Perhaps the dead boy was wearing the same hat and tee shirt as the perp in the video? Also, if you had just rob a store and were pulled over by police, wouldn't the perp tend to act as a perp? Even if the cop did not know the boy was involved in a robbery, could the boy been acting a little weird during the confrontation and the cop trying to figure out why? Just saying. Maybe we should wait for some more information and stop burning things.
Also, where is peace keeper Jesse Jackson when you need him?
As for the looting, it's wrong of course but shouldn't effect the outcome of the investigation.
If those cops did shoot him in the back for no legal reason, they should go to prison. I think we all can agree on that.
" just after robbing a store and assaulting the shop owner or so the video shows."
Now wait..let the courts decide if that's him on that poor quality video.
Beyond the silliness, what is the punishment for unarmed robbery anyway? Being shot in the back?
Forgive me that I can't recall the official that said it but there was no connection between what transpired earlier at the store and what happened with the cops later.
"where is your evidence of what transpired?"
Dead body...away from the cop car, no weapon with the teen.
This is what the police have said happened at the very least. Do you disagree with this and if so..what is your reasoning?
The only thing that will assuage my outrage is some new shoes
I feel like stealing some shoes and a bottle of Gin
This fine young man was on his way to church I am sure, just after robbing a store and assaulting the shop owner or so the video shows. WHAT A LOSS.
NO JUSTICE, NEW SHOES
Again, where is your evidence of what transpired? I don't know what happened and I wont know until the investigation is complete. YOU on the other hand seem to have come to some conclusions based on ......... well nothing really
Let's just say we are working on speculation Tired.
Perhaps you can speculate why a police officer would feel the need to shoot a fleeing suspect with no known weapon in a residential area.
No Justice, NEW SHOES
SORRY MOD, did I miss the trial of the police officer involved?? I know I must have because you wouldn't be assuming guilt without cause right?
It helps your cause to shoot unarmed persons in the back, and then continue to shoot after they turn and face you with their hands raised above their head in a universally recognized position of submission,not.
It always helps your cause when you burn a convenience store down.
Why would the Justice department investigate “early voting” in Ohio while ignoring all the other states that have less early voting or no early voting? This is racial politics at his finest. This will be one part of his legacy he can’t run away from.
And why would anyone do that?
No JUSTICE NEW shoes, NO JUSTICE, NEW SHOES say it with me yall
I will say that if even a fraction of what eye witnesses says is true, they should tack those cops butt to the wall.
It is extremely hard to imagine why a cop should feel the need to shoot a person in the back as they flee.
They are probably trying to curb any chance of it turing into something like the Trayvon Martin situation or get into something as bad as the LA Riots back in the 90's.
Him and the AG are sure paying attention to the Ferguson Missouri incident. Some of the police in this country are getting way out of hand. They even arrested a journalist covering the story. They are hard on everyone but a minority walking down the center of the road has little chance... And what is up with that??
