    Still desperately trying to move that goal post I see.

    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 want to make it clear that if the guy pulled a gun on the police officer, there are very few people in this country that would say it wasn't justifiable to shoot him.

    Just stop it. This holier than thou attitude is almost too much to take. We aren't cops being called into these situations.

    well said

    way too much hate and discontent with our police forces around the nation today

    i almost wish they would all go on a sickout for three to four days

    i can see the people now.....afraid to leave their own damn houses

    NO ONE is saying the police are perfect.....or that there arent a few bad apples

    but this has gotten ridiculous.....

    some of those protesting ought to pick up a badge......and see how easy they think the job is

    That it seemed to have the majority of the information I've seen so far (and some I haven't, regarding the gun pictures), and all in all it was a pretty decent write up.

    I just don't think there's a lot of new "news" coming out on this isuse yet.

    What goons? Please describe. You're talking John Crawford or Levar Jones?

This thread is discussing the general issues - race, police brutality, guns, etc. - but I haven't seen posts that have info or evidence that sheds more light on what happened.

    Should I try to post another thread to ask these questions? I thought this thread was the right place to raise these points but apparently nobody is interested in debating the basic facts in this incident but are rather going into other more general directions.

    Discussing guns in a thread about two guns is apparently a no no and there is video of the incident on the internet if you wish to seek it out. I have seen it linked on other sites.

    I thought you brought up some good questions. I was hoping someone would be able to provide more updated information too but I can't seem to find any yet. Just the one video with the grainy footage is all I could find. If you find something else to further support either hypothesis I would appreciate you posting it here.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    It is if a moderator feels you are derailing the thread, and making it about gun control rather than the incident itself...But, take it from me, you really don't want to discuss this sort of thing in the thread..

    ...so a guy comes out of an open store with a grocery bag in his hand, talks to another guy a minute, and then starts walking across the parking lot of an open business with evidence of having just been a patron at that open business...
    That is totally made up...Please provide proof that this was the case.

    ...an officer on an alleged routine patrol...
    So you think he wasn't on patrol? Was he out stalking black men to kill?

    found what reason to find that suspicious enough to enter onto the private property and initiate an encounter with his business' customers?
    The reason to initiate an encounter with the two could be a number of things...Could be that they were loitering, and he was going to tell them to move along...But, at the point the man pulled a gun on the cop that was over.

    I've seen the video. It is taken from a distance and in my opinion it is not conclusive.
