Is open carry even legal in Texas?
There needs to be better communication between police and people. Something is wrong.
Not the right way to be an attention whore.
Bang Bang Bang Stop or I’ll shoot.
Both the officer and victim are black.
Surprised they even covered it, this story is not very useful to the narrative.
Ok, seems his family knew he was having real problems. Where the fuch were they? What the hell was his family doing for him? They only care after something bad happens?
Cripes. Some family.
The perp was seen walking with pants down and what appeared to be a night stick hanging down below his waist...
The cop should not expect a rational response from a clearly irrational person walking through traffic with his pants down.
short answer ....... Yes
Reminds me of the movie “Crash.”
I didn’t know Danny Thomas was black.
“He was clearly walking, not running, toward the deputy not trying to hurt or harm him.”
He was also clearly disobeying repeated commands to lay down on the ground.
If this story is true, it is simply too sad to comment.
Any suggestions for better communication with an irrational person who is a danger to himself and others?
Let’s wait and see what the investigation comes up with.
Bath salts, PCP, meth involved?
The guy had had a physical altercation with the driver of a car he had hit, I’m assuming with his hand or hands. The article said the officer stopped because of it. He refused repeatedly to comply with the officer’s orders, and continued on toward the officer. Who knows how he would have reacted to a taser. I’ll leave it to the department to decide the officer’s fate, but the family saying it was “premeditated murder” is B.S.
And therefore, he deserved to be shot dead—unarmed and making NO threatening moves?
F--k that sh-t. Enough is enough. AND the cop had a taser that he could have used first.
We're living in a police state where cops are conditioned to place NO value on human life, even when there is no apparent threat. That's not protecting and serving...
So he had his pants down as a friendly gesture?
