Missouri Police Shoot Dead Man Who Pulled Gun

Actual headline in today's WSJ.



So did the cops shoot a dead man? Or did the cops shoot a man dead?

This happened about two miles away from Ferguson, btw.

    Apparently he was an armed black man before he was dead.

    I can't really tell anything from the video, but he supposedly pulled a gun on the cop and now is dead.

    Then protests broke out. Apparently the new rule is cops aren't supposed to shoot anyone that is black


    EDIT: Correction....right at the end of the video the guy on the left hand side can be seen raising his arm with a gun in his hand.
  • So, the sub-headline was "60 Gather at Site."

    This lead me to imagine 60 cops shooting a dead guy.

    It's the Dirty Digger's not-so-subtle influence. He's dragged down the quality of every newspaper he owns. :rolleyes:

    Oh and before Comic asks...yes, he pulled a gun on the cop at near point blank range, he completely deserved to do die.

    But he was such a good boy! They didn't have to shoot him, they could have tazed him. He was in fear for his life because the cop was white!
    And the list goes on......

    Initial reports were he was unarmed.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    If he pulled a gun I agree.

    I don't know, the mob maybe. But they were not objecting simply because Apparently the new rule is cops aren't supposed to shoot anyone that is black

    But I get it. Jbilly gets to make all the asinine comments he wants.
