Congrats A&M. You are the better team. If we don't make major corrections we will finish 4-8. The only good thing is I'm heading on vacation tomorrow. So I don't have to thunk about this game all week.

Eliminate the threat?

So, are you saying they are trained to kill, or eliminate the threat?
You can eliminate a threat without killing...just saying.

I'm pretty sure officers aren't trained to kill. That type of procedure just opens up police departments to too many lawsuits, and that would wreck an city's budget.

They are trained to protect us and themselves.  Sometimes that means they have to kill and other times that means they can talk someone down.  They are trained to know the difference.

Unfortunately sometimes that means they have to kill someone.  And yes they are training to kill if need be.  They aren't trained to shoot arms or legs.  They are trained to shoot center mass.  Why, because they are not James Bond and this isn't the movies.

I promise there are very very few cops patrolling the streets looking to kill someone.

But I don't know exactly what happened.  I'm talking about generalities.

Yes, we are going in circles.

I've got no problem with an officer using their weapon in a situation like this, but the whole SIX TIMES, ONE IN THE HEAD seems excessive.

Apparently you, and others, think it would be completely reasonable for an officer to unload an entire clip into a guy if they resist arrest. I'm saying that the training of the officer should have been to restrain- and if the person resists arrest, using your gun to restrain them should be acceptable, but going for a kill shot should not be part of the training, and I'm pretty sure its not.

Police are taught to shoot for the largest part of a person, the body.  They are taught to shoot until the threat is gone.  Most times that means when police have to shoot someone they kill them.

Aren't police officers trained to shoot to restrain, not shoot to kill?

I mean, that's my whole point....SIX :lanekiffin:ING SHOTS, ONE HEAD SHOT

Are you honestly telling me that one of the first 5 shots couldn't provide the officer with the handicap to restrain this fat kid?

Why does it matter how many time he shot him?  I have family members who are former police officers.  I can promise you cops aren't trained to shoot to wound.  They are trained to shoot until the threat is gone.  If you have a 6'4 290+ person coming at you (if this is what happened) you can beat there is good chance it's going to take multiple guns shots to eliminate the threat.

Which facts or opinions are you referring to? The killing? Violation of freedom of speech and a initial peaceful assembly? Granted this young man was no saint and possibly should have handled the situation better. But let's not negate the fact that his killer was/is ill-equipped in every facet for a job of authority.

Cover the killing, cover the violations, just cover the damn story.

I don't need you to give me conjecture covered as facts when you don't have 25% of the actually facts.

It's embarrassing. They have played audio 100 times, that they haven't confirmed is real, of gun shots. Then are asking for peoples opinions that are jumping through hoops to say this proves the cop couldn't have been doing anything else but killing Brown with excessive force. Huh? If I had run with video or audio I before I could confirm it my news directors would have fired me.
