    I knew it was going to be a black man targeted.

    The cops don't say shit to repeated questions why he was being arrested. :/

    There are many ways to do it: lack of sleep/lack of judgment/doing drugs, being a cop...

    I assume there were so many officers because someone called them saying someone was wielding weapons in public.

    Reminds me of the story of the guy at Walmart picking up a toy gun and helderly it while he made a phone call. Someone called the police and they went in quite literally guns blazing and killed the man without thinking twice.

    That case still pisses me off. They just turned the corner and fired. The 911 caller also admitted that Crawford never pointrd the weapon at anybody.

    I suppose you would wait to see if the gun was real by letting him shoot you?

    Generally, one can commit either voluntary or involuntary manslaughter. The second is killing somebody via an accident. Voluntary manslaughter can result if they killed someone, but thought (wrongly) that there was a reason to do so.
