But make sure you at least save the last bullet for yourself.

/stupid cop.

Who gave Barney Fife his bullets back? Anyone who has seen the video knows this gop is going down HARD for his incompetence.
 
2006-03-10 01:53:33 PM
attempted voluntary manslaughter that sounds unpossible
 
2006-03-10 01:53:35 PM
Can't see the video right now (damn work). Can anyone fill me in briefly on what happened?
 
2006-03-10 01:54:12 PM
Saw the video, but it's hard to understand what exactly is going on. Did the cop tell that guy to get up, and then when the guy started to get up, the cop shot him? Am I remotely close?

Maybe I did understand...
 
2006-03-10 01:54:20 PM
cop is black. Must be defended at all costs.
 
2006-03-10 01:55:30 PM
3 shots and no kill...wow that is pathetic.
 
2006-03-10 01:55:54 PM
Guy is on the ground. The cop tells him to get up. As he slowly starts to get up, he gets shot three times.
 
2006-03-10 01:57:45 PM
I saw the vid:
Carrion was face down in prone position.
Cop: Get up
Carrion: I'm getting up now
Cop: Get down MFKR, bang bang bang.

This guy wasn't even driving, he was the helpless passenger who was along for the ride when the driver decided to floor it.
 
2006-03-10 01:58:41 PM
Even the witness can be heard on camera yelling, "But you told him to get up!" It's horrifying.

That's exactly what it looks like. Farking atrocious. Cop should be tried for attempted murder. It also looks like he continues to yell at the guy for a while after he was laying on the ground moaning and bleeding.
 
2006-03-10 01:59:01 PM
That video is disturbing. He tells the guy to get up and then shoots him when he tries to get up.

As a side note, the cop, Ivory Webb, played football at the University of Iowa when I was there. Had trouble getting his signals straight then. Can't belive someone gave him a gun.

I'm sure Jesse Jackson will be issuing a statement condemning this act of police brutality. Right? Jesse?
 
2006-03-10 01:59:56 PM
Typical over zealous cop, thank God there was a video here.
 
2006-03-10 02:00:02 PM
That farking cop should be executed in the most painful manner possible. farking bastard tells him to get up, and when the man complies, the motherfarker shoots him and keeps yelling at him to "shut the fark up" when he's crying from pain.

Protect and serve my ass. This man should never, ever be allowed anywhere near a weapon for the rest of his life. Did I mention he should be executed?

I saw the oroginal video they aired when this happened. They told him to get up. When he did, they shot him. They played the tape in its entirety for incident regarding the shooting. At least the part of which they were removing him from the vehicle and shortly before that. The guy was following instructions. He even identified himself as military while cooperating.

I don't know how much of the video CNN is showing as I can't see it at the moment, but when it first aired, yes... the guy was following their instructions. He did what they said and they shot him.

Cops are always right.

Cops are always right.
Cops are always right.

Get down or get up..., Either way his hands were completely visible during the shooting. Shouldn't we have the right to avoid being shot, so long as we aren't pointing a gun, knife, or car at the po-po.
 
2006-03-10 02:01:55 PM
God damn, that cop needs to be executed.

Seriously, if this guy doesn't get jail time for shooting an unarmed, prone suspect, there better be another farking riot.
 
2006-03-10 02:02:58 PM
That's exactly what it looks like.

That's what I thought was happening...

I guess I was hoping I saw it wrong. Or maybe my brain was just incapable of wrapping itself around the idea that a person, even a cop, could issue two subsequent contradictory orders...

The whole thing is just surreal.
 
2006-03-10 02:03:02 PM
This was on 60 Minutes a couple weeks ago. The cop says he said "Shut up!" not "Get up!"

That isn't what it sounded like when I heard it.

... Another "let's bash all police because a few of them are douchebags!!" thread!!!1! WOW what a surprise.
 
2006-03-10 02:03:37 PM
I'm just waiting for all the FARK cop cheerleaders to come in and defend this guy.
 
2006-03-10 02:03:41 PM
At his trial, they should say "Not Guilty".
Then shoot him when he tries to leave the courthouse.
 
2006-03-10 02:03:43 PM
I don't understand why some cops have to be beyond assholes like this..Don't they understand what the Police are meant to do before they apply for the job? What kind of a world are we living in? Just this one motherfarker is enough to destroy the reputation of a hundred good Police officers.

haha im on spring break, and uhh im sitting at my parents house

jakedata: This was on 60 Minutes a couple weeks ago. The cop says he said "Shut up!" not "Get up!" That isn't what it sounded like when I heard it.

He first told him to get up, then after he shot him he told him to shut up.

if the cops can't shoot unarmed civilians
then the terrorist have already won

Chill out dude. An unarmed man was shot. People are angry, they have a right tobe. Even if by some chance the cop did say "shut up", the officer used deadly force against an unarmed person.
Not cool.

LAPD = source of LA riots and the reason that OJ Simpson is currently a free man.

Normally, I avoid the pig-bashing threads, but the LAPD gets a special exemption.

Friggin' pigs.

Dear submitter, San Bernadino County Sheriff is not the same thing as "L.A. Cop".

San Bernadino might as well be back woods Georgia compared to the city of Los Angeles.

/that place is so 909
 
2006-03-10 02:09:47 PM
smeegle I watched the same video and I could not tell if it was get up or don't get up, I heard all the bleeps of the guy talking smack to the cop.

Do you have an audio enhanced version that I can watch so I can hear waht you heard, cause I heard the opposite.
 
2006-03-10 02:09:56 PM
I saw the video on this one and it scared the shiat out of me.

The cop should definitely get a new toothbrush ready.

He had absolutely no provocation for the shooting. I have already heard the retired and current cops rationalization for his behavior. I don't buy into any of it. He shot that poor bastard without provocation. "Oh, poor me the stress is toooooo much." Wrong job if you can't deal with it. It comes with the territory. Ask any cop for an honest opinion (stressing honest) and they will chime in resoundingly for the victim.

If they don't have a screening process or constant review of the officers out there with guns and badges. Their bad.

I believe the victim is going to recover from the 3, count them, 3 gunshot wounds. He will soon own the LAPD. Their is absolutely no justification for this shiat.

That isn't what it sounded like when I heard it.


The thing is the guy responds with something like "Okay, I'm going to get up." The officer telling to "get up" and the victim responding with "get up". Sounded the same to me.

I'm sorry, unless this farkwad has some sort of really bad speach impediment, there's a big different between an SH sound and a hard G sound... especially when you are barking commands.

Ha ha. My space bar is broken. It's not my fault, I don't want to take responsibility.
I blame Bush.
Please pass the Cool-aide.

Pxtl The LAPD was the source of the riots ROFL you are a moran. The reason for the riots were gready, barbaric black people who were looking for an excuse to loot.

It's like says guns kill people, I have never seen a gun shoot by itself.
 
2006-03-10 02:12:42 PM
FlashLV: I heard all the bleeps of the guy talking smack to the cop.

No, the bleeps were the cop yelling at the victim telling to stay the fark down, etc.

I just got to see the CNN video. Sadly, it is of a) poor quality and b) doesn't show the whole thing. I saw the original when it came out. All the cop was doing was screaming cuss words at the guy after he shot him. The victim was sitting there screaming and cryiing out in pain on the ground.
 
2006-03-10 02:12:50 PM
Oh, and not to mention ... THREE SHOTS at a prone target, and you only wound him.

What was the cop's name, Ray Charles?
 
2006-03-10 02:12:57 PM
Paul C No provication? Did you see the guy trying to get up to attack the cop?
 
2006-03-10 02:13:08 PM
Correction:

San Bernadino Sheriffs Dept.
Not LAPD. My bad.

I don't know, as the guy was getting up, I clearly saw him lunge at the cop's legs. To defend himself, the cop returned with force. Totally, totally justifiable. Don't want to get shot? Don't run and don't lunge at a cop's legs.

/serious or joking - you decide
