    I predict that Santa Claus will be making a long delivery trip with with his reindeer and sleigh tonight.

    And I'll bet that some people will be getting guns for Christmas. I hope that they don't shoot their eye out!

    "The officer had been given a body camera but was not wearing it at the time of the shooting. His car's dashboard camera also was not activated when the incident took place, Belmar said."

    Officer kills armed black man near Ferguson, Missouri, police say | Reuters

    Can't wait for the conspiracy theories to start flying.

    The point is body camera's and dash cams are not the answer complete answer to shootings or violance.

    You mean the gas station vid showing the guy pointing a gun at the officer? Or the vids captured by the news media?

    Still no answer to my questions.

    When you get this done, let us know.

    Whether or not people are intent on hating cops, and whether or not the more light that is "shed" from body cameras will help "vindicate" the tops to these people, has nothing to do with the statement in the post you quoted that started this line of conversation.

    Whether or not people will still complain about the cops or say this cop was wrong, even if there was a body camera video, is entirely irrelevant to whether or not a body camera would shed more light on this situation.

    A poster claimed a body camera would shed more light on this situation.

    You claimed that it wouldn't.

    You then tried to defend your ridiculous claim by talking about something that in no way, shape, or form defends it. (that people would still complain)
    I claimed that it wouldn't make any difference to the haters. Here's the post;

    Now how has anything I've said since that post "moved the goalposts"? I keep saying variations of pretty much the same thing. That you don't want to accept there's truth in that is really not my problem.

    The one showing a guy being harrassed by a police officer because he was shopping while black.

    I don't understand this ****. If a cop wants to talk to you the appropriate response is to just answer his questions. How ****ing hard is this. If you perceive it as harassment you take that up with his boss, not him, in the street.

    Cops can be good, bad and all shades in between. Generally, only stupid people put themselves in a situation where a cop would kill them.

    good grief.

    Simple solution. Don't pull and point a gun on anyone who is also carrying. I doubt the person would be shot.

    "readily concealed weapons.". So we should ban knives, any sharp object, clubs, etc.

    If we banned and got rid of all weapons, earth may be peaceful, but would have no way to defend itself when the alien attack came.

    Suicide by cop happens. Wonder what makes a person suicidal? Hmmmmmm....living a life with no hope perhaps.
