    Different words, same statement - only less accurate.

    If you have ANYTHING to show that he wanted to be shot twice in the chest, present it. I think who got what he wanted was that officer. He wanted that 19 year old dead.

    After all the dust settled they found those bikers guilty and if this wasn't a cop they would have found him guilty too...

    Exactly, In that situation, they'd have taken the kid to jail, impounded the truck, and then when the father showed up the next day asked him if he still wanted to press charges. A SMART father would say "I need a day to think about it" and the next day say "no, not this time. I will next time."

    Then tell the kid "you're 19, so you got 30 days to get out of the house and on your own" - ending the parent - child relationship with the child in the role of a dependent minor child permanently. He's 19. Time to get out of the house and stop acting like a spoiled teenager reliant on his parents.

    No, they should have arrested him and taken him to jail. That's how it works.

    OH, that's right, in YOUR opinion it is perfectly legal to steal vehicles, provided you are an adult and steal the keys to that vehicle from a relative. You found the PERFECT way to legally steal vehicles. Just make sure you steal a company's vehicle by stealing the eyes from one of the employees. THAT - in your opinion - then makes it ok.

    The police knew this was NOT an armed suspect in grand theft auto. MAYBE, just MAYBE, you should listen to dispatch and to the call to the police.
    They knew. You we're there?? Do tell. DO TELL.

    In an police event you don't know who is armed. Ever. If I had a nickel for every time the police arrested someone and I was told a patient was unarmed and then to my shock found a patient was armed at the hospital...I'd have some dough. So your assumption falls right flat on it's face.

    However YOUR opinion, however laughable it is, assuming you are an adult, is noted.

    Just MAYBE, MAYBE you should chill and look at the big picture instead of running your mouth lol

    Re: Dad calls cops on son...cops shoot son

    In this case, I think the father was justified in calling the police. His kid stole his truck, and was obviously in a bad state mentally. On face value, a police officer firing 6 shots into a truck because the driver won't cut the engine sounds ridiculous. Although, there isn't enough info on what went down in the moments leading up to the shooting for anyone to say whether or not it was justified in my opinion.

More dead citizens and the Police claim they are doing the right thing and seem to have Federal support because the agencies are not investigated for promoting manslaughter or worse.
    Can you blame them, there are more gun owners out there and more nutballs out there then there ever have been. Of course this is going to increase the number of officers shooting people. When people think they can just say or do anything around a police officer because the constitution says they can, you going to have some conflicts. Officers, like people, run on emotion. If they feel threatened, or are taunted enough, they will act out. You don't poke a tiger with a stick, so why poke an officer with a gun. Does not seem very smart to me no matter what a piece of paper tells you your legally entitled to. Fight the officer in court, not on the street. If he is wrong, then it will be easy to prove it in a court of law. Which is what the constitution was designed to encourage. You have rights, sure.. But there is a time and place to fight that fight, and its not on the street with the officer, right or wrong.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
