This shooting was again another example of police not exhibiting any other training other than taking out that gun and mowing someone down. Dude wasn't even advancing or anything. You dudes need to get your shit together. Because they're going to continue to mentally push the boundaries on what we deem normal behavior from these cops.

It's not ok for an officer's life to be in danger because somebody wants to resist in what is now a hostile moment. Period.

Cops shouldn't have to wait to get shot or their throat slashed before they retaliate when someone is already initiating violence.

Resisting a cop is the same thing as initiating violence.

The reality of the situation is that cops have a certain level of authority over you, and while of course there are going to be instances of cops stepping outside of their authority, this is usually NOT the case... it's almost always someone resisting situations in an unlawful manner, and then acting like a petulant child and pretending that if they just cause a big enough of a scene, the cop is going to walk away and everything is going to be ok. No... people just need to accept that once a cop has engaged you, you need to comply as much as you are legally required to do... and 99 times out of 100 the people engaged with the cops don't know the law and they just start screaming and doing dumb shit... and they get shot because they violently resisted and that is somehow the cop's fault? **** outta here bro.

For ****ing ****s sake, grow the **** up.

Shooting at legs, trying to talk it out with a guy wielding a knife, or a freakin katana, that's within striking distance.

Nobody's that stupid. If you want to risk your own life being an idiot fine, but you shouldn't expect others to. You do know that if even if you shoot someone right in the heart, it's still possible for them to cover a considerable distance and stab you right? This ain't the movies where you shoot someone and they always fall down dead, or everyone has rifle-like accuracy with a pistol.

You don't see them pushing the boundaries on what is public perception of acceptable behavior for a police officer?

If you just watched this video and can safety say that this officer was justified in emptying 7 shots into this kid then I don't know what to tell ya

Im pretty sure some people here literally have a slight mental problem. They think its ok to empty your clip on a teen and end his life because he made a really bad decision. It would have been justified if it happened during the struggle while they were wrestling but the cop had time to back away and create plenty of room between them 2 and still came to the conclusion that murdering him was the best solution?

Is this really the only training cops have in this country?

Another cowardly cop shooting someone when it could've been avoided.

The wild shit is, the kid isn't even advancing on the officer when he begins to just fire on him.

Aren't you tired of hating on the boogeyman cops?


Surely you have more in your own life to worry about.

How many times have I said that it was only a matter of time before this ends up at the front door of whites.

Notice how this story hasn't gone national? If the "victim" was black you can bet your sorry ass it would be on every news outlet... sorry sacks of shit.

Wake the **** up, people. If you don't think the media salivates at ratcheting up tensions and exaggerating the frequency of these things, haha..

Also, poido... you're right about the lack of self focus and getting riled up over this shit that has no day to day impact on yourself... but that's what these guys do, lol.
