Such a sick world we live in. How many times have police lied about deaths like this and gotten away with it?

People run from the cops all the time. You expect them to run. People don't like being arrested. You don't let your guard down, but if you fear for your life every time you pursue a suspect, you're in the wrong field of work. This was a routine traffic stop involving an unarmed man. Any time someone ends up dead in this situation, the officer made a mistake.

see, your father was a cop, you're not an *******. the only other option is that javi is a racist who thinks blacks always present a significant threat.

hey javi, if you're right, why is the cop in jail on no-bail murder charges?

in before "obv the liberal media."

A man in fear for his life because someone is running away from him has no business being a cop.

The job of cops is to protect and control. In particular, to prevent violence. Even if "justified", shooting someone is never a good outcome for a cop, because it means that basic policing failed, even if the failure was someone else's fault.

Shooting someone in the back is pretty much always criminal.

and how many non-fatal incidents have they lied about? In and out of the police station.

Everything must be recorded.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

nope... in this guy's world he immediately looks for how the cop could be justified, and fails miserably while doing so.

javi is pretty much the definition of a nut-low human being. no outrage over a man being killed for no-good reason, only "how the **** is the justifiable."

cop apologists are the worst. i'd bet most cops wouldn't even take this guys position.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

http://thinkprogress.org/justice/201...ally-happened/

Quote:
A statement released by North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said a man ran on foot from the traffic stop and an officer deployed his department-issued Taser in an attempt to stop him.
That did not work, police said, and an altercation ensued as the men struggled over the device. Police allege that during the struggle the man gained control of the Taser and attempted to use it against the officer.
The officer then resorted to his service weapon and shot him, police alleged.
Quote:
“When confronted, Officer Slager reached for his Taser — as trained by the department — and then a struggle ensued,” Aylor said. “The driver tried to overpower Officer Slager in an effort to take his Taser.”
Seconds later, the report added, he radioed that the suspect wrested control of the device. Even with the Taser’s prongs deployed, the device can still be used as a stun gun to temporarily incapacitate someone.
Slager “felt threatened and reached for his department-issued firearm and fired his weapon,” his attorney added.
Quote:
In this case, the video revealed a very different scenario. Scott, who was unarmed and fleeing, was shot in the back by Slager from a distance of at least 15 feet. After Scott was fatally shot, the video appears to capture Slager planting an object next to Scott.
guess he did plant the taser to try to justify the shooting. which is an absolute buffoon move, because it doesn't justify ****.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

does anyone here really think brown went into demon mode and charged a guy who has ****ing shooting at him? nobody would turn and charge into a hail of bullets. if only brown had kept his back to him. then wilson would be in prison too.

if only there was video, instead of 'only' a dozen eyeball witnesses.

charge a guy who's shooting at you? **** is beyond absurd. nobody would do that, unless suicidal, or on PCP or some ****.

this is what happened to brown (except brown and at least quit running and turned around prior to being finished-off). wilson was beyond tilted and straight up murdered him. just like this jag-off.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

This was just so sick that he was gunned down.

I hope the officer either rots in prison for the rest of his life or is given the death penalty.

Nobody should be gunned down like this.

The autopsy's would have shown the victim was shot 8 times in the back. It's really hard to justify in a court of law why this would have taken place.

It's fair enough to question those shot in the front. It's a good thing the medical /autopsy profession is getting much better.

Also the use of cell phone/video recordings of the incidents are more frequent which is a good thing.

rara, why do you think fascist lawmakers would want to make filming police illegal, especially after we've seen how informative/effective it is?

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

I'm in the UK and from afar I usually take the ******* stance on these incidents

"Don't resist arrest or do anything that could be construed as aggressive and you wont get killed. Instead of organizing marches and protests after the event perhaps you should be educating your sons/brothers/husbands not to be scumbag criminals"

This one is completely different and it would be absolutely shameful for your nation if the cop gets off.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

http://www.abcnews4.com/story/287255...police-officer
Original story
The incident began about 9:30 a.m. Saturday when Officer Michael Slager, 33, pulled 50-year-old Walter Scott over for a broken tail light at the corner of Remount and Craig roads.
Quote:
Police and witnesses say Scott tried to run from Slager before turning to fight for the officer's Taser. It was during that scuffle that the officer fired his service weapon, fatally wounding Scott.

According to an incident report, officers heard Slager say over the radio that he had deployed his Taser and "seconds later" he said "Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser."
lol "witnesses" like that one witness in the Brown case who wasn't even ****ing there?

Anyway, bond denied.


Also 8 shots? Even if the cop was afraid, even if the guy did take his stun gun... even if all of that... he shot at the guy 8 ****ing times (and hit him 5 times).

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

Being in fear of your life because anti-Usain Bolt is lumbering away from you at a breathtaking 2.3 mph is really hilarious. Special props to telling the guy you just shot 5 times to put his hands behind his back.

Aren't 3 stray bullets way more dangerous than anything a suspect that has a warrant for outstanding child support payments can do?

How can firing a single shot be justified here?

Semi-related point:

All those LA officers involved in the shooting of a homeless man on Skid Row had body cameras on.

Interesting how that footage has never been released.

Re: Here we go again... (unarmed black teen shot by cop)

lol, open up Fox News article about this and literally the first comment is some old white woman asking "Where's the video of all the white people who have been murdered by blacks?"

racism is dead, black people should stop whining so much and liberals need to stop playing the race card all the time

And instant dismissal for deactivating / tampering with the recording equipment. Perhaps only a 6 month leave without pay for the first instance of not ensuring it is in proper working condition at the beginning of each shift.
