Cops get to claim "fear for their lives" when they stand in front of a vehicle driving towards them, instead of taking one step to the side. And of course they get to "finish the job", shooting people in the back while they run away, or in this case in the back of the head as they drive away. Meanwhile if you or I live in a state with the "duty to retreat" laws, if someone breaks into your house, you are suppossed to run out the back door and call the cops instead of defending your home and yourself.

Uh, how about NOT kill people that are running away. I never said I support the dude. I just think that cops should use deadly force as a last resort or use the amount of force equal to the threat or resistance, you know the shit that is spelled out in their policies and that should be common sense. Or are you suggesting we should have cops like Judge Dredd? Judge Jury and executioner! The police had an ARREST warrant, NOT a warrant to kill the dude!

For real dude, think about the position you are suggesting, think real hard about it! We have a system of justice that requires police and the institution to be held to a high standard to ensure the law applies equally to all, I for one DO NOT want a police force that is above the law, held to low standards, and that have no regard for human life. If they decide to take the "law" into their own hands and execute a person, they better have a very good god damn reason to and not just some arbitrary abstract, "well I FELT my life was threatened because I was standing near a vehicle that MIGHT have ran someone over in the neighbors yard" even though no one was in front of the vehicle driving AWAY from them, so its OK to shoot the dude in the back of his head as he was driving away from them. Its a slippery slope, one that I dont want to see happening more often than it already is! 

 

If you are cool with cops having an open season on killing people all willy nilly then perhaps you might want to move to a country where its more expectable, perhaps North Korea, you may fit in right nicely there.
