He showed him his belly.

Then the man shot him three times with a rifle. From twenty feet away.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80130872


1. Caller reports man with gun holding it on a lady. Could be wrong but that’s info cops have to go on.

2. When confronted and given clear and concise demands, suspect refuses to comply.

3. Suspect continues to act aggravated and refuses to comply with commands while re entering a car with what may be a hostage inside per the information given by the caller.

4. Suspect tries to flee with the victim still in the car.

Given the Information at hand I would shoot as well, the same people screaming about the suspect dying would be screaming if he got away and killed the lady in the car. There’s no winning for anyone on this, if cops ask you to comply and you don’t expect to be shot at.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31573764


Disobeying or ignoring cops is not a crime. There are very limited circumstances that allow them to command a citizen. Sitting in a his own car is not one of them.

Can I point a gun at you and order you to do anything because someone called me and told me you had a gun?

Why do you think they can, for no reasonably established reason?

Re: SHOOTING VIDEO - Austin Tx cop charged with MURDER in shooting of unarmed meth suspect is released on 100k bond
I knew a kid in high school back in the 70's, the cops followed him onto the Akwesasne Mohawk reservation and shot out the tires of his car.

When the state trooper approached his car with gun drawn, the boy backed over the cop with his car, and then ran over him again going forward. He was charged with attempted murder, but the ALL INDIAN jury exonerated him with a 12 to 0 acquittal, 6 more than were needed under Mohawk law. The incident caused a lot of animosity among the police and eventually they were banned by law from coming onto the Mohawk reservation..

You see, the mistake the cop made was shooting at him out of his own legal jurisdiction. If he had shot and killed the Indian boy of the reservation, he'd have gotten clean way with it.

The point to this story is right and wrong are not determined by skin color. That Mexican man was not a criminal, he had not a single prison tat on him and no gun.

I'd bet my last fiat dollar the 911 caller was swatting the mexican man.

Very simple follow the officers commands and don't get shot!

I'm not always on the cops side in these incidents, but these peace officers were there to keep the peace after receiving complaints about a man smoking crack with a gun.Clear and concise instructions were given and the suspect acknowledged he understood them by answering them in english . Not an easy job for sure.
 Quoting: Don Draper from Nantucket


Except there was no gun ever found

The guy was simply having a mental breakdown

Tried to drive away from his parking lot

Did not endanger anyone

Cop shot him through his car with a rifle killing him

Cops are not God or judge and jury

Murdering people is not helping the police do their job any better

So all you jack boot thugs should wake up

Notice their action is all based on some false report
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73808856


Wrong!

Driving a deadly weapon (car) at police while engaging in suspected felonious activity with a possible hostage at gunpoint + limo tint windows + failure to comply during a felony stop = justified lethal force.

All he had to do was comply and cooperate and if no weapon/drugs found would have been chillin with a 40 on the porch in a few minutes.

Charge cops with murder for protecting the public and there is no reason why they should protect you if a Blexican meth head has you at gunpoint.

Imagine if you can this scenario.

You are out sitting in your own car with your woman listening to the radio in your own apartment parking lot where you live. Several armed men FROM A GANG KNOWN TO SHOOT PEOPLE FOR NOTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT with rifles, pistols and shotguns drawn descend upon you giving you conflicting orders to raise your hands as well as not to move. Strobing lights specifically designed to cause a fight or flight response and unnecessary excitement are being employed.

You do the best you can to understand what they want you to do but they continue to point rifles and pistols at you hollering incoherently, obviously itching to pull the trigger and in a state of cowardly excitement.. With your hands up as far as you can get them, one of the cops shoots you anyway.


What would you do?

Do you know?

The cop that shot him with the "less than lethal" did.
He did what any sane man would do, he tried to get away.

And thats why it's murder.

No, he's not right. Rad what I said. It's obvious these are all beliefs based on racial supremacist ideas. You cant just say you thought someone was doing something wrong and shoot them. Shooting in self defense or using lethal force in self defense has a very limited scope of legality.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80134793


Where was the probable cause a crime had been committed, much less a felony?
Do you understand that before a police officer can order a citizen to do anything there must be something indicating some crime has been committed is being committed or is about to be committed other than an anonymous caller making muffled claims. For all we really know it was the cops making the 911 call themselves.

I'd say opening fire on him while he had his hands up fully justified his attempt to escape their proximity if I were on the jury, including running them smooth over if he had to. It would be a clear cut case of self defense.

To make this shit stop we are going to have to have more people that can put themselves in the shoes of the dead man before they are the dead man..

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74053863

"Suspected felonious activity" and "possible hostage" have open ended meanings and practically any situation could apply.
You're driving down the road with your kids in the back seat, you COULD possibly be a pedophile that kidnapped them.

. Police have to have what is called a reasonably articulate suspicion to believe a crime has been committed or is being committed before they can even order you to do anything, much less shoot you. An anonymous 911 call does not qualify.

People can say whatever they want to, in the absence of evidence it is just words.

You are walking across a parking lot, carrying a pistol.

A car pulls out of a space and proceeds in your direction, because you are in the only path of egress he has.

Is he threatening your life with a deadly weapon and do you have a right to shoot him?


This was no different , with the possible exception the polcie had shot him and were continuing to act aggressively. There was never any moment in the entire video where the polcie had a legal right to order that guy to do a damned thing, much less shoot him/ Just being a brown man isnt enough.




The point here is you have to be careful what you say justifies police killing people, because this situation was purposely manipulated to use that excuse. And if you let them get away with that "he had a gun" or "I saw a gun" excuse, and person legally carrying could be shot by police

Where was the probable cause a crime had been committed, much less a felony?
Do you understand that before a police officer can order a citizen to do anything there must be something indicating some crime has been committed is being committed or is about to be committed other than an anonymous caller making muffled claims. For all we really know it was the cops making the 911 call themselves.

I'd say opening fire on him while he had his hands up fully justified his attempt to escape their proximity if I were on the jury, including running them smooth over if he had to. It would be a clear cut case of self defense.

To make this shit stop we are going to have to have more people that can put themselves in the shoes of the dead man before they are the dead man..

Re: SHOOTING VIDEO - Austin Tx cop charged with MURDER in shooting of unarmed meth suspect is released on 100k bond
He showed him his belly.

Then the man shot him three times with a rifle. From twenty feet away.

1. Caller reports man with gun holding it on a lady. Could be wrong but that’s info cops have to go on.

2. When confronted and given clear and concise demands, suspect refuses to comply.

3. Suspect continues to act aggravated and refuses to comply with commands while re entering a car with what may be a hostage inside per the information given by the caller.

4. Suspect tries to flee with the victim still in the car.

Given the Information at hand I would shoot as well, the same people screaming about the suspect dying would be screaming if he got away and killed the lady in the car. There’s no winning for anyone on this, if cops ask you to comply and you don’t expect to be shot at.

This.


Seems pretty clear to me. If the dude had left and shot the lady in the car people would have been in an uproar
