Seems like a defensible shooting, even if a taser would have been better. I'm curious as to what kind of nazi tattoo is covered up by the sleeve on the shooter's left arm
There's a hook you can hang your hat on right by the door over there.
It's reasonable to shoot someone to prevent them from stabbing someone else.
There are plenty of egregious examples of police misconduct; this isn't one. I can understand why people would assume the worst of the police here, though.
I'm actually going to agree with Ashtar here. He is indeed "[filtered: Crackersmack's sock puppet]".
See the comments of https://tinyurl.com/ydxex9fy for how to get the same from Ashtar & Crackersmack.

Five stars for not having to listen to cracker's shit talkes on anything ever again.
hey Gmork how's your obesity problem going?
While i can't see the body of the text as its been replaced by "low credibility troll attempt" so I'm just going to assume the content of your response is equivalent to some sort of personal attack you'd expect from a high school bully.
Gmork I know you can read my posts (and you are also very fat)
hey crackersmack you have the same opinion on fat people as bill maher
Looks like the two of you have a lot in common!

What a shit show.
Looks like she was trying to stab the woman in pink.

I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt and assume I've just seen too many movies and there's a good reason for not having a warning shot into the air, which would probably get everyone's attention.
That would probably encourage reckless behavior, but man I can't imagine it getting any more reckless than this.
Thinking the same thing, why not shoot a bullet into the ground, the noise should scare the shit out of them.
Or shoot her leg?
Or maybe just not shoot her FOUR TIMES?
Warning shots are dangerous to the public (bullets land and ricochet), have questionable effectiveness, and you shouldn't use a deadly weapon for rhetorical purposes.
I wouldn't shoot someone in the leg unless I was prepared to kill them; a femoral artery hit would bleed them out in like a minute, and even a good shooter would miss a leg a fair percentage of the time.
Virtually all law enforcement agencies have policies prohibiting officers from warning shots or deliberate "wounding" shots.
A gun is a deadly weapon. Don't use it unless you have a good reason to kill someone (that is, if someone poses a deadly threat to you or someone else). If you do use it, shoot center mass until the threat is neutralized.
At the very least, firing a warning shot carries less risk to everyone present than FOUR SHOTS AT SOMEONE LOCKED IN A CLOSE SCUFFLE.
The no benefit of the doubt side of me is thinking the cop didn't care who he hit in a fight between two black people.

i mean, if they shot a white guy trying to stab the girl in the pink, would anybody care?
also, should anybody care in that case?
the answer to both is no. you have been baited. this is kind of what i would want a police officer to do in that situation.

The pig murdered a teenager.

Yes, she had a knife. I also remember recently a white boy had an assault rifle, killed two people, and went home. I'm not sure the anger is about just this specific police shooting, but the completely obvious double standards in policing.
Yeah, he was holding an AR and walked right by police and they let him go. Having strict rules but selectively enforcing them is the definition of bias. All the cops on scene should be, at least, fired for dereliction of duty. There is no way anyone that did that could ever be trusted to treat the members of their community equally.

Did the "white boy" continue shooting people as the police showed up, or point his gun at the police, or try to fight and/or run away as he was being arrested? I'm guessing he didn't, because white people get put down in those situations also.

I'll keep repeating it: unless you are trained in it, killing someone with a knife is surprisingly difficult. As was pointed out above, they could have done a warning shot, could have physically tackled her, shot ONCE maybe? Even if the victim or the cop gets stabbed once, that's better than the aggressor dying. We have laws for dealing with stabbings, she'd get punished. The penalty for a freakout, even a violent one, shouldn't be automatically death.
ez using the term "put down" is especially gross. That's a euphemism for killing animals. He's treating people like nuisance animals.
