(cops) man at least help the dude out as he sits there dying.. absolutely mind blowing.

the lack of empathy is shocking, yet hardly unexpected.

I saw this on facebook about 14 hours ago. It's absolutely ridiculous. A guy gets pulled over in his car with his partner and child for a traffic stop. Somehow it spirals into him getting shot 4 times at close range in front of his child. Rogue cops being judge, jury, and executioners in a matter of minutes and never facing any repercussions for their actions. No wonder there is so much outrage in the US!!!

ya exactly man.. it's just tragic. this shit happens all of the time. various minority communities have been "complaining about it" ever since I can remember, but now with camera phones and such, we are seeing it. Imagine how much shit went down before camera phones? i don't even want to imagine it.

there's never any justice for these kinds of shootings.. at some point you expect tension/anger to REALLY bubble over. These cops actions are putting everyone's lives at risk.

man it's just crazy in usa.. other countries have so many problems that I, as an American, will most likely never experience; for that i'm lucky.. but we have one thing most countries don't; a mass incarceration system with ROIDED up/possibly racist/possibly psychotic rambo cops. I've had some great encounters with police, some really good people.. but i've also had some extremely bad encounters with them, where myself/friends were threatened, or I actually feared for my life. And in those situations, it's literally just psychos power tripping and imposing their authority on you, almost as if they masturbate to it when they get home.

i just don't understand how any of those cops in that video, could be "good people". To shoot, and wait for the person to die, while his gf & his gf's daughter are in the car, is just disgusting.

Even if the dude was some criminal and tried to pull the gun on them.. help the guy wtf?

The NRA should be outraged at this, as should mattyg over here. The guy was exercising his 2nd amendment right, had a license to carry a weapon, and he's shot dead by a government official. I don't hear any outrage.

PS. Your cops are absolutely ridiculous. "To protect and to serve" should be the nr 1 joke in America (the nr 1 BAD joke in America).

anyone who argues that racism is over in this country, or that the way we police black people isn't racist, can go fuck themselves.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

That's pretty horrible. I hope the cops have body cameras to fill in before the shooting so that they can't just dismiss this is a "justified shooting".
