Surveillance video shows a Milwaukee store owner fighting off an invasion by three armed burglars that smashed a secured door with a stolen van and then attempted to break in through a broken gate. The incident happened earlier this month at Bouchard's. Owner Rami Murrar saw the break-in attempt, grabbed a rifle and fired several shots. Suspect Deishun Byrd-Mcway, 21, was hit several times and taken to a hospital. "Rami is not going to let them chase him out. His store has security 24 hours a day, and they're going to defend themselves and their property and their employees," said his attorney, John Schiro. read more

A man was shot by police early Wednesday in the Englewood neighborhood after he pointed a gun at officers when he moved away from a crowd gathered there and officers told him to stop, police said.

About 1:40 a.m., officers on patrol saw a large crowd in the street in the 5600 block of South Morgan Street, according to a news release from the Chicago Police Department.

"Y'all going to stereotype the f--- out of him," said a man in a White Sox cap. "Y'all got Tasers, for what? Y'all got mace, for what?"

The crowd slowly grew smaller, but the man in the White Sox cap and the man in the blue shirt remained.

"Y'all shot first!" shouted the man in the blue shirt. read more

Kyaruzi snatched the flag and proceeded to flee. Realizing that Kyaruzi stole his flag, Miller chased Kyaruzi down, running him over at an intersection. read more


as words do hold meaning

Laws are written so that they cannot be misinterpreted. They are written by the people, for the people and apply to all people. Stop implies one ceases the action they are currently engaged in at that moment. Not 20 minutes later. Not 10 blocks away. I have never heard a rape victim ask her attacker to "stop when your done". Stop signs mean to stop at the designated spot.

is doing something violent
No. People do violent things on a daily basis, without harming others. When those actions do put other lives at danger, however, the situation and response changes. Running from the police implies a disregard for public safety and the law. How many accidents have been caused by people running from the police? And in cases where the police chose not pursue the suspects, out of concern for public safety, there have been cases where the suspects proceed to murder/ rob/ rape again. So in effect people want to decriminalize running from the police and failing to comply with police orders.

The current atmosphere of "ebil police killing people who didnt do nothing" is gonna come back years from now to bite the public in the ass. You will see a drop in hiring good, educated officers (because its racists to pick the ones with the highest qualifications) and who in their right mind would want to have a job where you could be prosecuted for murder for something(as in Baltimore, where 3 of the officers charged were no where near the van). We will have a populace that feels that it can interpret the law and drive away when it feels like. SCOTUS decisions and state codes will no longer be valid, always trumped by feels and what people know of the law.
Notice how the girl filming knows so much about the laws that she tells the police officer that the driver does not need a license?

We have already seen the media jump on the ratings bandwagon and publish whatever story they feel will gain the most outrage and upboats and likes. "Hands up dont shoot" and doctoring the GZ 911 call are examples. You will see more of this.

And for the prosecutor to go and taint a potential jury pool with his comments, that is just setting the case up for a mistrial. "He wasnt dragged". I wonder if he watched the same video.


Note the position of the truck, the pothole and the silver car in the foreground. Even my 12yr old managed to point that out when watching the video, without my help.

From caselaw.findlaw.com

1. The order to get out of the car, issued after the respondent was lawfully detained, was reasonable and thus permissible under the Fourth Amendment. The State's proffered justification for such order - the officer's safety - is both legitimate and weighty, and the intrusion into respondent's personal liberty occasioned by the order, being at most a mere inconvenience, cannot prevail when balanced against legitimate concerns for the officer's safety.

Texas has in its code "lawful order". Refusing to comply with said lawful order is in itself an arrest able offense. Refusing the arrest on that charge is resisting arrest.

The exact code has been put on other threads.



You can read the whole thread yourself Sammy. You yourself commented in the 1st thread.
