    We also cannot assume that every incident like this is racial. The man that was shot was not listening to commands, he appeared impaired on drugs, which were found in his system. The guy was given a chance to survive and did not respond to police officers. I really don't like to say how a cop should act or not act...I don't have a job where I interact with strangers all day and fear for my life. We have many guns on the streets, many murders involving guns. These incidents are unfortunate...but this is our new norm with the millions of guns in circulation.

    The jury heard all the evidence and said not guilty.

    Does the left not believe in our justice system?

    Probably not.

    All the cop probably knew was that he was acting erratically, refusing her orders, walked to his vehicle and reached inside.

    Plus whatever he said to her.

    And whatever happened before the video.

    He may have threatened to shoot her, for all we know.

    They flat out lied. It's physically impossible for him to have reached inside his truck.

"The doors are open. The vehicle is still running. It's an SUV. It's like in the middle of the street. It's blocking traffic."

    "There was a guy running from it, saying it was going to blow up. But I think he's smoking something. I got out and was like, 'Do you need help?'" "He was like, 'Come here, come here, I think it's going to blow up.'"[citation needed] The other caller said: "There is a car that looks like somebody just jumped out of it and left it in the center of the road on 36th Street North and North Lewis Avenue." "It's dead in the middle of the street." "It's a Navigator. The driver-side door is open like somebody jumped out. It's on the yellow line, blocking traffic. Nobody in the car."[11]

    I intermingled a few other potential reasons in there. Bottom line, if someone who wears a gun on their hip for a living tells you to stop, turn around, jump up and down on one foot while howling at the fucking moon, it's not going to hurt you in the least to comply. It might momentarily damage your pride, but it won't make you permanently dead, like refusing/escalating the situation might.

    I'm just looking out for the stupids. seriously.

    You are reading the cop's version. His vehicle was in the middle of the road stopped and he did wave his arms flagging them down. The video shows all you need to see. The actual shooting moments later where the view is removed is a matter of seconds not hours.

    No, three times you put the blame on the parents. That's bullshit. Do you blame the rape victims for what they wear, too?
