Comically enough, this image is from 2013:

And yet you're perfectly fine with the Government being armed while everyone else who isn't you is disarmed because you're better than everyone else.

The image struck a little bit too close to home for him, so he's just lashing out in any way he can.

Lashing out?  HA!  Typical "poison the well" Grothesk.  I just pointed out the absurd nature of someone who thinks all guns ought to be taken from everyone who isn't YOU, Mr. I-hunt-pheasents-and-know-everything-about-gun-ownership.  The only way what you want is ever going to ever happen is if dickheads like this motherfucker went house to house with their rifles aimed at peaceful citizens like they were aimed at the guy murdered in the video.  You pretend to be on the murdered man's side yet you would be giddy as a school girl if these same zelot cops were putting rounds in gun owners while acting to confiscate guns YOU don't think they should own.

I've mentioned over and over that the NRA has a stranglehold on the United States.  There is no "taking guns away from people", bro.  That's a fantasy and a strawman.  

 

Let's try to stay on topic here.

R-E-L-A-X  The victim murdered by the police was white. This is back page news. If he was black, then there can be marches, protests, riots, blocked highways, fires, etc.

That fucking piece of shit! People like him want power in the first place because it gives them a hard-on and this is what happens when you reward this kind of thinking in police school.

He was about to put a couple in his fellow officer for not handling that key card effectively.

from this angle he really does look like he's reaching for something (4:19), very much like a draw move, but at the last second you can see his hand is empty, but I think the reflexes had already kicked in to pull the trigger.  So while I can see legally how he can be found not guilty, that really seems to undermine the problems with the lead up to this senario.  It would seem the police escalated the tension unnecessarily with excessive shouting.  Just seems like it could have been avoided, but hindsight is 20/20.

lol thats ri-god-damn-diculous. I mean why are they so edgy, they act as if he has a finger on a detonator about to blow up their family or a town or something.

 

And whats with the crawling towards them? Is that the way they do shit? Why wouldn't they have them both lay on their stomaches facing away from them with their hands on their back and then slowly go to them? Something hs to be more effective then this lol. These people just seem scared shitless, and I don't mean the victims.

 

And it was over a call of a gun being pointed out a window? No shots just?

 

And how is it this video is being seen and the verdict for this cop is already found not guilty, like wtf.

You are absolutely correct.  Having him crawl toward them was fucking idotic.  The correct method is to have suspects face AWAY from you, get down on their knees and cross their ankles with their hands up.  You then approach, place your foot on their foot, snap cuffs on one wrist and then the other.

 

This was the most retarded shit I've ever seen.  "Crawl toward me" my fucking ass.  Dumb!  Dumb! Dumb!

I just don't see the point of having terrified cowards work as police officers.

The guy was sobbing and crying yet the dickhead with the rifle thought he was a threat.

At least his ass was fired and he will never work in law enforcment again.  There is still a lawsuit pending for $35 million dollars, which is the least his widow and two daughters deserve for having their father taken from them.

The cop has the words "you're fucked" written on his AR15 rifle barrel and shouted at the already sobbing man that if he did one thing wrong he was toast. The cop was there to kill someone that day, it was already made up in his mind. The victim was dead already, he just didn't know it. Cop got off scott free of course.. Disgusting piece of human garbage.
