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

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.


^^^^^^

Tagging a boarded-up storefront sounds like grounds for the death penalty to me.

BTW, ~ 500 people have died after being Tased since 2001.

I've been in Miami--a scary place. You're telling me the biggest crime that Miami police have to spend their time on is some kid tagging an abandoned building?

Sociology 101

Again, to people who are thinking with their minds and not their hormones, accidental death in the line of duty and the "death penalty" are not one and the same. But don't let that take the edge off of your shrill righteous indignation.

You're right. They should have asked him nicely not to vandalize other peoples' property. When he refused, they should have affirmed his need for creative self-expression and nurtured his inner child. What the hell are they teaching at police academies these days, anyway?!?

Guess they could've shot out his kneecap when he started to run. Would've saved time, and he'd be crippled instead of dead.

Yeah, 'cause after all, he did tag a boarded-up storefront!

I see. So, spending our tax dollars cleaning up the boarded up storefront would be money better spent?

Death Penalty? Hyperbole much? And it appears to me he was not tazed for Vandalism, which of course is a crime, boarded up building or not, but for evading and then resisting an officer. I am pretty sure resisting an officer will get you AT LEAST tazed pretty much all the time no matter what you were doing.

So I have to wonder Shirley. Are we asking Cops to patrol their beat and when witnessing a crime intuitively know to ignore the ones that might turn into worse crimes and escalate to the use of force? If you have the kind of crystal ball I am sure a lot of cops would like to know where to get one.

Vandalism, evading, and resisting is only a crime in nice neighborhoods?

this was my thinking as well.

i ran (on foot) from the cops once when i was underage, carrying a large alcohol dispensing receptacle down the ally between tennessee and kentucky......no way were they catching me, but if they would have, there is no way i would have resisted and fought back
