    The man had his back turned and was running. That was seen clearly. There is no excuse to be made for this. We have got to stop looking for excuses to allow police to do this.

    The problem is the police seeking conflict. That's what's going on. And it's time we stopped ignoring that. I think some of us need learn that we have rights and we do not have to just obey everything the police tell us. If we act within our rights and get killed, that's murder. Th police use that threat of shooting us in order to bully us into giving up our constitutional rights.

    Know Your Rights: What To Do If You're Stopped By Police, Immigration Agents or the FBI

    • You have the right to remain silent. If you wish to exercise that right, say so out loud.
    • You have the right to refuse to consent to a search of yourself, your car or your home.
    • If you are not under arrest, you have the right to calmly leave.
    • You have the right to a lawyer if you are arrested. Ask for one immediately.
    • Regardless of your immigration or citizenship status, you have constitutional rights.

    What To Do If You're Stopped By Police, Immigration Agents or the FBI

    We do NOT live in a police state nor should we allow it to happen because of blind and ignorant worship of law enforcement.

    You don't have the right to run from the police.

    Sure you do, you just should expect to be charged with evading

    Tennesee Criminal Code 39-16-603 - Evading arrest
    Misdemeanor Evading Arrest is a Class A Misdemeanor and may result in some or all of the following consequences:
    1. A sentence of up to 11 months, 29 days in prison;
    2. A probationary period;
    3. A fine of up to $2,500;
    4. Court costs.
    [Source: Tennessee Code Annotated ยง 39-16-603]
    The take away from this though is that no where does it state that the punishment for misdemeanor evading is summary execution by the police. The penalty for disobedience to the police or fleeing them is NOT death

    When 12% of the population commit 50% of the murders in this country cops have every reason to fear them.
    Maybe if blacks would stop committing so many crimes they'd get the benefit of the doubt.

    No,the problem is you fools drive around with rap music blaring,no inspection sticker,broken tail light,smoking weed and carrying illegal firearms.
    Or you're standing on a street corner openly selling weed and drugs.
    You fools are your own worst enemy.

    White cops should refuse to patrol certain areas.
