Look the other way? Well, it would take a little practice, but I'll bet you could learn to look the other way and still pump three shots into a guy 8-10 feet away who's running away from ya.

Right-wingers flipped their lid that he had been murdered by the government, despite the above.
But change the narrative to a black man running from the police, and suddenly shooting a man running from the police is either okay or they won't admit it's wrong...

Instead, they ask b.s. questions like why was he running and refuse to answer why that's relevant...

Remember that black woman, Miriam Carey, who made a wrong turn near the White House, then fled, and the police shot her dead rather than block her car in after a chase. Remember how the left approved of that.

HOW do you justify that claim?

You really don't seem to grasp that THE REQUIREMENT IS ON THE SHOOTER to justify why shooting somebody is valid.
Instead, you ask mindless questions and pretend that not answering them somehow means the other side is wrong.

If he was being a threat to the cop, the cop has a right to defend himself.
That's one justifiable use of force.
If he was being a threat to others, that would be another reason justifiable use of force.

Are hypotheticals somehow an argument now?
Is that what actually happened?
No.

So how about you make an actual argument instead of this b.s. pretense that asking a question that I think you yourself probably don't know somehow is an argument...

It would be a profoundly screwed up society if we put the impetus on the victim to justify their actions while getting shot by the cops.
If you haven't figured out by now (or can't) that this is NOT how our government or society work, then I don't know what could be done for you...
Thanks from imaginethat and Camelot

Bodycam footage shows Utah police shoot man as he runs away

The Salt Lake City Police Department is the latest US police department to come under scrutiny after bodycam footage shows an officer shooting and killing a man, even as the man appeared to be running away.

An officer shot and killed Patrick Harmon, a 50-year-old black man, as he was being arrested on the evening of August 13.

On Wednesday, after a seven week investigation, the Salt Lake County district attorney concluded the officers' use of deadly force was justified because the officers said they feared Harmon was going to hurt them, according to a letter the district attorney sent to the Salt Lake County Sheriff and the city's police chief detailing his investigation into the incident.

Bodycam footage shows Harmon running away from police before he is shot by Salt Lake City police Officer Clinton Fox. The officers later said Harmon threatened them with a knife.

...Harmon was stopped by a police officer on the evening of August 13 after he rode a bicycle across six lanes and a median, according to a narrative laid out by the district attorney, Sim Gill. Harmon was required to have a "red rear tail light on his bicycle," the officer told him....
Bodycam footage shows Utah police shoot man as he runs away - CNN
The majority of whites in America will not take more than a passing interest in how policing is ruthlessly applied to black and indigenous Americans until we start getting videos of whites getting similarly gunned down by this kind of fascist policing! When average middle class whites fear that they...or more likely their unruly potsmoking teenagers might be gunned down, then they'll start clamoring for their reps to do something about it! But, by then it will likely be too late.

I believe that day will come when this becomes a generalized fear for every American who doesn't ride in armored limos and mercedes and go about with armed guards, because the overlords who are trying to lock every form of resistance down, whether aggressive or passive, will turn this kind of violence loose in Appalachia, the Great Lakes and other regions where former white middle class are falling through the cracks and ending up in poverty.

Threatening the White House is a really idiotic apples to oranges comparison. That said, please feel free to look over the DTT archives and show us how “the left approved of that”.

Riiiiight. Failing to have reflectors on your bicycle and running from the cops is EXACTLY THE SAME as given the appearance of being a threat to the fucking White House and possibly the President and his family.

Sure, I can see why you'd compare the two, makes perfect sense!

(For the mentally challenged, THAT was sarcasm!!!)

LOL

You just proved my point on regressives excusing the shooting.

And did I specify regressives on DTT?

There was a wrong turn at the White House, she then fled.

Taking a knee, lying on the ground, hands up, running away, broken tail light, no turn signal, child with a toy gun.....take your pick.

Just shoot 'em and call it good.
