    So other nations don't have a military? Or are you saying they all use the UCMJ too?

    And the police have a code they have to adhere to.

    Situations escalate when good policing should seek to de-escalate the potential for violence.
    Yeah...honestly? I dont think that was a lack of training. I think this incident was a calculated response. He was deliberate in both his draw and aim. Regardless of what preceded the shooting, there is no way that can be explained as anything other than an intentional act.

    The cops that I know before they were cops? No way you would want one of those guys being cops... makes you wonder about the rest.

    You are speaking absolute nonsense.

    That isn't what happens.

    What you are speaking to is tantamount to blackmail and malfeasance.

    More nonsense.

    Really?
    Then by all means please provide this documentation so we can all judge if you are lying or not.

    Being negative about this officer says nothing about whether or not there is empathy (or no empathy) for the family of the officer.

    And sorry for his family, but this rotten excuse for a police officer executed and murdered an unarmed person and then tried to lie about it and make it into a self defense case, something that this is not (totally not).

    Assuming you have watched the video...what is your interpretation of the occurrence beginning at the 17 second point of the film? What was the physical altercation, what was the black thing the guy dropped on the ground, and why did he run from the cop?
    That black thing was likely the tazer that the guy took as reported by the Officer.

    At the moment of the shooting it doesn't appear as the Officer knew he threw it down.
    If so, this would indicate that the Officer (in his mind) was responding to an actual threat.

    That information and whether he moved the tazer after the fact and why, may be the difference between manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter and that of a murder conviction.

    Just stop with your nonsense.
    You have no idea of the facts. All you have is a made up scenario in your head and used that to prejudge the person.

    As soon as this hit the airwaves one knows it is going to bring out the race baiters on both sides. It is so predictable.
    Team A: Another racist white cop shoots another unarmed black man.
    Team B: The racists are "celebrating" this tragedy.

    Forget the race for a moment but that is a pathetic piece of video. I put it up there with the video of a nanny beating a little child. Of course people react and are disgusted but I really don't think many of us are "celebrating".
