    Does this mean black cops are trigger happy too?

    End if story. He should have done what the officer said. That man brought this on himself.

    No kidding.

    Cop: "Don't you dare move. DON'T MOVE OR I'LL KILL YOU! Don't move! Stop moving! Stop moving or I'll shoot!"

    Suspect opens up car door and exits vehicle. Gets shot. I can't work up much sympathy (unless the dead guy was deaf.)

    [I would also point out to the 'reporter' that only one officer shot him, not "the officers opened fire, killing him."]

    It was also reported on TV that the cops knew the guy who got out of the car. One of the cops had arrested him as a juvenile for shooting at a cop.

    When cops see you have a gun and you directly disobey them it matters not that you have hands in the air. When you move forward towards the officer even with hands in the air you are considered aggressive. Hands in the air can and is often a ploy to fool the cops about their intentions.

    Speculative at best. This deserves a deeper looking into by a special prosecutor just based on the fact that the shooting officer had arrested the dead man last year.

    What makes anyone think that doing just exactly what the cop is screaming at you NOT to do is a good idea????

    Reverend Al will soon to be on the scene to prove that the black officer who shot the man was somehow being influenced by the white officer.

    It does play to the systemic racism and racial prejudice of the policing system.

    That's 8 white folks too many. Seriously, if you point a firearm at law enforcement, you should get the lead poisoning.
