dont underestimate a knife...i know the cops had their guns drawn and had the whole advantage but a knife is deadly bruh.
the cops were just doing what they're trained to do, kid was asking for it, shouldve just dropped the knife...
I don't wanna watch the OP video because I don't wanna get riled up. But from the comments it sounds like dude was inside a bus. If that's the case, the 21 foot rule should not apply. Also, if they had a tazer, then they had a means to end this conflict without death. This was excessive force.
Was the guy acting crazy? Violent? Belligerent? Sure. Why was no one asking if this guy may have had mental illness? Why is no one asking who his family is? Basically what happened is that cops are so in love with their "authority" and the increasing evidence that there are no repercussions for murder, even on video.....what happened was they didn't like that this kid wasn't doing what thy said instantly. And so the punished him for defying them. They were not concerned about safety. They were safe. He wasn't. They weren't concerned with his safety at all.
Racist, fascist shooting. Bottom line. And anyone taking the cops side are likely racist. But John Lamone doesn't even hide the fact.
