  • This is the unfortunate a byproduct of the current political climate. It seems that the only people who want to be police at this point are the ones that wanna play cowboy and shoot first, ask questions later.

  • If he dies this will be a sad sad day. It already is actually when we the citizens of the United States have to fear of being killed by zealous officers willing to do whatever it takes to make a name for themselves. I hope the last video of this young man will not be of him being murderd for absolutely nothing.

  • And the car was not even stolen! You go to the car and open the car door On an unexpected 18 eating a hamburger. You have got to be completely incompetent I mean completely do you think this kid even recognized you as a police officer you didn’t even announce yourself it’s dark and you open the car door Of an unexpected and Teen eating a hamburger. He drives away of course he’s startled and you just open fire and of course he’s gonna keep driving away because you already fired shots at him!!! And the car was not even stolen you had the wrong vehicle!

  • The ONLY reason that pig is being arrested is because of bodycam. Cops lie all the time, folks. Most can't be trusted.
