"Utah law enforcement manages to find the only African-American boy in the state and intimidate him with the threat of lethal force."

Yes, yes, broflakes, it's hyperbole, but humor often is.

There are big holes in this article.

That kid is HUGE to be a 10 year old.

Did the officer see the boy and THEN pulled his gun? Or was his gun already pulled when he encountered the boy? There's the linchpin. if the former, it's racism. If the latter, he was doing his job.

From the article:

The officer did not activate his body camera during the encounter with DJ.

How convenient.

He's 10? In the officer's defense, the kid looks older than that. I bet he could grow a full beard.

From the video:

The police chief did not interview any of the witnesses, only his fellow officers.

Anyone else have a problem with that?

That's one dumb looking kid.

And no, he's not ten. No way in hell.

Oh boy, more fake 21st century racism to get the Liberals riled up.

""The fact that this police officer still has a job, and they've defended his actions, sends a message that any officer can go out, aim a gun at a 10-year-old kid, and that's OK," Scott said. "And that's not OK to do.""

No, it proves that he is innocent until proven guilty and an investigation will reveal the truth of the situation, and that taking any action before all facts are known is actually an incredibly stupid thing to do and sets a terrible precedent that goes against our Constitutional rights (which is just another example of how Liberals ignore and butcher our rights just as much as they blame Cons for doing the exact same thing).

Why do municipalities even bother with body caneras if they only function according to the whims of the officer?

"No, it proves that he is innocent until proven guilty..."

How much guilt do you expect the chief to find if he only interviews fellow officers?

And don't you find that attitude not only contemptible, but also dangerous?

I live in Salt Lake and can tell you this, do NOT f3k w/ SLC police.

They WILL kill you. Fact. You should check out this one - www.ksl.com

About 20 cops all unloaded their weapons on this guy. It all ended about a block from my house.

Jesus sheeple, an active shooter starts in downtown Salt Lake City, heading more or less South shootings reported at hotels, oncoming cars...WTF do you expect the police to do in that situation? I'm all for peace, love and sharing your joint with me, but the police had a duty to stop this guy. Any investigation should have lasted an hour or two.

"Harold Vincent Robinson, 37, of West Valley City, was shot and killed by police after he crashed his pickup truck at 3339 S. State in South Salt Lake following the series of reported shootings in downtown Salt Lake."

They did their job.

They turned their body cam off and pulled a gun on an unarmed 10 year old.

There are big holes in the article because YOU think he's too big to be ten? Would it make any difference if he were actually fourteen or sixteen?

Article says the cop pulled his gun on the kid. Says he mistook the boy for a potential suspect in which reports said the ethnicity could have been black, Hispanic or Polynesian. Or simply "not white".

Sounds like you're an excellent candidate for a career in law enforcement.

I agree, they did their job. The guy had to be stopped. My only issue is, once he crashed into the sewing shop, was there still a threat?

And if so, ok...I'm still open to neutralizing the threat. But did 19-21 officers all need to unload their entire magazines?

Some of them in the video even reloaded. I'm just saying, it seemed a tad overzealous. They still haven't released the full report of how many shots were fired by police. I'm interested in knowing. BTW...that story COMMANDED KSL for like 3 days.

Different case. I wasn't commenting on the 10 year old, which is hard to huage but includes another report of firearms. I was commenting on a 37 year old active shooter in a car.

Agreed
