if unprovoked assault with a weapon isn't a good enough reason to respond with deadly force i'm not sure what is
oh thats right... the kid was just about to turn his life around and become a fine upstanding citizen... he was also working on a cure for cancer... but this cop gunned him down before he had a chance to shine
NO, the cop should die and be executed. HE had no right at all to defend his life from a poor little 17 year old. So it just happened to be that they were playing baseball in the hallway and as the victim was swinging the cop jumped right in front of him and stuck his head right in line of the bats pathway. The kid stood there and watched the cop pull out his gun and said " are you ok ". Cop said " stop, you hit me, bang bang. "
ITs possible it was an accident and the cop was so delirious from the blow to the head, ( who the fuck you know that gets hit in the head with a baseball bat and recovers that quick to make those type of drastic decisions). I don't know, it was just a 6ft 250lb man that swung the bat, the boy was either fat, or just didnt connect well. Cuz I know if someone gets hit in the head with a full swing, your going down and going down FAST.
one less gangsta, yea
Good cop, you get donuts.
Were I to stand witness to this, I would draw and fire with lethal intent.
I mean, someone's life was in danger. Flat out. a Firearm to protect life and limb is perfectly acceptable.
Yeah, E Shut the fuck up.
You're so inconsiderate. When you said "fine upstanding citizen" some people (sorry, Californians) could have interpreted that as "a really cool gang member" in which case your sarcasm takes on a serious face.
A serious, accurate, and thus unwelcome face. Shame on you.
Fucking off, Captain. Any other wise requests ?
the kid deserved every bit of lead pumped into him. blanco, E has a point. every time something like this happens, no matter how justified, some whiny crybaby comes in saying how the cop used too much force, cruel and unusual punishment or god knows what else to try to victimize the piece of shit. the cop saved his own life. is he supposed to just take it? pretty soon cops wont be allowed to have guns or use any kind of force, if not by law, but for fear of losing their jobs.
boosted, you cant be serious...
Fresno is a shithole. They may have killed one guy, but theres thousands more in that city that need to be shot.
i never mentioned any states or red/blue. i was making a point. and the person in the article who was whining wasnt related to the kid, just some mother who has kids in the school. in any case, if i had someone i knew do that, i wouldnt be crying about them, cause they got what they deserved. make bad decisions and you pay the consequences. just like my friend who died in a motorcycle crash 2 years ago. it sucks he died but there was no one to blame but him, hes the one who was going down the road at 160+.
Blanco... my post was in no way a slam on California... i also live in a blue state... and every single time a cop or armed citizen shoots a criminal or other type of shit bag who deserved every grain of lead they got, the news is flooded with people crying out about how good of a person the fucker was
i see this shit all the time in Connecticut... theres actual fucking marches protesting the police for half of these assholes that get shot... its ridiculous... he ran from the cops and pulled a gun on them after he crashed the stolen car he was driving while hopped up on crack... but he was such a good kid....
so no Blanco... i wasnt attacking you or your state... just venting some locally sourced frustration
What a dumbass kid. He deserved to get capped, but I'da tried to get the tazer out first and that's just me but then again it wasn't me in the situation, so I really don't know if I'd have been thinking clearly enough to grab the tazer. The cop did what he had to, I have no problem with that. If it were a 18+ year old thug of that same size, there'd be no arguements about the officer's actions and just because it happened to be a highschool student some people seem to think that makes him weaker or something.
I've seen a well-built highschool coach knocked out by a big 16 year old football player for talking shit, he even dared the kid to hit him; you can't underestimate your opponent just because of their age so that arguement that a cop shouldn't need to use lethal force on a 17 year old is just plain ignorance.
I've even seen a 7th grader knock out a highschool freshmen.
The cop sounds incompetent and may have made a rash decision. Cmon, pulls his gun and the clip falls out? dee dee dee If in fact the kid attacked the officer as the articles states, then I dont know what the kid was expecting to happen. Perhaps he wasnt in the state of mind to lead a positive lifestyle and in such a case his death is no great loss. Still, a taser would have definitely been in order if the cop were equipped and or willing to use it.
cops dont just cary around tazers most of the time. its something they take with them to a riot or keep in the car. this cop didnt expect this to happen, from the looks of the article, sounds like the kid just walked up behind him and cracked him with the bat.
Not all departments have tazers.
A baseball bat can be considered deadly force. He got hit in the head and the kid was coming at him again. What is he supposed to do sit there and get hit repeatedly? Also how does he know that his friends weren't going to jump in. We don't know exactly what went down. The media is good at doing a one sided story. I hope you guys know that cops are supposed to shoot towards the center of the mass that is a deadly threat to them.
I see no news story here, you attack a cop with a weapon and your are going to die, anyone who's played GTA knows this
I used cheat codes
