No

Because the officers had a reason to, the person either drew a gun or they had a weapon.

Yes

Because more than 8,300 misconduct accusations involving almost 11,000 officers from April 2009 through the end of 2010. 15 percent involved firearms.

DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders, and it would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

@reece - Could you restate that? I am having a problem understanding you, Reece.

@Sciguy So you would consider it once cops start killing black men on the same average. Is that what you were implying? By the way, this poll doesn't bring up race.

I think this is a problem no matter your race. It is also important to bear in mind the class aspect of police shootings. The victims of controversial shootings and most of the unprovoked stop and searches are poor people. Mean while someone who assisted in committing mass fraud gets a massive bonus.

@reece - What I meant is that it is completely alright for an officer to kill a person who is deemed to be a threat to their personal being or to the citizens. Also, I wouldn't consider cops having a life sentence even if they committed an equal amount of slayings of Black men as they do in their own neighborhoods. I would, however, consider it if there was absolute proof of evidence supporting the claim that the murder was conducted in cold blood, out of racial bias and if the victim was innocent- and, albeit, we already do this.

@Sciguy So if they're black, they're a threat? I still don't know how race fits into this.

@reece -- Well, TBH...I was known as Stalin in my college dorm...But that's because I had to tell the guys on choirs for the week to clean the darn dorm every single day LOL.

How can anyone seriously refuse due process to a criminal in custody? No matter the crime, every American deserves to have their rights respected. Even the Boston Bombers, Charles Manson, Jeffery Dahmer, etc. got due process.
