Michael Roseld, a former East-Pittsburg Police Officer, was cleared of charges of killing 17 year old Antwon Rose II who was unarmed at the time of the fatal shooting. The verdict came after only 4 hours of deliberation.
Justified shooting. The dindunuffin' was riding in the same car used in a drive-by shooting earlier, still had the guns used in the shooting inside the car, had the window damaged by bullets. The cop correctly identified the car as being occupied by armed, violent gang members, and reacted proportionally to what could be an attempt to murder him.
The headline should be "suspect fleeing police order to stop from a suspected shooting incident, was a valid reason to shoot"
Colour, race or any other description has nothing to do with the shooting.
An officer came across a vehicle that was recently in a drive-by shooting. 2 men runaway. The officer, believing they're likely armed, shoots at them.
Fixed the story to not include race. Race is not relevant to the story as nothing was racially motivated.
Stories like these make me think about what Black Lives Matter really means. Honestly, I’m not 100% sure there was some BLM thing for the black teen shot but I’d be willing to put my money on it. As someone who is opposed to racism and racial based policy, BLM is not protecting black lives and is simply anti-cop. I think if anyone has watched The Hate U Give, my favorite movie of 2018 highly recommended, the underlying issue isn’t simply white cops wanting to shoot unarmed minorities. It’s important to not resist an officer and handle any abuse in court where judges will dismiss charges against you. Although fleeing doesn’t prove guilt it does scare the officer and they make take any concealed movement as a possible reach for a gun.
Right DKO, because people running away mean to kill you. We need to weed out all these pussy cops who fear for their lives.
live by the gun die by the gun. sad
it is pretty crazy that he shot him 3 times from behind after being sworn in to the force only 90 minutes earlier.
He kinda looks like Trey Gowdy
Thank you for taking out the trash
