When you reach for a police officer's gun you should expect to get shot dead. These teenagers think they are immortal, and the law doesn't ever affect them. It would never occur to most people to grab the gun.

For some, boy, owning a gun is a "never occurrence".Btw. believe the kid was not carrying a gun.

Dear, I would prefer to see what the "transparent investigation" shows before vilifying and demeaning the young man.

Yes, do wait for the investigation to be completed. I believe the Police officer. I bet the person stupid enough to try to get a police officer's gun has a juvie record a mile long. He has no Daddy, and Granny is raising him. He has been raised to do as he pleases, and made his last bad choice. Let me know if it turns out different. This story plays out in his community time, and time again.

I will wait for the investigation to be completed before I pass judgment… I just find it pathetic how the right always seems to jump against the side of the minority or Black victim in every case. And then they wonder why their side is losing the country and can’t get Blacks or Hispanics to support or vote for them.
If this kid went for the Officers gun, from all accounts he still gave up with his hands in the air when he was shot. But like I said, I’ll wait; because unlike these racist right-wingers I actually want justice served be it by the cop being vindicated or convicted.

I can't imagine why we don't all want these people to live in our neighborhoods, play with our children, go to school with them. Visit over the back fence, etc. We could all go shooting together. Such fun. Did you see what they are doing in Missouri? They are totally uncivilized.

What are you doing, justifying the looting and rioting to cover up the looting? All you crazy wannabes sound like you're justifying a bunch of rioting lunatics, who are so characterless, they can't blame Obama for their unemployment. You know the looting has not a thing to do with the shooting, the first shot fired in the officer's car after the young gang thug mauled the officer, pushing him into the cruiser, then went for his gun.

I'm surprised that the police officer didn't have a untraceable
gun to plant on the victim. Must have used up the supply.

While you're waiting, enlighten yourself a bit.

When you read down the column of crimes, by percentage, committed by blacks, do keep in mind they only make up 13.2% of the American population.

The statistics are from your favorite government administration.

For the sake of argument, let's just suppose he had planted a gun on the kid.

Gun, or no gun, justify the looting, vandalism and destruction by the blacks.

Funny how the right celebrates those riots of the Boston Tea Party,(even naming their hate group after it)… and those “animals” were rioting over taxes… whereas these “animals” are rioting over a possible murder.
Funny how the right determines rioting to uprising depending on the color of the rioter’s skin.

You’ve been ridiculing the frustrations of minority communities for decades… but eventually, one way or another you’re going to have to deal with it, and their frustrations will transform into your frustration as the new demographics continues to transfer this nation from your hands to their… enjoy it while it lasts.

How does that have anything to do with this? But it is funny how you will point out the numbers but ignore cause and effect. Regardless, that is a problem that was created since the founding of this nation, it is an American problem that will effect this nation for generations as long as there are racist right-wingers on the right and fake civil right exploiters on the left. People like you are just as much part of the problem as those numbers.

Why do you not express your feeling on the subject of this thread instead of the unfortunate results of the kids death. Seems like you would rather deal with the effect than the cause.
