    There’s nothing wrong with trying to assign realism to the predictions about the future that politicians make. But that’s not fact-checking. It’s prediction-checking. And that is why PolitiFact’s very name is itself a “Pants on Fire” lie; it should instead be called “PolitiPrediction.” But that wouldn’t provide as much opportunity for self-righteous preening.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If you shoot a man in the back as he flees, fail to render aid, and falsify evidence you will be tried for murder (and hopefully executed).

    I *SERIOUSLY* doubt that. If he is I may go hold a damn sign somewhere myself.

    I disagree, Hat. There are some things that, once you've deliberately done them, you just don't come back from.

    And even if he'd had a functional taser.....it wouldnt work from that distance. The cop was in no danger.

    So I'm not sure that the 66% of HP's that missed make the world a safer place....
    NYPD is s horrid example, as their lack of accuracy has become legendary!

    And they have much less chance of penetrating their target and harming innocent bystanders. I prefer the philosophy that it's better to do real harm to suspects (since the bar for lethal force is a high one, despite the POS cop in this OP) than to do incidental harm to innocent people in the vicinity.

    Again, it is a life or death situation...so death is the presumed outcome when *lethal* force is warranted.

    Honestly? I dont. I think he deserves some level of a murder charge. His decision and actions were deliberate and the *personal* impression I get from the video is that he just couldnt be bothered to run after the man and restrain him. He (dead guy) was a big guy, it would have been a PIA probably, with some risk as in any physical encounter however cops are trained and expected to do deal with this.

    So just *my* impression from the video is a complete disregard for a life and a lazy POS cop that couldnt be bothered to do his job properly.
