    I'm mostly curious as to how certain BBSers will attempt to assassinate this black man's character first and foremost, something about "he shouldn't have gotten pulled over in the first place". or "running away from the cops makes it okay for you to get shot".

    Too bad there's a video of it actually happening, seems suspicious, the cop probably had a completely different story which we should always trust no matter what. Video must be wrong, cops always tell the truth, he was fearing for his life as the man was running away from him!

    Reason #4.576 that only the police should have firearms. They are the only ones professional enough and trained in their usage.


    "I don't want a bunch of yahoos shooting their guns when trying to save someone's life. Leave it to the cops!!!"

    Watching CNN and a guy said it looked like the cop dropped the tazer near the black teen and then went and picked it back up.

    Cops never do anything wrong. We simply don't have enough facts. This guy probably smoked a weed cigarette three days ago. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    **** the police state

    Waiting for those responses; also waiting for the, "but at least the cop gets to go home to his family."

    "I feared for my life" has become a popular excuse for people with guns who kill people... Especially when there's no video and things have to be left up to the imagination and the 2nd party can't tell their side because they're dead.

    I suppose the good news is that at least this time it's a legit example of police wrongdoing that will be used to push the same old narratives.

    Not at all. But cops having guns hurt it in the fact he murdered someone. Take guns away from cops.

    Exactly, cops should only be armed with a whistle, it would make things a lot better.
