    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    Is that relevant? I can tell you I've never assumed someone was shooting at me just because I heard a loud noise. The officers came to a flawed conclusion and acted with deadly force based on faulty presumption.

    Because the Officer was acting in good faith in the performance of his duties, not acting with intent to commit a felony.
    What? Is just driving a car now a threat to police? It seems no matter how small the provocation, some believe the police should be allowed to escalate without accountability.

    No, it's not justification to be shot: the suspect car backfired which led the cops to believe that they were armed...

    Secondly, cops go instantly into "fight or flight" when someone runs. Your chances of being injured or killed as a result of running (especially in a car) go up to around 100%. As I said, those two are dead because they decided to run, just like that 50 year old in S. Carolina.

    Well you can't use the back fire excuse if cars don't back fire anymore. there has to be an explanation for the sound and a gun shot is more likely than a back fire.

    I'm glad the cop's okay. Those two in the car are dead because they ran from the cops.
    Yes, because execution as the punishment certainly fit the crime. So when did sharia law become the norm in the US? Are we going to start cutting off the hands of shoplifters next?

    Right. In the 20 miles, they couldn't have simply pulled over, raised their hands and done as the officers told them? Or maybe not run in the first place?
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    Not driving alone, but how the vehicle is driven.

    Sounds like a good idea to me.
