    Pull on a uniform, pin on a badge, strap up and you do it. Then tell us all how its done.

    There is no way anyone can answer this question, as they cannot read his mind.

    It's possible, I would guess.

    That is nonsense of course, not just police officers are allowed an opinion because if that were the case a lot more people are going to get killed without a good reason.

    The police has to be monitored by the public to make sure they do not abuse their powers. Two unarmed individuals riddled with a hundred bullets are most likely not that much of a threat anymore that some dirty harry wannabee has to jump on the hood of a car and shoot at the 2 people inside a number of times. The officers should have approached with guns drawn and assessed the situation, not go dirty harry.

    Especially because there was never one shot fired at them in the first place.

    So a 4000 pound car is not a weapon?
    Otherwise, were you there? You an eye witness?

    You do realize that your whole "you had to be there to have a valid opinion" spiel is just an indicator that you have no legitimate argument, right? All it is is a weak attempt to shut down opposing views without providing any substance. You can either effectively argue your side, or you cannot.

    Actually, no, you probably don't realize that. Carry on.

    I was not there. And neither was he. So the hyperbole and "appeal to emotion" about two poor unarmed blacks being "killed". Is total BS.

    It's done by not executing unarmed people as often as it seems happens.

    Are you being obtuse intentionally, or is it naturally unavoidable? My point was generic, as you have been using this same tactic in other similar threads lately, not case specific. I re-read my post and the fact that it's generic is obvious.
