A Shooting in St Louis

St. Louis County police say a man who pulled a gun and pointed it at an officer has been killed in Berkeley, Missouri.

Last night in the greater St Louis area, an 18-year-old black man was shot and killed by a white police officer. This time we have a video of the incident, and it appears to conclusively show that the suspect was pointing a gun at the cop, who fired and killed him. Within minutes, a crowd formed and clashed with police.

It will be interesting as the facts unfold if this incident results in more marches and protests.

Please be careful,and I am tell it to
all the media,when there is an action
of the police against somebody who is
going against the rules,please don´t
say a white officer shooted,say an offi
cer in his police work,and when the per
son who is with trouble,please say a
young man not just a white against a
black,as the race means nothing as it
was a question of public order,not a
racist war.

Well, here we go again. According to the FBI, approximately 50,000 police officers (slightly over 9 per cent of all officers) were assaulted in 2013, with 29 per cent of those assaulted sustaining injuries.

Forget the fact that this officer was absolutely and completely correct in his actions, as was the case with Michael Brown and the apparent near-universal majority of the other 461 felony suspects shot and killed, also in 2013, by U.S. police officers.

Go ahead and demonstrate and riot and burn the place down. Anyone wanna bet (I would do the proverbial $10.00 against a week-old Krispy Kreme) that this is not exactly what will occur when this officer ultimately is not indicted, if not in fact before??
