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.
    What gun owner had anything to do with this situation?

    Thanks for the link.

    Shooting was unnecessary and complete over kill (no pun intended). No officer's life was in danger. They got out of their cars and they STILL were not in immediate danger. They just started blasting away.

    Hey, I am all for cops killing bad guys. I am pro-DP. This incident though, is utter bull****. The cop should be put in jail but at the very least fired from his job.

    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

    The assertion you make is the one that is unacceptable - that the police assume everyone is armed and therefore must be shot. That is what you are arguing comes down to.

    "Why did you shoot that person, officer?"

    The officer: "Because I thought he might have a gun!"

    "Did he say he had a gun? Anyone say he had a gun? Did he point a gun at you? Did you see a gun? Did he reach in a way you thought he was going for a gun? Did he say he was going to shoot you or threaten you with a gun?"

    The officer: "No, none of those things. But you never know when someone might have a gun and is going to use it on you. I wasn't going to take any chances that he had a gun and was going to shoot me with it."

    Under your logic, the police could shoot anyone, everyone, at any time, under your anyone "might have a gun justifies shooting someone" theory.

    That is their job. If they can't or won't do it they should not be cops.

    I was a fire fighter for three years. Putting out a fire sounds easy, you should try it sometime. Those that can't do their job aren't fire fighters. Same thing. You put yourself in dangerous situations knowingly...

    That is not a difficult question for most people. He should have been arrested and taken to jail.

    Under some member's logic, no fire fighter should EVER take the slightest risks. All they should ever do is tape off the area and watch it all burn down. If anyone is trapped inside that's too bad, fire fighters shouldn't take any risks. Besides, one of those people might have a gun, might be delirous or a criminal. Or anything else could happen. Like all those risk taking firefighters on 911. What the hell were they thinking? Don't they know their only job is to keep themselves safe? So by all means stay away from fires - other than maybe pump kerosene on it to make it burn faster so they can leave faster back to the safety of the firehouse.

    That seems to be the attitude by some about the police. When in any doubt, shoot to kill.
