    Nope. Being a suspect doesn't mean you may be arbitrarily executed by the police.

    Certainly increases the odds though.

    Well the police do shoot a lot of people, any interaction with them increases your odds of being shot.

    We're talking about the escalation of force here...when is it warranted and when is it not.

    Michael Brown (according to reports) was told to comply and refused

    Bundy was told to comply and refused.

    That's the entire contention of this situation. Don't play dumb, it makes you look bad and serves no purpose.

    Ok...so we agree on that


    Common as in happens much more often than it should. It should happen 0 times. Would you say that SWOT teams being used for issuing of Warrants and breaking into the wrong house result in unneeded death is too common? I can name you like three instances of that happening in the past year. I think it's way too common...it should pretty much never happen.

    What number do you think is acceptable in unarmed black men shootings?



    I can be it will never be sufficient for you to call it common. I'm not going to go through news stories for the past 6 months so that you can go through and find excuses for why the shooting should occur (as if that should ever happen unless someone's life is in danger) or state that's not enough for it to constitute a "common" occurrence.
    I don't think anyone of any color getting shot by a cop for no reason is acceptable.

    You have shown no evidence that this is a "common occurrence".

    We don't know enough about what led up to the shooting of Brown.

    Did he and or his accomplice fight with the cop? Did the officer receive the bulletin that described Brown before he saw them?

    But as far as I know, the perps had no guns.

    Even more so when one fits the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect.
