^Dumbass motherfucker.

Kid is told to sit the fuck down, obviously he is being detained. When he gets up he begins the unfortunate series of events that follows. Cops use what they consider is neccessary force to keep the shitbird under control. Moments later kid is shot, as we have all just seen, unintentionally.

The bystanders don't help matters either, they're the sheep who think it's alright to tell the cops to fuck off whenever it suits them. They're the ones feeding the idea it's ok to say "fuck the police."

So j0sh just shut the fuck up. You're obviously one of the millions who have no fucking clue as to what their rights really are. Which is a shame. Everyone should know what the fuck they are and aren't entitled to do.

Word.

hey everyone! explain how that pig was right to shoot the kid. resisting arrest? hardly. and if i was a cop, i would quit the force if this shit was going on around me. if the dumbass cop cant tell his tazer from his gun he needs to be fired for incompetence. gimmeafreshie. i understand my rights and i want you to explain where i dont. those people saw a cop being unnecessarily rough with a kid who, one would believe responded instinctively by trying to escape. we as a society, a shitty one at that, give the police the extra power to deal with these reactions as peaceful as possible, and this one failed. so fuck him and fuck you and your shallow arguments.
9 years ago
i see both sides of this.

The kids were being arrested for a reason, and they shoulda just kept their asses on the ground and shut the fuck up.
But the cop who shot the kid is a total idiot. mistook his pistol for the tazer... someone that fucking stupid should never have been let onto the force.
9 years ago
Who said he was reaching for his taser? The cop hasn't given any interviews. In fact, rather than speak to an administrative investigative interview for the BART Police, the officer resigned and refused the interview.

Sucks for him to have been caught on camera. And there is no justification for the killing. Or Randalfag's reply button violation.
9 years ago
Killing by accident. Killing on purpose. The fella's just as dead either way. If you drive drunk you dont kill on purpose, but your ass is guilty anyways. Everyone fucks up. Everyone pays a price. The bigger the fuck-up, the bigger a price you pay. Somebody lost their life in this fuck-up. The price should be huge, but to the family, it wont be enough.

...if he sat his ass on the ground and did what he was told he would still be alive.

Being incredibly dumb and incompetent is a desirable qualification to becoming a respected pig on the force.
$25 million is a lot of Koolaid.

There's no doubt that if he'd have just sat there then he'd be alive but it's not like semi-vaguely resisting arrest warrants getting shot in the back.
9 years ago
US cops are usually dumb, usually rather sarcastic and/or arrogant, and usually overly-aggressive (half the force where I lived were ex-military and known to abuse steroids)...and they carry deadly weapons. I got arrested more times in America than I did my entire life in UK...and each time I made very sure not to give them an excuse to kill me. I'm sure that upsets one or two of you. Hehehe! :-P

Yeah good thing they broke up that fight or someone might have got hurt.

I'm bettin this was all karma at work. Suppose the victim was one of those people that pick on homeless people and mugged old ladies, everything suddenly changes, the cop is still an idiot but but the world is now better off because of it.

note to self: when shooting someone, make sure to carry a taser so I can call it an accident, and I meant to use the taser.

to the dipshit up top, I'm pretty sure extreme force is not needed when the perp is face down, with a squad of cops surrounding, there is no need to even TOUCH a taser, let alone a gun and If a cop can't feel the difference between a gun and a taser, he probably shouldn't be a cop to begin with.

no wonder he took the gun instead of the teaser. surrounded by 1 million schizophrenic motherfuckers all yelling "heey HWEEY!! HEYY Heeey!". All the bystanders should get death penalty.
9 years ago
Your ability to spot the true source of the problem is astounding.
9 years ago
whats the crack with the family of victim tho. them fucks called a press conf the day after, not to express sorrow in loss, not to condone officer, not to ask answers as to how the cop pulled gun instead of tazer, but to say give us $25mil. fuck american society and its money oriented ways
9 years ago
That's what is sad. The family screams for justice aka money and nothing gets fixed in the end.

The officers life is fucked because he killed a man on accident. The kid is fucked because he's dead.

Personally, I think when they give out these wrongful death settlements/decisions they should factor in how much the dead person was making a year (if employed) and then multiply that by sayyyyyyyy 25 years and that is your "settlement."

Not these rediculous multi-million dollar crapfests.
9 years ago
thats stupid.... where's the potential factor? say he was college student working at Mickey D's, does his family deserve 25 yrs of 6.50 an hour? factor in the pain and suffering from the faces you didnt see on t.v., like the his kids.... and how fucking retarded do you have to be to mistake a taser for a firearm, anyone that has ever held both would the difference on feel alone, not only that, but when i went thru the academy (way back when) youre taught to carry less lethal impact weapons (tazer, O.C. spray, baton) opposite of your gun, they burn that in your fuckin head for six months straight so it becomes impossible to make such a mistake... the tazer was an excuse for people like you to eat up, so you can say "well if you put it that way, the victim can hold some of the blame,"
lets say he did make the mistake of pulling out his gun,
1. anyone with firearms training knows you never put your hand on the trigger unless you plan on shooting
2. the position he was in (on his stomach) does not justify the use of a tazer
thank you, good night
9 years ago
agree with tyrizzle totallizzle
9 years ago
No the taser is just another bullshit piece of equipment put in place by everyone crying that cops shouldn't have guns in the first place.

All a good officer needs is a baton, some good old pepperspray and his gun. They also need to make the requirements of being eligible for law enforcement more strict. We have an academy just north of San Francisco in the North Bay and it's a fucking joke. It scares me on both sides of the fence to see who is being hired to "protect our streets."

Even worse is my local agency hires damn near everyone of the rejects from the already fucked up classes that graduate. We have rookies supervising rookies on graveyard shifts.

So all in all, yes, this cop was more than likely another one of those "should never have been hired in the first place" types. Any officer like you said knows to keep your gun and taser on opposite sides of your belt, it's common sense along with basic instruction. But the family itself doesn't deserve 25 million.

If you add Z's to your words does that make you more jig-like wiff soul?
9 years ago
personally, i dont think 25 mill is enough.... what if it was your kid?
9 years ago
imagine that.... your kid, killed by an unqualified officer that your city commissioned because he got into a fist fight (something kids do)..
9 years ago
What you need is a resolution. If it was my kid, I'd look at it rationally and know he put himself in the situation to begin with.

However, I would ask that the officer resign or be fired and pending a proper investigation of the whole thing, possibly face criminal charges. I wouldn't ask for millions upon millions of dollars. Maybe just enough to cover all the expenses incurred as a result of burying my kid and everything that goes with that.

I'd also use it as a platform to push for better qualified officers. The problem I've already encountered though in asking that much is almost every agency in the US is understaffed and need "bodies" to cover the streets. So they in turn take any and all able to spell their name and pass an academy.

Also funny is how people are never willing to admit they're at fault. It's ALWAYS the officer's fault. "I was standing there and the cop said 'hands on the wall' so I said 'go fuck yourself' and he pushed me down and handcuffed me...fuck the pigs man, always trying to hold the little man down."

The kid in this situation though is just as much of a dumbass as the cop. If an officer has you handcuffed and tells you to sit down...do it. Don't get up and get in his face because you'll get what's coming to you and sometimes an accident might happen and you wind up dead because you decided to "be a man." Yeah, I want to die young because I refused to listen to the most basic of commands from an officer while detained.
9 years ago
Yeah i know i run around all day worrying about my kid being gunned down by a cop.How about the thousands of bags of shit gangfuckers who drive by people and shoot at them and sometimes kill the innocents?
Id at least be happy they werent those awful fuckin pigs mannnnn
Admit it spook,your whole failure race hates the cops (at least the ones that arent cops,which other spooks call sell-outs or uncle toms)
As far as suing people..realize you peanut-brained monkey,that 25 million will come directly out of our pockets..and it will serve to cripple the police that much more.I think you are the wettest stinky pussy ive ever seen
9 years ago
freshie,stop tryin to justify the killing, accidents dont need justifying. also accidents dont need compensating either.
ty, u say that kid may have earned $25m over his life, yea he wud but his family wouldnt, also he would have paid tax on that contributing to society. these pay outs are a detrement to society. this sue the fuck outta each other coulture that the US has bread and spread around the world isnow crippling other countries. insurance rates thru the roof. money for nothing is a fallacy

Reason I never take BART into Oakland area
9 years ago
It was a accident, and one that cop will live with the rest of his life, using the tazer is the right thing to do, he just made a MAJOR screw up by not checking his firearm and letting himself get affected by the situation. I feel sorry for both the cop and the kids family. On the other side, eventhough it was a accident it was ONE that should never have happened and the cop should be dealt with accordingly
9 years ago
By being sent to prison for murder?
9 years ago
He will probably just get fired and not work in law enforcement ever again.
9 years ago
wouldnt it be manslaughter or death by gross negligence?
9 years ago
Probably he's suspended with pay until people forget about it and they can give him his medal for bravery.
9 years ago
Read the news. He quit.

I hope he got his medal first.

i was first to sign the give him a medal petition like. one less welfare mouth to feed :D

They should cuff this cop to the fire hydrant nearest the scene of his crime and leave him there overnight... and if he's still kicking in the morning, well, there's always tomorrow night..

What's really fucked is that BART Police isn't even part of Oakland PD, so when they do the investigation it's being done by other BART Police. The protest for him was today at the Fruitvale station.
9 years ago
There will be no IA investigation.
9 years ago
The problem is that there were too many whites there. If the bystanders were all black, they would have rioted and kicked the shit out of the cops before that happened. One good thing I'll say about blacks.
