    Guilty for holding the gun sideways.

    But, don't run from cops. They got guns.

    Pretty cut and dry. Yes or no, is it protocol to open fire on a car fleeing from a traffic stop?

    it would take a great deal of energy to go on a pursuit of 6 black teens...it is far more practical to shoot into a car of unarmed teens

    One that has absolutely no respect for the weapon. Or human life.

    Unfortunately, others feel the same way; until it hits close to home, then they become activists.

    Yeah I have no fear of it hitting close to home. If my family or friends are stopped by the cops we listen and obey and we go home with a ticket. But I sure the video is the whole story and nothing more to it.

    The whole story is they weren't armed and were fleeing. Last I checked gunfire wasn't allowed in such circumstances. :dontknow:

    Take one quick look at that website. Looks like anti-cop anti gov. Alex Jones type site. Not going to believe much from places like that.

    After the shooting, police discovered that the car the teenagers were driving was stolen. So I'm going to take a wild guess and say the teens where moving around in that car looking like they were going for something but most likely trying to make a run for it. And the cop shot at the car.

    No problem with that at all. Hard to have sympathy for people stealing a car and then getting shot in the process.

    There are REAL cases of bullshit by the cops not every video shows the complete story. Sounds very similar to that story a couple months ago where a white teen stole a car and got shot to death at the end of the chase and was unarmed.

    the driver was able to prove that he had no knowledge of the status of the car...can a slow moving car be a threat to public safety: yes, in this case: no

    With all due respect, you're wrong about that. Carjacking isn't an offense punishable by death. Neither is eluding police. Standing there emptying a bunch of shots into a car full of kids isn't something we should ever want our police doing. Their job is not to punish. In order for our justice system to be worth a shit, cops simply cannot keep doing this stuff. They got away with it before because no cameras were on them. Now they're everywhere.
