The only photo that I saw of this kid showed him flashing a gang-type handsign. I doubt that he was a stranger to crime!

We must remember, however, that all Blacks are innocent these days!

Note to the parent of this person - NICE PARENTING! He should have been at home learning morals, family values and how to contribute to society!

Well, I'm black and not all of us are innocent (sarcastic CCW) Not sure why the young male was out this time of night or what the facts are in the case but we all know that there are good cops and there are bad cops as well as good people and bad people. This should not be a racial issue. If I were a cop and a suspect had a gun, I'd react the same way whether he was white or black. Don't turn this into a race issue. Don't be stupid.

Again this kind of makes you wonder how Demeatrius Montgomery got the drop on two police officers and shot them both dead at point blank range.

At least that's the story the CMPD is pushing. But it is very unlikely that the murders were the work of one man.
