    My ownership is in the side pocket of the front driver's door and my wallet is always in the center console when I'm driving. I only carry what I need on my person at any given time, like cash and a debit/credit card. Does that make me stupid?

    In fact, ever get out of your car when pulled over?
    Never, and never.

    Am I the only one that's thinking, not only of the man he almost killed, but by standards that could have been killed just as easy?

    The man was pulled over for a seat belt violation. He trooper gets out, asks him for his ID, the man turns to get it and the cop starts barking orders and shoots him for fear he is grabbing a weapon.

    Another ridiculous shooting from a cop so scared he shoots because of a perceived threat. He asked for the ID and then assumed the guy was going for a gun.

    Luckily though the guy lived and the cop is no longer on the force. I don't think should get 20 years, it just looks like he should really not be a police officer if he is that jumpy. Maybe a couple of years and banned from ever owning a weapon or serving in any kind of authoritative role.

    Edit: Also, thank god that cop is a terrible shot or else the guy would be dead with a few slugs in his chest. He only took a single bullet to the pelvis.
    Good luck with that.

    Should the victim file a civil suit it appears he would win enough to own a good part of the low country, maybe the Battery or even Hilton Head.

    Why isn't everyone given an Obama Wallet so they can keep their drivers license in their wallet and in their back pocket ?

    You don't need to live in the hood to know that you always tell LE what your doing with your hands like telling the officer that you don't have an Obama wallet and that your license is inside the car and that you are going inside to get your license.

    SOP, always make sure your hands are in complete view of LE or you might get shot.

    It's a good thing the officer didn't use the Applegate stance or the Weaver stance or you would have one dead stupid person.

    Stupid is shooting an innocent person.

    About two seconds later, the trooper that police identify as Groubert comes into view with a gun drawn and yells "Get out of the car! Get out of the car!" The gun is fired -- at least four shots are heard -- and Jones steps away from the vehicle, raising his hands in the air and eventually moving off camera.

    "I just got my license! You said get my license!" says someone off camera, apparently Jones.

    After being told to put his hands behind his back, Jones asks: "What did I do, sir?"
    Stupid is the cop and anyone who thinks the shooting is justified.

    So you are advocating PC ROE that Obama has forced upon our troops in Afghanistan that they can't shoot at the enemy until the enemy has already began shooting at you.

    The victim was a ****ing idiot for going back into his car without telling the officer and waiting for the officer to acknowledge it.

    This just another MSM trying to start ****.

    Why weren't any of the cop shootings of unarmed white boy incidents weren't covered ?

    How many of the below did CNN or MSNBC covered ?

    Still over two more months left in the year.
