    When the justice system fails, and all else fails, call in the bigger guns, the National Guard to back up the police departments whose police force uses excessive force, nice going.



    IMO, that's enough for an indictment right there.
    Dontre was completely in the wrong. He should not have grabbed the officer's baton and then try to kill him with it.

    Only the world's best warfighters and lawmen can drop a man with one or two shots while being attacked. 6 or 13 shots won't drop a raging bull instantly like Dontre or Michael Brown unless hit in the area of the lower brain or brainstem.

    Said cop, miffed that his play time has been interrupted, 'perceives a threat' and shoots said someone multiple times.

    At which time, the subject was no longer unarmed.

    Yeh I guess, still seems pretty crazy.

    Now tell me this apdst from an outside perspective it would look liek that police shootings have increased in the US. In this the case or are the media just choosing to report them more because of recent events?

    They're certainly getting more attention.

    And if he is fighting his termination it is likely he will get his job back.
    Yes, I really do have a valid point.

    Apparently you overlooked this part that led to the killing:

    failing to follow department rules in the moments leading up to the altercation, resulting in a struggle that left deadly force as the officer's only option.

    No, you really don't as you were trying to conflate the issues.

    And why was he being beaten on the head with a baton?

    some sort of cop alarm clock?

    was the cop practicing for a garage band or something?

    At this point, that's irrelevant.

    You have no idea how law enforcement officers train with firearms...do you?
