    I also heard people yelling "my hands are up". I also heard "I will ****ing kill you".

    Re: Officer "Go **** Yourself" Threatens to kill journalist

    I do not have a big problem with the go **** yourself comment he gave. He might have been under a lot of stress lately and he will have been talked too too pleasantly in the past few days either. I also do not have a problem with him having his gun raised if he saw something that was threatening behavior but keeping his gun raised like that when there was obviously no need for him to walk through the protesters with at all (walking along side them would have been just as effective) but doing that while his gun was raised the entire time, that is what is the worst part for me.

    I do not know if he was intending to impede a peaceful gathering/demonstration or that he was just trying to terrorize the protesters or try to incite violence and trouble, I do not know. Fact is that a police force cannot justify someone acting like that in a highly polarized situation. Because some asshole cop like that could have caused a huge problem. Now it is only an image problem and for the officer a (hopefully) reprimand problem but it could have caused more bloodshed and violence.

    And how about stand your ground laws? Would the protesters have been allowed to "stand their ground" and shoot the cop? He did pose an obvious and clear danger to the protesters who were walking with their hands in the air or filming a demonstration?

    I may need to take a closer look but I'm pretty sure that was an assult rifle not an assult weapon.

    What's more important in my mind is that no bystander shot that cop. We say we have arms to prevent tyranical government, but when the government actually does become tyranical we just sit back and take video.

    One solution is to pay cops more and attract higher-quality people.

    Honestly though, I have a hard time getting worked up over this kind of thing.

    Screaming "STAY BACK OR I WILL F*CKING SHOOT YOU!!! DO YOU F*CKING UNDERSTAND?!?!" is basically what the military explicitly trains you to do in those kinds of situations. lol
    He's not in the military. This pisses me off SO MUCH. This cop should be fired, period. You can't go around pointing your gun at non-violent people telling them you're going to kill them. A police officer just can't do that; it is so wrong and so dangerous. This guy is just not qualified for the job.

    Fired, sure, but he also belongs in prison.
