From TFA: "the officer followed his training"

Worst excuse of all. What they are saying is their training is abysmal.

If they're white they're alright, if they're brown shoot them down. This concludes your officer training.

Texas: Violently proud of legalized execution of brown people on the spot

He was a brown guy holding a weapon.  Of course the police murdered him.  They probably carved a notch in their gun afterward.

Jokes on you citizens!

Hmmm, I wonder if there was anything, anything at all, about the victim that made the cop act even worse than usual.......

I see it now.
He broke the first rule of dealing with cops.
Be white.

I see the word "kind" on his shirt. That's just asking to be shot in Texas.

Rajan "Raj" Moonesinghe

That explains a lot about why this guy is dead.

Yet another reminder that the second amendment (and US laws in general) protect only white people while binding everyone else.

"A statement from lawyers with the Combined Law Enforcement Association of Texas, or CLEAT, said Sanchez followed police protocol."

Yes, that's the problem.

If he did in fact fire the weapon two times he sorta brought it onto himself. Otherwise it is not illegal to hold a rifle on your own property as long as it is not point in the direction of other people homes etc. I was told many times by LEO in my area that I encountered during my night time route of retrieving money from my vending machines to always hold one hand out in a "stop" motion and say stop 3 times as fast as I can then bang away. This way on security cameras it gives the impression I gave the person I feel is fixing to rob etc me a choice. Of course this was said with a chuckle and "thems the rules...rules dont stipulate you cant already be drawing etc just get the first STOP out before pulling the trigger" which is a way of gaming the situation. That I am sure they use to their advantage.

The guy was pointing his gun down the street and then firing into his house.  There are better things to be outraged about.
 
2022-12-03 11:58:37 AM  
Maybe he got shot cause he's brown. Waving your gun around is just dumb. If you want to defend your home, a rifle is a poor choice. I'd recommend a shotgun for most people. Also take up a defensive position and call the cops.

The two-minute Ring video shows Moonesinghe carrying the rifle outside his home while walking toward the street. He appears to briefly hold up the rifle before turning around and walking toward his front door and pointing the rifle.

He appears to say, "Yep, you want this?" Several seconds pass and then Moonesinghe says, "Are you sure?" "Oh my God, you're f------ stupid. You're f------ stupid."

He then points the rifle toward the doorway and a loud gunshot is heard while a police car passes in the background of the video. A second police car then passes. A second shot is heard while Moonesinghe is not in view of the camera, according to the video.


That's an unusual way to react to thinking that your home has been burglarized.

Training consists of pissing their pants, and then shooting the "suspect".

Of waiting in a hallway of a school, while kids are getting slaughtered.

Just as long as they get to go home that night.

Weird it's like... maybe hiring a dropout with barely a GED, racist ideas, and a chip on their shoulder isn't the best person to trust with a gun and public safety?

Sorry, I didn't realize that holding a weapon and discharging it in a fashion that doesn't actually directly put anyone else at risk as a capital crime. I'm glad you guys are here to inform us that we shouldn't be upset when police execute people in the street for committing relatively minor breaches of the law, because of course it's totally okay for the police to shoot anybody who they think could possibly be a threat to somebody under some circumstances because they get scared

Obviously we should train all the police to be pants pissing scared all the time and should anybody who makes them nervous. Especially if that person is committed a minor crime. That whole jury and presumption innocence and all that stuff is a bit of a waste of time anyway, better to just get it over with and shoot them in the street

This is definitely the pathway to a successful civilization with liberty and justice for all. I'm glad you guys are here to help push this agenda and inform us all how we shouldn't be upset about these things. You're doing God's work son

Autoerotic Defenestration: [Fark user image image 668x374]


Definitely, totally. Somebody committing an apparent crime that upsets others is definitely an executable offense. This whole jail thing is a continent of hand, way too many people are incarcerated. It would be just better if we let the police shoot them in the street instead, that makes a lot more sense

This is how we will work to build a good Society with freedom and justice for all, the most free society, a true democracy is shining beacon on the hill to which all other countries can look at with envy and I have absolutely and totally free the people are, and how safe the streets are, how low the crime rate is, how few people end up in jail. Yep, this is the way. Public executions by police.

Sooner or later, there'll be no criminals left, right?

Allegedly.
That "information" was from someone who called the cops (on a dark skinned man with a gun). Maybe it was accurate maybe not.

Even if it is true neither accusation merits an summary execution by cop.
