    Funny, but I was unaware that having warrants and running requires immediate execution.

    I have not yet seen anything in the OH Revised Code indicating that immediate execution is an accepted action for these - I'll bet that SC law is the same.

    At best, running from a cop is a misdemeanor charge that must be charged, and requires a court of law to decide guilt or innocence.

    At the time of the shooting, Scott was an innocent man, and should have been treated as such.

    So you assume that what this video captured is the normal behavior of police officers?

    Let me help you out. It doesn't.

    No it's not wrong. It all started because of a broken taillight.

    And you are sounding like someone who's trying very hard to look for excuses for this cop. He then ran huh? That should tell us all we need to know here. The guy was 20 feet from the cop, and running away from the cop when the cop started shooting! The officer was in no way in danger.

    Anyway I'm not going to get into a pissing contest about the specifics in this case. The fact is we have a much bigger problem in this country. Many cops have a shoot 1st and ask questions later attitude towards their jobs. And something needs to be done.

    Think of how many times this has happened when someone did not have a cell phone camera.

    If this cop is found guilty, I hope he roasts in prison for the rest of his life.

    Unbelievable.....


    So is this how we should approach all crimes caught on camera? Do we assume that the criminal is only the tip of an iceberg of crime committed by those associated to the criminal?

    That is because, up till video cameras on the streets, they have gotten away with it.

    The times, they are changing, and in favor of citizens.

    Oy vey. No it doesn't.
    There are multiple Officers on the scene in the final video segment.
    Not once was it claimed that he performed CPR, but you sure did jump to the conclusion that he said he did (which he didn't) which made him a liar in your eyes.

    Or that police corruption is just now the tip of the iceberg of rampant criminal activity by cops.

    And, they have gotten away with it for years. Cops should have to take a year off every few years, so they can re-join the real world, decompress a bit, live in a world where they don't have authority over others, and spend time with people who are not criminals. A sanity sabbatical from time to time.

    Initial Police reports said that officers performed CPR and delivered first aid to Mr. Scott.

    That in itself is disturbing. They did no such thing. Disgraceful.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
