Exactly! I despise the R’s even more than the regime. At least the regime comes out & tells us that they are killing us. The R’s play games & try to fool us all the time.
The founders would have started hanging them long ago.

Hey barry, you worthless POS. MY ancestors came here on the Mayflower. Two of MY ancestors fought in the American Revolution. Around 20 of MY ancestors fought on both sides in the late unpleasantness of 1861-65. MY ancestors also fought in every war we had since. MY father served in WWII. MY father in law flew bombing missions over europe in the same war. YOUR ancestors were savages & worshiped a pedophile. YOUR mother was a commie tramp, YOUR father was a Indonesian cult leader. YOU’RE not anywhere close to being an American, much less a natural born one. I’m proud of MY ancestors. YOU can’t even admit publicly who YOURS really are. I don’t need, nor will I accept a lecture from the likes of you. I dare you to come on my property & tell me to my face that your savages are the equivalent of the Pilgrims. I’m a published author & I cannot find the words to express my disgust for you.
Like I said, it's no surprise that the racists and bigoted a-holes like you have a problem because you are a racist and bigoted a-hole! the pilgrims were refugees fleeing religious persecution . so yes , they are like the Syrian refugees .
I guess you forgot that time the US President entertained the Taliban IN THE WHITE HOUSE and said they were the "moral equivalent of our Founding Fathers" President Ronald Reagan, didn't you? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? Wait, I keep forgetting that he white so it was okay.
Barak Obama has committed no offense. Obama is NOT a communist atheist Muslim Nazi socialist racist illegal immigrant gay homosexual transgender tyrant! People like you keep proving my point. Anyone who hates Obama truly are the biggest racists, bigots scumbags in America today.
There are a majority of “Americans” that STILL hate the fact the a black man is President of the United States, and will do whatever it takes to demean him. You are proving my point!
Calling the POTUS a POS and a fraud seems to the usual calling call for you right-wing racists and bigots like you!

“Coming within 21 feet of an officer puts him in imminent danger of being murdered. Watch YouTube videos that demonstrate the 21 foot rule.”
Sorry, I have to call BS. I understand your point, however I disagree with your training. The law says nothing about any 21 foot “rule.” Department policy is not law. A “rule” doesn’t override the US Constitution. Distance is not the deciding factor in whether a cop is in “imminent danger.” A cop cannot use deadly force if someone is not threatening him or a third party with deadly force or serious bodily harm. Merely possessing a weapon within 21 feet of a LEO doesn’t give him the right to use deadly force. If what you say is true, then I will never allow any LEO to get within 21 feet of me. Works both ways. Kinda makes traffic stops problematic doesn’t it?
 November 24, 2015 at 8:12pm
And who & where are the Benghazi survivors\witnesses that the regime had hidden away? Are any of them alive?
 November 24, 2015 at 8:10pm
Yes, and Hastings was working with Tom Clancy on…something. Breitbart, Hastings, Clancy. All working on something to expose the regime. All dead by mysterious causes.
 November 24, 2015 at 7:34pm
Well, Laquan should not have been out slashing tires, but that cop had NO valid reason to use deadly force. None. It isn’t even close. You’d think with all the crap going on, cops would learn that they aren’t going to get away with shooting people unless their life is in imminent danger. This will just give the blm crowd ammo for more of their garbage. (Uh, so to speak.)
Agreed...multiple units on site...more on the way...no rush at all to deal with this person...tasers available but not deployed...man down after 2 shots...no need for another 15...man was walking away & not towards the police...looked like he might start running.
This was a bad shooting.
I watched the video and there is very little evidence showing the officer was in the wrong. The kid was swinging the knife around and turned towards the officer then was shot. Nothing in the video is as it was described by the lying media as usual. It will be hard to convict him of anything as long as it was written in the report as it happened. The BLM needs to go find a different Roger Coleman.
I agree with you. I was looking for an attack by this guy but he was moving away. It could have been handled differently. I'm usually a defender of cops especially when there is a doubt. In this case, Chicago hang on to your hat. I don't know that i wouldn't be out on the street, were I black.
Cop Eff'd up big time....
Bet Laquan woulda like to have had the opportunity to say....."don't tase my bro"
I guess the saying goes 'don't bring a knife to a gun fight.'
When the cops behave outrageously I'm usually the first one to be all over them like white on rice.
This video however, doesn't make a very compelling case against the shooting the guy though, at least not the initial shots. You have a guy engaged in criminal activity, not stopping for the police and with a hand in his pocket. I'm not going to second guess deciding to use lethal force in that situation because there's no way for the cops to know what might be in his pocket in terms of a weapon.
The fact that he's not charging at officers really doesn't mean that much to me.
I can run away from you while firing a handgun AT you. While not a great way to be accurate, you're just as dead or wounded if I manage to hit you with one or more rounds. The way the guy keeps moving after he's on the ground it may have looked as though he was going for a gun or other unknown weapon with greater range than the knife.
Having looked up the reliant statute in Illinois, the law doesn't require premeditation for a 1st degree murder charge, but this still seems like overcharging the guy since the murder 2 statute says "(2) at the time of the killing he or she believes the circumstances to be such that, if they existed, would justify or exonerate the killing under the principles stated in Article 7 of this Code, but his or her belief is unreasonable."
There will be a whole lot of discount shopping going on starting tonight. Who needs Black Friday.
Now that black people are the enemy, thanks Obama, I don't care.
Let me play devil’s advocate here for a minute. As has been pointed out (and you all realize this happened a YEAR ago), there is a perception that cops should “more careful” using deadly force with all of the high profile shootings. I could be off on my timeline a bit but the Ferguson riots had occurred with the protestors given free reign to throw things at cops and wreak havoc with little to no police intervention.
What I see is an excited or hopped up black person being confronted by the police and deciding to do whatever he wanted like the Ferguson rioters. When you refuse to comply with lawful instructions from the police, bad things will happen to you. And, come on, what sane person not high on something would take a knife and walk down a street slashing tires? Really juvenile. But, when he was caught, what is he thinking when he CHOOSES to behave like that?
Why do the vast majority of people, when the cops show up, instinctively comply? Why do these people who resist arrest, run from the cops, fight back, etc, don’t understand that THEY are escalating the issue, compounding the problem and that they can’t possibly win? Whether I am watching Cops or Pitbulls and Parolees, they are always caught. Run from the cops, they WILL catch up to you and the minor infraction becomes serious jail time.
I can not understand, if cops shooting blacks really concerned the criminals, why would they act like this?
Agreed! Also he should not have had his left hand in his pocket how did the cop know if he had a gun? Why did he shoot him instead of taser? Why deadly force...also... 6:53 point when the boy after being shot so many times started to reach for his knife & the cop shot him AGAIN! SERIOUSLY??
The video posted here should be playing in HTML5 for everyone. If you go to the settings icon on the lower right corner you can choose the speed of the video. Choose the lowest at 0.25. Now fast forward to the 5:15 mark. This is where you see the dash cam come into view of the subject in the middle of the street.
At 5:19 you can clearly see the subject is running.
At 5:23 the subject comes in front of a police vehicle, reacts jumpy, slows down, and places his hands near his waste. His right hand seems to go inside his sweater.
At 5:25 the subject pulls out an object with his right hand and moves to the right.
At 5:27 you can see the cop's car search light reflect off a metal object on the subjects right hand.
At 5:29 two officers are seen on the left side of the subject, within 15-25 feet, the one on the far left moves forward, as does the other afterward.
At 5:30 the subject seems to keep his metal object beside him, as if trying to hide it from the officers' view.
At 5:31 the subject approaches the road's lane line and begins to walk in a straight line, no longer moving away from the officers.
At 5:32 the subject moves his right hand with the metal object out in front of him, above his waist, while still walking, and turns his head toward the officers.
At 5:33 the officer begins to shoot, just as the metal object comes to view.
Did the officer have reason to believe the metal object in the subject's hand was a firearm? There are plenty of hand size pistols made from stainless steel, so that is a possibility. As the subject kept walking with the metal object in hand, did the officers command the subject to drop the object? Was it possible that the officers were unable to determine if the weapon was a firearm or knife due to the subject holding it beside him, on the opposite side of the officers, hidden from full view?
There has to be a better reason as to why these situations are happening - job stress and threats getting to them? With the climate today, I understand why they knee jerk, yet this was overkill, literally. I don't know what's going on in their heads, but someone needs to take a closer look - and it not just the black guy or white cop.
That shooting makes that police officers shooting nothing better than ISIS........
You are aware that cops rarely go to prison for murdering Black and Brown people, right?
Laquan not only shouldn’t have been slashing tires, but like Gentle Mikey before him, walking down the center of the road. What is that about? Then watch the glint off the knife in his right hand. This is beyond stupid. Brandishing a knife in front of cops? He obviously missed my suggestion that young black men view Chris Rock’s video on how not to get shot by the cops. I agree the video doesn’t look good for the cops, but he was about a lane’s width, about 12 feet from the cop. Mortal danger from one carrying a knife is 20 feet. No audio but if he was being told to drop the knife and ignored the commands, beyond stupid. I can’t tell if he spins from being shot or is being cute and spun at the cop and he open fire. And he was on pcp. Yeah, he was going to church were he was an altar boy and going to cut up the hosts with his knife. You know like the peckerwood staring at a cop menacingly for minutes barely blinking. Really tough guy. Could someone run a rap sheet on that *****? Oh, and reserve him a drawer at the morgue for when he tries being a tough guy with the boys in the hood or when a cop has cause to arrest him and he tries more of the same while armed. Hows that 50 yrs of dem rule in Chicago working out? Who hid the video and did a dump in freezing weather before a holiday over a year later. One of Obama’s son’s Rahm Emanuel.
I just have a hard time caring. I agree the cop was wrong, and should pay for his mistake. But, I am sick to death of this culture that simply cant seem to stay on the right side of the law, or civility, or decency. They cant even accept that in all these cases, its their own actions that bring this type of convergence to a violent head. It real is simple, black people. Stop acting like trash, start obeying the law, and respecting others..... and you can make sure that no cop has to go to jail for killing you.
Thugz with badges.. Get ready for Obamas justice dept to install feds in every precinct in America, we are wintessing the beginning of a Federalized Police Force, all by design folks
Bullshit, when you disobey a police officer and refuse to drop your weapon you deserve whatever is unleashed on you. When you fools quit protecting criminals then the rest of us can relax knowing the police have our backs!
Cannot figure out why they released the video? Just send the cop to jail.
Note that this happened in 2014, it's not recent.Except for recent developments, it likely passed as a justifiable shooting. Personally, I wish the Police would aim below the belt line, for the sake of national peace. THAT would likely end people's willingness to "commit suicide by Cop" if they knew they're only going to get badly hurt. There's a point in anger where people dont care if they die, but they'll cringe at pain, and may stop being wreckless. Parentless children have to learn anger management alone. Note that Laquan pulled out his knife, opened it with two armed officers ordering him to halt, and drop his weapon, which he refused to do, and continued defiantly walking past them. The fact that the officer kicked the knife out of Laquan's hand after the shooting shows that he was armed, menacing the officers and the public, and apparently had a habit of defying anyone in authority, rather than being obedient to the laws of the land, and good conscience. Deadly resistance will be met with deadly force, whether by Police or Martial Law. If by Martial Law, you wont see any more protests on youtube or the news. They'll have beaten us.
Keep it up fools, bring on the govt. and see what they do to you. No more "kissy butt."
Sounds like mobster with a badge got caught doing what mobsters do, to those who disrespect them. Top down corruption.
 November 24, 2015 at 4:38pm
@ raven & glennpill, What makes you think obola is making these decisions? obola personally is nothing more than a typical marxist muslim radical with a smooth exterior & a penchant for young boys and hard drugs. It is all an illusion. EVERY word out of his mouth was put there for him by others who are charged with steering him through his 8 year endeavor. The regime does his thinking for him.
November 21, 2015 at 8:49am
Muttly, you did OK until you got to Gowdy. He’s been outed as being on the regime’s team. He let clinton skate on Benghazi. Just like he was ordered to do. He’s a pointy headed snake.
 November 21, 2015 at 8:42am
No one is keeping Cruz off TV. Trump is on TV more because the MSM is incredulous that there are any high profile traditional Americans left willing to stand up & make their point in an in your face way. The left always assumes that everyone thinks the way they do, & get dumbfounded and then violent when the truth appears.
 November 21, 2015 at 8:29am
I hope he meant congress.
 November 21, 2015 at 8:27am
Answer. About 530 members are complicit in the regime’s takeover, along with SCOTUS & the thousands of subversives salted throughout our government over the years. Not to mention the hundreds of muslim brotherhood operatives placed in senior positions. The road to this point has been long. It all happened on OUR watch over the last 50 years or so while we were busy earning a living. Be advised, NO ONE is coming to save us. The elections are rigged. It falls to us to save it. I won’t presume to speak for our founders, but I don’t believe they would be sitting idly by while this goes on.
 November 21, 2015 at 8:04am
You are right, obola never backs down, he doubles down. it’s gonna be a loooong year.

@ Marnin, “so you have no problem with a crony capitalist who games the system”
No. At this point we cannot afford the touchy feely you care about so much. This is the big leagues & nice guys really do finish last. In order to save the country we must have General Patton, not Mr. Rogers. We must have a real SOB to beat back the progs. We must have someone who will get into the gutter with clinton & come out on top (so to speak.) Someone who will use all the tools in the box to undo all the damage. Is Trump that guy? I’m not sure, but he’s the only one saying what I want to hear. Is Cruz the guy? Maybe. I like what he says. I just don’t think he’s tough enough to counteract the dirty tricks & fraud that’s coming. He won’t get down & dirty. He won’t punch clinton in the face, (figuratively.) Then there is his CFR connections. What about them? Isn’t that a red flag for you? If not, it should be. We have a NWO guy in right now, how’s that working out for us? Bottom line. I want the country saved. I don’t care who does it, or how he does it. just get it done. Once the country is safe, THEN we can worry about the details.
November 19, 2015 at 11:28am
@ Concerned, you are correct., but at this point we have bigger problems to deal with. I agree that none of those 3 are eligible, but in order to save the country I’m willing to forego that requirement temporarily. The NBC requirement is meaningless if we have no country left.
 November 19, 2015 at 11:13am
Go right ahead, let them all in here obola. See what happens when they strike. The people will take them out …then we’ll come for YOU. You and most of congress will be living in your bunkers for the rest of your miserable lives. Unless of course the American people dig you out. Remember Mussolini? You traitors are next!
 November 19, 2015 at 11:05am
@ banjarmon, Excellent question! Answer…the clinton State Dept. of course.
 November 18, 2015 at 10:47pm
@ Marnin, ” using the system for his own gain, not caring who he hurts along the way ”
” declared bankruptcy, paid off debtors pennies on the dollar and screwed them.”
Yes, Trump is ruthless, some say he can be unpleasant. He is streetwise & he plays to win. In short, in business he is a real SOB. Well, it will take a real SOB to beat the clinton\MSM dirty tricks-election fraud machine. Politics & plans, & positions are irrelevant in the “new” America. It matters not, if one is a Constitutional scholar, or has any experience in governing. What matters is, do you have the ability to defeat the election fraud & dirty tricks? Trump does. He wrote the book. He’ll crush clinton.
Do I have problems with him? Yes. Will he deliver on his promises? Who knows. That can be said for every candidate. I think, at least at this point, he can & will fix the economy & stop & reverse the invasion. Those are my 2 most important issues I need fixed asap.
Cruz is my second choice. BUT. There is a huge red flag with him. He’s a CFR guy & so is his wife. For those uninformed, CFR is practically ground zero for NWO. He also was in on the planning for the North American Union, for W. More NWO\open borders stuff. Troubling to say the least. I don’t trust any of them very far.
 November 18, 2015 at 10:17pm
@ Marnin, ” “I asked the other candidate on this stage to support my friends and my campaigns and he happily donated to our cause”
And trump will answer, Yes, & you all did exactly what I paid you to do for me. Thank you, you political streetwalkers.
 November 18, 2015 at 10:10pm
@ JohnFrost, ” People stayed home!”
No they didn’t. In fact, I would bet that the turnout was the biggest since 1980. Romney lost due to one thing, massive election fraud. Period.
