Default Cop Execution Caught on Tape

Have you guys heard about this?!? I just saw it on the news.

http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/200...6/18559091.php

Suddenly the rumors about LA police sound a lot more believable. I don't care how critical you are of criminals. This is reminiscent of Nazism!

I haven't seen the news yet, but that cop almost looked surprised that he shot the guy. I guess he died as a result of his wounds later because he was still moving afterwards.

So what exactly is being said?

Anyway, the guy was unarmed and apparently the city has been rioting.

All I know is I would hate to be a cop in that situation. At any time you could be shot at....have no idea who is around the corner, etc. Plus, every move you make is scrutinized. I am in no way defending this guy as I can't tell what happened based on that video. And I don't think anyone else can, either. But, that would be a stressful job.

Plus...I have to ask, where were the riots when the State Trooper in Carnegie was killed with his own weapon on a normal traffic stop? I guess that anger only goes one way.

Judging by the look on his face alone, I believe him. However, he signed on for that responsibilty and took a life and probably deserves to be punished. It goes with the territory.

it has been on the news here for quite some time (I live in the bay area). The family is suing Oakland for millions upon millions of dollars.

Rioting is happening in Oakland, a lot of black on black company crime and property damage is happening, which is a real shame.

Nothing official has been said about the shooting as there is an investigation happening.


IMO, TheWarDen is correct. . .

I'll lay you 20-1 that the cop was reaching for a tazer. The kid on the ground looked like he was struggling a bit, and the cop was going to tazer him into submission. He pulled a gun instead and fired.

What an absolute shame and waste of a life.

He should be treated the same way. Cuffed and kicked around then shot face down in the dirt. IMO. But he'll probably get away with it.

he probably will get away with it...unless some new video pops up. video that was taken from a different angle and shows a different side to the story.

i'm disgusted in the fact that we grant cops the rights to protect and serve us and be guardians for the city and things like this happens. whatever this person did who got shot, he was cuffed and stuffed and ready to be taken to the station to be dealt with. i bet when he woke up this morning was wasn't planning on getting shot by a policeman. -- i believe it was an accident...but like previously stated...what a shame that had to happen.

like i always say, "forgive the sinner...not the sin."
