    Wow, that's an interesting point of view. Removed from the context of the story, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say it's understandable for a police officer to shoot a citizen for disobedience. You know how many belligerent, drunk college students would be laying dead if this was okay? A cop isn't given a gun to make people comply with his or her wishes, at least not from what I understand.

    If you'll notice.. it was a bit more than disobedience.

    RTH thinks it's ok to shoot if he disobeys a police officer, because police officers' commands must be law. I'm guessing he was absent for government class.

    Here's an update from the statesmen. And, of course, a total crock of you know what....

    ===

    An Austin police officer who fatally shot a man after a short pursuit last week told internal affairs investigators during a lengthy interrogation Thursday that he unintentionally fired his gun, the American-Statesman has learned.

    Detective Charles Kleinert told investigators that he had drawn his weapon as part of his effort to subdue Larry Eugene Jackson Jr. and that during a struggle between the two, Kleinert lost his balance, fell over and that a single round accidentally went off, several sources confirmed. Jackson, 32, was shot once in the back of the neck.

    Dude... shut it already. lol

    Seriously, you telling someone what they think isn't going to win you points in debate class, especially when i can simply go back through the thread and disprove your childish comments in a second.

    Let it go..

    lol

    Its a "crock" because it doesn't fit your agenda that cops are crooked.

    Again, you have no idea what happened, yet you're going to tell people what happened.

    Sigh.. if only we all were so wise.

    I'm glad I'm on the one explaining to the public and the police how I put an "accidental" in the back of someone's neck, AFTER I chased them down, car-jacking someone else's car along the way.

    I gather you might be a cop or have been in the past or have a cop relative. Maybe not. But those of us with an ounce of sense know this response is just one more example of the thin blue line phenomena. Rarely, do you ever see cops arresting someone in their own department. It almost never happens. And in cases like these, there is almost always a cover up. My stance is good cops arrest bad cops. We looked for almost 2 years to find an example of a good cop arresting a bad cop in their own department and never found one until Chief Howard Williams of San Marcos, Texas, arrested James Palermo for aggravated assault by a public servant when he slammed Alexis Alpha on the pavement for walking by his traffic stop, knocking out two of her teeth and giving her a concussion. And when that happened, we went to to San Marcos and supported him. He's the only cop we've found in the past two years who has held officers of his own department accountable for crimes against members of the community.

    You can ignore these facts and statistic all you want. The rest of us can deal in reality.

    Yes this paragraph certainly verifies that you deal in the realm of reality..
