yup, he did deserve prison, arguably more than he got, I see no evidence towards racial bias but this was murder.

To be completely fair to the officer, the kid had a knife. No excuse for more than three rounds.

You’re right buddy, a knife is a lethal weapon. Over here in London, people are murdered every day by knife- mostly black youth and gangs. If I had a pistol and someone was coming at me after being told to put it down numerous times, I’d pull the trigger.

yeah my issue is the amount he shot him, also shooting people while they run away(unless they just killed/hurt or are about to kill or hurt) is shady af.

Except that if he didn’t stop the kid (on PCP with a knife) and that kid killed someone, then what? He stopped a threat to him and others. I haven’t seen the dash cam footage but even reading the LEFT paper, I’m not convinced he did the wrong thing. Next time, imagine that you are around the corner from this incident, and the cop gives up pursuit and doesn’t shoot a dangerous drug-addled teen...

It shouldn't if we are all equal

Because the regressive media needs to have a field day.

The regressive left can't perpetuate a culture & race war when every side isn't being pitted against each other, after all.

People have gotten longer sentences for pot possession. What a joke. African American's blood is so cheap!
