<quoted text>I agree. However, we all know black men have this negative stereotype placed on them because of a few criminial outcast and police are more inclined to use deadly force more so with blacks than whites, sometimes justified and other times not so much...
no we don't all know this -pls stop trying to turn everything into a race issue...black or white we all must obey the law.

i would be curious to see the vehicle that was used as a deadly weapon? no weapons were found?
What planet are you from ? Any vehicle can be a weapon. Here on earth even a pencil could be used as a weapon.

He didn't have to have a weapon. Why do people think an officer has to be shot at or see a weapon before they respond with deadly force? Graham v. Conner gives LEO's the right to act with deadly force based on the totality of circumstances, based on objective reasonableness. Look it up...
Yea, and Tennessee v. Garner gives federal prosecutors the ability to prosecute cops for illegal siezure if they merely shoot to stop someone.

ummm, it wouldn't matter if he was purple. If he was trying to run over the cop, who was black incidentally, that's enough justification for deadly force. Graham v. Conner
You're saying that a driver's gotta do like Ronnie White did in Prince George County, Maryland and get that cop up under the pickup truck and roll em up in a ball.

I agree with you and I have also see Brandon and let me say this if for some reason that was my son,,,,,,Well right or wrong he did not deserve getting shot by someone that was just scared of a young boy (THAT WAS UNARMED) and out of the car lets not forget,,,And was just to STUPID to act within the guidelines of the law and got trigger happy. Now keep in mind it was not just one of our FINNEST/HA HA HA, but several because there was 17+ shots that we know of. I hope that the cops that done this get whats comming to them AND I WILL PUSH IT TO THE VERY END. GOOD LUCK Brandon.
Mr Brown,
You clearly don't understand the arena of law enforcement. You seem to think that every patrol car riding around has spikes strips in the trunk..wrong. You seem to think that performing a PIT manuver is a commonly used police tactic that EVERY officer is trained on.. wrong again. In fact, most departments prohibit the use of the PIT. AND you say the police let this poor guy lay on the pavement for 20 minutes bleeding before picking him up and putting him in the helicopter..as if the helicopter was waiting in the area. He was not shot because he wouldn't stop...he was shot because he attempted to run over the officers..in two seperate incidents. His weapon was his vehicle. YOU need to get YOUR facts straight.

That classy, well thought comeback doesn't surprise me at all. Are you such an idiot to believe that all black people in prison are there only because they're black?! I suppose you're on the side of the abetting family of criminals who hid that piece of dog crap that shot and killed those four cops a few days ago. You're probably still waiting for your 40 acres & a mule, ain'tcha?

YOU'R AN ASS!!! We were talking about a young man that got shot from someone that made the wrong dission,BOTTOM LINE. But you want to make this a personal vendetta against those of us that KNOW and live here and seen what goes on, But do yourself a favor and come to Darien and see for yourself where it happened ands drive down 17 and see how long of a road it is and if you are a 16 year officer you WILL see how meny times ther COULD have stopped him without shooting. You need to see before you defend.Its not always the way you read.Before you get personal you need to know the facts. I LIVE HERE and have for 30 years, I DO KNOW. And for the other person I HAVE SPOKE TO GBI so speek what you know not what you think!!!
