    Wrong. The police don't whisper to a man with a gun, and you can see that Crawford doesn't make any reaction until you can hear the cop yell at him "Get down...put the gun down!"

    And even if they had said something earlier, the recording shows he did nothing that posed an imminent threat.


    But it doesn't matter because what I saw in the video showed him raising the gun up after the first officer to be heard shouted at him to drop it, which is justification for them to shoot.
    No, the recording shows that he did not raise the gun up. He was dropping it and the barrel was pointed at the floor the entire time.

    If that is true, then why no indictment? Maybe you don't have all the facts?

    It could have been said pretty loudly and still not picked up over a phone that was more than 20 feet away and pressed against someone's face. We don't know how close the officers we could hear were to the guy, so we have no way of knowing how well the phone was picking out background noise.

    You are wrong about the barrel pointing down the entire time. It was being brought up, whether intentionally or by reflex just before the guy was shot. I watched it and gave the exact time when it happened.

    Must have been a liberal cop. Liberals seem to think that having a gun nearby is always an imminent threat.

    Why do you have to go to the extreme? No one is talking about OJ. I merely asked you why, if what you say is true did the GJ fail to indict? And could it be that you are not privy to all the evidence they saw? Or, is it just that the black man was shot by cops, and that's all you need in your mind to indict them on your own?

    But of course and the caller too! He looks really liberal to me.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    You're wasting your time. Bitter little trolls are best put on ignore.

    Again, we can see that Crawford doesn't move or react in any way. Not moving is not a response that can be considered dangerous. And the gun was at his side and pointed down throughout the entire encounter with the police

    I saw that he moved. I don't know why you didn't see it, but it did happen. The gun was coming/moving up just before he was shot. Like I said, don't know if this was done intentionally or just a reaction, but he was moving the gun up, even if slowly, just before he was shot. I gave the time to the second earlier in this thread.
