    Well, why didn't you say so in the first place. We should allow him to just shoot whomever he wants then.

    Nice hyperbole.

    Re: Video shows trooper shooting unarmed man, South Carolina police say

    I have to wonder why the guy got out of his SUV in the first place, why he didn't empty his hands (was he driving with all that **** in his lap?), and why he rushed back into his SUV for his license (it's not in his pocket? wtf?). Is he just stupid?

    I just wondered why the guy was shot at four times for doing what the police officer asked. No need to wonder anything else unless you wish to justify the shooting of an unarmed man following police orders.

    It doesn't matter. Maybe his wallet fell out of his pants, maybe he had just taken it out and had not put it back in his pocket not really thinking about it, or maybe.... Just because you don't have your ID in your pocket at all times makes you stupid. I get ID'd alot and sometimes I don't always put it back in my purse or pocket right away either.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Yeah, but if I had been shot before it doesn't mean I can just shoot people around me because I am "a little jumpy". A cop who is " a little jumpy" is a cop with a desk position. You don't get to shoot innocent people unjustly just because you're "a little jumpy", what an extremely stupid and dangerous position.

    Bottom line is there will never be another white cop black suspect shooting that wont have the racial divide component.

    As long as certain people are around, probably not.

    So you would be outraged at the unjustified shooting of a white unarmed civilian following police orders by a white policeman but in this case, there's a racial divide element?

    Or are you trying to make another point?

    The first thing I did was watch the video and make my judgment:

    ....so now all that's left to do in this thread is nit-pick the details and wait for the usual suspects to show up spouting their talking points.

    So yeah, I'm just kinda wondering what this guy was thinking. Are gun owners the only people who put any thought into how to behave during a police stop?
