    Unless Mr. Ross is an attorney licensed to practice law in Missouri and also one with significant experience in criminal law then he is no more well informed than anyone else.

    There are very well defined arcs concerning the use of force that constrain/compel police officers using force that is not at all like what what common citizens are constrained/compelled to do.

    That 'article' is one uninformed man's opinion. It and five bucks will buy you a beer.

    I don't know if he was wrong or right. I simply don't have enough information.

    Regardless, that article was dumb and didn't shed any light on what actually happened.

    The article isn't dumb. It's simply pointing out that the "unarmed" part of this story is a red herring.

    You mean in your opinion it's a red herring.

    That's what all of us post on this message board, our opinions.

    Guck,

    Your picture is a perfect example of why, maybe not racism, but certainly prejudice, still exists. Without any context, you have deemed this photo to be a negative image because it is of a young, black male holding a firearm, in a private residence no less. Many have voiced a similar tone of this photo, presumably because it paints this young, black male as a "thug," yet, when predominantly white males where showing up at Chipotle's, Wal-Mart's, etc., to protest gun control, they were hailed as heroic patriots standing up to the government to protect their constitutional rights. That is an astonishing double standard.

    You really don't see a difference in context between the two types of photos?

    Yes, one is of a young black male. The others were of mostly white males of varying ages. How is pointing a sidearm into the camera any more or less frightening than a picture of a guy walking into a chipotle with a shotgun or a high caliber rifle slung around his back?

    OK doubters, so if you were the cop and a 6' 4" 290 pound man started whupping your arse and then tried to take your sidearm, what would you have done? In Florida, if you try to take the sidearm of a cop, that is justification for the cop to use deadly force. Don't believe it? I know a cop who works for the Escambia County Sheriff's office who has done it three times in his career in physical altercations with perps.

    Another perspective is the guy with the gun, money and "juice" is trying to emulate a thug, while the guys with guns at Chic-Fil-A are trying to emulate patriots.

    It would not matter one bit how explained it to you, you would not accept the answer,...

    I could...if it hadn't been known for over a week before you posted your photo that it wasn't him.
    But then, ignorance is your strong-point.
