From what I've seen and read, the police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile in Minnesota seemed to have done so out of fear fueled incompetence rather than deliberate malice. Tragically, Mr. Castille is dead and so the distinction is lost on him, but for the rest of us, the cop's motivation is and should be important.

Yes, you can hear that on the video. The policeman is clearly completely panicked. The voice of that guy with his gun still out screaming in terror is just about all you need to hear to understand what happened.

I don't see how you guys are able to deduce what happened. Pretty much any time a police officer perceives a threat dire enough for them to use lethal force, they are likely to be quite scared.

Do we (the public) know whether there was any video of the incident at the moment of the shooting and just before? A body camera or a dash-cam maybe?

But when the governor said that wouldn't have happened to a white man, I believe him completely.

It's always a bad idea to believe left-wing extremists. Liberals say all sorts of kooky nonsense.

Michael Bell was a 21 year old white kid who was being arrested outside his parent's home (where I believe he still lived) on suspicion of drunk driving. He was pinned face down over the hood of a police car and handcuffed, and then the gun of one of the police officers snagged on the side mirror of the police car. The cop yelled out that the kid was grabbing his gun, and another cop who was aiming his gun at the kid shot him in the head and killed him. The police initially covered the entire incident up, and it took a huge public fight on the part of the family to get the police to own up that it was an unjustified shooting.

Erik Scott was a white CCW holder who had graduated from West Point and had an MBA from Duke University. He was shopping for camping supplies at a Las Vegas Costco when an employee saw he had a holstered gun and confronted him. He told the employee that he had a CCW permit and was allowed to have the gun, and then went back to shopping. The store put in a 911 call saying that they had a guy armed with a gun, acting aggressively and erratically, and was possibly on drugs. The dispatcher had them evacuate the store, and as the police arrived one of the employees started pointing to Erik Scott and yelling that he was the guy. The police thought that the Blackberry in Erik Scott's hand was a gun and they immediately shot him to death.

To this day both Costco and the Las Vegas Police continue to cover up the entire incident, and there has been no independent justice department investigation to get justice for Erik Scott and his family.

Interesting that the police killed this Dallas shooter guy by setting off a pound of C4 next to him.

@oralloy,
I dont know whether they used det cord or just blasting caps but det cord alone woulda killed him. A SST cap woulda really banged him up and have hospital techs picking shardsmout of his face for years.
We use like 90 grain/ft det cord just to blast away mother rock to get to small veins

These guys were out for bear in a hole.

@farmerman,
When I was in Basic, they let me throw a hand grenade, and it was earth shattering. It contained one quarter pound of C-4. A one pound charge sounds more than adequate.

@roger,
Yeah, if the device was detonated at point blank range I'd be surprised if there was much left of the shooter that was recognizable.

Well yes, arousing curiosity or catching the attention would be one way of looking at it, another would be a red-neck-*******-insanely-heavy-handed-jerk-off-reaction (and praying to jesus after).

Orally seem to think when whites are killed it is a police cover up but when blacks are killed they deserved it just because....

Your trivialization of horrible injustices is disgusting.

Deserve it? What nonsense is this?
