    ...And the race for prominent black con-me... community leaders pushing each other out of the way of the cameras begins.

    But seriously this story is the most fucked up one yet of cops gunning down black people.

    TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – More than 100 people gathered Sunday night at the Phillips Temple in Trotwood.

    And those gathered say they’re looking for answers and change.

    It’s now been more than a month since the death of John Crawford III.

    Pastors who spoke 2 NEWS with say that as time passes more doubt is growing in the community about the fate of the investigation.

    It’s why faith leaders of all denominations, gathered their congregations together to sing for change and pray for peace.

    They’re calling for justice in the officer-involved shooting of Crawford.

    Police say they were responding to a report that a man was waving around a gun in the Beavercreek Walmart.

    Crawford later shot and died.

    Pastors and leaders say there’s clear evidence, the surveillance tape, to explain the shooting.

    They say holding back that information is hurting the community.

    “There is a pain, but we’ve been instructed. We understand there is an anger ,but we’re not going to be sinful in the situation. And so, we recognize that our assignment is to come together as one and voice our opinions about this situation,” said Pastor Paul Mitchell of the Revival Center Ministries.

    Mitchell says faith has been the main guide in how to act.

    The collective group of reverends and ministers say followers are looking for a place to voice concerns and to be consoled.

    But these men and women of faith say they have not lost sight of the big picture.

    They want the tape released and a federal investigation.

    And, they’re also preparing for whatever may be revealed, good or bad.

    “We want to be proactive. We want to be prepared for this evident we don’t want the same thing that happened in Ferguson to happen here and that’s why we think it’s important to stand up right now and let our voices be heard,” explained Mitchell.

    It’s a mission that these leaders say they’ll fulfill and each respective congregation hopes to be guided towards just action with e prayer and reflection.

    Whoa. Here we go again. Number one: why are toy guns still made to look so realistic that a cop couldn't see that it was a toy? Number two: if he was talking on his phone, he may well not have heard the cop tell him to drop the gun. Number three: why must it always be a lethal shot? Could cops not be trained to shoot at the hand holding the gun?

    This is horrible, and there is so much sadness--forget the obvious; there's also a cop who knows he killed an innocent man, on top of all the other misery.

    the gun was still in the package, and cops are trained to shoot for the center of the body mass to neutralize the threat...

    Your story says the gun was not packaged.

    And yes, that's how cops are trained. My point was, isn't it time to train them to do something different?

    That's a pretty big fuckup to ice a guy with a box under his arm. How do you go from a former Marine claiming a dude is running amok in a Wal-Mart with an AR-15 assault rifle to a guy standing there with a boxed BB gun under his arm?
