    I was referring to the facts of this case, he was talking about police shootings in general. See the difference? (uhhhhhh)

    You see, like you did.
    Its remarkable watching you dance around on this.

    I never mentioned race. I never brought up race. Nobody else mentioned race, not even the article in the op.
    And yet you immediately accused me or racism.

    Now do tell, how have I "assumed that racial stereotypes must apply"

    Are you able to quote the article specifically or provide the study from the organization who gathered and analyzed the statistics? When you're ready to do that maybe this goes somewhere.
    First of all its not, I was able to go to the article, read through it, and post the stats I did-im not a subscriber. I have no idea why you can't. Second, additional stats from other sources have been cited in this thread, they were actually worse than mine.

    And there is plenty more out there, which you could find at any time. What you are doing, is attempting to dismiss sources to fit your own biased view, essentially sticking your fingers in your ears and saying "I can't hear you!". Maybe its because you dont like what the facts are.

    And for the record, Im not just a Paramedic, I also practice medicine and will have my medical doctorate by late spring.

    He really really wanted you use racial stereotypes...really really bad.

    Maybe that police department should consider changing to handguns with more stopping power. I recall seeing video of a criminal who had been hit eleven times with 9mm bullets but was still running around and shooting back. He was able to get into a police car, start it, and roar away. He finally died from loss of blood after he'd driven a few hundred yards down the road.

    On what specific page of the autopsy report does it state Laquan McDonald was alive after being shot 5 times because "blood accumulated in his plural space and subdural space."

    "I have a medical background." Ever conducted an autopsy? Or did you sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night?
    You dont have enough background knowledge to even know what you dont know.
    The heart (and arteries) pump blood-pressure is required for blood to flow. The fact that blood accumulated where it did (around the lung/brain) can only happen if the heart pumped it there. Dead people dont bleed, rather blood is forced towards the ground via gravity.

    And once again, the autopsy report does not state the sequence of shots-nor can it-all it can tell as far as shot sequence is if shots were made while the patient was alive or dead and even then during the agonal phase thats hard to do.

    I have participated in dozens of autopsies, btw, it was part of my education. They are always led by a forensic pathologist.

    You shouldn't post any Cash. He surely wouldn't have taken the authoritarian stance and blindly supported law enforcement and the result of this incident.

    Cops went looking for a suspect, found this guy in bed in the basement (not the suspect), he was unarmed, "they fired in a darkened bedroom," and they shot him 16 times. Didnt identify their target, he was unarmed, and they then didnt even manage to kill him with 16 shots? The shootings were found to be justified and the cops are still on the job.

    *smh*
    Goodness, that's a system that's clearly broken. Can't imagine how in hell those shooters are still on the job.
