How is a guy piloting a helicopter able, as this guy was, to "see" that this guy was a "bad dude"?Pretty snap judgement from up above.Wonder why she had to shoot the guy after he was tased?Interesting that police were able to take a terrorist who had a gun and shot cops, into custody without killing him, but here? In Tulsa?
It's being reported that the helicopter pilot is also the shooter's husband.Why was there even a need to taser this man, let alone shoot?What was the threat?
Dave and Ducky,When you look at the video, you see a man posing no threat, walking with his back toward the police with his hands up. Even if he was not complying with what the police ordered him to do (and all we have is the police's account on this), that does not give police the right to be judge, jury, and executioner. That's what seems to have happened in this case.Meanwhile, remember that more than one domestic terrorists -- white men -- have been taken alive after slaughtering Americans, and just recently the man who planted the bombs in New YOrk.
As I await the report of the full investgation. I'm thinking the FEDs will be heavily involved in this one. They should be.No way in hell would I even consider being a police officer these days of snap judgement by armchair "experts".
The Trump response as he expresses concern about the Tulsa shooting is to call for nationwide "stop & frisk".From The Guardian:Donald Trump called for the national introduction of “stop and frisk”, the controversial police tactic ruled unconstitutional, during a town hall meant to appeal to black voters on Wednesday.“I would do stop-and-frisk. I think you have to,” said the Republican nominee, speaking to Fox News’s Sean Hannity in a special town hall on African American issues in a church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, on Wednesday. “We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well and you have to be proactive and, you know, you really help people sort of change their mind automatically, you understand, you have to have, in my opinion, I see what’s going on here, I see what’s going on in Chicago, I think stop-and-frisk.”He's a clear and present danger.
