Default So the black kid was a thief before a target

Cops did right to release info on this one- maybe a day or 5 too late.

Thoughts?

In the eyes of the people protesting and looting, it doesn't matter to them. This will be used as ammo.

"Is an African-American's life worth less than a pack of cigars?"

Bottom line for them is, they believe an unarmed black kid was shot by a white cop.

or "is immediate execution the new penalty for shoplifting cigars?"

regardless of your position on the situation, it is evident that treating people like American citizens works better than treating it like a war zone.

Kid robs store.
Cop goes looking for kid.
Cop says hey hold up we need to talk.
Then we get confused.....

(allegedly) Kid tries to shove cop back in car and wrestle side arm from him.

OR

Cop tries to get out of car and kid slams cop door shut closed on him and takes off runnin.

THEN

Cop shoots kid as he flees.

Hmmm, thief, disrespect for authority....I didn't even see what color the kid was during this whole thing. It's kinda like the other kid who ran out onto a race track and got killed. Stupid actions bring stupid results.

Quit using logic.
I am not a believer in a police state. Nor am I a believer in stops without reasonable suspicion. However, when stopped by a cop, I am a believer in respecting him as he is trying to do his job. While he is doing his job, if a person cooperates and respects the cop, the outcome should be ok. On the other hand, if you don't follow directions, bad things can happen. It seems pretty logical that if you mess with the guy with the gun, you will probably lose.

"Is an African-American's life worth less than a pack of cigars?"

Nobody's life is worth less than a pack of cigars, however the kid didn't shoplift them, it was a strong arm robbery. So if the "kid" was willing to do that for a pack of cigars, what is he really capable of doing, if he is willing to do that is it out of the question he would attempt to disarm a cop? If it was strong arm robbery for a pack of cigars today, what is the plan for tomorrow? Armed robbery? Who knows, that is why people pay the cops, to go and catch the bad guys. Kids shop lift, thugs strong arm rob people...and if you think it stops with the one pack of cigars you are dead wrong. Offenders almost always get more violent and more brazing with each success....but here is the indisputable facts, none of known the facts and everything is speculation at this point.

I also find it funny the masses claim the thug was innocent, but the cop is guilty. Even if the cop had a bad shoot, he is still innocent until proven guilty, the very same thing people are bitching about the thug but yet refuse to apply the same constitutional protection to the cop

We have judges for a reason, cops are not judges, cop pulls me over, I take my medicine and move on for the day, at the end of the day I request my hearing with the judge. The judge/jury will then decide my fate. I don't get shot.

Seems easy enough to me.

I suggest arguing with him/her, make sure you use the phrase, "I know my rights"

Yeah, I know my rights, and one of them is to know when to shut my fuckin yapper and not make a situation worse. I'm not in control when I get pulled over, and spewing a bunch of shit about knowing my rights certainly doesn't make it any better.

I was always taught as a kid you don't run from cops, that give them the right to shoot your ass (slight exaggeration) but why aren't these thugs being taught not to run, fight, argue? oh, yeah, becauyse they are thug fucking animals, that is why.

I hope you'd also know when to open your yapper and exercise your rights. Sometimes it's needed. 98% of the time you have to take it on the chin because you fucked up-(otherwise you wouldn't be pulled over ) The rare 2% occurrence, don't bend an inch on the laws that protect us.

Sad thing is, they are being taught TO run, fight, argue all to gain "respect." I got pulled over going 70 in a 55. I was honest, kept my hands visible and didn't have a Fucking attitude. The officer told me to slow down and thanked me for my honesty. (cool story bro!)

Followed by "You work for me mutherfucker!" This always works for me. Cops back down right away once they realize who they're dealing with.

Yahoo news was saying some local rapper possibly has video of the shooting.
That could shed some light on this. You can bet if it was a police brutality video,
It would have been on you tube in minutes!

Or the story is bs possibly.
