They Posed A Threat - Good Shoot

Postby MSimon » Sat May 23, 2015 7:12 pm



He also determined that Brelo's use of force was constitutionally reasonable given that he and other officers perceived that Russell and Williams posed a threat.

"It is Brelo's perception of a threat that matters," O'Donnell said.

===========================

Well as long as one of these was noticed or felt:

"I feared for my life"
"Acting nervous"
"Furtive movement"
"Reaching for his waistband"
"Failed to follow orders"
"Seemed high on drugs"
"Reached for officer's gun"
"Procedures were followed."
"He made a furtive death twitch!"
"I smelled marijuana"

Good shoot.



The moral of the story? Never panic when police start shooting at you. That causes the police to panic. And fear for their lives.

If you decide to flee the police and evade them for more than 20 minutes, at speeds in excess of 100MPH, you have surrendered your right to life. By placing the lives of innocent citizens at risk, you have earned a bullet. I have no sympathy for criminals, doing crime when they get shot the way this guy did.

If this guy is so innocent, why was he evading police for 20 minutes at high speed? This ridiculous piece of pseudo-journalism doesn't say. What is does in use all manner of slanting through use of emotional language and other rhetorical fallacies to lead people to believe the police were at fault when in fact, is is the guy who got himself shot, who was responsible for this.

The really sad thing here is that people like this writer, and simon, can't tell who the criminals are. They think the police are wrong to use lethal force when assuredly they are not. When you pull this kind of stunt, you deserve to get shot. End of story--save for the details of who was maimed or killed by the criminals leading the police chase at such terrific speeds, in complete disregard for the safety of others.

Are you two actually arguing that when people are being chased by the police for 20 minutes and driving more than 100 MPH, the police should not be able to use lethal force? Forget the car backfiring. We have no idea what reason the police were chasing these criminals for. The hopeless piece of pseudo-journalism doesn't say. Obviously, they were not running from the police because they were driving a car that backfires, so the piece at the top of the thread is bullshit.

Given any cause at all, if the police are chasing someone and their response is to drive 100+ MPH, you don't think the police have the right to use lethal force?

Under what circumstances do you think the police ought to be able to use lethal force? Are there any?

But Brelo, who fired 49 of those shots, was the only one charged because prosecutors said he stood on the hood of his car and opened fire even after other officers had stopped shooting.

The man victim had a similar shot pattern on his corpse.
Russell and Williams were each shot more than 20 times.

"thinkprogress.org", reference FAIL.

"justice department", not a credible authority under the current regime.

Actually, with what appears to be considered 'normal' by them lately, I would think the Justice Department thinking a particular group is being too aggressive is a telling sign that the group is question may be way beyond acceptable levels.
