they weren't destroying anything, they were attacking police officers.

Because the police shot a guy pointing a gun at them?

Keep reaching. Continued threats this morning that they will "burn flatbush to the ground."

Since when is it illegal to possess a handgun in Nyc, keep it loaded, and point it at cops? Effing racist pigs!

As is always the case, we don't know what happened, so we fall back on our default settings about race, police, drug users, age, etc.

It may be that this kid pulled the gun intending to shoot the cops.

It may be that this kid pulled the gun intending to turn it over to the cops.

It may be that the cops overreacted on sight of the gun and shot him when they shouldnt have.

It may be that the cops shot him for no reason and just got lucky after the fact that he had a gun, or they planted on one him to cover their asses.

I find the selective hatred of cops in OT to be amusing.

Cops should never be allowed to fire first. Ever. If they are scared they should run away.

A citizen's life should always be more important than a cop's life. There should be a minimum number of cops killed each year by bad guys in this country with our gun laws. If you don't like it, are too scared, or don't think you can not fire first, don't become a cop.

Americans are brainwashed into thinking heavy handed police tactics are necessary and actually work in the long run. It's comical to me the whole judicial system goes out the window whenever a cop gets scared. Which one is it....right to bear arms or right to shoot someone in public if you get scared.

Please tell me this is a joke, I live in Boston much like you and I have several friends that are cops and work in Dorchester, Mattapan, and Roxbury. In some cases they have had to use their firearms and I will bet the people on the other end of the shooting were not upstanding citizens.

You're an idiot. Seriously. I'm being absolutely 100% sincere about this. You are an idiot.

This is one of those things where if I heard you say it in real life I'd instinctively slap you open palm. I wouldn't hit you closed fist, though. It's not cool to hit the mentally handicapped with a closed fist.

Doesn't matter if he thinks they are upstanding citizens or not. They are citizens and you shouldn't get to shoot them. Why is a cop's personal safety put above a citizen's right?

I'm a cop and I'm scared so I get to shoot you....where did this idea come from? It's ridiculous. I don't care about your friends safety- they signed up to do a dangerous job and get paid very well for doing almost nothing. Accountants get paperclips. Cops get shot by bad guys. It's life. Wear a vest if you're scared and if you have children that depend on you to come home at night, get a new job rather than shoot every black citizen that poses a threat.

Seriously, I'm doubting that your IQ is high enough to operate fingers. How are you posting this? Text-to-speech? Your nurse?
