    So, you want us to believe that not just one but TWO lawmen have chosen to disregard every bit of training and experience they have had since day one in the academy……and would simply "wound and subdue" a fleeing subject I guess "THEY" (my little nephew had a couple of them), after 30 plus years of combined experience are unaware that it's illegal to do so in some states even if the subject is a felon and always if subject has only committed a misdemeanor.

    That's called "Assaulting a Police Officer" …….. something everyone (well….outside of shiny) knows is a FELONY. I'm sure shine is going to step in and tell us all that his two little buddies would just take their "arse whoppin's" like real men.

    Color me silly……but, it appears to me you are just trying your best to squirm out of some REALLY dumb-arsed statements.

    Lay off the Clint Eastwood movies, quit trying to be a Keyboard Ninja and ease up on the 'submit' button…….maybe some of your posts could be taken more seriously.

    Today we find out the "Justice Dept" did not want the video of the robbery released... now we all know who leads that dept.... Holder.

    Seems the truth of the situation making the shooting justified is not in Holder's interest. He wants this Police Officer's head on a platter. A rush to justice, because he took the word of a robbery suspect in how the shooting unfolded.

    They say a "Black" man can't be racist, but our current administration and the head of the Justice Dept. are proving that statement wrong. People in Power do and can have their own personal agendas.

    More dumb questions. First of all, I am not a trained LEO. If I was, I would like to think I would follow my training. One thing for sure, the criminal is not getting my gun. The second thing he is not "whipping anyone's ass"... How idiotic is that. If it was to the point that it would be called that, and there is a gun in the vicinity... Any policeman in his right mind would have reason to believe the criminal intends to kill him... What? He is going to beat up the cop under the Marquis of Queensbury rules? Give me a freaking break. Thugs don't think that way... They think like the animals that are terrorizing the whole town now.... Take what you can, however you can. Some a-hat like that starts "whipping anyones ass", he deserves what comes next.

    If we had any leadership in this country and in that state, they would have put a stop to the riots the first night as well. You bust out the windows to someones business and start stealing merchandise, lethal force should be used to put a stop to it. It would be over in 5 minutes.

    More looting last night. Those people should have been stopped by force.

    The anti-gun Democrat governor won in 2012 with 92% of the black vote. It's fair to say he's probably not quite of the calibre of Haley Barbour who, post-Katrina, said, "we don't shoot looters, but we won't prosecute anyone who does. "

    Im just saying no one will be whipping my ares, without me pulling my gun first. You blind side me and get me down, you best not let me get to my gun because I promise I will use it properly. Thats the mentality of anyone in the line of work.

    Must be the individual, not the office, that Dick who preceded Biden offered no warning shot before he Cheneyied that old man.

    Meanwhile, peaceful protesters yelled at the aggressors to stop what they were doing. About a dozen people eventually blocked off the front of the convenience store to help protect it.
    I admire these people who took a stand against violence and opportunism.
