    Nice distortion. He never stated he wouldn't take the polices words into consideration, he was suggesting he wasn't going to accept just the polices words as the truth.

    Personally, I'm inclined to give the police the benefit of the doubt here initially...which is why I don't think the officer should be taken into custody or anything of the sort. But it would be foolhearty to just assume that the police officers version of events is 100% truth and forgo looking for additional information to verify and/or clarify the cops story, and it would be poor reporting to report a single persons account of the situation at this early of a stage as if it's verified fact.

    Again, another dishonest argument. Stating that people will still rally against the cops in no way, shape, or form disproves his assertion that it would shed more light on this situation.

    Its absolutley reasonable to suggest that even with "more light" shed on this incident there's a good chance there would still be people using it to rally against cops. However, people rallying agianst the cops doesn't somehow disprove that more light wouldn't be shed on it.

    RDS's comment latter comment is correct, even if you don't agree with the need for cops to have body cameras. If there was a camera on the police officers person there would be more information available regarding this shooting. That's simple fact. Claiming "no it won't" is a flat out falsehood. The rest of your post is nothing but a strawman

    Depends. Are those smoke grenades causing any kind of spark to occur within the proximity of the gas pumps?

    If not...yes, yes it is much less sane. Could smoke cause some of the crowd to act up? Sure. It could also disuade some of the crowd as well. However, what it couldn't do (based on the hyotehtical of "if not") is cause an explosion.

Today, my feelings is just stop this lunacy. Enough is enough, If they don't want the police, fine. Just stop policing those neighborhoods that do not want the police. Problem solved.
    To stop policing black communities would mean that there would be twice as many dead as there is now. Without Cops.....its like Charles Barclay said. Wild Wild West.

    Did you see how the AP gave into it with their Poll. They went and polled 85 people and came up with that Best Story of 2014 was Cops killing black men.

    What a crock that is. Best Story of 2014. The MS Media is driving this issue. Its about time people woke up and went after those pushing the Narrative. That would be those Editors and News Directors. Break out their names and let the good people of this nation bring them what they deserve.


    AP poll: Police killings of blacks voted top story of 2014


    The police killings of unarmed blacks in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere — and the investigations and tumultuous protests they inspired — was the top news story of 2014, according to The Associated Press' annual poll of U.S. editors and news directors.

    After the Editors and Directors.....then go for those that were feeding tensions. No reason they should get to live comfortable and easy like. Show them there is a price to pay.....for playing with society.

    I think they're about as robotic and brainwashed as the crowds you see in North Korean videos screaming and crying for the "Dear Leader".

    Looks similar to me, though hard to really make anything major out with the low resolution that's released. Hopefully the police will have some means of getting a better look at it.

    The conflict appears to be happening a fair bit around the police cruiser. Hopefully if we're lucky the cruisers camera was on and caught it as well.

    Happy this occured at a gas station though, if it was going to have to occur somewhere, as it allows for video evidence. From this video though, as best as I can see, it definitely seems the individual pulled a gun on the officer which verifies the cops story.
