For those who won't RTFA, here are the stipulated facts:

1) Taco Bell employees see guy slumped behind wheel of car in parking lot, call police.
2) Police arrive, approach car, and see gun in dude's lap.
3) Police block car from being able to back up, proceed to knock on guy's window.
4) guy gels pumped full of lead.

The police also claim:
1) the car wasn't in park, so they were afraid of sudden movement of the vehicle (hence boxing in the car)
2) when he woke up after persistent knocking (he wasn't very responsive to initial attempts), the man reached for his gun.

So basically, the police loudly wake up deeply sleeping dude who has a gun in his lap, he startles awake, and they blow him away for it.

Again?

I've eaten at that Taco Bell, so I'm getting a kick...and some really bad gas.

I wonder if a specific person will show up in here to defend why the cops were justified in this?

I read that article in Vincent Vega's voice.

Time to add sleeping while black to the list of crimes punishable by death.

/yes yes, he had a gun in his lap
//they didn't think to wake him from afar?
///if only the police had access to devices that emit loud noises...

You left out the fact that the 40 cal gun was stolen and loaded.   Best follow instructions if you are going to go sleepy with a loaded gun on your lap in public.

But it's ok, because they tried to give first aid for his dozens of bullet wounds.

Things will change. People will start executing the cops. They drive around in marked cars and are seriously outnumbered in a heavily armed nation. 

This is not something I condone just what I predict is going to start happening

I dunno, if you have a gun in your lap, and are surrounded by cops with their guns pointed at you.
Maybe you should put your hands up, not reach for the gun.
A stolen gun no less with an illegal magazine.

Sounds like the cops took out the trash before it started to stink up the place.

So possession of a stolen firearm is punishable by death now? Without a trial?

Next time someone is asleep, shove your gun in their face and scream at them. See how calm and rational they act.

Permanent Solutions For Permanent Problems: WTF was the guy sleeping in his car with a gun in his lap?


We could ask him but he's dead.

Authorities said a fully loaded .40 caliber semiautomatic handgun with an extended magazine was recovered at the scene, and had been reported stolen out of Oregon.

So illegal, plus illegal. I'd be pretty touchy with someone passed out with a gun in their lap too...
Not saying they should have killed him, but I wasn't there and this one isn't clear cut. That whole "plastic sheeting" part on the window is a troublesome though, seems like a taser or bean bag shotgun would have worked just fine...
Best just not to pass out in a running car with a stolen gun in your lap, that's my advice to anyone regardless of race, creed or color.

Pointing out that there has been a rash of cops killing black men in this country, the majority of them unarmed, makes me a racist? According to who? You?

Mrsleep has never and will never say anything that requires a moment's consideration, or response, from any other person on the planet.

The dude was asleep to the point of unresponsiveness, possibly impaired otherwise as well. There is almost no way he had the wherewithal to respond appropriately except by sheer luck. User name does not check out.

If you rank this dude in with the common black man, just because he's black, how is that not racist?

Most black men I knoware professionals and just as middle class as me. But some I see ...like walking the streets at night, in groups, with their pants at their ass trying to front...well, I like to think they're trash. If I saw a white person doing the same, they're also trash. And if they get shot by the PoPo for reaching for a gun, well I tend not to give a sh*t.

Do black men get treated unfairly sometimes? Yes. Maybe even more than sometimes, depending where you live. But defending this garbage because he happens to be black, well...that's racist.

Many DUH-muricans still have difficulty grasping the concept "Black Lives Matter".

Thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers. POLLY WANNA DAMN CRACKER! NOW! ARK!

/ Nobody is saying that White Lives Don't Matter. It doesn't have to be always about you and your druthers. We're just saying, don't make it about you. YOU'RE NOT TRUMP. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ALWAYS ABOUT YOU! Unless you can take the heat, stay the fark out of the kitchen.

Or are you Trump? Maybe the problem with deplorables is that they are Trump, that they see some leopard-like reflexes there that they recognize sub-consciously and embrace, to the great detriment of all our faces.

Never underestimate racists or gun fetishists' ability to justify summary execution for the most petty and inane of shiat.

Steal candy? Jaywalk? Speed? Fark it! Just shoot him! It's not like we have lawyers and judges and entire swaths of the legal system devoted to detention and fair trials, as guaranteed to EVERYONE, including criminals, in this country.
