    Sometimes my hubby will show me videos of his stops. Last week when he pulled a guy over,-the man got out of his car and approached my husband to talk. To me, I would have gotten nervous( but I wouldn't have shot). My husband handled it quite well and didn't see the need to shoot bc he was jumpy or scared. Can we at least come to the conclusion that there are good and bad cops everywhere? And it doesn't make you a cop hater if you point out one of their wrongs. Just bc the guy got out of the car doesn't mean he was guilty of anything or deserved to be shot at.

    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.

    Rigghhhhtttt. It's the guy who got shot who's the idiot.... He should have read the "How to be a Good Citizen" manual or something.

    1) When the police say, "Jump" - do not just jump! First you must ask permission to jump. Then ask "How high, sir, and what form should that jump take?"

    He didn't kill the guy. He would be killed in jail. Most cops go to jails under assumed names away from the area they were charged.

    But no one is concerned with throwing other undesirables into places they know will get them killed. So why should these criminals be treated any differently?

    The only difference between this one and the other is that this was caught on camera. If that camera wasn't there the cop could have easily said that the man launch at him and the case would have got dismiss with no one questioning the cop.

    Being a cop in jail is adding to the sentence. Usually they have to be kept in protective isolation for much of their sentence. Like I said, he didn't kill the guy.
    But if it will make you happy to have him go through hell for the next 20 years. Protest for that at sentencing.

    Being a child molester in jail is adding to the sentence. They don't always kill the kids either. And yet how many of y'all are super happy to throw them into gen pop? Maybe you've even argued this yourself. So why that criminal and not the other criminal?

    Making people go through hell....I mean, have you ever read your own arguments on prison population, death penalty, etc.? It's all in line.

    Just because I ask questions doesn't mean I'm trying to justify bad behavior. I ask questions for a living, it's what I do.

    If I didn't ask, I wouldn't have found out that the guy got out of his truck....to go into a store. He didn't even know a cop wanted to pull him over when he got out of his truck.

    Knowing why he got out of his truck helps me understand the cop's state of mind, which helps me understand why the cop fired. If the guy got out of his truck because there was an argument already underway when the video clip started, that's a while different picture. But, he was just going into a store, and that's important to know.

    Most cops spend the majority of their time as police officers doing the right thing. Child molesters do not, and they usually don't have just one victim. So what happens to them. I don't care.
    You want a cop who makes one f up to pay with his life.

    At least 2 counts of attempted murder, he should be facing the death penalty.
