Where exactly do you get your "facts" that they are no longer taught to think or reason?
Yes they are, because if you wait to analyze the situation too long you won't be going home to your family. When a suspect dies, we react with investigations and those who willfully cause death to a suspect without good cause are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as well they should.
That said, no one, no officer is required take a chance of dying when a citizen challenges him or her. There is often no time for second thoughts or analyzing a perp's intentions when they reach into a pocket or waist band and raise that hand up towards an officer.

Cops are no longer taught to think or to reason, they are taught to react and gain immediate control of the situation even if it means by force. Look it up.

Isn’t it sad that people are voting your comment down? I guess they’re like sharks with blood in the water, they want more, More, MORE! Savages.

Cops don’t care if you’re mentally deranged. Comply or die.

We should evacuate all the white folks along with the 17 black republicans from Charlotte and pop a nuke.

All the bootlicking, “cops never do wrong” fanboys on here disagree. Just read their supportive comments for a scared little girl with a badge who panicked and murdered a man. Time for paid vacation baby!

We already have a police state, wise up.

Wait, a Mormon quoting Scripture from the one and only true Word of God? Nice try Mormon boy, it’s time for you and the Mormon boy Beck to go away. Don’t go away mad, just go away.
The rabid atheists for lyin Donnie don't help the cause actually. Those were the first noted train jumpers followed by the Caitlyns. Unless recent history has also been rewritten too. You should be fine with the Burnie offal. Right? Peas and carrots and liars and takers.
This is why Mormons don't align themselves with Trump supporters FYI.. You attack them for their religion, tell them to "go away" and then complain they aren't aligning with guys like Trump.
What you got against Bible quotes, homie?

Race relations are Not like they were in the 50′s. In the 50′s they knew where their place was, now days they don’t.

I’m so sick of hearing “All cops aren’t bad, most are good.” The bad cop wasn’t just the moron who faked this crap, it was everyone of them who also witnessed it and did nothing to stop it or correct it. It’s called the Thin Blue Line. Nothing would have been done about this was it not for the video, got it?

How is anything in this article newsworthy? Everything he owned was LEGAL. Blaze, you are looking more and more like Huffpo.
Then I guess it could not be called a hate crime. Just part of the game.
red head.... fair game, cause dey irish.....
sorry, but this level of racist hatred that's been a cultural undercurrent is going to crop up EVERYWHERE, and the football field is no exception.
That rises to the level of the assault by any legal definition known to man. Charges should be pressed and the offending youngster prosecuted under the law.
Hate crime! Where's Jessie Jacka$$ when you need him? Oh wait, this isn't a hate crime, the guy was white, so he deserved it, probably in the one percent.
You could tell #73 was thinking about going after #1 for a moment but let it go quickly albeit reluctantly.
*imagines thought process*
'I better be careful, im already seen as inhibiting the success of a young black man. If I am to expect any recourse I better hold open my hands so he and people can clearly see I mean him no retribution because im at a disadvantage of taking a hook without my helmet on and getting mounted and pummeled on the field in my current position should a conflict continue.'
Remember you are holding five fingers, not four.
This is Obama's fundamentally transformed Amerika where blacks attack whites daily and it's no big deal. The weaponized media won't bring up the fact that the victim is white and the perp is black like they would if it was the other way around. I keep hearing about how blacks couldn't walk down the street in Alabama in the 1890s, but yet it's exactly like that nowadays-only it's white who can't walk down the streets and it's pretty much everywhere, not just one little area.
Just saying, one team was entirely black and one team was entirely white. Guess which team the football terrorist was on when he attacked another person who was in a defenseless position? If you said the team the racist group "black lives matter" would cheer for you would be correct!!
Do you think the racist group "black lives matter" is getting its message through to the teenagers? Do you think this racist group is turning black teenagers into racist thugs? I say "YES" most certainly!!
I blame Obama, Holder, Sharpton and anyone supporting black lives matter for the resurgence of racism in this country. ANY race problems rest squarely on their shoulders.

Mike Rowe missed the boat on this one. He’s a product of our government education centers that teach you “what” to think, not “how” to think. They use to call it critical thinking. Sad.

Silly little citizen, laws apply to we little people (or serfs), not to the Popo.
