Never been a cop. Some friends over the years have been cops and I've learned a few things from them. Yeah, I've been stopped on traffic violations and even if I think the reason for the stop is "thin", I keep my hands visible, don't make rapid movements, don't use abusive language, I don't argue with the cop and I remain respectful. I also do as I am told by the cop. No matter how right I think I am, if I give the cop a problem I am in the wrong. Let the court sort it out.

Amen!
Ferguson shows how cops should wear video cams. Behavior more than weapons is the issue. Deap seated professionalism and a firm belief in Constitutional principles should be constatntly adhered to. Too many government agencies are armed to the teeth and have no business having their own SWAT teams when their function is overseeing administrative law not criminal law. Perhaps the government should also not be selling guns to drug dealers what "bright bulb" thought that one up?
Mark you missed the point. If he was surrendering and complying with the cop's instructions he would not be moving. A stationary target, I.e. an execution as the protesters say should not show the wound pattern exhibited. Did you notice who I was responding to? He thinks six bullets is unusual.
Then Sadaam would have been around to pay Hamas for each rocket they fired into Israel. The going rate for the suicide Palestinian bomber at the time was 25K to the family for each bus, mall, or restaurant that was blown up. That is what Sadaam was paying at the time.
Six bullets shows the cop was a bad shot. Not a single wound was center mass. Of course some would believe he shot while the hands were up. How many rounds could you put in an upraised arm?
Are Democrats going to riot again tonight in Ferguson?
When you get down to it the places that have the highest shootings and murder rates are Democrat controlled cities and have been that way for decades. Some say poverty drives the violence, I say if you look at whether it is black or Latino or white the worst places are where Democrats in power. The majority of the people in those cities vote Democrat, are Democrats and have been that way for perhaps generations. If you want to stop much of the violence do background checks on voting records and party affiliation. The problem in Chicago can more accurately be described as Democrat on Democrat crime. Conservative blacks have too much sense and respect for the law and are very much less likely to engage in gun violence.
Yep, wait till the "real" bad guys get here!
NYT should have used their spellchecker. It's not Travis County, it's Travesty County.
Carl Good thing it was only a semi-automatic post.
