    please get your facts straight.....

    and he had been pointing the weapon numerous times at people that day at the park
    So the police didn't arrive on the scene until they rolled into view? Is that it?

    Come on man... seriously?

    and i will be on your side.......

    again.....never said cops were perfect.....

    is there a shooting like that? if so, was the officer brought up on charges?

    if not, what were the extenuating circumstances that havent been said?
    The John Crawford video is as close as I can get. He just turned.

    Most of us think people need a trial; that cops shouldn't get to decide who is a thug and should die and who shouldn't. Due process is a very important part of our constitution and laws.

    And how do you know if society is better off without him? What a judgement to make about someone that young. Do people never change in your opinion (if he actually was a criminal now)?
    Please post a link to your expressing concern for the old black fella who was beat up, if you are claiming you give a damn about what happens to African-Americans.

    Of am I accurate that really you don't give a damn and your messages are just chanting what you are told to chant?

    not a twisted reality

    this is the world we live in today

    and if you dont know that, you better learn fast

    cops will not play games when they are dealing with people with weapons

    it is listen, comply, or end up shot

    it really is that simple

    i have seen the video

    what i havent seen or heard is the audio which would help me make my determination one way or the other

    on the video he has the weapon on his hands

    the cops say they yelled at him to drop the weapon, and get down

    did they? i dunno.....i want to believe they did since that is the training every cop gets

    instead of dropping it, or getting down, he starts turning....and that is when he is shot

    is it a good shoot? again...i "think" so....but unsure because of no audio

    that is my opinion....yours may be different

    i happen to have 3 good friends that are LE.....and all with 20+ years in

    not even they know for sure on that case.......again.....there opinion is nearly mine

    we all wish we had audio to make it definitve

    what...you think they hung back until he got up?

    then they zoomed in, opened the door, and just murdered another black boy

    not biased or anything are you?

    why do you detest cops so much? gotta be a story there somewhere

    I gotta say, I'm not looking to hang these cops or anything. It's a tough decision I'm sure, and I'm also sure they must feel absolutely terrible when they find out in each of these cases that the person was holding a toy. My point is, it seems to me in both cases procedures could be looked at that would make something like this less likely to happen.

    All I know is I'm never buying my kid a bb gun.

    SO...the cops rolled onto the scene (because...they were called about a man aiming a gun at people)...and they found...what?
    A-A poor innocent little boy sitting on a bench and they gunned him down while he was eating a sandwich and a juicebox or
    B-The alleged suspect stepping towards them, raising his shirt, and reaching for a weapon

    Lets see how honest you are willing to be.

    Go ahead and buy him the BB gun. But before you purchase it, dont take it out of the box and run through WalMart, acting ;ike it is a real gun, threatening people with it and if you DO, at least for the love of all things holy, shout out "DONT WORRY!!! ITS JUST AN UNLOADED TOY BB GUN I TOOK FROM THE BOX HERE AT WALMART!!! IM NOT A REAL THREAT...JUST AN ASSHOLE!!!!!!"

    See...had he done that...he probably wouldnt be dead today and you wouldnt be living in fear of buying your kid an otherwise perfectly harmless weapon.

    Wouldn't you think if he did that there would be video of it (is there? I haven't seen it)? As far as I am aware, the witnesses that called the cops recanted their statements that he was being threatening with it.

    But, Vance, why does that even matter? I could just as easily call the cops and say you're doing that even if you aren't.

    *Edit:

    Which is what makes the prospect of "Swatting" so much scarier. How lucky is it that no one has been shot and killed yet?
