Excellent comment! It's about time someone called out the mouth-pieces who are more concerned with what comes out of a cop's mouth than what comes out of their guns!
And, especially a police chief who waves her rainbow flag every chance she gets, gets her job because of it, than complains when she is called: A LESBIAN?

For all you True Racists out there that see skin color 1st (YES, I am refering to you Official Victims that make up the Peoples Demokrat Party of Amerika), This kid was slaughtered by the actions of individuals in the Law Enforcement Industries of Minnesota.

He received a Death Sentence because he was "Suspected" of committing a Non Violent Crime, chased down like an animal, trapped in a corner, and forced to choose "Fight or Flight".

This is not the Gangbanging "LEAN" Addict, Trayvon, who was busted Casing the neighborhood he liked to Rob, and then attacking the wrong Neighborhood Watch Guy. This kid was killed as much by the actions of the Police State (Street Cops carrying Military M-4 Rifles!!!!) as he was by his own actions.(And lets not forget about the civilian killed 1/2 hour AFTER the incident ended, by the Rambo Cops in a hurry to go see the Dead Kid and killing with a 6000lb Projectile driven carelessly!)

Not sure which story you all have read! When a person flees peace officers following a routine traffic stop, that is a crime(not to mention...suspicious). When he breaks into a home, that is also a crime.
It's not surprising to me that a person with a looooong criminal history including convictions for assault with a dangerous weapon and fleeing a peace officer did those things again, necessitating deadly force.
