Seems this been a situation where a taser was appropriate....

What a bunch of cowards. They shot him for "approaching" them. WTF is that. I hate police, all of them. Hearing of dead cops makes me smile :)

He didn't "HALT" when told to. It was a family dispute believed to have a gun involved by this teen. Too bad he didn't listen.

Suicide by cop. He stated to the cops "I have a gun". Then he stepped foward and reached for the object.

High crime area

Young black man - member of a high crime/violence group

Police dispach was told he had a gun

He failed to obey officers

He had an object in his hand

Seems perfectly justified to me..

Agreed.

And the officers' hair WAS threatened with brushing.

But, seriously, the cops really had no choice.

When a cop tells you to STOP, you better do so. You are under arrest at that point.

Of course, blacks never want to obey "white man's laws", in effect, to behave in a civil, non-threatening manner.

The AP reported that the teen had a history of mental illness and his mother had tried to have him hospitalized earlier in the day.

A bystander who said he saw the shooting told CNN affiliate WABC-TV that the man was unarmed. "He dropped the brush," said the bystander, Dyshawn Gibson. "He put his hands up. Police just started firing."
