    Re: Police: Officer in Missouri shot, Killed man who Pulled Gun.....

    If the cop had remembered to turn on his body camera and his dashboard camera, I'm thinking this would all be a lot clearer.

    When cops "forget" the things that protect both them and the citizens they approach, well, that's why some of us wonder if his story is correct.

    Most likely he told the truth; but let's hope better evidence comes out so we don't have to rely just on his word.

    I browsed back, only saw a link to a site where there is the same video that is everywhere with the white car in the foreground, with the frozen frame at the end before the shooting starts. Maybe I'm not knowing where to look. Where are the other two videos, and the one that shows the entire video? Could you repost the link to those, please?

    Exactly. There are a few troubling items in this whole story, enough to withhold judgment and not jump to the conclusion that the police version of the events is 100% accurate, even though I agree that it is probably more likely than not to be accurate.

    He's a communist sympathiser.

    You clearly see the man raising his arm: true
    He had a gun: unclear at this point. I'm more than ready to accept it, if it becomes clear.
    I know that you are trying to play 'devils advocate' in some of your hypothesis, but come on. Earlier you posed a scenerio where it could have been the kids finger pointing to an area...Now you pose that it may have been a cell phone? Either you believe that police are that incompetent, or you're reaching, and only able to come up with absurd scenerio.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    It just doesn't seem very likely, and there is no evidence of it at this time.
    Yup. I feel like evidence would have been far less forthcoming if there was a cover-up in progress, and they would be filling it in with narrative a lot more than they have been. And given the current tension in the area, the story just makes sense, unfortunately.

    So pointing out (rightfully) that Mandela was not a communist = being a communist sympathizer? Gotcha.

    Cue 5+ pages of Mandela bashing from the historically ignorant.

    To be fair, it wouldn't be the first time police had mistaken another object in someone's hand for a gun.
