It is nice that the Sheriff's office has made it clear that the whole thing is the fault of the unarmed homeowner, not the guys that emptied two magazines in his general direction because he "lunged" at them.  Sure he lunged at you, where he was going to lunge both of you to death simultaneously and so he had to be killed immediately.  Of course, they failed to kill him but they were most assuredly trying to do so or else they wouldn't have fired in the first place.

How convenient that the dash cam footage and audio is unavailable!

God just shielded him. I know he did, cause they was trying to kill him,

That's what clips/magazines are for, right, for manly men that can't aim?

What kind of dipshiat Keystone cops are these? I mean I'm glad in this instance that Pensacola's Finest can't shoot for shiat but I'd hate to be in a position where I actually needed their help.

/well that's true of all cops

I suspect he was a victim.

Seriously, an overweight, 60 year-old black man of his means in Florida isn't going to lunge at two cops with pistols drawn.

There is nothing more frightening to me than a 60 year old man lunging at me.

I don't buy much into the "God was looking out for me" thing, but what just happened there was a f*cking miracle.  This sh*t doesn't just "happen."  He should be f*cking dead, my friend.  What happened there was a miracle, and I want you to f*cking acknowledge it.

/PS: in all my viewings of that movie, I never before noticed "Jerry Seinfeld's" pants were unbuttoned.

Remember, if you don't show the piggies the proper respect for their authoritah in a quick enough manner, they'll just shoot you and say "HE WAS COMING RIGHT AT US!"
 
2013-08-01 11:06:36 AM  
Yeah, it's too bad those dash cams are just so unreliable in all the convenient um, inconvenient times.

16 warning shots.

Because, as you know, the penalty for car theft is death.

"The tragedy of this is the noncompliance to the directions of law enforcement officers," said Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia County, Florida. "Had that occurred we wouldn't be having this discussion. It's a tragedy all the way around. He is both a suspect and a victim."

Yeah, that's right Sheriff douchebag.

They should hire George Zimmerman to teach them how to shoot

Let's hear it for proportional application of force.  Now THESE idiots should be sitting in front of a jury.
 
2013-08-01 11:12:02 AM  
Shooting unarmed people because you "feared for your life" is now the norm for civilians, why shouldn't it be more so for cops who really don't even need an excuse to shoot someone?

snip
Roy Middleton, 60, was hit by two of those rounds in his legs. He is in good condition at a Pensacola hospital after a metal rod was placed inside his shattered left leg.
snip

so he isn't actually even dead.  Does this mean that

a)  Florida police marksmanship is in a very sad state
b)  Florida police marksmanship is so good that they can fire dozens of rounds accurately into a mans legs, rendering him harmless in a nonlethal fashion.

/show you work.

Hey, look here.  Those deputies have to get home to their families after they get off work.  If they have to mow down a 1,000 unarmed citizens on their own private property so be it.

Follow direct orders and you will not be shot.  You will be hung at Nuremberg.

Even if the cops weren't lying all that might have happened is he tripped coming out of the car with keys in his hand.

Look at some point do we just say "We don't need cops anymore, thanks, gubye" if they're going to do shiat like this? And then not show up when you call them because your call isn't serious enough?

Where did they recruit these cops from? COBRA?

Police budgets have had to be cut severely by all the pension costs faced by departments. We should decertify public sector unions to reduce these costs so police can get better training.

It just occured to me that the cops are shooting at this guy in his driveway not hitting shiat, one of those bullets could have easily hit his house, went through the wall and hit someone inside.

That's why the Pensacola PD has this guy on retainer.

I'm sure the police will investigate the police and determine that the police did nothing wrong.

You should be back on the politics tab where people spout off about shiate they have no clue about.  That's an environment that seems to suit your strengths better.

"The message to the public is this was a tragedy," Morgan said. "And it was a tragedy because we had an individual, a citizen, who for whatever reason, either impairment due to alcohol or drugs, or just taking it upon himself not to be compliant to following basic direct orders."


F*ck this guy sideways with a rusty cactus.
