It makes no sense that a criminal, involved in a crime, who steals a weapon, attempts to murder/injure multiple officers trying to protect peace and property should have recourse to attack the police like this when the police protect themselves against him. I'd like to know what the family has to say about why he was not acting within the law, their responsibility or shame for that and what kind of example are they showing other children with their behavior now saying the law's to blame??? Sad. Lets talk about individuals really wronged. Lets help people with positive energy of all colors have/get/create better jobs. I'm sorry Mookie decided to waste his life, but that's not on us, or on the Mpls PD. If you make stupid decisions, there are consequences. Don't shoot anybody and maybe nobody will shoot back! If he were here, he'd blame everything he did wrong one of his many alias'- good grief! Live by the sword, die by the sword, I guess.

More Thug-Huggers trying to get their hands on some of that free money.
They know damn well the police who shot a felon who was supposed to be in prison are not going to be prosecuted. But, they also know the city will settle out of court because that's how they roll!

Is there any murderer, rapist, child molester, drug dealer, or other criminal you don't defend? You're so peculiar!

PS- Odd thingy about you, everyone is guilty, BEFORE the trial, but folks on your side of the aisle....
Zimmerman comes to mind. Your side still says guilty AFTER the trial (as well as before).

SO, did the million paid by the homeowners association. I'd explain the different degrees of guilt, but not to a dummy.....

The association has insurance, it was cheaper to pay the parents than have a trial. You'd know that if you owned ANYTHING!

A true internet troll such as this has no real political affiliation, no scruples, no "moral compass", and no boundaries it will not cross. He/she/it merely posts threats, insults, outrageous statements, sexual references, etc. All of this just to garner a reaction (ie...attention) from mostly rational people. Much like a dog behaves badly for attention, even if it's negative attention, until it's owner finally gets fed up and puts it down
