Second shooting in Fergusson kills a 25 year old

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

There has been a second shooting near Fergusson. I think gunning him down and killing him on the spot is waaay over the top. Couldm't they have just shot him in a leg? Or used a taser? Or used pepperspray? Or anything non lethal at all? What are these guys thinking?? I'm not from the US, but i can feel the tension from 3000 miles away for crying out loud! I don't know how the Fergusson police is going to solve this...

 

I'm not saying the victim wasn't a criminal, because he was, but gunning him down on the streets is not okay. Not okay at all. A video has been released as well.

 

 

"The unnamed suspect, identified only as a 23-year-old, was approached by officers after reports of a store robbery and a “man with a knife acting erratically,” St Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said.

“As officers arrived, the suspect turned towards the officers and started to walk towards them, clutching his waistband. He then pulled out a knife in what we describe as an overhand grip, and told the officers: 'Shoot me now, kill me now'.”

Police said the ignored verbal commands to drop the knife and continued to approach the officers, coming “within three to four feet” before two policemen opened fire."

I heard this on the news like 2 days ago. Legally you can't shoot to incapacitate because then it means your life wasn't in enough danger to use lethal force. Dude robbed a store with a knife and walked towards cop with it, I'm not surprised he was shot.

Needs more details on the event but opening fire against a threat like that was justified. 

 

Sure they could have used a tazer instead though.....

I can't wait until they say the cop in the first shooting is told he's innocent and not going to jail. Oh boy the riots will be going strong.

-edit-

 

If the dude has no gun, you have no business shooting him with one. Hell, even if he HAD a gun, there are non-lethal ways to put him to sleep from a comfortable distance.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I have to say I was less concerned with this one than with the first one. I can certainly more easily justify shooting someone when they're walking towards you with a knife, however a taser would have been a much better way of incapacitating him.

 

That being said, America's gun obsession is crazy and too many people die because of it.

I did once, people there tend to be racist assholes. Even to people of the same race. Never understood that.

Supposedly the cop that shot the original "victim" is in the hospital with a fractured orbital socket. Which is not something you get from a "surrendering suspect".

 

People need to allow the rule of law to prevail, stop rioting, and let whatever happens happen. All they are doing is making things 10 times worse.

 

We have the advantage of hindsight and picking apart what that cop did at our leisure. Who knows what really happened, unless we have video footage proving that it was an entirely race based "execution" then no one can really say 100% for sure what happened. All this media and rioting about it just makes finding the truth 100% impossible.

welcome to the south.

Just as many racists in the north as there are in the south. Their just a different color and hate a different color than the racists in the south.

Alabama was worse. Glad I'm not on that side of the country again.

I was getting racist remarks from white people, and I'm white.

I'm talking about the neighborhoods full of certain people where you can get killed for being white. Racism is everywhere. Not just the south. Furthermore, racism doesn't only apply to white people against black people, there are plenty of black racists that hate white people.

It bothers me when it's assumed these are random killings when those involved were robbers. Do I think the police are corrupt there? Hell yeah. But I also don't think those shot were saints, either. That entire city has issues.

 

Keep your hands to yourself and you wouldn't be in trouble, this goes for both civilians and police.

^this.

 

Just because a white cop shot a black kid, doesn't mean he did so because it was black, that assumption is the only racism I have seen going on in this whole debacle.
