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





    And points a gun at them. Isnt that like.... Terrorism or something? Threatening a political movement with death? (or someone covering it)

    Shouldnt the cops have shot the rogue cop dead? Some dude with a knife threatened a cop and they shot him dead. This cop points an assault weapon at weaponless, peacefull protesters and threatens to kill him and yet no cops shot him. Maybe if the cop was black the other cops would have shot him?

    There probably isn't a day that goes by when I don't shout at the TV 'go **** yourself" to some asshole "journalist" who thinks they run the world and are entitled to be anywhere and do anything they want.

    That said, the officer was out of line and should be pulled from this duty immediately and perhaps should also have a long, forced, break from any duty. It's impossible to know what stress he's been under the past couple of weeks in Ferguson - probably no less stressful than some have had trouble coping with in wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The officer is clearly at a dangerous point in his mental state, but I'm not prepared to call him a terrorist.

    Eh. He lost his temper, from the looks of things. I don't think he was actually planning on shooting anyone.

    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

    Given the looks of our police nowadays, he might as well be.

    No, but the situation is vaguely comparable.

    I believe you meant racist last comment, you are grasping at straws to inflame the situation to advance your anarchist ideals no better than Al Sharpton

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

    The cop clearly appeared to be out of line but I wish people would remember that there are always two sides to every story.

    I would think police in that part of America are pretty nervous about now.

    It does not excuse his behavior...but I think it should be kept in mind while watching this.

    I was engaged to a cop's daughter and that is a profession that can be extremely tough to deal with sometimes...let alone when you are surrounded by hostile people during a very bad situation.
