    Where are all the commenters from the other police article? Oh this doesn’t fit your narrative because he didn’t fight the cops and everything turned out just fine. Hypocritical Libs.

    I’m going out on a limb and guessing that you’re not the sharpest spoon in the drawer. First, it doesn’t say if he cooperated or not; ie, fighting with the cops. You assumed that. Second, he didn’t get shot…… in the back of the head like the other article stated, thank goodness. As you know (maybe not), each situation is different with all sorts of things that can go wrong in a flash. So, I know you like “sticking it to the libs”, but I don’t see anyone else here; just you, all alone.

    Seriously, Sandman?? Not even close to the same thing. If this individual was hit by a barrage of bullets, while endangering innocent bystanders, there would certainly be an uproar of concern about how our paid officials and protectors are handling a traffic stop as well.
    This is not the case at hand today.
    Even a Liberal can understand and sort that out.

    I’m a conservative but am always relieved when a LEO doesn’t shoot me.
