Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
His judgement wasn't wrong. He chose a non-lethal submission technique. He did grab the wrong weapon, but that wasn't a judgement call, that was a mistake. He never intended to shoot the man.
Though its not a particularly good idea to run from the law, as you set up circumstances of the other guy's bad judgment, the idea that the suspect is culpable is a bit over the top.
No its not! It had absolutely nothing to do with it! Watch the video.BTW, the other exasperating factor here was that the suspect was black.
The trend I see is the trend of cop hating jack asses pointing at every death of a black man as a clear sign of racism without any proof. Meanwhile, there have been black cops that killed white kids and not one of you assumed that was racist. I wonder why that is? Is it only white cops that are capable of racism? Because if think that when race A kills race B it is automatically racism but the reverse is not, then you are racist against race A.In case you haven't seen a trend here, all of these situations that have been discussed on DP have been white police officers shooting at unarmed black men. Maybe I am the only one seeing the pattern. It would be interesting for someone to check that out: is there a pattern?
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

I don't know if the police committed any crimes in this case. That is for the people responsible for investigating it to determine. It's impossible to say how much process a person injured or killed by police was due without knowing all the facts. When a man police know has just killed people levels his gun at them, and they fire and kill him, they have not deprived him of life without due process of law.
But I think it's good to keep in mind that about one million American men have died, often very young, often alone, and often in agony, to secure the constitutional rights we enjoy as a free people. When so much blood has been shed to protect those rights, none of us should ever take any violation of any of them by government, or any agent of government, lightly.
