What about that crazy lady in D.C. that got pumped full of lead for the crime of driving without stopping? Where were the riots and demonstrations and the appeals to the U.N. over that?
It’s a mixed up crazy world.
Well, the point was that if you try to harm a police dog, they will probably shoot you. If you try to shoot them (or they have reason to think you did), they will likely shoot you. If you run after they shoot once, they will likely empty the clip.
The details will make the difference. Did Big Mike try to ‘surrender’ or was he just collapsing as the officer fired multiple rounds ? Unless there is video, no one will know for sure.
When Mike punched the cop, it was assault on a police officer. When the gun fired, in the cop’s mind it was attempted murder of a policeman. That usually provokes a very quick and deadly response.
Eventually the cell phone videos will come out, then we will know.
I actually think that Mike may have tried to take the gun, not intending to use it, but to keep the cop from arresting and/or shooting him. The cop allegedly yelled "I'm gonna kill you". Whether that was just after the door slamming, or after the punch, is not certain.
Try as I might, I just can’t work up any upset over gassing an Al Jazeera crew or arresting the two journalists.
And I heard he tried to take the cop’s gun.
That is not Michael Brown. That is a punk named Jodah Cain, who killed his grandmother in 2013:
You should have the mods pull your post.
Thanks for clearing that up.
What hard times would those be?
I think that’s pretty close. And I think the Cop is in trouble too....
If Eric Holder had a son...
Yes, I recall that lew..
It’s also a world full of people with agendas and bad intent.
Not sure where you're getting that.
If ya try to take a cops weapon, real bad things will follow as the cop will have no idea what your intent is and won't even care at that point.
“whereas I suspect you are one of the Cop haters that infect certain Cop hater threads that are appearing here all too often.”
I used to respect cops... I was a military cop in a past life, but since they started shooting dogs and grandmothers, I’ve wised up.
