‘Not all orders are lawful; it is somewhat disturbing that your response here is “he ignored orders.”’
1st off, I had a LIST of things he did wrong, apparently. INCLUDING HITTING A MAN WITH A CAR. (Never mind the stolen items on his person, apparently, although that’s after the fact - I guess.)
2nd, as with all articles, this 1 does not have all the facts. You assume apparently this order to stop is “unlawful”. You can’t assume that because you don’t know what happened to instigate this per the article.
“not all police are honorable either..”
Did I say they are? Stop jumping to conclusions based on limited writings.
The truth is FR is rife with people who hate cops, while I’m yet to see anyone question any armed-forces member. They HAVE done wrong, you know. Hence my comment about enlisted men and FR’s assumptions.

No, I was not commenting on the article — I was commenting on YOUR comment. Do you see that thing that looks like a comma with a period hovering above, it’s called a semi-colon and is used to connect two separate thoughts into a single thought. Your spouting off “he ignored orders” as if that alone justified the shooting is disturbing.

Your above comment, which assumes a legitimacy of authority actually does imply that.
We “hate” cops, because this is a site that centers around respect for the Constitution. Most, but not all (as everyone is so fond of explicitly stating these days), serve to abuse the rights we have under it, and employ a default corrupt/abusive stance of the citizens they are supposed to “protect and serve.”
If a lot of people all observe the same behavior, it likely has *some* legs to it.
But of course there are plenty of military that do bad things and break legitimate law, I don’t think many people on here would argue against that pointespecially since there are plenty of documented facts contrary to that stance.
