As I was reading this, all that I could really do is laugh. For the simple fact of why would you do something like this? There was not a great deal of information that came along with this article, but from what I read, the officers’ actions were pointless and his motives and reasoning were not mentioned. This is something that has to be embarrassing for Carr, but without knowing his intentions as to why he would shoot his own car and call for help its hard to make or pass judgment on the incident.
This is a topic that really rubbed me the wrong way. Not only the fact that I am a African American man, but the fact that this seems to be the new trend when it come to police shooting young men of the African American community. Do to the fact that something similar just happened to Trayvon Martin, and then now this is mind-blowing to me. Of course I was not there and do not know exactly what happen between the two men, but I do not believe that there is any excuse to have to shoot an unarmed man to death. There is nothing that I can think of that will ever justify that. Especially taking into consideration how old Mike Brown was. Now on top of that there is no criminal action tat is being taking place to have the officer serve time for his crime is horrible. Now there’s a family out there that just lost their baby boy and there is no justice being served for them, which I couldn’t even imagine going through. Based on everything that has been going on lately with the justice system and letting all these cops get off with no consequence is definitely something that needs to change. They are held to a higher standard in the community and should know how to handle situations in ways that don’t end lives.
Two people were shot yesterday afternoon by a Columbus police officer who opened fire after a door was slammed on his hand at a South Side home. Brian Bates, 44, was charged tonight with felony assault on a police officer, whose name hasn’t yet been released. Police say that Bates pinned the officer’s hand in the door. Police haven’t yet released the name of the 23-year-old woman who also was shot. She was not charged.
I definitely do not like situation such as this one. When it comes to my point of view of the situation, I definitely do agree that the cop was in a vulnerable situation to the point where firing his gun was necessary because you never know what is on the other side of the door, and also based on the actions of the man who slammed the officers hand in the door. The only thing that caught my eye in the situation was the fact that there was nine bullets found in the house from the gun. Taking into consideration that I was not in the situation and have no idea how I would react, it is hard for me to come to a conclusion if that is excessive shooting. Based on what I know I do believe that the officer was in a position to shoot to kill and that may not have been his motive, but at the same time he was most likely shooting until his hand was released, which I can understand, especially if the officer had to go to the hospital to check if he had a broken hand. I do feel bad for the woman that was shot by the stray bullet just do to being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although she might have been the lady, that the police were flagged down about, she still did not deserve to get shot. At the end of the day I’m just happy that everyone is okay.
I definitely think that this is a great idea for the simple fact that it wont portray a child’s image early in their life as someone negative. We are all human and we all make mistakes, and hopefully this changes the future mistakes in a child’s near future. The way I can see this back firing is that kids will end up committing more low offense crimes without the fear of the law. That is my only knock on this issue, but my personal opinion is that low offense crimes shouldn’t send children to courthouses anyway unless it is a continuous thing. There are many pros and cons that come along with the “school to prison” practice, but there’s nothing wrong with giving it a shot to lower it and seeing where it goes from there. Hopefully it works out for the better.
After reading this article and understanding the importance of the day, I do not believe that it was okay for him to miss the ceremony taking into consideration his rank as a officer and the what he stands for. Although there were comments that supported each side of the argument, I think it was not a good thing for him to miss out on the ceremony. It’s an important day that I know he did not forget about. Therefore there is no excuse for missing it beside a family emergency, but that definitely was not the case.
After reading this article, I do not believe that there is any type of remorse for his actions at all. I don’t expect him to just have a sob story and apologize to the family every chance he gets, but for him to truly believe that he did nothing wrong is a little obscured. He took the life of a young man that was unarmed and as a trained police officer; I know that he did not have to shoot to kill Mike Brown. Looking at the fact that he would want to resign for the safety of the his fellow officers does make sense, but at this point I d not think it makes a difference if you look at all the horrible actions taking place by the people of Fergusson.
The Los Angeles Police Department said Tuesday it ha selected Taser International to supply body-worn cameras for officers, following a months long field evaluation of several models from different manufacturers.
This topic was a bit interesting to me and I wish that there were a little more detail. I personally believe that this will be a good idea, just to monitor the use of the Taser and to also protect an officer in regards to be accused of using the Taser for an unnecessary reason. Also to protect the people who actually do get tased when its not a valid reason nor situation to. I am a big fan of cameras when it comes to anything having to do with the justice system, because people tend to lie at times, but cameras never do.
Not coming from a bias standpoint at all but I do not see the problem that marijuana can have, that would stand as something that is worst than alcohol. Therefore I do not see the problem with legalizing marijuana. There are much more things going on in the world that is way more important to focus on. Along side of that, do to the fact that marijuana is so popular in the world today, it is not a drug that is hard to come across and partake in using regardless if it were legal or not. In other cases I do although I do feel as if there are people that would benefit from legalization based on their medical history and the fact that it is a drug that can be beneficial in curing what even the medical problem is with a certain individual. Referring to my person experience and upbringing, there have been plenty of times when I was in high school in which that marijuana was presented to me. I personally do not smoke, but I do have friends that are heavy smokers and it was no problem for them to get their hands on marijuana at any moment. I say this because like I stated above whether it is legal or not, it is going to be used by those who have a habit or just feel like partaking in smoking weed.
“While 70 percent of Americans approve of corporal punishment,” wrote sociologist Michael Eric Dyson for the New York Times on Wednesday, “black Americans have a distinct history with the subject. Beating children has been a depressingly familiar habit in black families since our arrival in the New World.” Dyson was...
Taking into consideration that growing up his was something I see as a normal form of discipline, I do not see the big issue with this problem, unless it is taken over board. I hate the term “beating” because it sounds as if it is something that different than a spanking. I do not understand why this had to be an issue of race as well. There are plenty of different racial groups that go about disciplining in this fashion.
When it comes to this topic and issue, I first off would to comment that this is not right by any stretch of the imagination. Especially, the fact that he is an officer and is held to a higher standard than the average individual. I am definitely somewhat confused about the situation because to my knowledge I thought that police cars are closely monitored and on the other hand I don’t understand why her friend didn’t see that what was going on was not right. At the same time I was not there in the situation so I don’t exactly know the officers body language or how he was conducting his self throughout the whole situation. I just ultimately feel really bad for the victim and I hope justice gets served for the actions taken place by the officer.
