Miami police will review video showing a detective punching a man in the face during a shooting investigation on Monday.

Police said a man was shot several times outside an apartment building in the area of Northwest 3rd Avenue and 22nd Street. Miami Fire Rescue attempted to revive the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Video showed at least two people try approaching the body underneath a yellow tarp. When police grabbed one man, another approached and got into a struggle with the officers.

"They should have had more control of what they were doing. The crowds and everything," said Patricia Lammons.

Man is shot and murdered. Cops secure scene, begin investigation.

Grieving family member contaminates crime scene, begins fighting with investigators.

Cops fight him out of crime scene, one lands a punch the media and the urban residents think is "excessive"....

NOW what is the liberal media to do?? The police union released a statement talking about how they can't be interfered with when a crime scene is secure.....

You couldn’t pay me enough to be a cop. No matter what happens, you’ll always be the enemy.

The only solution is to create a society that needs less cops.

The guy is lucky they didn’t tase him, turn the dog loose, or shoot him.

“blame the tool used in the crime”

OK, easy ‘cheap shot’.

Ummmn - just what was the cop’s name, anyway?

Looks like the first subject into the crime scene was attempting to retrieve something at the dead guy's feet under the tarp. At one point in Baltimore and Washington, D.C., crime was so bad that perps were being robbed of their gold neck chains and drugs...while handcuffed at the crime scene, in police custody, and awaiting transport to the station house! In one instance, the shooters returned to a crime scene and fired on police minutes after police arrived, in an attempt to drive them off and retrieve the goods.

There it is. My solution - three misdemeanors convictions or two felonies and it's off to Devil's Island you go ... for life.

You really want that when some crimes will (do) include protesting in a public space outside an abortion mill, saying bad things about Obama, owning a Constitutionally protected firearm or accessory (in several states), defending yourself from an armed assailant when you (maybe) could have retreated (again in several states), etc.?

Even though only some officers carry Tasers, ordinary stun guns are cheap and can work very well in a lot of situations.

Rechargeable ones are on eBay starting at about $10, in basic black or pink. They have integrated extendable standard electrical prongs so don’t need a transformer. They fit in a soft little camera case.

And they make great stocking stuffers.

Ghetto reality: an out of control “ute” being punched in the nose by a cop evokes more outrage than a murder.

Ghetto drama with actors trying to insert themselves into center stage. These guys probably did not even know the investigative reasons behind closing off the crime scene.
