Police Shoot Another Unarmed Man

This officer was acquitted primarily because his training officer testified that he would do the same under the same circumstances.  If a man is that much of a coward, he has no business claiming to be a protector of civilians.  If he was actually trained to do this, police need much stronger civilian oversight, because no civilian in his right mind would approve of police being taught to do this.

Not here to bash police.  I know many of them join the force with very idealistic motivation.  But peer pressure combined with poor training combined with little management leads to this kind of thing happening.

You're skipping over the root cause again aren't you? Was this in a 'right to work' state where income is kept low?

Man, that was tough to watch.  That poor kid was executed.  How could a jury not see that?  Did they not see the video?

It sure was tough to watch. And it appears that it was an execution. The kid started crying just before the shooting.

What kind of ugly extremist attitude would not see this in what appears to be it's proper light?

Or is this a case of burnsred trying to set something up? I have no idea why somebody that's as extremist as burnsred would post it here?

Afraid somebody else would?

I posted it here because I'm a libertarian.  If you were one also, it would make more sense to you that I did post it.

It's out of character for you and that's why I suspected a dark motive.

It's pushing an illustration of the corruption that is running rampant in your country and that's no your schtick. You're the defender of evil.

I'm cautious of what your motive could be. You're an extremist rightist and that's not libertarian. Posting this was out of character for you. We're going to give you a smackdown on this issue too.

Where did this happen? Please don't make me guess. Thank you.

Edit:It looks to me as if big city regressive rulers encourage just this sort of behavior.
