Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 15, 2019

Franklin reached his right hand toward a pocket and pulled out a gun by the barrel. He appeared to be lowering the weapon when Kerl fired two shots, the video shows. Kerl is standing less than a car-length away from Franklin. Moments after being shot, Franklin turns his face toward the officers and can be heard saying: "You told me to......" The video cuts off seconds later, after his body slumps over.

I just say on the interwebs where a cop posted "How's it feel after demanding bodycams it show all cops are honest?"

"Kerl's body cam shows that she and another officer instructed Franklin to put the gun down more than 15 times in the roughly 40 seconds before he was shot. In that span, the gun is not visible in the video."

Yeah, that video is sort of ambiguous. That's enough time to think of using your taser, also. She may have over-reacted, but it's hard to tel:: estrogen can do that to women. We need to check for PMS. That could be important in court.

Nixon, it takes them five minutes to change their mind. This was forty seconds. No blame.

Chalk up another "defensive use of handguns" for the gun death cult.

I thought there was a 2nd amendment right? Apparently not.

If you lower your gun, you're a bad guy. Apparently.

The cops are murderers. He was not aiming the gun. Ya, a Taser would have worked fine.

You do not react to a lethal threat with a non lethal one. WTF are you thinking?

How many times was he told to put the gun down? He did not put the gun down until he was killed.

That the Second Amendment grants us the right to bear arms.

Oh no! If only there were some kind of warning that let us know how your odds of being shot increase with gun ownership! Oh No!
