This is the classics discussion. The officer saw an action he considered possibly an attempt to draw and shoot the officers to the east of the house. The shooter was well across the street to the north.

Perhaps the worst thing about this was that the 911 operator was still talking to the purported perpetrator who obviously was not the guy on the porch. However the Police on the scene were not aware of this.. So they killed the guy when the knowledge he was not the person calling was known by the department.

Black folk are two and a half times more likely to get shot by a Cop. That would say they have more interest in Police shootings than Whites.
You had to bring it up. See comments #31 and #33.

What you say is false. Whites are more likely to get shot than blacks. See Roland Fryer's analysis.

The caller should get at least 20 years. But the cop should at least be fired, too. He overreacted and killed someone.

The cops didn't go in the house, the victim was shot in his doorway.
Have you read any of the post other than the title?
Because he was called out to a very tense situation... the cops thought they were dealing with a deranged guy who poured gasoline on his home was going to set it on fire and had his mother and sister locked in a closet with a gun pointing at them.. that is why!

Start watching the Youtube at 4:17 for the interview:

Man those jurors (as well as the judge) are going to be PISSED when they hear that audio. This guy doesn't realize he WILL be spending years in prison. The only question is how many.

It's not absurd. It's observable by anyone who pays attention. And by people who actually do research, like Roland Fryer.

And the article you quote is sophomoric, probaby actually written by a sophomore SJW. He doesn't even address Fryer's contentions, let alone refute them. Surely, you knew that.

While standing at the door with empty hands, they could tell he had no gun on anyone. The cops were so far away, if he would have had a gun in his waist, he could not have hit the cops. They were just trigger happy,

Its not that he felt threatened by that distance, but the D.A. that covers this department tells the cop to use the "I feared for my life" excuse so the shooting cant be held against him in court. His lawyer will use the Graham vs Connor case as his defense (which makes that excuse a gross twisting of the law) and the local prosecutor will do everything he can to avoid convicting him. Its the same thing that happens in each one of these cases.

The lefties support the deranged caller instead of the police officer trained to protect people from the deranged. Obama trained the left to hate police. We get it.

The cop did nothing wrong. The caller set it up to end the way it did.
