The BLM movement and the media have convinced half the country that it's 50/50 if a black person is going to get out of any given traffic stop alive. And even those who don't believe it are going to take the excuse and run with it.

Regardless of facts in this case I have alot of respect for officers that deal with Black folks at all after the year we just had. You couldnt pay me enough to put on that uniform and try to police these people, any and all mistakes could ruin your life or worse and the media will call it justified.
Didn't we see that kind of behavior in some National Geographic Show describing a "Tribe"?
Don't forget about the warrants.you have a constitutional right to flee...
So he has to distain for the police, dies at the end of a cops gun....I can see in his reality how those go hand and hand..
Window tint and air fresheners. I’ll wait to hear the real story or see some footage.
I never said a cop could shoot someone for outstanding warrants. I just posted the statute that says when a cop can use deadly force in MN.It's not a fact that a cop can shoot someone who's fleeing just because they have outstanding warrants. But it does seem to be your opinion that they can.

I posted the MN statute that says when a cop can use deadly force.I spent about three seconds trying to pull up the case. Pretty sure the court rules you have a right to flee it didn’t say whether it mattered whether you were guilty or not.
Not showing up to court is always a bad idea....
I think I need more coffee.
The fleeing felon thing is only relevant if he was driving at somebody, for example, or maybe some other wild hypothetical situation where the cop somehow knew that the kid was leaving right then and there to go kill or hurt someone else.
Guess what would have happened if he just stayed put and took responsibility for what he did? I will wait for the video.
Protesting the capitol, hell even trashing it is a different act of anger than victimizing your own community because you lack critical thinking skills. What I see here is less damage and life lost by a group of folks whom are justifiably angry because an election was stolen from the American people. The things we are discussing on this thread is the reaction we see every. single. time a black man fails to follow orders from authority and is justifiably or unjustifiably harmed.
If cops in the US killed black men as often as you seem to believe they do, none of this footage would be in existence.Based on examples I’ve seen, it ranges from nothing to arrest to a severe beating to death. The whole spectrum. But it doesn’t matter.
Why is it that so many people seem to think that two wrongs really do make a right?
It’s possible if not probable that both fleeing was wrong, AND killing him for fleeing was also wrong. Making wrong decisions doesn’t mean deadly force is automatically justified. Yet far to often when a cop does something, people justify their actions, no matter what they are, so long as the other person did something wrong, no matter what that was either.
