Tough Day To Be In Law Enforcement

This one makes me mad. Yeah, she had a knife but I'd rather run from her or put my own life on the line and disarm her than shoot her 5 times in front of her kids.

I wish cops were mandated to be in shape and pass certain requirements like body fat, how fast they can run, etc. Yeah, I know it's unrealistic because of supply and demand but I still wish.

If the taser didn't work, back off until another cop on hand shows up. Cops sees opportunity to justify their life was endangered (yeah, and maybe it was) but how would it have turned out if the cops showed up prepared to do all they could to not shoot her 5 times.

Life is precious.

Well done video showing 3 different camera angles with some audio as well.

My thoughts: 1st. Make jaywalking legal. Everyone does it already anyway. Don't **** with people for jaywalking.
2nd. Don't get belligerent with cops and follow their instructions and you probably don't get shot. Certainly don't grab their gun.

Imo the shooting was justified but the cops should have never ****ed with the dude in the first place and jaywalking is a stupid law. Btw my brother got a citation for jaywalking in Seattle. He didn't fight the cops though or grab their gun. He took the ticket and paid the fine and was pissed about it.

"Protect and serve" has turned into "let's look for law breakers so we can go hunting."

From what I read, this guy didn't even jaywalk. Even if he did, the police should make the assessment is it worth approaching? If so, let's educate the guy (not confront) on why jaywalking can be dangerous.

****ing guys were looking for someone to flex their authority on. A guy is dead because of it.


Jaywalking...

People have a fight or flight instinct. For all we know he was trying to get out of a tackle and grabbed something for leverage.

I guarantee if the cops were cool and caring, this would never had happened. They shot him cause he reached for their gun, they killed him because they didn't know how to protect and serve.

Example 1,385,746,938 of our “finest” at work this year. Oof


we really really really need to raise the standards for being a police officer in this country. You can’t have the dumbest in our society have some of the most powerful positions.

pop quiz, if this monster had been black or brown and was shooting up white businesses, would he be alive today? Would our “finest” be making excuses for him by saying he was “having a really bad day?” It’s just unreal how badly these guys **** up and yet our society idolizes them so much. No other industry in America gets away with so much ****

I don't get what point you're trying to make here. This isn't on police officers. I didn't watch the video because twitter vids don't play unless I log in and I don't need or want to have anything to do with twitter.

Sounds like he might have been blowing all his money getting handies at these places. But is also could have just been because they were asian I guess. Either way some guy in Utah Valley probably knows a lot less than the cops that arrested and interviewed him. But maybe you are right.

It's not like there haven't been a few black mass murderers getting arrested instead of killed by the cops the last month or two. Or you are just bitching to bitch.
