The other terd was shot in the ass; Man, that was awful..... These bullet-heads can take one in the skull but that ass is for sittin' on; now what's he going to do? Wait, I know; hire some degenerate shyster and sue the citizens of our town, then collect 100% Social Security disability for the rest of his worthless life. What a Country, no wonder the unwashed masses are tunneling into OUR America. Three more months and we take out the trash.

No, Vallejo police killed a man who displayed a hand gun at 4:30 in the morning, in the dark and without submitting to police investigation.

That it turned out to be a pellet gun is entirely irrelevant when a potentially lethal weapon is pointed at you...at 4:30 in the morning, in the dark and without submitting to police investigation, in a known gang area.

You would do the same if you felt your life was threatened under similar circumstances and has nothing to do with racism or the KKK. Just forget about that nonsense.

First, why not try to communicate in proper sentences so your opinion can be considered.

Second, this incident has absolutely zero to do with race, color, ethnicity or sexual preference. Bad guys selling drugs in the wee hours and being questioned is the issue. Don't walk around with a gun, phoney or otherwise. That applies to whitie too. Easy stuff, if you are working and living on the right side of the law.

Oh, I see, so you must be black to know how it is with the blacks and police? I sense you to be a racist.

Shut up? Or what?

My pellet rifles and pistols are as lethal as any .22 long rifle. I treat them the same as any firearm. I know what they can do. They are not toys.

Sure they go through paper. They have a Thompson sub machine gun version of an air soft over at Big Five. I gurantee that if you point it at a cop you will be one dead idiot.

I am sorry, but I don't understand your language. Communicate in standard English and maybe we can have a discussion.
