You just gave LEO's everywhere "probable cause" to shoot 1st and ask questions later when dealing with fools like that perp in Alabama.

Speak for yourself, please. IF you were a cop and were in that kind of situation, IMHO you'd draw with the intent to kill.

And this is exactly why these cops are getting into trouble with the public and why people don't trust them. Their instinct is to kill with a gun instead of trying to diffuse the situation by other means.

Then he shouldn't be a cop. Training also tells you when not to shoot, but then he wouldn't get any attention of he claimed that.

He should have shot him in the knee.

According to a cop friend of mine, they are told to use the least amount of force necessary to resolve the situation. If the least amount of force is pulling a gun and shooting them in the face, do it.

You're continued jabs at liberals are ridiculous. We aren't some homogenous blob. I could say, based on your posts, that all conservatives want cops to shoot every suspect that mouths off. Doesn't make it true. So how about you get over your hatred for half, or more, of the country. Or at least stop showing your hatred in every post. You are sounding an awful lot like Fox News.

That's questionable.

Is HRC hiding something?

Is there such a thing as an "assault rifle"?

Did you vote for Obama?

The majority of ills to society can be traced back to the media.
The media currently places the ills of society on the police.


How many different kinds of media are out there?

Maybe he should've tried to make him dance.

Your words speak very clearly for themselves....hilliary is that you? Is that not really what you meant?

They are guilty, period end of story...even when the courts say different



Tell your leftist buddies that, when they (the cops) do their job, and people don't agree with it, even when proven innocent by the court....they just don't care.....

I find it funny (sad really) that anyone would defend the police harassing people who are doing absolutely nothing wrong.
