The cop looks very angry indeed!

I don't believe for one second that the victim charged at the police, that is they're excuse to limit the blame on themselves for the lack of understanding of the situation which led them to draw they're weapons and kill an accident victim, imagine there was a critically injured passenger left in the car, he was obviously running towards them for help but paranoid racist trigger happy young fools are to stupid to see this!!

We desperately need a dedicated consolidated website that keeps these police abuse incidents in permanent public record and gives us a searchable forum to discuss way to stop the militarization of police. Our arms industry is so greedy they lobby to flood our streets with weapons of war to be used against us instead of for protection. Instead of firefighting aircraft and heavy equipment, we get tanks and armored vehicles to destroy our property. Instead of public safety uniforms we get our police dressed as SS Storm troopers or gestapo agents. Instead of guarding our borders, we get drones over the entire USA. etc.etc

I do not know what is sadder. The fact that this happened or the fact I just heard about this incident in passing and had to google it. :(

Those interested in positive change, join my mentor, Hotep Kenyatta, on Facebook. A better world is possible, and police brutality is a sign that a nation needs to change...

Sadly some groups are always at the bottom and victimized. In imperial regions, this group is often those that are darker skinned. Why? Because they are easier to identify, and thus control. Humanity must move away from imperialism, racism, sexism and come together. In America, while there are some very positive attritubes to American system, the discrimination and harassment/murder of blacks and other oppressed groups has not gone away and won't until more Americans get involved in ending it ! Our world, globally, needs a total change/transformatio n ..

SA had a flourishing capitalist economy and different cultures had their own homelands. There are many dispensations of freedom. The US ideas of so called democracy is based on hippy ideas ie everyone is the same, people can decide for themselves what's right &wrong etc. It's lies and do not work anywhere in the world. But you do have some good folk that I feel sorry for.

"Charging police", if only-I'd love to charge those goons. For all the henious acts they get way with on innocent people, whether they are citizens or not.

They'd learn quick not to misjudge any situation if their paychecks were at stake. "Paid administrative leave" is only meant to keep the questioners at bay while proper motives are conjured up for Charlotte's finest. And just who is paying for these malcontents to serve evermore justice that protects TPTB? The sheeple!
