re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
[quote]guy turns on car with hands out of the car, the turning the car on causes the cop to react and go into the car, he puts it in gear while he was in the car. [/quote] Well this is interesting. So the cop reached in after the guy started the car? I thought the cop reached in precipitating t...

[quote]We give cops guns and the right to confront people. If I confronted some a-hole on my street for speeding by my children and, when I stuck my arm in, he started to drive off so I shot him in the face, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say I'm about to be charged with murder. Well frick that ...

re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
[quote]I don't think anyone has said that. The only thing being discussed is the degree he should be charged with.[/quote] I agree with this. Since it has been stated the guy started the car and shifted into gear before he was killed, than I would think murder 2 is out of the picture. I s...

[quote]Our police departments are very sick. As usual, the officer lied about what happened, and his fellow cops went along. We see this over and over, again. After tape is found, we learn the dept tried to cover it up. They have been getting away with murder. Thank god for technology captur...

If the guy did in fact turn the car on after the cop reached in, then I have changed my mind leaning towards murder 2 to manslaughter....

[quote]If you were the perpetrator and used this defense you'd be laughed out of the courtroom and into your cell. And you're not sworn to protect. If cops are going to be judged by a different standard, it should be a harsher one, not a lighter one. [/quote] I have stated this as well on occasio...

[quote]The context you specifically cited was performing the duties of a police officer. So according to that, every person performing the duties of the police officer has a special context from which we should View their actions.[/quote] A cop put in a potentially dangerous situation reacts very...

re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
[quote]I don't know. If his intention was to kill the guy then certainly murder should be on the table. His calm demeanor at the start of the video leads me to believe that wasn't his intent. If he was just trying to stop the guy from leaving the scene then I'm thinking manslaughter.[/quote] Ther...

re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
[quote]But you've created a special context just for cops which will always apply to them, no matter how egregious their actions are. That's not context. That's a built-in excuse.[/quote] I absolutely said or did nothing of the sort. I simply said the context of killing is much different than ma...

re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
[quote]I was thinking manslaughter. I don't think they could prove intent here if that's necessary. [/quote] So here is the question. What should he be charged with? Manslaughter would be the least. Could you say that pulling a gun and shooting so close to a victim was in fact reckles...

[quote]All that means is that every cop who kills someone in the line of duty gets "context" added to their killing.[/quote] You do realize that EVERYONE who kills someone has context in which the killing was committed added to legal decisions, correct? If I shot someone in the back of the hea...

[quote]context will have an impact on the severity of the punishment. It's very clear he reacted poorly to a stressful situation. That is murder but he may not get much time for that.[/quote] That is what I am saying. And I think he will get and should get significant time. But I also thi...

[quote]I respect all that. Many murderers commit their murders in a haze of stress and bad judgment. Funny thing is, they're still convicted as murderers. This guy needs to see the same consequences for his fatal mistake that you or I would.[/quote] And I respect that. And I agree with that. Th...

[quote]The cop grabbed the guy after the guy held the door shut and refused to get out of the car. Isn't that what you would expect to happen? [/quote] The guy tried to keep the door closed but did not violent act. The guy was not violent. The cop should have slowed down and while I hate to say...

[quote]Unfortunately? He should never get out of jail. He flat out murdered the driver of the car.[/quote] Do you think that guy would just walk up and shoot someone in the head? The fact is all traffic stops can be stressful. He approached it well at first. But then he really crapped the be...

[quote]I'm not sure what to make of that video. It's clear the driver refused to get out of the car and even held the door shut. It's also clear he started driving away. Would it have been better for him to pursue the driver in a chase through town and possibly put other people in danger too?[/quote...

re: another black killed for failing to promptly remove seatbelt? - thetempleowl
so, I saw the video. To be blunt, the cop shouldn't have shot. The cop tried to open the car door and the guy inside stopped it. At that point he reached into the car probably to grab his wrist and the guy moved away. The cop then shot him in the head. After being shot in the head, the foot...

re: Terror attack or no? - thetempleowl
I am not sure what some are talking about. This was a terrorist attack. The attack was performed by a dip shite who wanted to have an effect on the political policies of the country. It was an attack in our country to bring to discussion our continuing war we are waging in the middle east. ...

re: The Death Penalty in Louisiana - thetempleowl
