I saw this on the news this morning. Tragic for sure. The kid should not have been vandalizing the building, nor should he have run from the cops, nor should he have charged the cops once cornered. Lots of ways this could have been avoided.

This from someone who thinks Zimmerman should have been found guilty.

An acquaintance of mine was a Detroit city cop for 30 years. Hard job. Detroit. Miami Beach. It ain't Mayberry.

Sheesh. Vandalism, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer. Great kid, I'm sure.

Anyone else catch the ______ on the cover of Ebony wearing their hoodies and saying they were Trayvon?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/06/ebony-trayvon-covers-sons-photos_n_3715134.html

No [censored], you're not Trayvon. You are all wealthy sons and daughters of [censored] who are well known and most if not all of you are at times protected by "personal" security. You are not someone who faught George Zimmerman and POSSIBLY beat him up to the point where he POSSIBLY felt he had to kill or be killed.
Being black and putting on a hoodie does not make you Trayvon Martin any more than my putting on a red sweater makes me become Bobby Knight.

This unfortunate young man could have avoided this outcome at multiple times. The cops were not trying to kill the guy, only trying to catch a suspected criminal.

Crap, I'm on the same side as the admiral. It's time to re-evaluate my life.

Sounds like he deserved the death penalty without jury trial.

Ok, that's what he got. Nevermind.

Martin had been arrested or was an adjudicated delinquent? I don't recall reading that.

So, how could he have had a rap sheet?

I don't know the details of the case so I am not going to make a judgment yet but on the surface it appears to me the police clearly were trying to use the most non lethal force as possible to apprehend a criminal. That is why they used a Tazer and not night sticks or firearms.

but no doubt every tragic death involving a cop and a teen is the result of a racist killer with a badge. Ain't this broad brush thing fun!?!

Are you really hysterical enough to believe that they killed him on purpose? When you resist arrest, force is permissible. It was a one in a million outcome.
