There needs to be better communication between police and people. Something is wrong.

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.

Reminds me of the movie “Crash.”

“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.

"Thomas then struck a white vehicle...”

Whitey’s fault.

If this story is true, it is simply too sad to comment.

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.

"He was clearly walking, not running, toward the deputy not trying to hurt or harm him."

So he had his pants down as a friendly gesture?

Let’s see if this shooting passes my personal litmus test.

Say one of our soldiers, serving in a war zone (Iraq lets say), finds an incoherent unarmed Iraqi, pants around the ankles, middle of an intersection, messing with cars going by. By our current ROE, can he shoot him?

Why oh why, are the current police ROE less than those of our men and women serving in theatres of war? Police officers deal with American citizens, military deals with potential enemy combatants. Shouldn’t our police officers be held to a tighter ROE than our military, especially considering they are dealing with American citizens?

I also gotta wonder why he didn’t use the taser first.

It’s certainly not premeditated murder but it’s possible manslaughter. It’s obvious the officer was in fear of his life and, that alone, falls back upon who’s doing the hiring and training of the police in Houston. Whoever is doing the job is doing it poorly.
