Yea in OPEN CARRY NC where he had every right to have a gun! However doing the press conference today the pocket chief is now backtracking and admitting there is zero proof or visual/video evidence that ever pointed a gun at the cops!
a politically correct mentality will do away with us yet. this police chief is just the next one in line.
Open carry is legal in NC, as you said. But no convicted felon is allowed to possess a firearm (which this man apparently was) open carry or otherwise. Furthermore, it makes no difference if he "ever pointed a gun at the cops", only that his lack of compliance with the commands of the police, coupled with possession of a firearm and any furtive movement could and would be construed as an imminent threat, thereby justifying law enforcement responding with equal and no more than necessary force until he was not longer a threat.
What he didn't have the right to do was brandish it even if cops or the average citizen was near who could not be perceived a threat. As for the plain clothes officers on that warrant serving team the chief of police in his press conference yesterday said those officers were wearing body armor vest clearly marked with large patches that said "POLICE."
So, let's not jump to your own conclusions nor make things up.
Now yall are just going to confuse this curb cooler ebonics guy.
Yeah thanks a lot for the professional analysis there Curby.
Not as a felon, moron!
No Curbcooler....the chief said that the video available didn't have conclusive evidence of what the cops claimed happened on the scene. Bad angles for video that can't show what actually happened doesn't mean it didn't happen. He never said there was "zero proof" of evidence of him brandishing a gun.

No it’s becusee everytime he speaks o these issues you diots blame him anytime and everytime a cop is shot regardless of the motive just like you idiots did after the Fox Lake PD shootig which tuned out to be a suicide hoax.
Didn’t you diots have mormethen enough riots for over a 100 years?! Don’t you idiots riot everytime one of your sports teams lose as opposed to,actual social issue?!! Have you really already forgot about all that, where the hell do you think the “group” your referring to learned it for in the first place @sshat?! Sit down fool.
Newsflash everybody-there are no black sports fans.
Yuo, you heard it here first from the non English speaking "curbcooler."
First of all, no one has to 'learn' such destructive behavior. It's there, down deep in the uglier part of human nature. But most of us have the smarts and self control to curb those impulses. As far as 'rioting' over sports losses? How many times has that actually happened? And do tell me how many people were killed at such riots?

People the police chief Chuck Jordan even said the shooting was extremely disturbing and hard to watch and the pocie depsrtment already confirmed that they are NOT defusing the shootign as justified! As far as profiling goes someone in the audio says “he looks like a bad dude”, I wonder what they meant by that! Hmm.. This particuler cop was relenting to another call and wasn’t even there for him but decided to help when she saw him stranded in the road but got nervous when he started walking towards her. This is a man with no criminal history who wan not under arrest or resisting arrest. What exactly are we all debating here?! Stop defending badly trained/organized animalistic pocie behavior. This is just as bad as the north Miami black therapist shot a few weeks ago.
The helicopter pilot who said the motorist looked like a "Bad dude"
(Why because he's black) is the killer cops' husband,
She also is highly trained in administering medical aid, but did nothing,
She WILL be fired. Her superiors have no options

The real reason race relations are so bad is becuase a certain group try’s to defend clearly unjust shootings like this instead of denouncing it! The fact that there are so many people on here falsely saying he had a gun krmyouncould see a fun even though the pocie depsrment already confined he did not proves my point. This was a respected back preacher with no criminal history and no prior issues with the police. Infact the reason thisnus causing tension is because some of the Tulsa cops went to his church! It seems to me like the female cop jsut ones kid and there seems like there was a lot of miscommunication and disorganization on all sides. Until cops actually see a gun they have got to stop shooting happend also to a black therapist in Miami a few weeks ago.
 September 20, 2016 at 5:40pm
In case you haven’t been paying attention the pocie already confirmed that he did NOT have a gun! Ugh.
 September 20, 2016 at 5:39pm
The Locke already confirmed there was NO gun!
 September 20, 2016 at 2:59pm
There was no high speed chase you damn liar! The man had car trouble in the middlemofmthe road and was seeking police help. He had hearing issues and there was. Slot of miscommunication and disorganization the officers part aswell. This was a well respected black preacher who had no criminal history or prior issues with police in the past at all.

Well can the Sam eanilogy be applied to NRA members then especially since one jsut shot two cops in Texas a few days ago(snark)?! Let’s not be hypocritical now..

Your moronic ass obviously didn’t watch Obamas speech on new toes yesterday where he thanked and gave “PRAISE” to the law enforcement officers and first responders for stopping the attacks did you?! Well haven’t you made yourself look stupid tryigntomodh to spread a false Narrative?! Sit down fool.
Typical mindless black messiah toadie. You are the dumbass
English. Do you speak it?
Obama also said that ISIL was the JV team, If you like your Dr. You can keep your Dr., People will save $2500, There is not a smidgen of evidence..., the cops acted stupidly, Islam is a religion of peace, and then thanked the cops.
Obama is not sincere. He is a progressive scumbag and his actions for 8 years have shown it. He sympathizes to Muslims while they are hurting or killing American citizens and allowing unvetted refugees to enter our country. Now we have jihadi Muslims and young black males to worry about when doing our daily business. You can't go anywhere without wondering if one or the other will want to stab, shoot or blow someone up.
He is very insincere!!! Obvious to those who really listen to his words.He does hate America. I can see it in his eyes...and to think__his daughters are educated here...What an ungrateful human being! He's no messiah.
[-4] September 20, 2016 at 6:25am
In case your dumbass hasn’t been paying attention he came here as a kid over 25 years ago in a pre-9/11 world and vetting process you idiot! Obviously over 15 year ago Obama was NOT in office you fool. Uninformed mofo.
So you're saying he's "unique"? He's not.
There are plenty more just like him that are being imported. You know it. But you're so heavily invested in this complete failure that was your first black president that you're making excuses now.
The NRA handled it for you. You just sit there and let the men do what they have to do. Go make another video of yourself twerking or something. Make a rap video. Or go call somebody a racist. You know, the things you do best.
coolie, Yet he while maintaining his hold onto his past and becoming radicalized by fellow Americans of like thinking wounded several Americans who do not believe as he does while attempting to kill them. Got any more excuses?
Of course the angry black man has more excuses.
That is all the more reason to "not" allow Muslims to enter America.
Let me educate you Einstein. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/09/20/ten-times-in-two-years-terrorists-slipped-immigration-process/

They did NOT mention the race of the neo-confedrate loon who shot the two cops in Texas yesterday attempting to commit shicide either, care tomguess(snark)! Hey moron, unless there is a suspect on the losses they need th doubles help finding they usually don’t relase the race or age and height for that matter beucase it’s irrelevant if the suspects are dead.
It would only be relevant if they were NRA card carrying whites.
could he be Islamic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[-8] September 17, 2016 at 11:52am
Seeing how 100% of all the people and civilians shot doing this lunatics shooting rampage yesterday were black I’m guessing the usual right-wing bigots on here who post comments speculations on race whether then wishing the victims well won’t care about this story now side there were no white peoples injured right(snark)?!
I think you must have hit your head on the Curb when you fell.
So it was another black on black crime? That must be why we haven't heard from BLM, DOJ, or the white house. Wonder why they don't care about that?
[-5] September 17, 2016 at 11:48am
Welll the right-wing bloggers didn’t cover it since he was a WHITE neo-confedrate weirdo who wanted to commit suicide! It doesn’t fit there anti-BLM agenda so that’s shyntheyndont code it or the copmshotmbynthe other confedrate white man in Tennessse two weeks ago!
"suicidal" says it all. This guy was just anti cop (and parole officer)

This is exactly why I always say unless it is life threonine,regency mind your own damn business! If you live in any major city and especially a place like NYC or L.A. You will see people Parking illegally, after hours, or having driving regulations all the time. And most young people these days have the common sense not to be confrontational and actually confront someone over something like that because these days it’s so common that it’s just not with it. Sorry about what happened to the veteran but that is the politically incorrect truth.
Damn, did you even bother to read the article? Nothing happened to the veteran, it was the ahole who was beating an old man, the vet saved the old man.
[-5] September 17, 2016 at 7:43am
Yes actually you are missing them because the right-wing blogs won’t report them! Black pregnent Christian women “Deborah Pearl” shot point blank by a openly racist white man after his neo-confedrate drunk ass slammed into the back of her car! White stepfather shoots 3 year old black kid point blank inthe face for jumping on the bed!, Openly racist whites Confederate flag moron “Chad Copley” murders black man in North Carolina and ha slaps since been indicted for murder! I don’t see anynbalkcmfolks protesting because just like this case when caught the white perps will be immediately arrested unlike police officers. Need anymore more examples fool(snark)?!
What a load of crap. You would hear about it if it happened.

She wasn’t a criminal moron! The cop was the criminal and he admitted to a illegal arrest, perjury and lying on his police report! The family was paid a settlement becusse she was in jail due to the cops lies and illegal actions which is why the officer is currently in jail himself! What about all of this do you not conservatives have got,tomstopmdefdnign criminal and corrupt cops! Especially when the damn officer himself CONFESSED to his criminal behavior! What the hell is is the matter with you?! Geez.
Actually moron she was stopped for a minor traffic violation! The cop admitted to perjury and lying on his report about her assaulting, beating, and punching him when he went up to her car window(as we saw for ourselves inthe video). It was the cop who was the criminal and that’s why his asss is in jail as we speak now!
