I've said it before: in a sane society a man who puts gangster rims on a Mercedes Benz would never be given the benefit of the doubt as is presently the case with Sir Walter.
And I don't even like cars !
What is even more amazing perhaps is the way the American public responds to these events, goaded on as they are the whole way by a distinctly anti-cop and pro-thug narrative such as the one presented by the Verminous Reality Contortionists at the New York Times.
This is what in the 1985 "Tennesse Vs. Garner" case the United States Supreme Court had to say about the lawful use of lethal force in subduing a fleeing subject :
"[The statute] is not, however, unconstitutional on its face. Where the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a threat of serious physical harm, either to the officer or to others, it is not constitutionally unreasonable to prevent escape by using deadly force. Thus, if the suspect threatens the officer with a weapon or there is probable cause to believe that he has committed a crime involving the infliction or threatened infliction of serious physical harm, deadly force may be used if necessary to prevent escape, and if, where feasible, some warning has been given.”Source
What does this mean? Answer:Officer Slager, who had not had the opportunity to pat Sir Walter down for weapons, could not have known that his traffic stop perp was armed or not. Furthermore, Slager's perp had pretty much given up all his rights by violently attacking a peace officer, and making a run for it to commit what Slager could reasonably assume was another violent encounter with either an innocent civilian or another cop.
Why is the official narrative, as parroted by the repulsive anti-cop, anti-white liars at Amerika's Newspaper of Record, not more along the lines of the famous Chris Rock skit "How Not To Get Your Ass Kicked By The Po-Lice" ? And instead, in furtherance of Al Sharpton's and the Black Grievance Industry's never-ending Dindu defense?
Answer: too sinister to post even on this blog.
Another thing: from "I can't breath" Garner to 1985 Scotus's Garner, why is it that these criminals always seem to have close family relations with other criminals of their ilk ?
How many of you reading here remember the shocking confluence of surnames, when a few years back an angry black murdered 5 Saint Louis (white) City Council members ("Cookie" Thornton), and then just a few months later, another angry black - Omar Thornton - gunned down eight (white) co-workers at a Hartford beer distributor.
Would one not call this a pattern?
Answer: "patterns", like IQ tests, are racist. Step off, nothing to see here peeps.
