I know most of us hate reddit, but a guy over there went and analysed the video. The guy was told not to grab the gun of the officer, and right before he was shot there is a scene where it looks like he grabbed the officers gun.

This looks less like police brutality and more likely like a justified shooting.

As if facts matter anymore. I'm calling it, there will be riots just like Ferguson.

In Ferguson, there were riots because of they systematic abuse done by police. People don't riot over one dead body.

With the LAPD, They have a bad reputation because of things in the 80s and 90s (not saying they haven't done crappy things since then) but they have been better in recent years.

This isn't the same environment as Ferguson, and as long as people don't go in trying to polarize this situation everything will be peaceful.

No doubt this will be spun as another "hate crime" (whatever that means nowadays) by Sharpton & co. and be used to fuel more riots of emotionally fueled dindus.

We were told as children that if something's wrong find a police officer, we were lied to.
