    That's absurd.

    More " Gun laws " that the low life criminals won't follow leaving law abiding Americans defenseles.

    No thanks.

    Fortunately even our Politicians have more sense ( most do anyway ) than you do and we'll always be allowed to defend ourselves and our Families and property.

    Even black cops feel like they are racially profiled when off duty (Off duty, black cops in New York feel threat from fellow police )

    Good. Good TV watching. We need more cities in this nation on fire. Let the criminals run loose and see what they can accomplish. Then it will prove that we need a police presence.
    We just need some upscale neighborhoods to catch fire.

    Video Shows Moments Before Police Shooting Near Ferguson, Missouri - ABC News

    Looks to me like the teen was pointing a gun at the cop.

    Sounds like a attempted Cop assassination.

    The first time ( the Hatchet attack in NY ) was a " fluke ", a guy with mental problems.

    The next time the guy shot those two Cops because he had " mental problems "

    Im sure this guy had " mental problems " too. Absolutely no association with the " peaceful protest ".

    I predict Al Sharpton will be hundreds or even thousands of miles away but Fox News will manipulate their videos so that it appears that Al personally shot the officer.

    Is it less sane than firing smoke grenades into a crowd of protestors because it surely calms them down?

    I agree. We don't know what happened.

    However, in general, it's a bad idea to pull a gun on a cop. On the other hand, given the tension in the St. Louis area, it's important for any cop to approach a young black man in a non-threatening manner. And perhaps with another cop.

    Until we know what the facts are - what the cop said, why the young man pulled the gun (if he did), and so on, it's premature to say if the cop was right or wrong to shoot him.

    So yes, the protesters are premature as well - but it's important to remember the context, the huge amount of frustration at the racism in the area. At least from the article, it doesn't sound like the protesters were violent, although I heard there were some police cars dented.

    I hope the facts can be revealed quickly and fully.
