Now here’s where the cop overdoes it !!! … But why in the fuck would you ‘ take a two handed shooting stance ‘ toward a cop ?!!! … Every time I begin to read an article such as this        I immediately think ‘ gotta be black … ‘ .. And 19 times outta 20 I’m right ! … Sorry folks , but that’s the way it is … No wonder there’s the big uproar over keeping statistics on it …

Chief of Department Terence Monahan told a news conference … ‘ This was a call of a man pointing what 911 callers and people felt was a gun at people on the street ‘ Monahan said. ‘ When we encounter him , he turns with what appears to be a gun at officers ‘ …

It’s not skin colour … It’s socio-economics with poor upbringing and squandered education …
