    That's how its supposed to work.
    Unfortunately that’s just what the officials are doing to the police. Just give them a taste of what they want. No police for a few days. I guess that would be a union or a individual decision. It’s an election year and the left has made up another disaster they will exploit.

    Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop.

    Personally, I think that the officers that were there had better options than shooting. They lost control of the situation and should have requested additional help.

    Instead, after getting in over their head, they continued escalation and ended up shooting a guy at what looked to be 15 feet away while running away.

    Was the guy guilty? Likely? Did he help create the condition that got himself killed? Yes. Did he deserve to get killed for the crimes concerned? No.

    Was the shoot legal? I'd imagine that it is, but I don't know Georgia laws. It was a poor decision that probably deserved disciplinary action.


    As far as the Atlanta Blue Flu, I kinda think someone is just fanning those flames. While I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few cases, I have yet to read a real news source saying that it's a big deal. We'll see.
    This is a stupid argument. People who are killed by the police are not killed for the crimes concerned. They are killed because they escalate the situation to the point where the officer feels his life is in danger. In this case, he was killed because he pointed what the DA views as a dangerous weapon at the officers.

    The police in this case could have made better decisions that would result in a better outcome.

    This is the causation of the lunacy, but is not the objective of the responses to it. I doubt there are persons with nominal intelligence that sincerely believe this was some type of murder! Morons that do believe this, or even those morons that sincerely don't but want these cops strung up anyway want no consequences for any crimes committed by blacks.

    Yes in hindsight and from the safety of sitting on your couch they could have made better choices. In the heat of the moment with a weapon capable of incapacitating you then maybe they did make the right decision.

    There needs to be some onus on the person breaking the law to make better decisions also. If the suspect hadn't escalated to fighting and then stealing the officer's taser none of this would be on the news either. And as to his primary choice to drink and drive he shouldn't have driven he should have either stayed where he was or gotten an Uber/Lyft many wrong choices were made that night.

    Now I do think the officer went over the line when he kicked the guy after he shot him which should be prosecuted but as far as I know the GBI hasn't finished their investigation either so the DA is just pandering right now.

    When looking back at any situation, most people can find a better way to do something. That's why the reasonableness standard doesn't include hindsight. It looks at the information available at the time the decision was made.

    They should have let him walk to his sister's house, so that he could live, and they can still charge the cop with some other crime after this guy does the same thing and kills someone a month from now. I'd be willing to bet the same MADD mothers that would sue this officer had he let the guy go , and the guy killed someone a month from now. Are some of the very people not so peacefully protesting his death right now. Cake and eat it to, that's what I want because I am an entitled society.

    You mean why the GBI is performing a full investigation, but the DA decided to shoot from the hip?
