    A coupla things stand out here..Who knew there are blacks in Phoenix and the article title says "unarmed" yet a gun was found


    Cop fatally shoots unarmed black man in Phoenix
    By Reuters

    December 5, 2014 | 9:50am

    A Phoenix police officer shot to death an unarmed black man during a struggle and authorities said the officer believed the individual had a gun, in the latest fatal incident amid national turmoil over the policing of black communities.

    On Thursday night, some 200 demonstrators protested against the killing of 34-year-old Rumain Brisbon, marching to Phoenix police headquarters and blocking streets, broadcaster CBS5 reported.

    The Phoenix Police Department said Brisbon was sitting in an SUV outside a convenience store on Tuesday evening, and two witnesses told the officer the occupants of the vehicle were selling drugs.

    With police forces across the country under increased scrutiny over killing unarmed black men, the Phoenix police said in a statement that their officer called for backup, and then saw Brisbon appear to remove something from the car’s back seat.

    It said the officer, a seven-year veteran of the department, gave him several commands to show his hands, before Brisbon “placed one or both hands in his waistband area” and fled.

    The officer chased and caught up with him, it said, and during a struggle, the policeman believed he felt the handle of a gun while holding Brisbon’s hand in his pocket.

    “The officer gave the suspect several commands to get on the ground but he refused to comply, yelling profanities at the officer,” the police department said in a statement issued Wednesday.

    At that point, both men stumbled into an opened apartment unit, it said, adding that the officer was unable to keep a grip on the suspect’s hand.

    “Fearing Brisbon had a gun in his pocket the officer fired two rounds striking Brisbon in the torso,” it said.

    The police department said backup officers arrived after the shooting, and while they and members of the fire department treated Brisbon, he was pronounced dead at the scene.


    Police said Brisbon was carrying oxycodone pills, and that a semi-automatic handgun and a jar of what is believed to be marijuana were found in the SUV. The 30-year-old officer was not injured, police added in the statement.


    The shooting in Phoenix comes at a time of tension between law enforcement officers and the communities in which they operate. Two grand jury decisions not to indict officers who killed unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York City have triggered protests throughout the United States.

    How is an "unarmed" black man in possession of a semi-automatic handgun?


    Dammit. Why can't the police just leave the drug dealers alone while they're fighting with them?


    Will this felon be elevated to angel status within the black community, too?

    All this makes one wonder. Does the government prefer we fight each other so that we ignore them?

    He wasn't in possession of the gun at the time he was shot. The gun was in the back seat of his truck. He had run from his truck. This death has more to do with the failed War on Drugs than anything else, but all you guys see is a black dude being killed, so its celebration time here at the shed.

    yeah, you have it all figured out. :jj:

    the cops should learn MMA so they don't have to shoot out of control criminal assholes. you know why there are so many stories about out of control black people? it's because there are so many of them.
    when white scum gets killed, we're just as happy. :)

    What happened to just comply?
    Why give an officer an excuse to use deadly force?
    You run you are usually guilty. You run and you are assumed armed until you are cuffed and searched.
    Teach that to your kids.

    The new mantra is, if youre anti-crime, youre anti-black. Theyre stipulating the blaeck are more likely to be violent criminals. Isnt that racist? :lmao:

    Reading comprehension is obviously not your friend. At no point did I say the shooting was unjustified, I was merely pointing out that in fact, he was unarmed at the time he was shot.

    He should have complied, and upon investigation, I'm sure the shooting will be deemed justified. I'm merely qualifying what made him unarmed. I'm inferring by the news article that when he reached into the back of the truck, it was to dump the gun and weed, and then he took off. I'm sure he was a scum bag drug dealer, but this whole incident shows the failure of the war on drugs, nothing else. It's like the guy who died from an ashtma attack in NYC cuz he was selling cigarettes without tax stamps. The punishment does not fit the crime, and it's not the criminals or cops fault, its the fucked up system we've created.

    You're right, from a site that plays a game called "Guess the Race", I'm completely out of line thinking there might be a slight racial bias here. My bad.

    War on drugs??
    :facepalm:
    If/when drugs are legal the government will increase the war on the illegal stuff....see Eric Garner. Legal drugs will be so taxed and surcharged the illegal market will be king.

    Eric Garner killed Eric Garner.
    Most people outraged by the police using force to get the fat fuck cuffed have never witnessed any type of arrest let alone a giant guy resisting arrest. Gluten and deep fried foods killed that fat fuck.
