At what point do we reinstitute the death penalty because I do not want my tax money going to feed, clothe and house to this subhuman for the next 35 years. Is there any doubt who committed this act? Damn, the guys is clearly video taped in the act of trying to murder a police officer.

This mongrel serves no purpose whatsoever to society, why are we keeping this cancer alive and feeding it? It needs to be chemo-ed out.

What is the argument against that at this point really?

The death penalty is dramatically more expensive than life in prison. Almost twice as much to convict, lengthier trials, more expensive defenders, not to mention all of this with appeals added to it, only to spend almost 100k more a year to keep them alive while we MAYBE get around to killing them this decade. This is all assuming the law is perfect and we don't get the wrong man.

Simple, if there is even the slightest uncertainty that you have the wrong guy take the death penalty off the table. If there is zero doubt as to the guy's guilt then give him express service.

The jews that own the prisons double-bill and make a profit from keeping people in prison. You're right though, a 60 cent bullet would be a lot cheaper. A slit throat would be even better.

Thanks for the link to the article so I could read this:

Smith was fired upon, “not once, not twice, not three times, or four, or five, or six, or seven, but eight times,” said Stone said during closing arguments. Stone placed each of the spent 9 mm casing on the railing at the jury box.

Beautiful closing argument. Probably the only reason he didn't get the needle is because the officer lived.

Just look at the eyes of that nigger. That's a look of a feral animal.

There was nothing wild about any of that. That was cold and calculated.

In your race to engage in inverse virtue signaling, you're removed responsibility from him.

No, it wasn't. That nigger was scared for his life. He acted like any other animal would. The look gave it away. Much like a dog will bite you or a cat will scratch you if you violate their boundaries. The nigger was trying to escape but didn't have enough brain power to figure out how, so he acted on pure instinct.

Let's not give niggers more credit than they deserve. They act on impulse, like animals, unlike for example jews, who calculate their malice for maximum effect.

my bet is protocol dictates to stay and wait for help instead of drive yourself to the hospital.

Props to the bystander who was doing the right thing by keeping the cop calm. Good guy, for sure.

It's worth knowing the context (after a bit of research) that this officer was in Estill, SC, which has a population right under 2k people. I mention that because, while all of us can armchair the fact that escalating force would have been completely justified, we were likely seeing this officer's first call with legitimately hostile suspect. And we also don't know to what he was responding; we can imagine by his behavior that it was put out as something that didn't put him in the mode to treat this guy like the threat he was.

And the reality is that pulling the trigger would likely be a lot harder than we'd like to imagine it, even just in the shoes of being average citizens. Then you have to add to that the various complications added to an officer's life acutely and also in the long-term when that decision is made. Automatic investigation, likely a suspension (hopefully paid, but who knows), all the reporting/paperwork and likely testifying, not to mention the possibility of public scrutiny depending on the circumstances, possible scrutiny from your co-workers and superiors on whether you made the right call, and then the inevitable replaying of the situation and what you coulda/shoulda/woulda.

I love to imagine how easy and without remorse I would remove the life from the body of some asshole like this, but hindsight is 20/20.

Police must be more worried about shooting black suspects now.

Having cops instantly shooting people isn't much better.

Remember, no one makes much of a fuss when cops shoot innocent white dudes.

Not to mention unprofessional. If the man is being put under arrest then the cop should say so, explain specifically what he's being charged with and read him his rights. If he continues to walk away then the cop can do pretty much whatever he likes to stop him short of killing him.

Instead with get this informal series of requests "hey you, come here for a minute," "stop, I'm a... stop" etc. If a cop started acting like that towards me I'd ask him why and continue walking away on principle. Formal arrest exists for a reason, just like formal search warrants do. Cops don't get to just stop people because they feel like it.

The suspect was also wearing a heavy coat. The hooks that attached the taser wires don't have a very good chance of hitting skin if they're wearing something like that. The officer hopefully knew this and was only trying to use the threat of the taser to get the suspect to cooperate. Obviously this didn't happen.

That bystander was the hero in my book. He kept the cop calm, tried to keep that female away and calm.
