    Not the actual shooting..

    Never a good time for this, but this looks even worse because of other shooting. Sounds like the cop was on edge already, jumpy..

    Dang, what are you supposed to do if you have a gun on you and the officer wants your ID which is also in your pocket. I wouldn't know how to react without making the officer feel threatened. Open the door with both my hands from the outside door handle? Let cop reach in your pocket?

    Words can't quite describe this. I wonder how long it will remain on YouTube.

    The woman is on a mission to communicate what happened. Really too bad she didn't begin recording earlier.

    Heartbreaking. I usually consider myself desensitized to much of what you see on the internet but that hurt to watch.

    Has anyone found a channel covering this? Maybe a stream from a local channel?

    We should wait till we get the officer's side of the story. So far we only have this woman.

    And there are black people on twitter that are calling for revenge and open season on cops

    Also here's the guy's mug shot

    just because you get a mug shot doesn't make you a felon. I got a mug shot for drinking underage misdemeanor like 10 years ago when I was 20. The article states he just had minor misdemeanors.

    Exactly. That means nothing. If things went down like the woman says they did then this cop is facing serious jail time.

    Don't give him any attention...reasoning him would be time wasted. He's already got a boner from being able to find something like that.


    Also, thought I'd Commodore a bit (even though it requires no actualy commentary :grin:)

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PhilandoCastile?src=hash">#PhilandoCastile</a> worked at a Montessori school.&quot;He was a gentle presence in the lunch room, such a nice person.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">His yearbook photo. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PhilandoCastile?src=hash">#PhilandoCastile</a> isn't just a hashtag.

    It is *amazing* how this is some people's response to a tragedy like this.

    Random guy shot and killed by police?

    Quick! Better point out how violently pissed X race is and start performing character assassination on the deceased!
