    Disgusting lack of judgement by the police.  I'd wager anything there will be no justice either.

    Jonathan Ferrell's family should start bracing themselves for the not guilty verdict now.

    Re: Driving While Black

    Perhaps you didn't read your own source but he was running, not driving.

    I have no idea what race had to do with it, there was no indication that race was a factor, but you seem to be projecting that it was.

    That said, this killing is clearly a tragedy and, regardless of the reason, the officer in question has been rightfully charged with a crime. I'm wondering if manslaughter is too weak of a charge but I imagine that has to be determined.

    And the woman. Sheesh. People trying to break in to harm you rarely knock on the front door and ask for help...  

     




    Nor do they wait around the house for 15 minutes for the police to arrive......knowing she had called 9/11.  A cop with half a brain should have been able to connect the dots that this guy was no criminal.

     

    And mark my words, by the time the NC legal system is through, Jonathan Ferrell will be painted as a criminal and the cops as heros.

    I'm willing to bet, assuming that this story is correct, that you're completely wrong.

    You may have a future as a talking head on MSNBC ! Since you are so clearly 100% wrong

    and your political zealotry trumps common sense and reality.

    Drive, driving, drive, drove, driven.

    What difference, at this point, does it matter anyway?

    Re: Driving While Black

    I don't think the officer shot the driver just because he was black but I do believe his judgement was swayed to use his weapon so quickly based on the race of the victim.

    That wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    Re: Driving While Black

    If it was a white woman, does anyone think the person in the house would have called 911? The cop would have shot her?

    You sir, clearly do not have a great familiarity with what you might reasonably be able to describe as "white woman" south of the Mason/Dixon.

    Re: Driving While Black

    So, here the issue is not the gun itself or where he got it...

    ...but how it was used.  This phrase sticks out:

    "Our investigation has shown that Officer Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter. "

     

    So, given that owning a gun is both a right and a privilege, the ownership can be lenient, but the misuse of that gun - even by a police officer ITLOD, who are rightfully held to higher standards than civilians - needs to be punished accordingly.

    Perhaps, like drunk driving, if you get caught 'unlawfully discharging' a gun, you lose it for 6 months, etc.

    "Our investigation has shown that Officer Kerrick did not have a lawful right to discharge his weapon during this encounter. "

    That makes sense given the information provided. Police Officers are held to extremely strict rules regarding the use of deadly force. Thankfully.

    And which means that the right to own a gun and the 'right' to discharge it are held to a different legal standard.

    A person can smoke in public, but the law has determined that certain public places are protected against the scourge of tobacco smoke.

    The same should absolutely be true for guns.

    I heard of this. Tragic and he likely should be charged with murder not manslaughter

    Sad situation. The sad reality is that if this were a white female, I doubt it would have had the same outcome.

    Hence, we create gun free zones, which so far, have been a magnet for crazies.

    this is why the left fails us.
