    I'm all for the man getting a fair trial, but that doesn't stop me from having an opinion.
    Yeah, the biggest straw man in the universe is something like this. Anytime anyone disagrees on a criminal case, you hear it. "HES NOT GUILTY THERE HASNT BEEN A TRIAL YET!"

    No ****, sherlock. At no point did anyone suggest we skip due process of law.

    Dinkins expanded the plan after that as well.
    NYPD hires white people roughly in proportion to the white population there.

    Maybe you were just a bad candidate.

    Idk if you watch the news...but someone suggests it every damn time. The lynch mobs are not uncommon.

    I scored in the 98% percentile, I was the perfect candidate, you can show links to this in the late 80's?

    However they may not be obligated to defend him since he was fired.

    That I don't know.
    Or just that the suspect still had it as he ran and remained an active threat.

    We'll see how it plays out but it's very damning.

    I agree. I'm not saying if it's right or wrong. I'm just saying it is telling.

    However they may not be obligated to defend him since he was fired.
    Well 1st they should fight his firing, but they're not doing that either. Again, telling.

    I'm all for the man getting a fair trial, but that doesn't stop me from having an opinion.

    And right now my opinion is that Slager is going down.

    Yes, I saw the video plus I saw the part where he fought the police officer creating a threat

    You are doing the same damn thing others have been doing.
    The answer you seek has already been provided.

    No, it really does not appear that way when one carefully and thoroughly examines the video.

    Examine the following frames in the below quote.

    The Officer's hands are occupied. The left hand is holding on to the suspect, and the right hand is already in a downward movement to draw his firearm prior to the supposed taser coming into the frame.
    (a downward movement, not a backwards movement.)
    The force and direction of the supposed taser's movement shows it is impossible for it to have come from the downward movement of the Officer's hand.
    And it can clearly be seen that the Officer's hand is not in a position for a taser to have been knocked from it. That simply didn't happen.

    Then the second frame shows that the Officer is already drawing his firearm before the taser touches the ground, again showing it hadn't come from, or knocked from, the Officer's hands.

    Dismissible on three fronts
    1. That is an appeal to authority, and as such, irrelevant.
    2. Given what the video actually shows, it is unlikely that the Chief gave it a careful or thorough examination. Nor was he or his department the ones who made the charge for arrest purposes.
    3. Knows the law? Officers have a general knowledge, but are not any more informed to the intricacies of the law and how it is applied.
    e.g.: The detective who wanted to charge Zimmerman even though the evidence wasn't there to support such charge.

    Irrelevant to debate.

    A myth.
    Like the populace in general, some Officer's are better at observation than others.

    Most observational skills an Officer has are innate or come from on the job experience.

    Officers are trained to react to stimuli.
    This training helps them overcome the heightened traumatic state they may find themselves in during encounters, and though not always, it better prepares them to act without freezing.

    But none of this eliminates the possibility that the Officer will experience tunnel vision which such a heightened state may induce.
    So of course he may not have seen the suspect throw the taser.


    Quote Originally Posted by  j-mac  View Post

    Irrelevant to the point that the had it when the Officer began to draw his firearm.


    Quote Originally Posted by  j-mac  View Post

    It clearly does not show that. The thrown taser could have only come from the suspect.
    Why would he throw it?
    Because he saw the Officer drawing his firearm after he received a warning.
