I'm surprised this kid is still alive this morning.

Typically you have to have to be armed to the teeth and have shot 3 cops to get them to show any restraint.

Oh, and be white.

He will find a job at another LEO agency. They always do.

They let him resign instead of firing his ass, allowing him to maintain a hire-able reputation in another area. Predictable.

I would resign too. You weren't meant to be a cop, mister. As an old soldier, I have to tell you that you have to look at the whole person before you draw.

Omg the video.... This is a very conservative portrait of the events.

I am also surprised they didn't gun him down.

That cop probably already has a job as a cop in a different town.

Anyone who picks up trash needs to be awarded, not threatened with execution.

Smart cops know that guys like Atkinson know the neighborhood, care about it, and know all the thugs and those who don't belong, and they will give this info to the police when asked. Dumb cops have a hard time finding a Dunkin'. They will make mass arrests, just to get something to stick on anyone they pick up. The police have a hard job, one for which they get little respect and appreciation, thanks to Jerky Boy, who would probably pull his rod on his mother, if Moms looked a bit shady...
