    Tell that to the police chief who was absolutely disgusted by the video and immediately fired that officer.

    Yes, there's legal justification for shooting a fleeing suspect... when they are a significant physical threat to the officer or community. That was not the case here.

    Its strange that such positions are rarely seen in the liberal progressives. I wonder why the far right is always quick to defend the most apparent police excess and abuse of their power when we see it.

    It was reported the arrest warrant was for not paying child support.

    One has to wonder that if you can get shot for a felony as benign as this then what sort of instance would a shooting possibly be non justifiable ? This sort of thing would be dealt with by social workers here in the UK not trigger happy law enforcement

    Thank you for proving my point. Dehumanizing an entire group of people is the essence of hate and arguably a form of hate speech.

    how about most cons/pubs wait for evidence and then try to make a reasonable decision based upon facts

    most libs/prog want to yell murder anytime a black man is shot

    and they arent waiting a lot of the time to find out what happened before the yelling starts

    michael brown and trayvon martin are two perfect examples

    in this case, based upon the video the cop is guilty.....i doubt you can find anyone that doesnt think so

    some of us are asking what happened in the prior five minutes before the video was shot.....

    does that change the fact the cop is guilty....no.....but it might change the charge from murder II to manslaughter based on what the evidence finds

    again...evidence...sometimes it matters

    Police: Dash cams don't show S.C. police shooting


    Bit more difficult if we went to body cams.

    ISIS dehumanized their self by torturing people to death just for being different.



    "Cops" as a class don't do such things as a matter of policy or common practice. Apples and Orangutans....
