Seriously? You see the man was murdered in cold blood and you pull his police record?

Solomon

That’s to be expected of the ignorant and racist. I guess that was over kill, racist are always ignorant aren’t they?

Steve

Yeah because somebody being a multiple felon who reportedly threatened a man with a gun shortly before being shot wouldn’t have anything at all to do with why the police wound up having to shoot him. Nooooooo that couldn’t be it. This is definitely a case for Black Thugs Lives Matter.

Do you realize our good people have your ignorant statements and are public records. When you are so stupid karma will get you. When you call 911 for yourself…….j hood they say( sorry, due to your anti police post we cannot help you.

Why would you not pull his police record? It might show that he was something like a kiddie rapist. Just the kind of people BLM loves to defend!

Ghohan

Oh, here’s excerpts from the rest of his rap sheet. I’ll leave out all the “resisting arrests”, disturbance of the peace and drug offenses because hey that really isn’t a crime. So let’s start 5/29/2009 and work forward: Possession and brandishing a firearm (that means waving it around); possession of stolen things; criminal damage to property; simple battery; aggravated assault; a felony drug possession charge—-oops, wait, I forget that ain’t no crime! In 2008, another possession of stolen property, 2 more assaults, drunk in a car. More minor stuff. This was all before he was a kiddie rapist. So, yeah, “had a gun” as a felon seems to fit the BLM profile as Bill Clinton would say: you defend criminals. Call it what it is.

Steve

Cold blood? The guy was a felon who reportedly just threatened a man with a gun before reportedly trying to pull it on police. On what planet is that “in cold blood”????

Apparently you have no idea what “In Cold Blood” means. “In Cold Blood” is when someone pulls up along side you while you’re walking home from the park, rolls down their window, points a sawed off shotgun in your face and fires. “In Cold Blood” is when someone whom you are having a polite conversation with pulls a gun on you and suddenly shoots you, point blank, and while you are pleading for your life, they continue to shoot you, while you offer them all your money, car & valuable possessions, they continue to shoot you and when you ask them to let you live for your children’s sake, they continue to shoot you and while you realize you might not make it out of this situation alive, they continue to shoot and when you attempt to fight back, they empty their gun into your head and leave you to die. When you and 2 of your friends are kidnapped by gun point, taken to a remote wooded area and repeatedly beaten & gang raped by 3 assailants all night long and you watch the murder of your 2 closest friends and then your lifeless, naked, beaten and broken bloody body is shoved into the trunk of a stolen vehicle, parked at waffle house restaurant and left to rot while your assailants have a big boy breakfast sating the appetite they worked up all night long raping, torturing & killing you and your friends. All three of these horrific crimes were committed, “In Cold Blood” against myself, my father and my mother, her best friend and her then boyfriend, All of us were innocent victims that had no prior contact with our attackers.

You want to know what is NOT, “In Cold Blood”? Police Officers, whose duty it is to protect & serve the public, responding to a 911 call of a convicted felon wielding a gun, in a public place, while making deadly threats to innocent citizens, Who then refuses to follow correct CCP Protocal by declaring his firearm to police, then refusing to cooperate with police, continuing to disobey commands after being tazed, then continuing to fight the police for the taser and continuing to disobey commands while attempting to go for that tazer, again or worse the gun in his pocket.A gun, that as a convicted felon, was illegal for him to posses to begin with. Here is another word for you to learn, “neutralize”. That is what we pay & train law enforcement officers to do when a convicted felon threatens innocent members of the public with a firearm that he is not legally allowed to posses and fails to follow legal commands by police officers thus threatening the lives of every member of the public within firing range, along with the officers themselves. “Neutralize” to be clear and in simpler terms means to “kill” NOT injure or slow down.

GTFOH

Are you serious this guy was 21 then GTFOH with this bull shit. Must be a dumb ass not to this is irrelevant information

Steve

So, your point is what exactly? That it’s OK to be a multiple felon, to threaten a man with a gun and then to try to pull the gun on police, so long as one of your felonies was committed when you were 21? Is that called the Felony at 21 rule or what?

Black KKK

a black good murder by some poop butt peckerwoods this news ruin my whole week!!!!!

Solomon

Please stop with the ignorance. It’s clear that you are a White person. Black people don’t use the vernacular of speech that you are trying to demonstrate. For all interested in knowing Black KKK is really a White person.

Steve

That’s nice. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the “victim” was a multiple felon who had just threatened a man with a gun before trying to pull it on police, which was the last in a long series of stupid and anti-social decisions on his part.
