Quote from: p1tchblack on April 15, 2021, 05:56:31 AMI know it wasn't intentional, but there are a lot of people who would see shooting him as ok for trying to run or because getting into the car supposedly posed a threat to the officer's life.
Quote from: Possum on April 15, 2021, 06:28:28 AMOnce he is in his car, the suspect now could have access to weapons, even the car can become a weapon. Now, more people could be at risk. That is why the police was trying to taser him. Maybe what we need is an educational program taught in schools, say the third grade, where students are taught the proper way to respond to the police. The teacher could make a game, police says "raise your hands" and the students can practice raising their hands. Just think of all the lives that could be saved. Of course, not breaking the law could also be taught but with liberal politicians encouraging crime such as looting and burning of buildings, that probably will not happen.
Quote from: supsalemgr on April 15, 2021, 03:16:17 AMSo what actions should law enforcement take when a person resists arrest?

Quote from: p1tchblack on April 15, 2021, 05:37:12 AMI'm not defending criminals. I don't condone running from police, assaulting police or not obeying orders, but to say that doing any of those things automatically gives the government the right to kill you is not ok.
Quote from: Pop Daddy on April 15, 2021, 11:22:00 AMWell count me as one of them. I would have shot the piece of shit square between the eyes had it been me there. He was a known piece of shit and the police knew who they were dealing with. The stupid piece of shit got what was long overdue. His mother knew he was a piece of shit along with all his friends. He was facing serious time in prison and he knew it. Why do you think he skipped on his trail date? And no, it wasn't because he had mid terms at his medical school.I guess you've never been around scum bag criminals. They will lie, steal, cheat and take you out in a heartbeat if the need arises. Career thugs don't change until they are caught and punished one way or the other. This time this particular piece of shit got what was coming his way. Two weeks from now it could have been one of the "brothers" in his ghetto taking him out in a drive by or just gang violence.The piece of shit knew the woman he was attempting to rob. That's the thug life. The worthless dregs of society have no ethics. He had been out on bail, he was ordered to not have any weapons and he's wanted on a weapons charge, along with others. Good riddance.Look at the upside, he gave all his hood animal buddies the excuse they needed to go and loot a new pair of Nike's. Win/win. The animals got new shoes, a couple cases of Colt 45 Malt Liquor and the world has one less turd walking around in search of another victim. Gotta love libtards with their all lives matter bullshit, unless of course they are talking about killing a baby, then it's a choice not a life.
Quote from: p1tchblack on April 15, 2021, 03:42:46 AMThe action of tasing him, especially if the car was on and in gear, is risky. If the car wasn't running, tasing is the correct action. If he still manages to get free of police and drive away - let him. Call for back up, track him down, stop him and arrest him. Shooting and killing him is not a correct action.
Quote from: Sick Of Silence on April 15, 2021, 11:44:42 AMI agree.We, as civilized humans, are soft on crime. There should not be a thing as career criminals.
Quote from: RV on April 15, 2021, 10:42:04 AMIf the officer is murdered (i.e. ran over, beaten, shot, etc.) and dead is it "reasonable" to use lethal force then?
Quote from: Billy's bayonet on April 15, 2021, 10:53:40 PMThe idea is to use force to prevent onesself or others being murdered, injured or assaulted.https://www.policetest.info/force-continuum
Quote from: Sick Of Silence on April 15, 2021, 11:39:44 AMYes you are.That's ultimately what you and every leftist is doing within this conversation: defund, disable, and disrespect police; act like a carrer thug criminal who just committed another crime is innocent and put them on a pedestal; burn, murder, loot, and commit crimes in the process of "protesting".
Quote from: p1tchblack on April 16, 2021, 12:56:38 AMThe suspect could have access to a weapon... or he could not. The car could be used as a weapon... or it could not.If a government employee is going to end someone's life, I think there should be based on something more than "could", because you "could" find reason to kill people in virtually any situation. There's the Daniel Shaver incident. Dillon... Taylor? I don't recall his last name.I know the shooting wasn't intentional, but there are plenty of people (I'd bet on this forum) who honestly believe it's ok for police to kill people simply for not obeying commands or fleeing, despite the fact that this is no threat on the life of the officer. I don't think that's ok.
Quote from: p1tchblack on April 16, 2021, 12:58:52 AMWow... that is one gigantic straw man!
