    Default Black guy gets gunned down while carrying an air rifle

    Black guy gets gunned down while carrying an air rifle.

    Cops gun down Ohio man holding toy rifle in Walmart ?like he was not even human?

    Police fatally shot a man carrying an air rifle at an Ohio Walmart earlier this week.

    Another customer called 911 to report 22-year-old John Crawford waving what appeared to be an AR-15 at children and others at the Beavercreek retailer.

    The mother of Crawford?s children said she was speaking to him by cell phone when he was confronted by police in the store.

    ?He said he was at the video games playing videos, and he went over there by the toy section where the toy guns were,? said LeeCee Johnson. ?The next thing I know, he said, ?It?s not real,? and the police start shooting, and they said ?Get on the ground,? but he was already on the ground because they had shot him.?

    ?I could hear him just crying and screaming,? Johnson said. ?I feel like they shot him down like he was not even human.?

    The headline appears to be a little misleading because this is not a "toy":



    but this does not look good for the police.

    Based on what's in that link, I have to ask, what kind of idiot would do that? You can't wave one of those around in a public place, ignore commands to drop it and expect to be sold tickets to the policeman's ball. Maybe that's just me though. Incredibly sad chain of events.

    Wasn't it still in the box? Maybe the guy froze up?

    Crawford looked to be attempting to load the black air rifle and ignored police commands to drop the weapon.


    Again.

    ignored police commands to drop the weapon.


    Once more.

    ignored police commands to drop the weapon.





    Were they supposed to say please?

    Unless I missed it, I didn't see anywhere in the article that the gun was still in the box. Even so, I wouldn't expect a cop to NOT fire at me if he had every reason to believe the box had a GUN in it.

    Without knowing more, it would seem to be a tragedy, I'm sorry the guy is dead, but it's his own fucking fault.

    A - if you have half a brain, you don't waive around something that looks like an assault rifle in a public place.

    B - when a cop says "drop the weapon" or "get out of the car" or "on the ground", you just fucking do it, or your ass might end up getting beaten or shot.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Why does it matter that he was black?

    Because he was targeted by the white cops of course.

    unless there's an issue with this force shooting black people then it doesn't.

    Um!... the original article never mentioned he was black.

    The original article does mention that the air rifle was black.

    So shouldn't the thread title actually read Guy gets gunned down while carrying a black air rifle ?

    Like you said in another thread "There is no upside to resisting cops. None. "

    Fight your fight in court, not on the streets. There will only be negative results when resisting. You won't win
