Look at pictures (on the Internet) of the pistol that Scott possessed. The hammer is back and the safety is off. It was ready to shoot. It was not the way someone would carry a pistol unless they wanted it ready to shoot. The police were in danger and the shoot was proper.

What a stupid thing to say! He should have said, “He just assaulted me!” That is why these criminals have no fear in violently protesting, there are never any ramifications. Sad!

If they have photos, then the racist protesters need to be arrested and charged with attempted mayhem and murder. Further, any of the looters need to be charged. We cannot tolerate lawlessness from these criminals!

This is a hate crime, pure and simple. Too bad the victim was not armed! Think Obama will comment on the black racism towards whites? I don’t think so!
DOJ has no interest when the races are reversed, which is often the case. There will be no prosecution, even of assault, in this case.

Unless there is something that only the police observed when this man was shot, then the officer will be prosecuted and convicted of manslaughter. The officer never saw a weapon but shot because the man may have been reaching for something. Not good enough (I am a retired cop). She had to see something. Some of these shootings are the result of scared officers who shoot too soon. Of course, in every one of these shootings, the person shot does not obey the police.
All the calls to 911 that are available for all to hear state the dude is on drugs in the middle of the road. Numerous calls. The cop who shot him was a high up officer working there for a long time and trains officers on drugs etc. she knew he was high.

Libs decide issues based upon how they feel and not on what their brain tells them is correct. Here we have the SD spokesman stating that there will be mistakes in vetting and (based upon past instances) that means that at least some of these folks are terrorists. That means that some Americans may die due to vetting mistakes but the Administration does not care. They are happy because it FEELS good to admit Syrian refugees. I think at least five unvetted families should live with the Obamas and another two families with the Clintons.

If Kasich felt he could not support any of the Republican candidates, then he should have never signed the pledge to support the nominee. Failing to support the nominee after signing a pledge to do so, makes him a liar, plain and simple!

Right, and that is the reason they are now looking for an Afghani muslim!

Why is it that libs want to distance themselves from the word “Terrorism”? The Mayor and Gov above, do not want to even imagine that a terrorist organization maybe even peripherally involved in the bombings. They are almost delusional!

A pressure cooker bomb is right out of the Islamist terrorists’ play book. Just the same as the Boston bombings. Why can’t the authorities be honest about these events?
And the Governments response and the media coverage of no evidence of terrorism is right out of the liberals governments in Europe's play book...

The authorities are sure trying hard not to refer to any of the recent acts of terrorism as “Terrorism”. They wiggle all around the facts to try and follow BO’s lead on giving Islam a pass. It is really pretty dishonest IMHO.
If it was a real pistol, and the cop hesitates, then the cop is dead. Someone needs to educate these kids and their parents that you do not point a real looking pistol at a cop. Cops are not all seeing and do not know a real pistol from a look-a-like BB gun. The cop did nothing wrong! Read the details of the incident and get real!
“There is something wrong in this country, and it is bringing its epidemic to our city streets,” Ginther said Thursday. “And a 13-year-old is dead in the city of Columbus because of our obsession with guns and violence.”
How about saying that the little wanna be gang banger brought this upon himself and not blame guns or the police!

With that name, I wonder what religion the suspects was? This shows all the doubters what a threat a man with a knife is to a police officer. I am glad the officers survived the vicious attack!
Oh, believe me, somebody will still spin it to be whitey's fault.

Millionaire football players who believe they are oppressed? You cannot make this **** up!
Listen if inner city folks want to get out of the ghetto and into the main stream there are a few things that need to happen. They need to remove the chip on their shoulders. They need to stop tattooing every part of their bodies (employers do not like viable body art). They need to practice acceptable English (employer want employees who can communicate with the general public). They need to bring back fathers into the family unit. Lastly, they need to move all families off welfare and back into the work force.
Folks like these football players who are protesting, need to recognize the the vast majority of cities where blacks are marginalized have been run by Democrats for decades.
No, they don't think THEY are oppressed but rather certain parts of society who, by virtue of their refusal to have self-respect or to respect others, are poor and uneducated (both situations again caused by their own chosen ignorance). I do not see where Krapinneck, the female(??) soccer player or this genius have given any of their millions to "help fight social injustice". It's the same with the idiot hollyweird "stars" - they talk and talk but don't do a damn thing to help anybody themselves!!!

I think Beck is going over to the dark side.

That constitutes arson with damage over $1,000, a felony. The school needs to turn this over to the police and the victim needs to recover damages after the suspect is charged.
And the victim needs to get a restraining order.. This perp obviously has serious mental issues

And this is not racist? Why? If their was a white dormitory for the exact same reasons, it would be front page news for a month.

Is he delusional? Chicago has the most onerous gun laws in the country. It is just that the bad guys don’t obey the laws and the government does not put folks away for violating the laws. We do not need more laws we need effective enforcement of the current gun laws.
