The woman did the right thing considering what she knew at the time and the circumstances. However, the police had a responsibility to look further into the matter rather than 'assume' the worst. This guy is going to go down for this. This was a crime no matter how you spin it. I find it hard to believe that a man who just survived a car wreck is 'charging' officers. Maybe, he approached the officers and was excited to see them. And, we need to look into the statements made by the accompanying officers too. If, it is determined that they were deceptive, they should also lose their badges.

He could have had a concussion and was confused but to shoot 10 bullets in the guy and the other cops did not shoot obviously the cop should not be one since its sounds like he forgot his training and panicked. Either way no matter what you felt you don't pump someone full of bullets.

I fully agree with your assessment. I also read a report that the officer was assaulted by one of his own. Even they felt the officer was out of line. How could you have unloaded your gun on a man who posed no real threat at all?…especially, when it would have been 3 on 1; his fellow officers would have had his back in case he would have been in any real danger. It is easy for me to second guess this officer, but I do not hear or read anyone taking this guys side. I am sure he is terribly sorry, but he took a life because he lacked the capacity to do his job with courage. That, is clear.

Nothing new here.... CMPD has been killing unarmed black folk and getting away with it for a long time.
The woman who wrecked her car, woke up and tried to take off while the po-po was leaning in trying to turn it off;
The guy who got shot 17 times in front of his 10 year old daughter while reaching for his wallet over on Hawthorne Ave;

Anybody else remember these?
Went nowhere... nothing was done. This good ole boy is gonna walk on a technicality.

Uh uh. Rodney Monroe is a good man and police chief. He's NOT going to tolerate this good-ole-boy cowboy mentality.

I have not heard from you in quite some time. I have never heard of any of these cases, ut I have only been down here fro 8 years or so. Black do not get a fair shake at the justice system, but it does beg the question; how much of this do we bring on ourselves? How many of us are not participating in our children's lives? How many single mothers are out there trying to play daddy? How many of us are not finishing HS? There is no doubt that our treatment is not consistent with our white counterparts, but what culpability do we have as black-Americans?

Secondly, do you see this case as a racial issue? If so; how? From everything I have read, the officer was only close enough to see a silhouette. Race is too easy an excuse in this matter. The officer was a coward, and he was motivated by his fear(s). And, he should never have been permitted to be in law enforcement.

Did you get a look at the photos of the officer and victim? Did you notice they made the victim look huge and the officer like he was a 7th grader? I played college football and corner backs are smaller people. But, the image that was provided suggested that he was much larger. I guess as a former line backer, they would have only had room to show my neck.

If you stop and think back over the last few months, how many crimes has blacks committed in charlotte? They behavior has caused this problem. More crimes are committed by blacks than any other race. Just go to the whos in jail site and ck it out yourself if you dont believe me. The history they have made makes everyone a little leery of a black male running at you. They have brought this on themselves by their behavior. Tell me,how many of you,black, white, or whatever race you are would hang around to see what the black man running at you, not stopping when you ID yourself as police, continue to run full at you. How many of you would just stand there and wait to see if he was going to ask you for directions or try to rob you, kidnap you or what. Not many of you would hang around to see what happened.

You really lack education don't you? Yes, black males are over represented with the penal system. But when you compare the similar crime of their white counterpart, blacks are incarcerated at double the rate. Why is that? This is more of a class argument than race.

Ignorant people only see race. Class, education, and other social ques require thought and intelligence. Something you lack.

That young man is not dead because he was black. That man is dead because the cop was a coward. And, at 3:30 in the morning, I'm not sure if you can see anything more than a shape of his frame.

Your comments are based on ignorance.

Stop and think about charlotte. Just charlotte.. Go look at the whos in jail site for charlotte. How many black people are locked up for committing horrible crimes? RAPE, MURDER are just a few. Now scan through and see how many white people are in for the same crimes.I dont think you will be surprised. I would have done the same thing if a black man came running toward me, did not follow my commands, in the middle of the nite. The black race has brought this on themselves because of all the crimes they commit. There is not a night that the news does not have black crimes. Its sad this happened but until they learn to behave and stop acting like gangsters, this will keep happening.

These are police officers with guns not a regular citizen of any race out at 2 am for a stroll. I thought the police video did not record any words from the police and only the sound of gunshot and that the police officer also moved out of video viewing range while shooting. If the guy was injured he may not have been able to respond to verbal commands anyway--if you are in an accident and have a concussion or other head damages you do not know who you are or what happened.

What about the white guy the police killed who was a technician out at 2 or 4 in the am was called out to work on equipment and was shot and police claimed they thought he had a gun and instead it was a wrench. They were called by another business owner who thought it was someone robbing the place too. Poor guy was just trying to do his job and he had no clue what hit him.

You cannot determine ones race at 3:30 in the morning. Everyone looks like a human being at 3:30 AM. Your assessment is a reflectoin of your ignorance.

Things can be changed to go the way ole laughrun may want it to go.
If he cares about the case.
sometimes he will just take a case to get his name out there for other prospects.
laughrun is a liar and an idiot.
