of there.

    I asked my husband if he feels there are possibilities of being shot by a cop when you interact with them, and he said "Not the same as the possibilities of me being shot the next time I drive to Boston".

    Do you think any cop is capable of shooting you for no reason?

    Here's some completely irrelevant information that we can use to speculate on the police officer's state of mind...
    Police domestic violence nearly twice average rate
    Could...maybe...alleged...unconfirmed reports...

    That was exactly the point. Somehow it still flew over your head.

    Also true. There are many caveats that could be explored. My main contention, however, was to contest the notion those shot by police owe it 100% to themselves for having been shot.

    Yes, intentionally or otherwise. Anyone is capable of shooting anyone else for no reason.

    Ah, now it makes sense. I've been scratching my head as to why in the heck it took the police department this long to release that video and information on the robbery. Turns out the information is completely irrelevant. The cop didn't know he was shooting at a suspect. So we still don't know a damn thing for sure other than a big unarmed black guy was shot by a cop and died.

    I guess my point flew over your head too.

    So how do these back up your claim?
    Well, there's this:

    Local police involved in 400 killings per year
    "Groups with guitars are on the way out, Mr. Epstein"

    Dick Rowe, A & R man
    Decca Records
    London, 1962
