    I'm not saying this is the most nonsensical statement ever made on the forums, but I am saying I've met rock rock collections more intelligent than this argument.

    Yes he is the sole witness inside the house and the evidence supports it.

    What evidence supports it? If the cop's body cam supports it, then fine. That's a good argument. "But an 8 year old said so" is about as shitty as an argument can get.

    Clearly, THEY (black men) didn't collectively join gangs and commit shootings, since 16,000 is such an infitessimal fraction of 21 million. That's roughly how many criminal homicides there were last year (https://www.statista.com/statistics...gent-manslaughter-cases-in-the-us-since-1990/) and how many black men are in the USA. Also, we should be looking at 8000 since the other half of the murders, did not involve black men. Clearly, the overwhelming majority of black men were not involved, and a broad brush is bogus. By the way, violent crime in Chicago and Baltimore were down last year. Violent crime in this country has trended downward over the last decades, while graduation rates have slanted upward dramatically over the last decades.

    Not me's article mentioned broken windows policing. You should read about broken windows policing, which is the opposite of looking for big crimes like murder, rape, and assault.

    There was no reason for him to be sneaking around when the call was a welfare check. Again he did not follow protocol with announcing his presence, of course he will have a gun pointed at him duh.. You would point a gun if you heard someone making noises outside the house. He evidently was setting up the person in the house to shoot them..You want to support as cop that commits murder go ahead but you are on a losing side of the argument.The pig deserves what he gets.

    Says who? You?
    Again who was in charge and what is OFFICIAL protocol?

    As usual in these case I wait for the evidence, how many times have you been burned not doing so.

    so did the cop have a gun in his hands, nothing wrong with her having a gun in her hands in her own home, when she heard someone creeping around her back yard

    she was waiting to confirm if the person in her back yard had bad intentions, the cop was shoot first ask questions later.....

    Didn't say it was "wrong" that she had a gun in her hand. The fact remains she pointed it at the officer, that will be a mitigating factor at trial.

    But half did, and those half all occurred in very small areas of very big cities.

    That's why police patrol there.

    Why do you want crazy cops interacting with you, your family, friends, and neighbors?

    What? What are you talking about? He was a uniformed officer and he gave a warning, your theory is insane! You just have an anti-police prejudice. Are you a criminal perchance?

    How much evidence do you require? There are tons of it readily accessible on the internet. Are you saying that those reports are false? What country, State, or major city would you like to examine?

    The killer cop's boss gave him time to scrub his social media posts and to get rid of incriminating evidence. The same thing will happen within the next week so there will be a lot of time to scramble the evidence trail. The most that will happen to the killer cop will be a slap on the wrist but the tax payers will have to pay out tens of $millions.

    That has nothing to do with what happened at the scene and who was in charge.

    Let me explain how debate works, you make an assertion you provide evidence to back it up. You don't make an assertion and then expect those who dispute it to find evidence to prove their own arguments wrong. So ante up!

    Like what exactly? I hope this guy does get just a slap on the wrist, he's still young enough to start over.

    Yep, he can be a member of the Slave Patrol forever and ever. Isn't it just wonderful when crazy homicidal maniacs who are cops can murder black people at will and get away with it?
