    DISGUSTING.

    Now let's see how long it takes the rude right to start blaming this kid for being shot 16 times. Right after that, they will further deflect by trying to bring up Black on Black crime. Some might even try to use the Donald Trump neo-Nazi statistics.

    Continues to highlight that there is systemically something wrong in police forces across this country.

    That's horrendous footage and the cop needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. However the OP is broad brushing police across the nation, and has a penchant to blame whites. If the races were reversed in this scenario there would be no thread on it whatsoever.

    The OP broadbrushed police forces across the nation because there is systemic wrong amongst police forces across the nation be the cops black, white , purple or green. But the we're just not hearing too much about black officers killing white unarmed people. Or Hispanic officers shooting unarmed fleeing white people in the back.

    So get over yourself. The races aren't reversed. they are what they are and the only argument you got is the equivalent of what FOX News tries to do: blame it on everything except the folks pulling the trigger.

    It wouldn't have taken a 12 year old 400 days to look at that video and press charges.

    But then again, when prosecutors are in bed with the police, justice misses a beat in the due process two-step.

    Oh I believe there was a great injustice done and that officer should have been arrested the day of the incident. But you're incorrect in saying that the races aren't reversed, it is that you concentrate on the ones the media concentrates upon. There are plenty of black on white crimes the media sweeps under the rug, and you, as the media have become thoroughly indoctrinated with political correctness and its agenda. As stated you would not have placed this thread here were the races reversed.

    Also, I blamed the cop from the beginning so your accusation that everything is blamed but the one who pulled the trigger is baseless, implying a Fox news objective on my part, are frankly lies. Try being honest instead of reacting emotionally.

    By the way, I don't watch Fox, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC or any other news source. You might garner a huge change in your demeanor and walk if you simply turned off the indoctrination station, and got into the Scriptures much more often. :)

    They aren't reversed. I concentrate on the ones that are horrendous and show a systemic wrong in the policing system that disproportionately targets and kills black people. So if you're seeing the same thing from white officers against white people, please share. If you're seeing the same thing from black cops against white people, please share. Otherwise you're just talking to be contrary to what is a real problem in police forces across this country.
    NOTICE we're talking about killings committed by POLICE OFFICERS and you're deflecting and trying to talk about crimes committed by others. FOCUS on the topic at hand.

    You're just like the FOX News folks who find one black person to say what they want and suddenly they feel vindicated in their stance even though 98.9% of Blacks say the opposite of what the black person they found says. This rarity you blame the cop doesn't dismiss the regularity ( I'm profiling some of y'all ) with which some of you do blame the dead person.

    By the way, you don't have to watch them to repeat the talking points. They get repeated enough and QUOTED that if you're online on a message board or social media or the internet period, you'll get the talking points because you get your news from a source that thinks like you and says what you want to hear.

    The young man behaved like an idiot, but I didn't see any reason for him to be shot.

    I don't see the cop getting out of this one.

    We had a young man in our town who fled police on foot and was climbing a fence to get away. He posed no threat to the police and was shot in the back, dead.

    Carpro, according to some reports, the guy was mentally challenged, not that I know if the officers were aware of that possibility. But this guy is on the ground and his hand is moving/shaking like I've often seen autistic kids move their hands. And then you see another bullet hit him and he stops moving. This was an election year . I'm guessing that's what took 400 days.

    The superintendent said

    So they were already prepared for this day for some time and probably wouldn't have released the video if the judge hadn't ordered it. So Chicagoans need to ask themselves why their mayor and police superintendent working with the prosecutors have had this video release delayed

    I believe you are right. Election year politics. There is no one more into taking political advantage than Rahm Emanuel.

    Chicago is a strange city. It is totally controlled by the Democrats. But it is also nearly bankrupt and headed the way of Detroit. Plenty of Chicagoans are moving to Indianapolis but there are only low-paying jobs here. Most Chicagoans hate Indiana.

    Chicago is so dangerous that I am afraid to go there. The Chicago Police force has always had a reputation for brutality. I am surprised that this cop is still alive. I think that Chicago has already offered the family $5,000,000 but they seem to be holding out for more. If convicted, the cop should get the death penalty.

    The Democrats should speed up this process in Chicago and settle this case immediately.

    Yeah, Rahm made sure this was sealed up until after he was reelected. Chicago political and union corruption go hand in hand.
