Re: Another unjustified killing of an unarmed man by cops

" He was reaching for the officer's gun" I call BS. And even if he was, unless he'd got a hold of it and had it firmly in his hand it still wouldn't justify shooting to kill. They already had him on the ground FFS and there were four cops. One baton swing on his hand would have stopped any further "reaching."

What gets me riled is that yet again, even if true. the story the cops give doesn't justify shooting but clearly enough people think it does for them to get away with.

You always started out the same way in these thread about shooting of unarmed black man.
Outrage at the beginning, followed by doubt in the victim version and increasing credibility given to the police version, ending with unflinching belief in the police version.

The issue is your poor comprehension of what I posted. The point I have made in all of them is this:

Even if what the cops claim is true, it still doesn't justify the shooting!

Understand now? Wow! It's not particle physics.

The other point I made in this one is that I also find it troubling that so many people do think the police version conveys an adequate justification. Apparently you are one of those people. And you are so locked on one aspect - conflicting stories - that you don't see the bigger picture.
