Shock Video: Police Execute Man With His Hands Up

    Editor’s Note: Was this police shooting justified? The man appears to have his hands up and doesn’t seem to be an immediate threat, but police say he picked up a rock at some point during the incident. Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars reports…


    Shocking video shows a man being gunned down by police as he attempts to flee with his hands up. The man reportedly did not have a gun and merely picked up a rock during the incident.

    The confrontation occurred last night at a busy intersection in Pasco, Washington after officers responded to reports of a disturbance at a nearby grocery store. The man reportedly threw a rock at a passing vehicle.

    After a taser round failed to apprehend the individual, he fled across the street. Footage shows the man running away with his hands up. As he turns around to face the officers he is shot numerous times.

    At least 13 gunshots were fired by the officers, who decided to shoot “after the man refused to listen to their commands,” according to Police Capt. Ken Roske. Apparently, refusal to instantly comply now mandates summary execution.

    “All I saw was this poor guy was running from the cops and I saw him go down,” one witness said. “I saw the cops shooting at him. I didn’t see no gun. No reason. I just saw him go down.”

    “I really thought they were just going walk up and tackle or tase him,” another witness said. “But they opened fire. His back was turned.”

    Numerous eyewitnesses, including children, saw the incident unfold. After the man was shot, his dead body was handcuffed by police.

    The officers will be placed on paid leave while police investigate the incident. The victim has not been named.

      1. Are they asking to start a citizen war?

        • Sorry stupid on purpose question that we all know the answer to

          • fucking pigs

            • This is great, now all they have to plant on you is a ROCK in order to justify murdering you. This will slide nothing will happen. Too bad the man doesn’t appear to be black, at least the black community would do something, anything, about it. Me… since I’m a white registered republican, and patriotic American…. I will stand with the police who were just doing their tough job to protect me and keep America safe, and sing God bless America……. while waving my flag and saluting the troops.

              • I am so sick and tired of seeing 8 ARMED men unload on 1 UNARMED individual. No matter what the circumstances. How long will we continue to tolerate this. Someone please tell me in what world this type of behavior is OK. A whole mob of armed people against one unarmed in any F-ing scenario is MURDER plain and simple. But apparently in our world it is becoming commonplace and acceptable…..You know, for our safety of course…

              • This is the 3rd Pasco police murder this month. In all cases there was no reason for the police to open fire.

              • I’m a very, very conservative Republican in my 60s. Been one my entire life. If these guys are found guilty (which it looks like they are) they should face a Firing Squad! Just like what they did to this poor fellow. So very sad. 🙁

        • They are trying their best…

          • Are they asking to start a citizen war?

            “After the man was shot, his dead body was handcuffed by police.”

            I’d say so.

          • Well their best is not good enough. This was simply an execution of an unarmed disturbed man! And you come up with, ” They are trying their best…” This happened at night but you could clearly see everything. And you think that Hitler was just doing his best too..huh?

        • More of the same shit, new day.

        • Well, obviously the victim is not black, because Jesse and Al and obama and Holder would be on the premises slamming the police

          • He was an Ompah Loompah you can tell how he’s running.
            I made a move like he was a gun.

        • This is outrageous!! I live in this town, and tomorrow I will be on the phone with the state attorney general, the police chief, city councilwoman and the county sheriff.

          There have been other questionable incidents in this area – and they are always quick to pull out the swat team for almost anything!

          This local sheriff accepted M16’s and 2 fully automatic M14s from the gob’mint and if local people don’t get involved to put a stop to this kind of thing then all hope is already lost. I don’t want to see the “hands up” crowd of communists and anarchists take this over and turn it into something that it’s not.

          This area is < 1% black, 35% Latino and probably 10-15% illegals….just providing some context for ya'all

        • Yes, they are. But in the end, they will be gunned down en masse’ as hitler’s brown-shirts were. The majority of people that strike back will be law-abiding citizens with
          no previous criminal history. They are indeed sealing their fate

      2. What part of stop do people not understand? I agree that there is to much gunning down of innocent people in this country but I got to believe that people have just lost their fear of the cops. When I was a kid and a cop yelled freeze, I or anybody else would freeze in place. Like hiking and some one yells freeze, you know there is a snake, same thing. Just goes to show you that people have no respect for the law or should I say the power of the law. How many people must be gunned down before they realize that if you don’t do it you are going to die.


        • BigB: How about we pass a law for the serial rapists? Something like: If you are being raped, don’t resist or you’ll be raped twice.

        • I guess I need to clarify the above post. What is the purpose of dying when you are outnumbered? Live to fight another day when your odds are better than zero.


          • What makes you think stopping will save your life? These cops love killing

        • BigB.

          This ain’t no damn Video Game. That’s for sure.

          No Reset in the Reset. :0)

          • That’s right slingshot, Dead is dead. And since everyone is piling on me because of my statement above I will further add that it is mostly young black men getting shot by the police. Reason: Because they have been raised to think they can flaunt any and all forms of authority. Well that is about as far from the reality of life as you can get. But I guess that is what you get when there is no father figure and ass bites like Al Sharpton encourage this shit to further his racist ass.

            So down thumb this all you want.


            • Said the pot, calling the kettle black……

              • Turnthekey,
                You got that right.

            • I was raised to respect authority by two wonderful parents. However, I don’t take too kindly to anybody that thinks they have authority over me. And as far as so-called experts go, they are definitely meant to be questioned. Never was part of the herd and never will be. The non-questioning of most everything has led to
              the mess we are in now.

            • So it would turn out that in the end of the Alex Jones hyperbole that the lesson we can learn from all of this is that you don’t throw rocks at the police. They will kill you for it.


            • BB I guess this guy missed the Lesson On Freeze..The TSA tried to get people Used to the Command, and I guess they never Started this Program on Mass Transit….

            • white men are killed by cops about 3 to 1 black.Don’t spread propaganda.

            • Right, we need to respect those ass clowns wearing badges because THEY know whats best for us?!

              Here’s a thought, cops need to lay off the enforcement of “Codes, Statutes, and Policies” twisted by color of law interpretation with the sole purpose being to steal fine repayment money from the subjects.

              No victim, no crime, ignore the corp. law and uphold Common Law!

        • The problem is cops get away with gunning down unarmed people. If they start getting charged with murder is when people will stop being shot for running. Running away is not a crime punished by death. The root cause is cops kill without consequence.

        • Bigb, in that video, the suspect’s hands were clearly empty. He was no threat to anyone. Those cops would be very hard-pressed to justify the shooting. This could have been handled differently. There is a world of difference between enforcing laws for a legitimate purpose and an illegitimate purpose.

          • Lawful vs. Legal.
            A lot is legal according to the letter of the Law.
            On the otherhand, much of what is legal isn’t Lawful.

        • How about; they start to understand past a point WE aren’t going to take it, and THEY will go down

        • Police are getting away with outright murder. Now the damn politicians want to be exempt from more laws when they are exempt from MANY already.

        • What is nerd? What is troll?

        • You’re bat-shit crazy if you think that guy wasn’t scared.

          He was crapping his pants all over the place and was in fight or flight mode. The pigs had NO reason to shoot him.


          Those pigs do not get to be judge, juror AND executioner. They had MANY options besides lethal force, including letting him run away. But no, they killed him for “throwing a rock at a car”.

          • I mean that in the nicest way, BTW (that you’re bat-shit crazy) I just forgot to put a 🙂 in there.


        • I agree. He played a game and won his prize . Never invite the man in your life .

      3. Well, here we go again. If the victim was black, look for another Ferguson.

        • Hispanic guy this time. It’ll be interesting to see if certain “civil rights activist” rabble rousers will show up this time

          • Before we start any race wars, first we must determine. Was this a white hispanic or a black hispanic. Trekker Out.

          • What, La Raza didn’t march over this? They should’ve. People of all color should march whenever any unarmed person gets shot down by police. If We’re not doing anything wrong in this country, we shouldn’t need to fear police. They have no business messing with people unless a crime has/is being committed, or someone is in imminent danger.

            Walking down the street is not a crime…usually.

          • They showed up. La Raza and the Mexican race pimps are camping out in Pasco right now. Pretty calm, though, they know half on any arrests will be illegal aliens.

        • Hispanic guy

      4. This is what happens when run away debt slaves run from slave bounty hunters.

        The bounty hunters get paid for killing escaped slaves and get a vacation.

        Comply or die.

        • This is what happens when more scumbag lawyers and cops don’t end up as body parts tossed in random they should.


        “War is a racket for the rich. The peasants who buy into the incessant patriotic propaganda and volunteer are nothing but cannon fodder for the .1%. Keeping the masses fearful of phantom enemies and portraying foreign leaders as evil, is essential for the oligarchs to retain their wealth, power and control. Truth, facts, and long-term consequences are of no interest to the sociopaths running the show and pulling the levers. The dissent into darkness has been gradual and unnoticed by a purposefully distracted populace.”

        “Those in the highest echelons of wealth and power have captured the three branches of government (executive, legislative, judicial) and are ruthlessly ransacking the remaining wealth of the nation. Their unquenchable desire for more wealth and power has never been more blatantly obvious than in the aftermath of the 2008 financial collapse created by their derivative orgy of debt which blew up in their faces.”

        “As trust in the political, economic and financial systems implodes, the existing social order will crumble and be swept away in a torrent of chaos and upheaval. Severe misery will settle on our land and tear the fabric of our society. Internal strife will be compounded by external threats, with citizens fighting each other and nations going to war on a large scale. It has happened before and it will happen again. “

        • Read “War Is A Racket” by Smedley Butler, one time Commandant of the Marine Corps.

        • You Sir, are absolutely correct. I was having this exact conversation with a coworker last night. Things are not going to end well here. To think what our forefathers bore to have a “free” country, and to see it all stolen in front of our eyes is shameful. When the reset comes, it will be painful….

      6. The only difference between these killers in uniform and the subhuman killers in ISIS is that the uniform killers don’t cut the heads. YET.

      7. Fucking oinkers……

        There time is coming.

      8. These pussy ass cops couldn’t have tackled him ? lmao.

        I can’t wait for the time to come.

        • Acid Etch–Sign in please

      9. I hate to see anyone die for any reason but a little more info is needed before a conclusion is reached in this case.

        • Yeah, because gunning down a man who has no weapon and is running away from murderers might actually be justified if we can just get a little more information.

          • Well put BJ, that’s the point I would expect good old sgt dale to make!

      10. I’m not saying its justified but unless you can run at 1400 FPS or maybe even 3200 FPS Its not smart to run from cops.

        • Kevin,
          Even if the gentleman could have gotten away, one thing that is certain – you can’t outrun a radio signal. APB’s for whatever he did will almost get a 60 or more pairs of eyes looking for him.
          Stay warm, have a good evening.

          • And is it appropriate to use all that man-power, force and tech for someone who whizzed on a bush? How about a man who fell asleep on a park bench? Someone who left his ID at home? Where do we draw the line at which, it is no longer appropriate to use hundreds of man-hours and thousands of dollars worth of technology to chase someone down, just because we don’t like that they’re running?

        • Holy Shit. I read the comments before watching the video. These officers should be tried for murder. Its that simple. In fact, their punishment should be 10 times what it would be for a normal person as they are wearing a badge AND are trained. Imagine if a concealed carry person did this? I think it might be legal in Texas IF the person is on you property AND IF they hold something of yours in possessions. I think NEITHER of these appears in this video. This is REALLY, REALLY bad. I cannot believe the Chief would protect these cold blooded murderers. He should be fired immediately. Probably this victim had some dirt on these officers and they needed to kill him to protect their own mafia. I think that is the most probably explanation.

          • And explains why he wanted to run. He knew this was a hit and not an arrest. So, he was trying to figure out what to do as he knew these men were sent to kill him.

          • Imagine if these were five security guards at the local mall. It is insane the police are protecting these murderers.

        • Ambush? Hog pens?

        • Maybe fear set in. I’m certainly afraid of cops and I’m an upper 40’s white guy with no tattoos.

        • @kevin

          yah, just don’t run from the police and you won’t have to die, then next we’ll be saying yah just don’t backtalk or hell even question them for that matter, and you won’t have to die. That is just such a flawed logic to me. I for the life of me cannot understand that mentality.

          Tell me what danger a single unarmed man running away from an entire mob of armed men is any threat to the mob of armed men. I know I don’t know all the details, and this guy may be the worlds biggest POS, but 3 armed men gunning down 1 unarmed man is MURDER any way you look at it…Oh wait they planted a rock on him, nevermind it was justified…

      11. My greatest fear is that open season is about to be declared on the badge. Yes there are bad apples every where. Shame it has boiled down to this, but I feel that this is what they (TPTB) want. That means that the end has truly arrived. IMHO.

        • The biggest problem with cops is the so called “good cops” never speak out. Therefore they are all bad.

          • The cops need to remember that there are cameras everywhere either on buildings or someone’s cell phone. Better to let someone go than deal with cameras.

            • They don’t care about the cameras. They go free IN SPITE OF the cameras.

              • sixpack

                I was getting ready to comment on Jim’s post because I literally laughed at it, but looked down and you already had it for me. I think it’s funny how people think these stupid body cameras are going to do a damn thing. You can film a whole mob of guys shooting a man in the back in hi-def from four different angles with audio and sub titles for the deaf and hearing impaired…. And the SOB’s will still walk away with a freaking medal and a promotion.

                Land of the free….

        • “Badges” have a DUTY to protect everyone – including those committing crimes – or who they would like to question or control. Summary execution is NOT in their oath or job description.

          A public servant’s life is not more valuable than anyone they are trying to arrest.

          • I agree their life is no more valuable than anyone else but, they have no obligation to protect anybody except themselves. Research it.

      12. Speaking of blacks, did you catch this one this week? Dr. Ben Carson, who worked his way up out of poverty to become a dept head at Johns Hopkins, is being called a hate criminal by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Leftists say and do the darndest things, don’t they! Story is on many sites, but one is here:

        Oh yes, the fascist SPLC? Check out the digs of Learjet leftist Morris Dees – the white guy leading the SPLC who is dissing the black guy who came out of poverty – has in the story below. Learjet leftists of the world, unite!!

          Truth is Hate to those that Hate the Truth.

      13. And speaking of the H8TE-filled, racist left, try these quotes on for size – in the never-ending quest to keep you updated on the hate-filled, hypocritical, Orwellian world of liberals, here are some hate-filled lib quotes:

        “I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease.”
        Liberal USA Today columnist Julianne Malveaux on Clarence Thomas

        “Blacks and Hispanics were too busy eating watermelons and tacos to read the fine print on the phony insurance policies.”
        Mike Wallace, of 60 Minutes fame

        “If there is justice, he’ll get AIDS, or one of his grandchildren will get it.”
        NPR’s Nina Totenberg on Jesse Helms, wishing a disease on someone – or his innocent grandchildren – that I wouldn’t want my worst enemy to have.

        “Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
        Former CBS News president Richard Salant.

        Quoted from You Don’t Say, by Fred Gielow, Freedom Books, 1999

        Alan Pyke, deputy economic policy editor for the far-left Think Progress blog in reaction to the Fox News Channel’s coverage of the unrest in Ferguson: “I hope Roger Ailes dies slow, painful, and soon. The evil that man has done to the American tapestry is unprecedented for an individual.”
        How nice.

        Need a little male sexism? Well, look no further than Gene Lyons, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, who stated “Ann Coulter displays all the feminine warmth of a water moccasin.” Gee, Gene, a little afraid of a strong, confident woman who speaks her mind, are we?????

        And some oh-so-typical racism from libs and their party of KKKByrd:

        – Garry Trudeau, he of dated, boring Dunesbury (wonder if he’s still wearing platform shoes and into disco?), caricatured Condi Rice and put a label under her calling her “Brown Sugar.” Nice touch there, Garry. All you need now is a white robe with one of those pointy little hoods.

        – Lib racist Pat Oliphant incredibly pictured Rice as a big-lipped parrot in one of his “cartoon” (yes, everyone finds racism “real” funny, Pat). .

        – But, as they say in the commercials: Wait, there’s more… Jeff Danziger has shown Rice as the servant in Gone with the Wind (frankly Jeff, to paraphrase Clark Gable – and as shown in the last few elections – no one gives a damn about anything you liberals have to say)

        – Ted Rall referred to Condi as the president’s ‘House N-word’… however, Jesse Jackson has, insofar as I know, not had– for the first time ever that I can remember – any protest to lodge over this.

        – Finally, one upping the former DEMOCRAT Gov. of Alabama, George Wallace, John Sylvester, in P.C. Madison, called Condi an “Aunt Jemima.”

        – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said last year that the Supreme Court’s lone black member was “an embarrassment to the court.”

        – Left wing Democrat Ted Kennedy’s brother, former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, ordered the illegal wiretapping of Martin Luther King

        – Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean suggested a few years ago that most blacks hold menial jobs in a speech

        – Great stuff, isn’t it? No wonder African-American are abandoning the Dodo libs en masse.

      14. i watched the video so i have a wright to comment on it.
        i don’t see how the cops who shot him can live with themselves. after shtf, i’m sure all cops will group with other cops, or they don’t tell anyone they used to be cops.

      15. I have no doubt that most, if not all, you sheeple here would have shot the guy if he had thrown a rock at you vehicle and ran. So why criticize the cops then?

        • D and C, put down he crack pipe.

          • I meant to say the crack pipe. Typing too fast.

        • No. Just, no.

        • There should be some good camera footage from the station.

      16. Apparently the “Don’t Hesitate” practice targets were quite successful.

      17. If I had been present at this incident, I would have taken my rifle out of my car and gunned down the cops. This is a clear case of murder under color of law. Time to start publishing the home addresses of these psychopaths and administering a little justice.

        • A red dot on their mailbox will suffice…

      18. “I know the police cause you trouble
        They cause trouble everywhere
        But when you die and go to heaven
        You find no policemen there.”

      19. Poor grandfather in alabama, thrown to the ground by police for no reason, paralyzed.

        Is this what you people want ? A police state ?

        You’re either with us, or the oinkers in blue.

        I don’t dance to the govt. tune.

      20. Perhaps the suspect had delinquent court warrants or parking tickets..

        After all it;s near mid month for revenue enhancement via the constabulary..

        Most towns, cities, and states face massive budget shortfalls and trillions collectively for “unforeseen ” pension liabilities..

        Most likely they’ll sue,or confiscate, his ‘estate’ for unpaid violations since he can not now pay in person..

        Love your government benefactors..


        • Love your government benefactors or eliminate them.

        • He did have a criminal history of assault on his wife, on a police officer the year before, and attempting to grab the officer’s gun during that assault. At the last event, he didn’t ‘merely pick up a rock’, or ‘reportedly threw a rock at a passing car’, he was throwing fist-sized rocks at multiple cars and passers-by, pulled out the police taser wires (you see him do that in the video next to the cruiser, although no one seems honest enough to mention that in the video or the story), and was throwing a rock at the police when he was shot dead. The news up here is a lot more informative that what is posted above.

          I don’t think they needed to shoot him 13 times, either, but to go on a rant without all the facts is what someone wants you to do.

          • What the police did was criminal – if you want to be a cop, then there are going to be some inherent risks….

            Yes, even rocks…

            Personally I believe that the police should not be allowed to use deadly force until they are fired upon – again, you assume the risk by taking the job, you are trained and you have the best physical protection available…

            In many situations in Iraq, our soldiers were not allowed to fire until fired upon (not that I agree in that situation)

            Does anyone really believe that THREE cops could not tackle this man with a rock??? Gimme a break.

            I already spoke with the city councilwoman, and have demanded a citizen review of the city training program for their “public safety officers”, which may get some traction – oh, and a 25 Million dollar lawsuit has already been filed, which will be paid by the citizens of the city..with loss of services and increased taxes in the future…

            Criminals need to be punished, cops or no cops…what this guy did in the past does NOT matter.

      21. They have declared war on the citizens. If you don’t run, they rob you. If you run, they kill you, then rob you.

        When people start shooting back, these sons of bitches will run and scream to their superiors like scared little girls.

        • Concerned citizen, welcome aboard, and I have that same fear. It’s at the boiling point now between the people and LE. LE needs to take a few steps back, take a chill pill, time out. They need to do some soul-searching and re-evaluate their entire way of doing their job. They need to reject all the federal influence, i.e., stop drinking the federal koolaid. They need to take that federal “us vs. them” attitude and throw it in the trash can. They need to stop accepting federal grants for any purpose and let’s regain control of our local LE agencies. They don’t have the numbers to take on the entire population and they know it. It would be in their best interest to follow the advice I’m posting. There does not have to be a war between the people and LE. LE will lose despite their military hardware, etc.

      22. Maybe the guy was mentally ill? Our local cops arrested & beat up an old man they thought was drunk. It turned He was a diabetic and was having a episode. He wasn’t driving. He went into a store grabbed a candy bar and started eating it the check out line. some asshole called 911 on a cell phone. Anyone watching the video of this killing knows this was a murder execution.

        • Whomever called 911 needs his/her ass kicked. Obviously the man was trying to pay for it, had they just waited a minute.

      23. “You buys your ticket and takes your chances.”

        Lots of good stuff out there. Police brutality, Road Rage, Domestic violence, Murder, Drive by killing of innocents, elderly abuse.

        Who died and made you Boss? Smith and Wesson of course.
        You enter the game with your first, “Oh, shit”. Then you decide right then and now, how the game ends. Choose correctly or die. Lots of people going to die in the Learning Curve. Has to be someone to piss in your cornflakes. Police, Military, Terrorist or the Whack a doddle who is pissed of at the world.

        I look forward to the days ahead.

        Lots of good stuff out there. Police brutality, Road Rage, Domestic violence, Murder, Drive by killing of innocents, elderly abuse.

        Who died and made you Boss? Smith and Wesson of course.
        You enter the game with your first, “Oh, shit”. Then you decide right then and now, how the game ends. Choose correctly or die. Lots of people going to die in the Learning Curve. Has to be someone to piss in your cornflakes. Police, Military, Terrorist or the Whack a doddle who is pissed of at the world.

        I look forward to the days ahead.

      25. Caedite eos! Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.

      26. With all the uniformed officers there where was K-9 ?


        • He didn’t look to have done anything to deserve getting mauled by a dog either. This “by whatever means necessary” shit has got to stop. There are limits to everything.

      27. Looks like the deceased was white, doubt that this story will get much media attention.

        • It will get MSM attention once all the Blacks and Browns goes the way of the reds. But by then it will be to late.

      28. Ugh…after reading all the comments, not sure that I care to watch the video, my blood pressure is high enough already.

        • I’m not on blood pressure medication anymore, so I really have to be careful with this kind of shit. I can red line much easier now.

      29. I would say that these cops are fucked.

        • they won’t be. paid administrative leave. they get a paid vacation from the taxpayers and will back each other up in testimony. thin blue line. blah, blah, blah. nobody with a conscious could be a LEO outside of a few constitution following sheriff’s offices.

        • Skep. Their asses will be once they’re in the big house. Pigs always get “special” treatment when they find themselves on the inside… Enjoy your prison time you murdering cock suckers.

      30. Geeeez Louise…just watched the video…and now I’m vibrating with great discourse. There has got be some great big pushback from this, am very disgruntled.

      31. the phrase ‘officer safety’ has been drummed into these goons. ‘public safety’ apparently has not been. as someone who has worn the uniform, i understood that while i was wearing that uniform, a civillian’s life was worth more than mine. i took the job, signed the contract, etc… my job was to protect the taxpayers. if i died, no big deal, comes with the territory. if they died on my watch then it was through my fault if i could have responded differently. ‘officer safety’ is a ridiculous phrase when they think that it trumps ‘public safety’. you get paid to protect the public. the public pays your salery for this. average joe is your boss. if you disagree, then you have no business wearing a uniform/badge. protecting citizens from other citizens, fire away. protecting police from citizens… better re-read the constitution. it is 1000 times better an innocent police officer or soldier die at the hands of a nefarious citizen than an innocent citizen die at the hands of a nefarious officer/soldier. don’t believe me? reread the constitution. get a tutor if the big words confuse you.

      32. how does someone get the ability to post to this site without having to await moderator approval?

        i have only posted about 100 times from the same IP address. same name, same IP, never had a comment below 50% approval rating. what gives?

        • Knight use an email address when posting, even if it’s fake and it should begin auto approving comments soon after .


      33. How do you spell Fucking Pigs? My speller is bad.

      34. Enough is enough, It seems the police in this country only understands violence. How many murders will have to take place before the people rise up? This has become a tyrannical governmental police force, that understands nothing but violence. Nothing is ever done even about them, they always get off the hook by the police commission and retain their job. Maybe it is time for a citizen war. Since it seems the police have a quota in killing now, i think it is time for war.

      35. Wow, once again if you run you get killed.

        Granted, we don’t know the whole back story but the video doesn’t lie.

        The day the citizens say enough is enough (why we aren’t already, I’m not sure – maybe when they kill a nice white woman and her little girl for making a right on red we’ll take notice) will be interesting.

        I know if I’m still strong enough come that day it’s not the cops I will pursue. What I will pursue will make them think twice about going to work.

        When shooting at a tank don’t take it head on; you’ll lose. Top of the turret and the tracks; that stops tanks. Same with the US brownshirts. Don’t take them head on – you’ll lose. What keeps them going? What’s the one thing always on their mind; HOME. When daddy goes to work to kill people maybe daddy doesn’t come home to the house he left.

        Of course there’s always hitting their support lines too. Most cities only have one or two antenna’s for their radio’s. No comm’s leaves a JBT very vulnerable.

        Oh this is sooooo easy. They THINK it’s begun; not even close.

        • Really!!! Good post and to the Point..If these JBT had to Worry about Home and Hearth, maybe they would Have a Better Out look on the Limits of their Job…I can see the Day when they will all be Targets., and they deserve what they Get..Good Cops will be on the Side of the People..Provided they choose NOW…Its going to be a Rude Case of Reality for all the Brown Shirts!!!

          Semper Fi

      36. Rocks, very scary when your a pussy with a gun.

        That was not a justified shooting, period. That was intentional for bragging rights back at the camp and to instill fear in the population.

        Lets see I they get away with it.

      37. Remember since 7 of 2001 DHS has been educating that our forefathers were terrorist, so I guess their mindset might be that those who stands up for the Constitution are terrorist.

        As far as the shooting goes it all can stop if the DOJ wanted it to with one nation wide memo. Instead the DOJ is allowing this kill first mentality against our fellow citizens.

        I bet they call this intimidation? Placing fear into the people, why does this remind me of the tactics of Communist countries and the likes of the SS and KGB?

      38. Bullets are faster than pot-bellied cops. Smarter too.

      39. When men put on badges they lose their balls and grow pussies. They are afraid of everything, so they become alcoholics and beat their wives. Accounts for high divorce rate for cops. Why would a woman want to be married to a pussyman?

      40. That idiot should have not been resisting arrest and committing crimes to begin with. You reap what you sow.

      41. What will happen next time… Cops will shoot and possibly kill someone running away or someone trying to surrender and an Armed Citizen will return fire and kill the cops.. And I’d see this as justified in defending the Public from out of Control Militarized Police!

      42. “Was this police shooting justified?”
        If you have to ask, you’ll never know.
        Now you will surely never know.
        What a dumb as dogshit question.

      43. I wish I had a shiny badge that gave me the right to shoot/kill someone because I felt “afraid” for my safety!
        Or a shiny badge so I could do anything I wanted.
        In South Carolina cops shot at 43 people in 2014, KILLING 18.
        So supposedly you piss off a cop in South Carolina, for any reason, you have a almost 50% chance of dying, if he feels threatened!
        Oh and South Carolina did arrest one trooper for shooting a unarmed black man, that was reaching for his license. Seems the state didn’t want a Ferguson. This happened a few weeks after that one, still the trooper was WRONG!

      44. LE in the USA today is making a gradual transformation into a standing army that is becoming a nuisance to the safety and well being of the public.

      45. Trigger happy pigs murdered that guy. Cowards.

      46. USE YOUR EYES, watch the video and stop buying into sensational headlines. Look at the man while he’s in the intersection around the :26 mark of this video turning around looking at the cops (before he turns around later and gets shot at (again). There is something in his left hand that’s long and thin. A golf club, sword, piece of re-bar or something similar. Any of those could prove deadly or capable of inflicting serious harm on an officer. What would you do if a crazy man turns around in a threatening manner with a golf club in his hand and starts to come at you? Try to offer him a latte? Honestly ask yourself if you’d let a crazy guy (first second of the video show him beating on a cop car and/or an officer) attack you with a golf club.

        • From 20 Feet away ? A golf club, or piece of Iron ? Sounds like a paranoid pussy to me….

          Three cops, One guy….

          Get real..

      47. MasterBlaster: please look up the “Tueller Drill” to see how from even 20 feet away an impact object and/or bladed object can very easily pose a lethal threat to people/cops. This distance (actually originally 21 feet, though recently with the decline in law enforcement training standards some have said it should be 30 feet) is and has been the accepted “danger zone” as accepted in court since around the early 1980s. Basically MasterBlaster, put your gun (if you own one) in a cop level retention holster and see how fast you can shoot a couple shots from “go” or a buzzer. Now go run 20 feet with a two or three foot long stick/blade [don’t try this at home, lol] and see how long it takes to whack or stab a ‘target.’ You’ll find that it’s about the same time… about 1.5 seconds for the average cop and average male adult. That means while the cop should be able to get one shot off, it’s right at the same time the attacker would be able to literally club a cop in the head or stab him/her. Both the attacker with “only” a club and a cop with a gun both get hurt. Consider instead of name-calling to do your research. There are plenty of bad cops out there that we need to know about, so lets not make up stories about other decent cops lest people stop listening to us altogether. 😀

        • I appreciate your perspective, but 17 .40 cal rounds does not equal a rock.

          They could have walked away – and found him later.

          If you are so afraid of your personal safety – then maybe it’s not the proper occupation for you.
