How do you channel your anger? Supporting gun reforms?
that would've been the worst thing he could've done... not that that matters.

Precisely. Like the taser chick, if cops can’t handle this pressure and rules of engagement we should not be protecting them.
There’s a clear second of the kid holding his hands in the air and the cop executing him.
The whole motion of having the gun behind his back to it disappearing and him turning toward the cop with empty hands is about 0.75s — looking at the timestamps. It was not a clear second. It’s at best a quarter of a second where the kid’s hands are visibly empty, that’s pushing up against human reaction time.The kid ran from the cops, had a gun, and tried to dump it with a sus move that got him shot. Calling it executing is just idiot talk.
His hands were empty when he was shot. The cop shouldn’t be on the street- at the least.
The cop didn’t know the kid ditched the gun. As far as the cop knew the kid was whipping around the gun. We as onlookers only know the kid’s hands were empty because we have the advantage of being able to watch the footage over and over.The cop will be off the street for a little while as is customary, then once it all blows over he’ll be back.
You’re right on the latter. But the cop should be prosecuted for negligent homicide.
He’s running from cops, already guilty of evading arrest. The shooting was still unjustified.
but unexplained as well. why wasn't footage shown of the cop cam before the action started? why do we allow an edited version of the tape sway the public. we have no clue what happened. the divide is widening and that's what they want
no one is saying he's innocent. just didn't deserve death.
no, he deserved his day in court. i wonder what happened before this though. did he kill someone? all they said was 2 people were shooting guns
Yeah nothing good obvi. But cops are getting more reckless and more dangerous these days.
Wow sal, we agree. Weird huh?
I expected you to say the RACIST WHITE SUPREMACIST BIGOT XENOPHOBE COPS PLANTED A Gun. leftist do have a tendency to lie and avoid the truth 🤷♂️
And here I was extending an olive branch.
Seeing the gun in his hand and then seeing the kid whip his hands at you all in less than a second is not manslaughter. Manslaughter requires negligence. That was not the case here, it was a justified reaction.
@AllThatSweetJazz I’m with sal, despite our differences. It’s negligence. If a cop can’t make good snap decisions in high pressure, he shouldn’t be a cop.
He made the right snap decision. The cop wasn't negligent and that's how this came about. Ironically, if he was negligent and failed to respond appropriately, then the kid would have lived. And that circumstance was set up by the decisions of the kid.
@AllThatSweetJazz I guess that’s prosecutors and judges decision.
True, but I doubt it even gets that far. The cop has been on administrative leave for 3 weeks already and there's no charges iirc. I don't think they'll be any charges and he'll just come back to work when the leave is up in a week.
@AllThatSweetJazz we finally agree.
@OddBeMewell this is one of those rare bad cops.still not going to assume all cops are this way like you leftist do. most other shooting are justified in my opinion.
and sure as hell do not support abolishing the police and letting felons and gang bangers run rampant. it makes no sense
Latter is true. Not sure about the former anymore. Police culture of blue wall shit.
The video I posted? I didn’t ever see one...
Have the video on 0.25 speed, then go to 0:10 and then click start and pause to go frame by frame pretty much. When the officer turns to the right you can see a gun in his right hand for a split second. Just barely on the right side of the screen. Dunno if that is a real gun or not, but in the heat of the moment it can be tough for a cop to differentiate. Especially knowing there have been armed robberies done by 13-14 years olds (see the New York Uber Driver case of Anwar Mohammed)
Here is the link to get a bigger picture. Just remove the spaces between the dots.i. ibb. co/yXk8ZFS/Gun. jpg
So at best he ditched the gun and out his hands up...
So he shouldn’t have been shot then?
Supposedly he was taking the gun out of his pocket to either drop it on the ground or kill the cop with it. The cop didn't want to take the chance.
There’s a solid second of the kid holding empty hands in the air. Like the taser chick, our police need to be able to make good snap decisions when dealing with human lives.
Don’t see it. Maybe when they’re running and he ditched it. But his hands were empty and up when he was shot.
That's not the original video you posted. If you look at the video released by the police. They do a full breakdown from the two guys shooting at the car and then the police chase including the 0.888 sec between gun in hand and shot fired by the cops. You have to take in consideration that real eyesite is different than viewing through a body cam.

Why is every black kid el chapo and white kids who rape chicks or something is let off with a hair tossed?
1st that not a black kid2nd. Black kids need to punished as well as their parents
White people commit less crime than latinos and blacks.And POC Asians are way more behaved and smarter you should learn from them. And be a GOOD POC
Wow how wrong are you?www.ojjdp.gov/ojstatbb/crime/ucr.asp?table_in=2
The cop saw the gun but because the kid tossed it behind a fence where the officer couldn't see it and turned and went to pit his hands up the officer still thought it was in his hand and was presenting the gun to shoot.https://youtu.be/ylY31U7-l9s
Why of course?
Still frames 1sec before he was shot show his hand clearly on the gun.
That’s the image I embedded. No gun.
No, go back a few frames
