He clearly had his hands in the air with no gun in his hands when shot.
And this is the main problem I have with this particular shooting. This is very similar to the Tamir Rice shooting in Cleveland years ago.
Just roll up and fire. The difference here is the kid is complying. And the cop still shot him. So we are actually down to shooting first and
sorting it out later?
Due process. If the cop broke the law, he should be held accountable. Why did Toledo run in the first place?
Doesn't matter why he ran. Lots of people run from the cops. All races, colors, and creed.
The kid dropped the gun, and the cop shot him..in a nanosecond. Fear, anger, and adrenaline
all come together to override common sense. Sorry, not excusable. Same kind of argument
for mistaking a handgun for a taser.
Yep. Fucking tragedy and the cop should get his day in court.
Odd that the cop who killed Ashli Babbitt wont see court.
Sigh...was this kid participating in an open attempt to subvert the government of the...oh for the love of all that's holy, you know where I'm going with this....jeez.
Oh, yeah, and the media isn't responsible for all of the ills. As I understand it, the gun was already on the ground when the cop shot him. Why would it matter
if it was cropped out of the frame? The media already reported he had a gun.
A cop killing a person should always be subject to due process.
Why wouldnt that be the case?
Everyone should. Cops blasting away is the very opposite of Due Process.
