Well, he was using it, so clearly he was in possession of it.


He could have left it at home. We do not know.

But let's say he did possess it. So what?

That is a misdemeanor. It's one step above getting a traffic ticket. Last time I checked death was not the punishment for misdemeanors.

So it's a moot point.

My point is that it's wrong to portray this guy as some innocent saint.

No one is a saint but he is indeed innocent.

Do we have to be innocent saints to deserve not to be shot dead?

And? You weren't there and neither was I. So address that instead of sounding like the cop walked up to the vehicle intent on killing this guy. So why didn't he kill everyone else so there would be only his account?

You forgot to highlight this part.



That is not my argument.  That is yours.  I said he was not fit to be a cop and had no reason to shoot the guy.  I never said it was premeditated.  You are starting a stupid debate with me that has nothing to do with anything I said.

Really?  Then I guess you made multiple replies to a "stupid debate".
And I agreed that perhaps he wasn't. I pointed out that neither you nor I were there. Were you? So then you agree it was just bad judgement and sadly someone paid for it with his life.

What I AM SAYING IS this COP WAS NOT FIT TOBE A POLICEMAN.  That is why he was fired. If I had shat a man point blank, do you think I would be acquitted?  Thee is no good reason for this cop to have shot this man.



So why do you think the cop shot him?

He said he had a gun, then the officer asked for ID.  He reached for his wallet and then got shot 7 times.  Do you think shooting a man sitting in a car 7 times is justified after you asked for his ID?

No its not.

as I stated prior.  Glad you finally get it.

Because he was a poor ass, stupid cop.

Because the cop was an incompetent piece of shit that should never have been a cop to begin with.


He killed an innocent man and endangered a woman and a small child.

I can't believe that there are still people to defend this guy.

This cop got away with murder.. 

Not true.  While he did commit homicide as per the definition, it was ruled justifiable by a jury of his peers based on the evidence, or lack thereof, presented by the prosecuting attorney.

He wasn't even facing murder charges.  The chargers were manslaughter and illegal discharge of a firearm.

You folks need to get your facts straight.

What kind of pansy are you?

White cops are supposed to hunt down and, if possible, kill people of color.

This is still America!

So now police of color are hunting down people of color too?  what color?  Isn't white a color?  How about brown?  Red?

You guys are so racist it's sad.

Maybe he did not deserve to be shot dead, although I'm okay with it because I believe the cop was justified. But as I said, I'm tired of the notion that this guy was such a great guy. He wasn't.

His comment is sarcastic, stupid.
