i'm sure there are plenty of situations where
1) cops waste a dude holding a gun
2) cops say he pointed it at them
3) it wasn't pointing at them, but they acted pre-emptively so they go home at night.
Problem is, they did it under video camera this time. And IF IF IF he indeed pointed the gun at them - the video would have been released on day one lol.
You always know when the police are 100% legal in a shoot - because they release that tape VERY fast to pacify the public. When people are holding rallies - JUST TO SEE VIDEO OF THE SHOOTING - and their report says it was a 100% clean shoot - I tend to think video doesn't match statement.
The family is demanding immediate release of the tape, and gawker quote the family's attorney as saying the tape reveals the cops showed up, and shot on sight.
Still can't understand why the NRA isn't making a ruckus about cops shooting a man for carrying in an open carry state?
Unless of course they think open carry legislation doesn't apply in this particular case. After all, the man that was shot was an UNarmed Black man, and it wasn't a real gun. Ya, that must be it!
The Constitution is for all intents & purposes DOA and certainly does not specify any right to inspect store merchandise. Inspecting store merchandise before you pay for it, ...that's an executable offence.
