    Nope...That's the liberal motto. They luv big government and trust it from cradle to grave. I don't trust many politicians in government, however overall, I tend to trust police departments.

    There is legal precedence and justification for shooting at a fleeing suspect.

    If the perp had just killed/shot/stabbed another individual, a reasonable person/cop would believe letting him get away could endanger others in the community.

    I knew neither of the individuals involved, so I don't really care if he is guilty or not - just that he receive proper justice and that people wait to decide his guilt or innocence until the matter has gone through the courts and not convict him through the media.

    Good day.
    Doctored video,? You mean edited? Like it cuts off something that might have shown Mr. Scott doing something that would have justified his being shot? Logically that makes no sense, as the only other weapon in play was a tazer. Now I could understand if the officer shot mMr. Scott in the act of trying to use a tazer on him, as a tazer could render him incapacitated and give Mr. Scott access to his weapon, but at the point where the video picks up, we see the wires from the tazer in Mr Scott and he is fleeing.

    There is nothing in the officers own report, his own words that indicates that there was some other weapon in play.

    What could have happened before the video starts that would have justified being shot in the back several seconds and at least 15' to 20' from the officer moving away with his back to him? I'm curious what would have justified in your mind the actions taken by the officer.

    I'm a reasonable person, I'd like to think I call things as I see them, but I just can't even imagine that there is anything that could have taken place before the video starts, given the officers own report written in his own words....Or perhaps I just lack imagination....

    But the only time it matters (and the OP so very clearly illustrates it) is when it is a WHITE cop and a black victim.

    Not a ton of outrage when it is a white guy shot by a cop. or a Latino. And if the cop is black? Fuggedaboudit....




    But what do the headlines say in THIS case?

    "Video Shows Officer Michael Slager Shooting Unarmed Black Man In The Back In South Carolina"

    Cause it only matters when the victim is a black man.
    Outrageous crime by that officer. What is happening on it?

    That was not the situation.

    Dropping it later? That is calculating a lie.

    I bet that officer does less than 5 years hard time - at worse. Anyone disagree?

    Let's hear our police junkies defend this one?
    I'm confident he'll do at least twenty years, probably more. And I don't know any "police junkies" here, only justice junkies.

    The only crying here is yours, you were wrong but refuse to admit it.

    There were multiple Officers on the scene.
    You have no clue as to which Officers the report was referring.

    Nothing you provided shows he gave CPR.
    Nothing you provided says he said he gave CPR.
    Nothing you have provided says he lied.
    Video shows the guy dead or dying on the ground for about a minute without any indication CPR was even tried - the officer who shot the man simply handcuffed him face down, and the next officer on the scene just keeled by the handcuffed man/body and looked at it.

    Anyone who tried to perform CPR after that scene is ****ing disturbing, unless of course there's a specific requirement that someone try even if the person is obviously dead.

    Re: Video Shows Officer Shooting Unarmed Black Man in South Carolina

    I asked early on how long before the police junkies were on this thread - and they came. Their opinion is simple: Police should kill anyone any officer thinks should be killed. Their reasoning is that no police officer would think someone should be killed if there wasn't a reason the officer thought so.

    In addition, they'll add in if the police officer is prosecuted, no police will ever do their job again.

    And often such people get on juries. Although they swear an oath to follow the law, as you see on this thread like others they hate the law and absolutely would not uphold any law in relation to police.

    The Supreme Court has ruled police can not kill someone merely for fleeing. That makes it the law of the land and every police officer knows it. However, to police junkies, ever police officer is the law of the land.
