PROGRESS!
A police officer in Ferguson, Missouri was removed from duty on Wednesday after being caught on video threatening to kill a reporter during the latest demonstration in the city.
rawstory.com
Sure doesn't sound like the cop was protecting himself if he shot this young man 6 times. Seems like he was shooting to kill. I have never heard a witness say anything different from the other witnesses. The only different story I have heard have come the police force and friends of the police officer. Camera's for all cops our society is too advanced for this he said I said BS. If cops aren't hiding anything then put camera's on them. Ferguson police chief: Officer didn't know Michael Brown was a suspect in robbery when stopped; was stopped for walking in street, blocking traffic.
Even if this guy was a criminal, even if he was the most vile horrendous person possible, justice in America is supposed to be found by a jury, not by the end of a gun. Lethal force is always supposed to be a last resort. Those of you foaming at the mouth in joy about "a thug getting what he deserved," those of you relishing about death, seem to be the real animals. J Foster
We need to look further into the issue of procedure and protocol. If they said it was a strong arm robbery or even a robbery with a weapon would you have approached or waited for back. Why would any altercation take place with you hanging partially out the window trying to grab someone and nothing has been released about him being in the back seat when this happened. Also what justifies a cop shooting an unarmed suspect multiple times. Its stop or I will shoot, he shot him once, he stopped put his hands up and instead of the cop keeping him in that position u til his back up arrived, he over reacted and shot him while in the surrender position. So no matter what the suspect did you do not need to defend yourself against a surrender suspect.
Black kid steal a cigar he's a thug and got gunned down, white kid shoot up a theater he's mental ill.
I forgot that suspicion justifies summary execution

Pssstttt shoot to kill is in mass area  shoot to wound is extremities. Wanna try again?
  • Especially with an entry wound at the top of the head, nothing screams "execution style" more than that.
