I don't know, I just don't know....? Why would you be in a car dealership destroying cars, drive your car through the dealership's window, and expect not to get shot?
A mental break down. I have no idea if that happened here, I am just answering your question.

The news keep referring to him as a football player....?

I can only look back and think about the fact if this were me? Would I even consider doing something so dumb, let alone at night, thinking that there wouldn't be consequences...what could this boy be thinking?
Maybe he wasn't. I do not see things that are not there. Schizophrenics do though.

I'm sorry, but I don't believe the officer was in the wrong here....

What do you think?

There is something wrong in our society today, that these kids think it's ok to do these things...let alone, with our police force....they give our police force guns, training, and retrain them every year, but when something like this happens, the force doesn't back their own men?
They should back them no matter what?

Quote:
Something is very wrong....and needs to be changed?

I am asking you to please not respond in anger, this is simply open for discussion....do you honestly think, this boy was wrong?
Wrong? Was I wrong when I did not come to a complete stop at the stop sign? Yes I was. Should I get shot? Whether his actions were wrong isn't what is in question here.

Quote:
He drove a car through the show room window????????

He was jumping up and down on top of a cars, damaging them on purpose....????

Why would he do that? At night? To see what he could get away with? For kicks?
Where does this concept come from? That its ok to do that?
Maybe he was simply being malicious. Maybe he was mad at the world and decided to take it out on a car lot. The police are not judge, jury and executioner. No, they can not shoot someone for simply being malicious.

The riots will come if the rookie cop is acquitted.

She's not being racist just telling it as it is.

Texas and many states will not tolerate stepping back and letting violent riots tear down our cities.
We see non violent protests on a regular basis which we all support.
Riot or loot around here can get you shot by the business owner and supported by the community.

We don't tolerate criminals / looters / violence. Maybe your fair state does but knowing your Governor, I doubt it.
He's the best thing to happen to NJ in years.

Arlington PD is handling this situation very fairly. We Texans mostly respect the process.

That is exactly where the activists want this to go.

Further, the Arlington police chief reached out to Taylor's family and the family has said that the PD's actions are a "step in the right direction".

If other LE agencies (I'm looking at you, Ferguson) acted in an equally professional manner, rather than stonewalling, then there would be no riots.
BS. The Arlington PD took action to appease the activists and to appear politically correct way before any appropriate investigations could take place. Legal action against them has already been started, appropriately.

ok,but why say it in AAVE?

BTW,the whites respect minorities in North Jersey,so we will not loot.

Chrispy is a joke btw,not a great governor at all.

Arlington Police Officer Who Killed Christian Taylor Is Fired - NBC News

From what is observed in the video, this kid must have been high on something... But IMO that was not justification to kill him.
