    Too bad for you as it is information that is far more believable (even as third hand) than the story his cohort in crime is spewing.

    A more accurate headline is "Police shoot 17 year old for stealing a cigar"

    Wait, are you now saying you aren't really black after all? How can this be?

    I'm glad this incident is bringing you so much pleasure, however. Maybe two black kids will be shot tomorrow and you can have twice as much fun.

    the video show he was a dangerous person who assaulted a harmless old man trying to protect his property? and people like you want us to give him the benefit of the doubt and defend him? why? because he's black? You need to look at the evidence MORE and try and make political points LESS.

    Exactly. I will say this, though: The police department in that town have handled this case in the most inefficient manner I have ever seen. It's like they're following some bizarro world playbook on how NOT to handle a sensitive case.

    This is what gets me. For a lot of folks it seems more reasonable to assume that the cop simply freaked out and killed the kid for no reason than that the kid did something to provoke the cop into shooting. Why is that?
    Normally, stealing a cigar doesn't warrant the death penalty. Even if the cop knew about it, which the Chief of Police denies.

    Hearsay and speculation is all some people have. We have a forum user here named Josie and the person who called in on the radio just happened to be named Josie.
