He is being painted as a saint. He had priors. What is you point? I am sure we will know ever detail of the police officer including birthmarks before it is over.
The video of him ruffing of the clerk in store is a video of him ruffing up a clerk in a store. The public can judge for themselves.
One more thing: Al Sharpton really helped out things with his speech, didn't he?
"The kid had priors but we are not supposed to talk about that." Who would say something something like that?
"I think that everyone on this thread would agree If the officer shot this kid "like and animal" like his buddy said than the officer needs to go to jail."
"Don't confuse civil unrest with a thieving mob. BIG DIFFERENCE"
Yes there is and both are going on in that area. So it would benefit everyone not to assume that the civil unrest is related to the idiots that are looting.
"Don't need to have a weapon to get yourself shot,"
That's exactly what a weaselly little punk would say.
"as big as that boy was he is a weapon."
Except this "weapon" was running away.
I think that everyone on this thread would agree If the officer shot this kid "like and animal" like his buddy said than the officer needs to go to jail.
And I do not see any police trying to defend the officer.
They are doing three and maybe more autopsies on that kid.
But they won't know what was going on in the officer's or the kid's head.
The kid had priors but we are not supposed to talk about that.
Jesse has the Power to be a peace keeper in this case or stoke the fire.
No justice No peace. No justice No peace.
"Also, where is peace keeper Jesse Jackson when you need him?" That sounds racist, beright.Just saying!
Didn't the chief say the officer emptied his gun?We know they found no weapon.The officer wasn't aware of the security video at the time of the shooting,but even if he did,his response was extreme.Why did he continue to use deadly force. Remember, no weapon,tired.
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?
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.
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?
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.
