    There's more than a little taint in that post too!

    So only black teenagers are capable of being shot by police?

    In Garners case he was stopped because why? Oh he had a record of selling untaxed cigarettes, you say?


    In both cases tobacco was indeed the instigating factor to stop and question Garner and Brown.
    OK. Great. Smoking is bad for your health and in these two cases it's apparently deadly. Congratulations, you're right.

    Not getting out of the street is a capital offence?

    So he was shot because he was poor? How did the officer know that?

    Like I said earlier: the video has nothing to do with anything except trolling. And of course the usual suspects come crawling out from under the rocks to spout their bull****.
    your kidding yourself by making such an absurd argument.

    You think if they had video of this guy helping an old lady across the street 5 minutes before the shooting YOU and all the media pundits wouldn't be shouting "LOOK, what a great citizen and wonderful human being he was. HERE IS PROOF."

    but instead, we have video showing what a piece of human garbage this guy was, and what a DANGER he was to the average citizen(anyone who gets physical with an old man is the worst kind of coward), now you want to argue it doesn't make any difference.

    you people take the cake, honestly

    Which, if true, apparently justifies the killing of an unarmed kid. I didn't know that cigars were that valuable, but apparently they are far more valuable to the Far Right than the life of a kid.

    I would expect no different reaction from you.
