the answer is they don't have big enough guns yet, if we keep giving them bigger guns eventually it will be too inconvenient for them to shoot people

the article says the cop shot him with an assault rifle so its a good start

So has anyone gone through BLACK MAN's facebook, employment history, public records etc to find a reason to justify the whoops bullet?

I'm sure we can find something.

That doesn't look very scary. More like a six-foot penguin

A penguin huh? OK, try to imagine yourself in the Miami. You get your first look at this "six foot penguin" as you enter the streets. He moves like a slob, heavily, swaying from side to side. And you keep still, your arms held up, because you think that maybe he won't consider you a threat - he'll let you live if you don't move. But no, not the Miami Metro. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side,

[makes 'whoshing' sound]

from the other two cops you didn't even know were there. Because a law enforcement officer is a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he shoots at you with this...

[he produces Glock from his pocket]

A nine millimeter standard size pistol, like a gunslinger, on his right hip. He doesn't bother to shoot you in the extremities like an Euro Cop, say... no no. He shoots you here, or here

[he lightly pushes at the kid's chest with the pistol muzzle]

Or maybe maybe on your forehead, spilling your brains. The point is, you are dead before you drop. So you know, try to show a little respect.

OK.

A criminal justice system is going to differ based on its location (down to the county level) and individual judges. America is a big country.

A lot of phones stop recording after a certain length of time. The person recording probably didn't realize and didn't hit record again until after the shooting.

i mean if it was called in as "retard playing with a toy truck in the road" there's a statistically 5% lower chance cops would have showed up armed

This does bring to light a surefire way to get away with murder. Place an anonymous call to the police complaining of a man seen with a gun, sit back and watch your quarry get riddled full of bullets. Easy mode assassination.

This is pretty much what happened with the fat racist white guy who called the police on a black guy buying a bb gun at Walmart, which resulted in the black guy being killed. And even though there is video showing the caller completely lied about everything on his phone call he was never charged with any crime. lol

quote:


The 911 caller, Ronald Ritchie, also told reporters he was an "ex-Marine"óbut was found to have been kicked out of the Corps after only seven weeks on a charge of "fraudulent enlistment."

what I want to know is why the cops were still in full aggro mode with their weapons drawn because from the video it's pretty clear that the one guy is retarded and the black dude was not a threat, like it should have been even more clear to the cops because they were a lot closer
