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.
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??
Well, your personal bad luck withstanding...the Govt has to go by measurable stats for the whole nation.
I have a feeling that if the unemployment rate was around 10% you would be citing that to bash him with.
I take it you have NOT looked for a job in this economy. Nor tried to sell a car in this economy.... No one has any money to spare!!! That is MY indicator !!! You can depend on BS statistics but I prefer the real world indicators that I pointed to above !! It ***** out there !!
I will admit I am not an expert in unemployment figures and everything that goes into them, but looking at the Bureau of Labor Statistics I have to say things are not looking as bad as they once did.
The highest unemployment rate during the Bush years I could find on the graph was 5.8% on Mar 2004. As of now, there is only a 6.2%. Only a .4% difference but why isn't that reported?
From late 2006 til the time he left, the unemployment rose with Bush at the helm. From Oct of 2009, unemployment has steadily dropped with Obama.
Let's say that unemployment rates actually drop to the 4-5% average of the Bush years...will the Far Right then give Obama some credit?
What is O'N. ?
