White cop and white suspect...BLM couldn't give a damn.
The video shows how hard & dangerous any officers job can become in a split second.
Something most of us will, hopefully, never have to face. Yet, like them, training & preparation help hone the vital edge needed to determine in such a moment, what is the right call or the best call, you can make at that moment.
People either forget or fail to understand, that measure of determination often comes only from endless hours of practice, preparation, training, instruction, and more. Even then, there is no guarantee of making the right call.
Sometimes its a devils dozen no matter what you do.
No, the Black Lives Matter radicals do not care; they only seek to instigate, and then play themselves in the 'poor me, I am a victim..." mode of operations.
When a black officer is involved in a shooting, or even any action the left can make or spin into 'police oppression & brutality' when none is clearly shown (case in point "hands up don't shoot" and 'he was a gentle giant' of Ferguson mindset) the officer is often labeled and Uncle Tom, or 'not authentic enough'
Hate causes more hate, and in their fanatically rabid mindset, the radicals fail to understand, push hard enough and fast enough, and most of America will strike back, hard and complete.
Threaten American citizens and/or their families, and then the criminals learn what is meant by 'hot lead' and 'assumed room temperature soon after'
That cop is still an idiot. Why is his gun drawn AND TRAINED on a guy that is apologetic, complying, AND has his hands up?
Terrible training. Send that officer back to school and make him retake the course on de-escalating situations.
I do not know if this stop was legal, lawful, or even real. I do not know if the charge was dropped or moved to prosecution or what the disposition of this charge was. It is interesting that none of this information was provided.
I do know this is a wonderful piece of psychology operation material. I do know that the various levels of the unionized law enforcement hierarchy have for the past few years, using consulting companies & PR firms, attempted to deflect, mitigate, & change public perception of what they see in video. Don’t believe your lying eyes type of thing.
In general, union operations to discredit video depicting abuse/ criminal behavior by law enforcement employees, has not worked. The primary reason why it has not worked is that cameras are ubiquitous & thuggish/ abusive/ criminal behavior by these employees is common.
Although a third world country, in the closing of the last century; this reminds me of the psychological information operations run by the Salvadoran government after their forces killed, robbed, raped the population. Instead of video it was the typical tabloid rag. However, the outcome was just the same.
Before being lambasted for siding with commies, I was there assisting in the fight against the forces of evil. Then as now, it is impossible to win when the good guys are led by & for evil purposes. Start with outlawing the unions & returning to civil policing conducted by peace officers. The streets of San Salvador are not that far away.
Seth : And that racial focus is no accident. Just ask old 6os radicals like anti-capitalist, urban terrorist, Bill Ayers who is dedicated to ' doing what he can each day to destroy capitalism - or as another radical mentored by his type more PC calls it - ' fundamentally transforming America .' Droning ' bi-racial ' Barry / Barack Obama into American politics was one of the International Left's most cunning scams .
Facts? We don't need no stinking facts.
Body cameras are an excellent thing. It's one of the very rare things I actually agree with the Regime about. It protects both the citizens as well as the officers. It'll keep the cops more honest, and protect the officers from any false claims of abuse of power. If they're short on funds maybe they can sell off some of their military hardware at auction.
While he was charged with unlawfully carrying a gun (perhaps he has a prior record), I didn't see anything that was un-Constitutional!
Stupid of him to reach for the gun, though that was a normal reaction to being asked about it (when asked about anything in their possession, most people will automatically reach to touch it when someone asks about it).
I am a strong supporter of our officers, and I commend this officer for his quick and proper reaction.
The reason this suspect is alive is that he complied with what the officer asked as compared to mouthing off or getting violent. Cop did exactly the right thing. Suspect (outside of being pretty stupid and having an arrest warrant on him) followed orders. Easy to see how this could have turned bad.
Seth: This video engenders a 50/50 response. Should he or shouldn’t he have shot the guy in the car? More relevant is going a step forward. Officers on patrol need to work in a two member team for mutual safety and support. Obviously today’s standard “solo” approach is far too dangerous, working in a far too fragmented society. I’m not the only one saying it but apparently it bears repeating, as it were.
“The times they are a changing” Dylan.
"The road ahead is long and strewn with potholes." Chester Nimitz, (the day after Pearl Harbor).
More than a good example of how officers act, this is a great example of how we should act.
Look, I know it was stupid for the guy to reach for the gun. But this officer hesitated when others would have shot him in the face.
Bottom line, I believe the video says something about "officers actions are a result of our actions" and that's true. We need to be very aware of the situation we're in. This officer showed GREAT judgement. Others, perhaps because of other experiences they've had, perhaps would not have hesitated and you could die.
From the way that guy was moving and reaching around after he came to a stop, I would have thought the officer would have been even more cautious than he was. Perhaps by having the man step out and walk to the back of the truck rather than approaching driver window.
Da po po altered that tape and planted dat gun, and dats da trueff.
Piss poor liar at that. Here come the mouth breathers and dependents though to cheer for the big eared galoot.
obama's a liar he would bomb Israel if he could get away with it. His goal is for Iran to get Nukes. He and the muslim brotherhood are one of the same
Here’s the deal in a nutshell: Iran got everything they could possibly want beyond their wildest dreams, WE got nothing but LIES! The more you hear from people who have seen the details of the ‘deal,’ the worse it gets.
If Bibi had a cruise missile launched at the White House, he (Bibi) would have my support in doing so.
Polishing a turd. You still get shit on your fingers.
Dismal failure at 'community' organizing. You don't treat at the level of president. It's legacy politics that has put billions of dollars into the hands that kill.
Tyrants always "have words for their critics"........and most of the time..........if they think they can get away with it, there might be a little something else for their critics as well!!!!
Ohhhh well. It's not like our leaders just make up laws as they go or just ignore the laws they don't like. I mean if that were to happen, then I might suggest the American people might be in danger from a leader like that. It's a good thing President Obama shows absolutely none of those tendencies. Aren't you? Yea.....I didn't think so.
I'd say the American people were foolish enough to give a tyrant control of their country for two terms. However, they were not foolish enough to give that same tyrant control of their guns. Now you know why this tyrant is so desperately trying to get them. It's a characteristic of all tyrannical leadership.

What difference does it make anyway ?

If Jeb Bush is the nominee dealer@678 won’t be the only one staying home. There are a h3ll of a lot of Conservatives that will be writing in or going third party.
@Seth --- "bout time. Remember that tired old narrative from last year ----- "Gee if we could just take both houses of congress we could..........." Yeah, right. How many times do some people have to get peed on before they realize it's not raining.?
Please God, no more of this mentality of I only voted for him because he has a chance to win. Um, you dolts has the backwards, he only has a chance to win ONLY because you vote for him.
Jeb's $114 million haul today was enabled almost entirely by Citizens United. Anyone else having second thoughts about that decision yet?
I still think it's possible there won't actually be an election or at least a winner. What motivation does Obama have to obey the rules and vacate the Presidency? He's violated every other policy and principle. What makes elections and term-limits any different that he would observe them? But from his perspective it would likely be best to use or engineer a crisis at the last minute to justify his "need" to stay in office to "maintain stability". If he does, I'm sure he will declare the decision temporary and assure everyone that he will abdicate his position once "things have stabilized"... I really hope I'm wrong, but I don't know that we'll ever see the end of this without revolution, and that doesn't seem to be an option on the table for most people. Even if I am wrong about Obama declaring himself president for life, Jeb or Hillary will just do what Obama would have wanted done anyway. Every president after this election will be increasingly corrupt, mark my words. Americans had better wake up and start preparing for Hell on Earth because it's coming little by little. I really, really, really hope I'm wrong.
I’ll be writing in a Conservative if Jeb gets the nomination. May as well vote for the Democrat if you’re going to vote for Jeb Bush. The Democrat’s can out-Democrat Bush any day of the week.
I don't get how Ted Cruz is so low on the list. I can't say I'm 100% on the Cruz ship yet, but... seriously??? Some of those names should be BELOW Cruz on that list in my opinion. I know the guy ain't perfect, but he sure seems more surefooted and able to keep a coherent thought/message than most of them.
I am looking to take back the party, not blindly vote for any republican they chooses.
A protest vote would send a message that staying home would not convey.
Politically correct campaigning is just an excuse for the Republicans to let the Democrats win.
I want to know what adze hats are selecting Jeb Bush. I don't know a single person that would consider voting for him
That’s exactly what we need. I wish people had realized this in the last two elections.
Instead of trying to beat Obama (how did that work out?) conservatives should have rallied behind a third party candidate and not been concerned with actually winning. The shake up that would be caused by a 3rd party candidate really putting up impressive numbers would have actually accomplished something. Instead, everyone wasted their vote on Romney and McCain.
The irony is, everyone who voted for Romney and McCain told those who voted for a 3rd party that those 3rd party votes were wasted votes.
Hmm, voting for the so called lesser of two evils just to tow the party line, or actually voting FOR a candidate one supports even if that candidate is a 3rd party candidate. Time to look in the mirror people, and see who has truly been the fools wasting their vote.
Ask yourself, “have I been a sheep?”
You have to understand, the poll didn't say that they wanted Bush to be the nominee, just that they think he will end up being the nominee because that's where the Repub party will direct their resources and efforts to in order to make him the one who gets it, just like it's happened in the past. We can make a difference in that process and overcome their efforts to swing the votes his way.
I will be one of them! And so will at least 5-10 million other conservatives! That's enough for the GOP to lose -- again!
I think the GOP leadership must WANT to lose! They keep making the same mistakes time and again! They must WANT to lose!
Hillary is counting on that, Seth Patriot. Just remember this day when you're complaining about how further left she's dragging the country. Take responsibility for your 3rd party vote or worse, no vote at all.
I have said it before and now have done it.
I will no longer vote for one liar over another.
That part of my ballot is blank.
Half the names on this list are liars, including bush.
Trump has not lied to me.
Niether cruz, jindal, walker, carson, pataki or for the most part paul.
The rest have lied about what they have done or stand for or repeated voted for huge government and waste.
If you vote for Jeb Bush in the primary you may have a mental disorder. But if you stay home and allow Hillary or any other Democrat to become president because Jeb Bush is the candidate, you are a traitor and an idiot.
Yeah and if that happens then we will be experiencing a reign of Hellary Clinton. Staying home or writing in is not going to fix the problem.
This "poll" has GOT to be skewed. I know of NOBODY who wants another Bush for President.
There are some strange goings-on with it.
From The Economist site:
"The Economist Newspaper Limited, trading as The Economist Group, is a multinational media company headquartered in London, United Kingdom which specializes in international business and world affairs information. Its principal activities are magazines, newspapers, conferences and market intelligence.
The Economist Group is 50% owned by Pearson PLC via The Financial Times Limited. The bulk of the remaining shares are held by individual shareholders including the Cadbury, Rothschild, Schroder, Agnelli and other family interests as well as a number of staff and former staff shareholders. The Economist Group operates as a separate and independent business."
So, now we know WHY Jeb is leading their poll.
If Bush gets the nomination, I KNOW it is fixed. My gosh, can't we do anything right anymore? Rand Paul is a nice guy, but not for President. Christy, get the heck out NOW... We are giving the the office Of PREZ to Hillary.
Both polls cited are piles of you know what.
Here's a more reliable poll and one the reflects what we see going on amongst the voters of a true constitutional and conservative bent.
And guess where Jeb Bushmeister, Mike Schmuckabee, and Chris Kringle are sitting? Out in Outan!
All of the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't get these frikkin lib neocons out of the dumpster again.
Push your push/pole trash elsewhere. I'm not buying your Bush beans today.
If the candidate isn’t Trump, Cruz, Paul, or possibly Carson I am going to vote for Clinton. The Establishment GOP are taking us the same direction only they are lying about it. Clinton will be honest about finishing off the country. Aside from that I will only vote for TEA party or Libertarian candidates. The GOP has left the conservatives and joined the progressives. I don’t need them and they don’t need my vote. Maybe 16 years of progressive leadership will wake the nation and the GOP up. The last election we had GOP senators like Hatch each giving $25K to Democrat candidates to defeat Conservative Republicans. Then the party had the nerve to ask me to donate to them again. I gave to the TEA party and I urge all of you NOT to give to the GOP but give to Conservatives or the TEA party.

Not surprised about Marc Lamont Hill. He showed his racist side when he was a regular on O’Reilly. Hard to believe he was a Professor.
