Videos of Jayland Walker Shooting by Police Raise More Questions

Mr. Walker’s family urged calm as protests continued in Akron, Ohio.

This isn’t 2020 when Trump was President, this is 2022 when Biden will get blamed for riots. So knock it off.

Officers Shot Unarmed Black Man More Than 60 Times, Police Say

The police chief in Akron, Ohio, said Jayland Walker was fatally shot by officers after fleeing a traffic stop. The police reported gunfire from Mr. Walker’s vehicle after attempting to pull him over but confirmed he was unarmed at the time he was chased on foot and killed.

By Daniel McGraw and Luke Vander Ploeg
July 3, 2022

AKRON, Ohio — A 25-year-old Black man who was killed last week by police officers in Akron, Ohio, suffered more than 60 gunshot wounds but was unarmed at the time, the police chief said Sunday.

That detail was among the facts that began to emerge

The reporters are proud that they managed to find and emphasize a Narrative-Affirming detail amidst all the Narrative-Subverting facts of the case.

in the killing of the man, Jayland Walker, who died last Monday after fleeing the police during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop.

It’s almost as if cops have a reason for being antsy during routine traffic stops.

At a news conference on Sunday, the police released body camera videos of the pursuit and shooting that showed officers’ actions but deepened many questions around his death, which remains under investigation.

Mr. Walker had one traffic ticket and no criminal record. The police said they initially sought to pull him over for an equipment violation and a traffic violation.

Eight officers who were directly involved in the shooting have been placed on administrative leave according to department policy, the police said.

Following the release of the videos, hundreds of protesters marched in downtown Akron, demanding justice for Mr. Walker and decrying police violence, as Mr. Walker’s family urged the community to remain peaceful.

In one video, a popping sound can be heard at one point, and an officer reports gunfire coming from the door of Mr. Walker’s car. The shot itself is not visible from the footage, but during the news conference, footage from outside the car was shown that seemed to capture a muzzle flash coming from Mr. Walker’s driver’s side door.

The police said during the news conference that a handgun was later found in Mr. Walker’s car and that a bullet casing was found where they said he fired and that it was consistent with the weapon found in Mr. Walker’s vehicle. A still photo released by the police showed a handgun on the seat, along with a gold ring. Mr. Walker’s girlfriend died recently in a car accident.

We have to do something about all these black folks dying in traffic accidents like persuading the cops to pull them over less for their bad driving. Oh, wait, the big surge in black traffic fatalities since George Floyd’s death hasn’t been worked into The Narrative yet, so Never Mind.

Bobby DiCello, a lawyer for the Walker family, said Mr. Walker had only recently obtained the gun. “Jayland was not familiar with firearms, and we do not know if it accidentally fired,” he said. “But police did find no bullets in the handgun when they found it in the car after his death.”

In the news conference, the police did not address whether the handgun in the car was unloaded but said there was a loaded magazine on the seat.

As the chase continued, the footage shows an officer saying that Mr. Walker’s car is slowing down. Seconds later, Mr. Walker, wearing a ski mask, exits the vehicle and begins to flee on foot.

The chase was brief, and footage appears to show a number of officers pursuing Mr. Walker, weapons drawn, into a nearby parking lot while shouting at him. Police officers had initially deployed Tasers but were unsuccessful, the police said. A few seconds later, the officers open fire, and Mr. Walker drops to the ground.

Stephen L. Mylett, the Akron police chief, said he wasn’t sure how many total shots had been fired at Mr. Walker. He could not confirm the exact number of bullets that struck him (though he cited the wounds reported by the medical examiner), but he anticipated the number would be “very high.”

Stephen L. Mylett, the Akron police chief, said he wasn’t sure how many shots were fired at Mr. Walker, but he anticipated the number would be “very high.”

When cops get into gun battles with ski-mask wearing desperadoes, why don’t they just do what President Biden tells them and shoot them once in the leg?

Seriously, it sounds like a suicide-by-cop by a man depressed by his girlfriend’s traffic accident death with some planning for a ghetto lottery payout to his heirs. Shooting at the cops is sure to put them on hair-trigger alert, but then leaving the gun in the car so he can get the phrase “unarmed Black man” in the headlines increases the chances of 7 figure settlement.

Here’s the cops’ version:

  5. I know that I’m preaching to the choir here, but I need to boil this down to its essence just to be clear…

    – Police make a “routine” traffic stop of car driven by a VBIPOC

    – Gunfire from the car so VBIPOC obviously has a gun

    – VBIPOC takes off running in a ski mask

    – Police try to get VBIPOC with the taser and it doesn’t work

    – ?????

    – Cops pump VBIPOC full of lead

    – A gun is found in the car later with a loaded magazine next to it and a spent shell casing and no one disputes that the gun belonged to the VBIPOC

    – Nonetheless, “many” “questions” about the shooting are “deepened” now that we have a video of the incident of cops shooting an unarmed VBIPOC..

    Do I have that right?

    I have to say, taking the mag out of the gun and leaving it there while you make a run for it is brilliant service to the narrative: the gun wasn’t loaded and the suspect was unarmed when he was shot, so naturally the story is about racist cops.

    Just totally brilliant. Give him a posthumous award of some kind for his service to the press.

    From the first bodycam it looked like a good shooting. The perp was believed to be armed and was fleeing, then he seemed to turn on the cop.

    The problem was that every single one of the eight (or however many) cops all had the same reaction -- which was to empty their clips on the guy. So it looks like a lot of overkill, including after he was already down.

    Once the guy has been shot, should it matter if his dead body is riddled with extra bullets? Logically, no. But the optics aren't good.

    I guess when the adrenaline kicks in these guys can't stop shooting. I wonder if that's how they are trained.

    Black perps (Black!) in car chases usually surrender peacefully. Backwards.

    They leap out and run as fast as they can (pretty fast, often!) while discarding their weapons as they go.

    Sometimes they surrender so fast the po-po can't catch 'em.

    Other times, if they were shootin' at squirrels near the cop cars (okay, that's a "mistake'), they are riddled with bullets.

    It is hard to hit a moving target with a pistol, under stressful situations. Look at how few block party attendees die after some vibrant gun play for disrespectin' !

    Surrendering while running furiously and fast away from authorities is a time honored Bantu custom. That's why African cops carry carbines.

  7. I no longer want to channel Kipling and “Take up the white man’s burden”.

    If blacks think it’s peachy to blow off police stops and trade a little gunfire–have at it.

    But in their neighborhoods, not mine.

    What I want is conservative politicians who will point this out”: There can only be one–one–set of common public norms. I was born in America and I expect to live in a community with standard American (Western Christian civilization) norms. There’s another hundred million other Americans who feel more or less the same. If various whiny minorities are unhappy with those norms … fine. (I have no wish to impose mine upon them.) We can have separate communities or go all out and have separate nations. But my people want–and deserve to have–civilization. Our civilization. You don’t like it–f’off.

    That’s the messaging necessary. The only messaging from a “conservative” that’s worth hearing.

    It spills over into White communities. Allowing unpatrolled Bantustans to pockmark every American city will only hasten the cities' total destruction - and spill into the suburbs and countryside as well.

    Blacks have to be patrolled in the short term and separation is required in the long term. They eventually have to on the other side of a policed and fortified border.

    I always wear a ski mask when I am in Ohio in late June. It’s true that Ohio is awfully flat and usually hot in June, but nowadays with climate change, you never know when a ski mountain might spring up overnight and you wouldn’t want to get frostbite. If I kept the ski mask on the seat or in my pocket, I might forget to wear it, so I just wear it at all times.

    The original taser (as seen in the Dirty Harry sequel) worked fine, but its company failed, and it got bought out by an inferior competitor. The present iteration needs unrealistic distance to build up energy. Cops either ignore that or simply cannot provide it. The guy you want to tase tends to neither stand still nor keep the manufacturer-mandated distance.

    Akron traffic ordinance:

    When discharging your firearm from your vehicle on a city street, you must first roll down your driver side window (fully) and slow down to 10 MPH. Cartridge casings must not be ejected in a manner which endangers pedestrians or cyclists or stray dogs.

    Violators are subject to a $500 fine and/or permanent removal from the city limits.

  17. Smokes! Those cops really turned Mr. Walker into a sieve.

    I’m down on black criminality, but all that gunfire seems excessive, though it did get the job done.

  18. Most street cops have horrible gun discipline. It sure sounds to me like the Walker shooting was justified, but 60+ hits is WAY too excessive when you consider how many rounds must have missed. I’d be willing to bet they fired at LEAST triple that number.

    Cops tend to pop off like drunken cowboys any time they think they might have a reason to shoot. There was a case in Cleveland a few years back when a car two blacks were driving backfired. Thinking they were getting shot at, the cops went on a wild chase, shooting over 100 rounds and ending the chase by standing on the hood of the car, shooting 25 rounds each into the driver and the passenger through the windshield. Both turned out to be unarmed.

    Oops!

    Liberals are fond of saying that “nobody needs” high-capacity magazines and “assault weapons.” If that’s true, then start by prohibiting the cops from having them.

    Restrict all cops to .38 revolvers and pump-action shotguns and they might be more judicious about how often they pull the trigger. I know blacks are dangerous but if the cops can’t stop one with less than 60 rounds they need a new career.

    No, dum dum.

    A hard-won lesson learned by North Hollywood Police is they must be armed to answer most contingencies.

    In any extistential contest with criminals, police lives always come first.

    Once a police officer is compelled to believe his life is in mortal danger, he can unload his weapon of all bullets at his discretion. Your sense of propriety is based on movies, not real life. Real life can carry dire consequences for police officers, who have a right to not be shot by a gin-wielding criminal at all times.

    Years ago a book that I read on pistol shooting (published in the early 1990s) suggested that police might be better off with five-shot .44 Special revolvers than with high capacity 9mm or .40 S&W automatic pistols. With a revolver and five shots they would be more likely to get a sight picture and squeeze the trigger rather than "hosing" a target. When excited, shooters sometimes just fire shots downrange until the magazine is expended and hope for the best. But I think that ship has sailed. I'm also surprised at the popularity of the AR-15 platform versus the 12 gauge shotgun.

    My view is that once the shooting begins the objective is to stop the threat. This means making sure they pose no danger to you. The idea of counting shots is ludicrous, if you live you’re lucky, that’s it.

    The only thing that needs to be adjudicated is whether the shooting was justified in the first place. A shot count serves to inflame those who want to be inflamed.

    With the old-style PPC ("practical pistol course") training they did lose
    quite a few officers while reholstering after having hit once (not good
    policy with a .38 and a doped-up jogger, especially at short range) as they had
    trained countless times to do (at longer ranges their training proved superior
    but you shouldn´t use a pistol for that) so now they are trained to keep
    firing until the target is neutralized.

    The earliest articles I read didn't mention a wife or girlfriend, but when I saw the gold wedding band next to the handgun, my immediate thought was did he just lose his wife? Grief suicide by cop. And if he was in the vehicle or driving the vehicle during the accident that killed her . . . Guilt and grief suicide by cop.

    The shooting - 8 cops simultaneously perceived a threat (ski-masked fugitive who had fired a weapon at least once during the car chase of which they all would have been aware via their radios) and fired until the threat ended.

    Sounds like he was unfamiliar with the manual of arms for the gun and accidentally ejected the mag, probably while trying to manipulate the safety. First shot might have even been a nd and he ejected the mag in a panic but it was too late by then. Does not strike me as intentional

    I always wear a ski mask when I am in Ohio in late June. It's true that Ohio is awfully flat and usually hot in June, but nowadays with climate change, you never know when a ski mountain might spring up overnight and you wouldn't want to get frostbite. If I kept the ski mask on the seat or in my pocket, I might forget to wear it, so I just wear it at all times.

    Most street cops have horrible gun discipline. It sure sounds to me like the Walker shooting was justified, but 60+ hits is WAY too excessive when you consider how many rounds must have missed. I'd be willing to bet they fired at LEAST triple that number.

    Cops tend to pop off like drunken cowboys any time they think they might have a reason to shoot. There was a case in Cleveland a few years back when a car two blacks were driving backfired. Thinking they were getting shot at, the cops went on a wild chase, shooting over 100 rounds and ending the chase by standing on the hood of the car, shooting 25 rounds each into the driver and the passenger through the windshield. Both turned out to be unarmed.

    Oops!

    Liberals are fond of saying that "nobody needs" high-capacity magazines and "assault weapons." If that's true, then start by prohibiting the cops from having them.

    A hard-won lesson learned by North Hollywood Police is they must be armed to answer most contingencies.

    In any extistential contest with criminals, police lives always come first.

    Once a police officer is compelled to believe his life is in mortal danger, he can unload his weapon of all bullets at his discretion. Your sense of propriety is based on movies, not real life. Real life can carry dire consequences for police officers, who have a right to not be shot by a gin-wielding criminal at all times.

    They train them to wait until they see a weapon so there isn't a repeat of the NY wallet incident.

    They don't train them to stand as a group and unload into a body on the ground.

    Nothing good will come from this.

    Taking one thug off the street won't do anything. There is always another one to take his place. The system is what needs to change.

    A bad shooting like this will just lead to some innocent White being killed in a mostly peaceful protest. That of course that will just be a "random" incident that goes unreported in the media.

    The original taser (as seen in the Dirty Harry sequel) worked fine, but its company failed, and it got bought out by an inferior competitor.

    @J.Ross

    The original TASER used a gunpowder propellant and the current one uses compressed nitrogen so I assume the muzzle velocity is lower, maybe less ability to penetrate clothing, etc. (also less ability for the darts to penetrate your vital organs and kill you).

    I don't think distance has much to do with it - once the probes leave the barrel they can only de-accelerate, not "build up energy" regardless of the propellant. Nor does the electrical energy in the wires depend on distance. The only fly in the ointment is that the two probes have to land at least 4 inches apart for them to work but the spread is 12 inches for every 7 feet so unless you are closer than a little over 2 feet it should work. Of course if you are wrassling with a perp you might be closer than 2 feet. (Conversely, if you are much beyond 7 feet one or both of the probes might miss even if your aim is true.)

    The bottom line is that no one has really come up with a perfect non-lethal weapon (and probably given the legal environment and Taser's monopoly dominance of the market, there are many who are afraid to try even though the reward would be potentially large).

    Add to this the fact that many perps today have guns and you have the old maxim that you should never bring a Taser to a gunfight.

    - VBIPOC takes off running in a ski mask

    - Police try to get VBIPOC with the taser and it doesn't work

    - ?????

    - Cops pump VBIPOC full of lead

    - A gun is found in the car later with a loaded magazine next to it and a spent shell casing and no one disputes that the gun belonged to the VBIPOC

    - Nonetheless, "many" "questions" about the shooting are "deepened" now that we have a video of the incident of cops shooting an unarmed VBIPOC..

    Do I have that right?

    I have to say, taking the mag out of the gun and leaving it there while you make a run for it is brilliant service to the narrative: the gun wasn't loaded and the suspect was unarmed when he was shot, so naturally the story is about racist cops.

    It's as good a theory as any, and maybe that is a school of thought in the VBIPOC community, but the premise is 100% wrong if that's what they really think. I'm not saying it never happens, but someone giving himself up and laying face down on the pavement is very unlikely to get shot compared to the result of putting on a ski mask and making a run for it.

    All of which means, that it's still not the cops' fault if he ends up dead after trying to run away; it's the fault of the fools who convinced him that it's the only available option to possibly save his own life.

    I read that he had no record, but that the car had been used in a felony crime the day before.
     
    Not having a record doesn't mean that he hasn't committed crimes, especially now with Soros prosecutors deciding not to prosecute crimes and consequently police deciding to not bother running people in. I don't know how Akron is on that score.

    That was a reckless and unnecessary volley of shots.
     
    Are they supposed to all talk and agree on who is going to take the shot if he turns and prepares to shoot? And would shooting him dead with one shot make him less dead than 60 shots? You're definitely one of the people swayed by optics more than reality, and that's probably the majority view. Which is why these cops are likely screwed.

    Also, since it was night and he was wearing a ski mask, I doubt they could have known he was one of those whose "life matters."

    You're adopting the negro grievance narrative that when a guy who shot from the car and then fled cops was himself shot in turn that there is some controversy.

    Sixty shots fired by eight officers is under three 3 shot bursts per officer. Iron sights at night, moving target moving away from the shooter. You're basically one step away from the mongoloids who ask "why couldn't they just shoot the gun out of his hand/shoot him in the leg?"

    Yes, we understand that guns can be dangerous and fired bullets have a way of finding non-intentional targets. That's why it's good to get an armed Junior gangbanger like Walker off of the streets.

    I know that I'm preaching to the choir here, but I need to boil this down to its essence just to be clear...

    - Police make a "routine" traffic stop of car driven by a VBIPOC

    - Gunfire from the car so VBIPOC obviously has a gun

    - VBIPOC takes off running in a ski mask

    - Police try to get VBIPOC with the taser and it doesn't work

    - ?????

    - Cops pump VBIPOC full of lead

    - A gun is found in the car later with a loaded magazine next to it and a spent shell casing and no one disputes that the gun belonged to the VBIPOC

    - Nonetheless, "many" "questions" about the shooting are "deepened" now that we have a video of the incident of cops shooting an unarmed VBIPOC..

    Do I have that right?

    I have to say, taking the mag out of the gun and leaving it there while you make a run for it is brilliant service to the narrative: the gun wasn't loaded and the suspect was unarmed when he was shot, so naturally the story is about racist cops.

    From the first bodycam it looked like a good shooting. The perp was believed to be armed and was fleeing, then he seemed to turn on the cop.

    The problem was that every single one of the eight (or however many) cops all had the same reaction -- which was to empty their clips on the guy. So it looks like a lot of overkill, including after he was already down.

    Once the guy has been shot, should it matter if his dead body is riddled with extra bullets? Logically, no. But the optics aren't good.

    trained countless times to do (at longer ranges their training proved superior
    but you shouldn´t use a pistol for that) so now they are trained to keep
    firing until the target is neutralized.

    Jayland Walker seems to have been a friendly guy with an even disposition who lettered in wrestling and cross country. The Akron Beacon-Journal‘s backgrounder. His fiancee is reported to have died last month in a car accident — that could have been the catalyst for (per Steve in the OP) what looks like a Death of Despair not Exuberance.

    The girlfriend’s name is being withheld. I hope that’s the mainstream affording some privacy to her grieving family, a decent thing to do. Alternatively, in a week or two there could be a leak of some Breonna Tayloresque details at odds with the Narrative.

    Again per Steve: if Walker was white, this likely Suicide By Cop story wouldn’t have traveled beyond WKYC 3 News At Eleven.

Maybe it's due to the legacy of slavery and racism, blah, blah, blah but it's absolutely true that the instinct of many blacks is to take off like a rocket (or sometimes fight like hell) rather than submit to the police, where a white lowlife under similar circumstances might reason that while going to jail is not great (and yes, he was going to jail regardless of his heretofore clean record, with a car used in a felony and a ski mask and a gun in his possession), running from or trying to fight the cops is not likely to end well either so giving up may be the best of your bad choices. In fact his clean record may have hurt him in this case because he didn't have experience with being in custody and didn't understand that it's not the end of the world.

    It’s as good a theory as any, and maybe that is a school of thought in the VBIPOC community, but the premise is 100% wrong if that’s what they really think. I’m not saying it never happens, but someone giving himself up and laying face down on the pavement is very unlikely to get shot compared to the result of putting on a ski mask and making a run for it.

    All of which means, that it’s still not the cops’ fault if he ends up dead after trying to run away; it’s the fault of the fools who convinced him that it’s the only available option to possibly save his own life.

    Do young children have tantrums on purpose?

    Young children don’t plan to frustrate or embarrass their parents. For most toddlers, tantrums are a way to express frustration. For older children, tantrums might be a learned behavior. If you reward tantrums with something your child wants — or you allow your child to get out of things by throwing a tantrum — the tantrums are likely to continue.
    END QUOTE

    The tantrums these people throw is a learned behavior. They’ve learned that their tantrums, however stupid, get rewarded with attention, sympathy, and eventually some gibs.

    The solution, as with toddlers, is to stop rewarding the tantrums. We need to tell them that we expect them to act like responsible adults instead of like emotionally disturbed children or a pack of agitated baboons.

    They’re collectively capable of better behavior, but why would they behave reasonably if they get rewarded for acting like this?

    The original taser (as seen in the Dirty Harry sequel) worked fine, but its company failed, and it got bought out by an inferior competitor. The present iteration needs unrealistic distance to build up energy. Cops either ignore that or simply cannot provide it. The guy you want to tase tends to neither stand still nor keep the manufacturer-mandated distance.

    Replies: @Redneck farmer, @Jack D

    The original TASER used a gunpowder propellant and the current one uses compressed nitrogen so I assume the muzzle velocity is lower, maybe less ability to penetrate clothing, etc. (also less ability for the darts to penetrate your vital organs and kill you).

    I don’t think distance has much to do with it – once the probes leave the barrel they can only de-accelerate, not “build up energy” regardless of the propellant. Nor does the electrical energy in the wires depend on distance. The only fly in the ointment is that the two probes have to land at least 4 inches apart for them to work but the spread is 12 inches for every 7 feet so unless you are closer than a little over 2 feet it should work. Of course if you are wrassling with a perp you might be closer than 2 feet. (Conversely, if you are much beyond 7 feet one or both of the probes might miss even if your aim is true.)

    The bottom line is that no one has really come up with a perfect non-lethal weapon (and probably given the legal environment and Taser’s monopoly dominance of the market, there are many who are afraid to try even though the reward would be potentially large).

    Add to this the fact that many perps today have guns and you have the old maxim that you should never bring a Taser to a gunfight.

    No, it's that resisting arrest and running from police has a rational upside - plenty of times you have a fat cop or a cop punching a clock for retirement or a cop who is wary of being the next most famous white man in America and you successfully flee, find a safe place to hide out and you get away with whatever crime you were suspected of committing (or without having been searched for evidence of another crime). It's just that the upside comes with a rather large downside if you fail - the charges will be more severe and more will be added on, and you've just escalated the situation to one in which getting seriously injured or killed is much more likely. Plenty of black kids just grew up running from cops as a manner of course and it doesn't change when the clock strikes 12 on their eighteenth birthdays.

    This might have changed a bit with the advent of body cameras - the low motivation cops now have some degree of accountability and need to be seen making some good faith effort to get the collar. Ironic, since early "criminal justice reform" demands included compulsory use of body cameras. Now we have loads of video evidence of blacks behaving badly and getting themselves into enormous trouble, and so the narratives change to suppressing material facts revealed in the camera footage.

    Most street cops have horrible gun discipline. It sure sounds to me like the Walker shooting was justified, but 60+ hits is WAY too excessive when you consider how many rounds must have missed. I'd be willing to bet they fired at LEAST triple that number.

    Cops tend to pop off like drunken cowboys any time they think they might have a reason to shoot. There was a case in Cleveland a few years back when a car two blacks were driving backfired.

    Liberals are fond of saying that "nobody needs" high-capacity magazines and "assault weapons." If that's true, then start by prohibiting the cops from having them.

    Restrict all cops to .38 revolvers and pump-action shotguns and they might be more judicious about how often they pull the trigger. I know blacks are dangerous but if the cops can't stop one with less than 60 rounds they need a new career.

    You run into the problem though of when they need to hose the target. A shooter using a vehicle for cover for example. Or when they need to disable a vehicle.

    Even in rural areas they occasionally run into some thug from the city that shoots it out. Definitely a bad situation for a revolver.

    I live in rural America and a few years ago we had some thug come through on a crime spree. Killed a teller even though she complied. Awful.

    It's because of the spread and limited range of the 12 gauge. Yes they are devastating at close range but anyone taking two shots of 223 point blank is going to drop.

    The less lethal 12 gauge rounds also lost their popularity. The departments are afraid of the police losing their nerve and putting in the wrong shells by accident. This video proves the concern is valid.

    People of all shapes and sizes just shoot semiautomatics better - they manage recoil better, and a Glock is a very simple tool. Remember, Police Departments have been "diversifying" for the last 40 years or so.

    Lots of people assume that cops are real "shooters," but that's generally not the case. They get some minimal firearms training in the academy and annual qualifications but there really isn't much of a budget for live fire training. Some take the initiative and bear the expense of seeking out training on their own, but starting salaries in most places don't leave much for that sort of thing. Throw your average patrol officer into an IPSC competition and he's going to come in dead last.

    I’m also surprised at the popularity of the AR-15 platform versus the 12 gauge shotgun.
     
    As Clint Smith says, a shotgun is an expert's weapon. It's not some kind of cure-all simple solution just because it's cheap relative to other firearms. And at defensive ranges, the pattern of a shotgun's shot isn't much bigger than that of a pistol caliber bullet.
  88. A contagious shooting is a sociological phenomenon observed in military and police personnel, in which one person firing on a target can induce others to begin shooting. Often the subsequent shooters will not know why they are firing, unless they are infantrymen, in which case they are expected to do so. For instance, if someone was a member of a fire team following the point man and he suddenly begins firing his weapon, there is a good chance that their element is in contact with the enemy. Prerequisites for a sworn peace officer regarding the discharge of a duty weapon are in no way comparable to those of a military unit engaged in a firefight.[1][2][3]

    While commonly accepted in popular culture and police jargon, there has been yet no scientific evidence “to prove the existence of a contagious shooting dynamic”, which O’Donnell said was a “debatable notion”.[4]

    Additionally, a former CIA employee and FBI firearms instructor observed it in training. “Consistently, in every class, officers would shoot at their target upon hearing others shoot, even when their particular target board did not contain the called target.”[5] He suggests that one reason it occurs is because of muscle memory: “[T]he targets turn, or the whistle blows, and all the officers shoot together until a cease-fire signal is given.”

    O’Donnell partially reinforces this, saying that in classic cases involving contagious shooting, “a gun was shot before any officers fired”, and thus “the officers involved began shooting because of fear or because of the sound of a colleague firing”.[4]

Of course, the perpetrator’s are White, so my guess is yes, unless the robbers issued a statement beforehand that they were doing it to protest against White supremacists like Clarence Thomas.

    It spills over into White communities. Allowing unpatrolled Bantustans to pockmark every American city will only hasten the cities’ total destruction – and spill into the suburbs and countryside as well.

    Blacks have to be patrolled in the short term and separation is required in the long term. They eventually have to on the other side of a policed and fortified border.

    From the first bodycam it looked like a good shooting. The perp was believed to be armed and was fleeing, then he seemed to turn on the cop.

    The problem was that every single one of the eight (or however many) cops all had the same reaction -- which was to empty their clips on the guy. So it looks like a lot of overkill, including after he was already down.

    Once the guy has been shot, should it matter if his dead body is riddled with extra bullets? Logically, no. But the optics aren't good.

    I guess when the adrenaline kicks in these guys can't stop shooting. I wonder if that's how they are trained.

    A hard-won lesson learned by North Hollywood Police is they must be armed to answer most contingencies.

    In any extistential contest with criminals, police lives always come first.

    Once a police officer is compelled to believe his life is in mortal danger, he can unload his weapon of all bullets at his discretion. Your sense of propriety is based on movies, not real life. Real life can carry dire consequences for police officers, who have a right to not be shot by a gin-wielding criminal at all times.

    They train them to wait until they see a weapon so there isn’t a repeat of the NY wallet incident.

    They don’t train them to stand as a group and unload into a body on the ground.

    Nothing good will come from this.

    Taking one thug off the street won’t do anything. There is always another one to take his place. The system is what needs to change.

    A bad shooting like this will just lead to some innocent White being killed in a mostly peaceful protest. That of course that will just be a “random” incident that goes unreported in the media. Single Black on White killings are ignored unless they are captured on video or the victim is known in the community.

    Been hearing rumors about that for some time.

    On the one hand, it's disturbing and very damaging to the prestige and strength of the United States... MY country. Extremely bothersome and portends some bad times for residents of the USA as our economy weakens further and demand for the dollar with it. However minor one might argue the detrimental effects will be of an FX crisis, they will still be detrimental.

    On the other hand, what exactly has the United States done over the past 20 years to deserve to still be the world's reserve currency anyway? We're not particularly solvent absent accounting tricks, we're not particularly stable, and the US federal government hasn't had respect for - or treated with respect - its currency for quite some time. The US economy is not a goose laying golden eggs.

    Top it off with the insidious habit of forcing the trashier parts of its culture on places around the world that don't want it, and its easy to see why other countries might be looking for leadership and stability somewhere other than the United States.

    Disappointing, yes, but surprising? No.

    Maybe the ensuing depression will encourage some of the more excessive parts of our fiscal policy and trash culture to reconsider their prominence... or at least encourage some saner minded voters and politicians to quit looking the other way as it happens.

  99. This case highlights the need for separate rules for separate peoples.
    In a nation where the overwhelming majority of people are law-abiding and only a few are criminals, and even the criminals have sense enough not to flee armed policemen, we can expect the police to show more restraint. That is the case in a white/asian nation.
    But in a nation or neighborhood of blacks the tables are turned. Many blacks will break the law, most who break the law will resist arrest or flee, and many who resist will shoot at cops. Black neighborhoods are a transition zone from law enforcement to war-like combat. Under these circumstances the police have my permission to shoot first and ask questions later. They can shoot all the fleeing Walkers they want.
    Separate nations with separate governments and separate laws would be a better solution, at least for the civilized people.

When I was in college I got out of my car during a traffic stop and reached for my wallet. Staring down 2 9mm barrels, I realized I’d made a substantial error.

    Even in rural areas they occasionally run into some thug from the city that shoots it out. Definitely a bad situation for a revolver.

    I live in rural America and a few years ago we had some thug come through on a crime spree. Killed a teller even though she complied. Awful.

    I’m also surprised at the popularity of the AR-15 platform versus the 12 gauge shotgun.

    It’s because of the spread and limited range of the 12 gauge. Yes they are devastating at close range but anyone taking two shots of 223 point blank is going to drop.

    The less lethal 12 gauge rounds also lost their popularity. The departments are afraid of the police losing their nerve and putting in the wrong shells by accident. This video proves the concern is valid.

    Blacks have many virtues, as one could learn from watching TV. However, careful introspection is not one of them. Maybe it's due to the legacy of slavery and racism, blah, blah, blah but it's absolutely true that the instinct of many blacks is to take off like a rocket (or sometimes fight like hell) rather than submit to the police, where a white lowlife under similar circumstances might reason that while going to jail is not great (and yes, he was going to jail regardless of his heretofore clean record, with a car used in a felony and a ski mask and a gun in his possession), running from or trying to fight the cops is not likely to end well either so giving up may be the best of your bad choices. In fact his clean record may have hurt him in this case because he didn't have experience with being in custody and didn't understand that it's not the end of the world.

    No, it’s that resisting arrest and running from police has a rational upside – plenty of times you have a fat cop or a cop punching a clock for retirement or a cop who is wary of being the next most famous white man in America and you successfully flee, find a safe place to hide out and you get away with whatever crime you were suspected of committing (or without having been searched for evidence of another crime). It’s just that the upside comes with a rather large downside if you fail – the charges will be more severe and more will be added on, and you’ve just escalated the situation to one in which getting seriously injured or killed is much more likely. Plenty of black kids just grew up running from cops as a manner of course and it doesn’t change when the clock strikes 12 on their eighteenth birthdays.

    This might have changed a bit with the advent of body cameras – the low motivation cops now have some degree of accountability and need to be seen making some good faith effort to get the collar. Ironic, since early “criminal justice reform” demands included compulsory use of body cameras. Now we have loads of video evidence of blacks behaving badly and getting themselves into enormous trouble, and so the narratives change to suppressing material facts revealed in the camera footage.

    People of all shapes and sizes just shoot semiautomatics better – they manage recoil better, and a Glock is a very simple tool. Remember, Police Departments have been “diversifying” for the last 40 years or so.

    Lots of people assume that cops are real “shooters,” but that’s generally not the case. They get some minimal firearms training in the academy and annual qualifications but there really isn’t much of a budget for live fire training. Some take the initiative and bear the expense of seeking out training on their own, but starting salaries in most places don’t leave much for that sort of thing. Throw your average patrol officer into an IPSC competition and he’s going to come in dead last.

    I’m also surprised at the popularity of the AR-15 platform versus the 12 gauge shotgun.

    As Clint Smith says, a shotgun is an expert’s weapon. It’s not some kind of cure-all simple solution just because it’s cheap relative to other firearms. And at defensive ranges, the pattern of a shotgun’s shot isn’t much bigger than that of a pistol caliber bullet.

    And it’s far more likely than not that the cops will be indicted and prosecuted for murder, convicted at trial by a jury too craven and fearful of what will occur if they do what is just and right and acquit them, and sentenced to years or decades in prison and “protective custody,” i.e., solitary confinement or will they share cells with 1 or 2 of their fellow victims of anti-“racism” and black vengeance?

    With a revolver and five shots they would be more likely to get a sight picture and squeeze the trigger rather than “hosing” a target.

    You run into the problem though of when they need to hose the target. A shooter using a vehicle for cover for example. Or when they need to disable a vehicle.

    Even in rural areas they occasionally run into some thug from the city that shoots it out. Definitely a bad situation for a revolver.

    I live in rural America and a few years ago we had some thug come through on a crime spree. Killed a teller even though she complied. Awful.

    Was local news for one night.

    I’m also surprised at the popularity of the AR-15 platform versus the 12 gauge shotgun.

    It's because of the spread and limited range of the 12 gauge. Yes they are devastating at close range but anyone taking two shots of 223 point blank is going to drop.

    The less lethal 12 gauge rounds also lost their popularity. The departments are afraid of the police losing their nerve and putting in the wrong shells by accident. This video proves the concern is valid.

    They had the solution to this problem in the 1970s: a .357 revolver and a 12-gauge shotgun loaded with slugs. You literally had to be a man to shoot them effectively, though.

    Or when they need to disable a vehicle.

    No handgun round is going to stop a vehicle. The best you can do is shoot through the door or windshield and stop the driver. (See above).

    The reload time is too long with a revolver. If someone is behind a vehicle and shooting at you there isn't time to load your shotgun up with slugs. Carrying around a shotgun loaded with slugs doesn't make sense. Too much risk of overpenetration and much easier to miss.

    No handgun round is going to stop a vehicle. The best you can do is shoot through the door or windshield and stop the driver. (See above).

    Sure it can. Shoot the tire or the radiator. They might drive for a while but they aren't getting away.

    You can shoot through a door or windshield with a 9mm. It's possible that the first bullet might only crack the windshield but that doesn't matter if you are carrying 17 of them.

    Revolvers are fun but they have been replaced in law enforcement for good reason. They are not only slow to reload but a caliber like 357 requires more focus and technique. I can take a Glock 17 and easily pepper a man sized target at 30 yards with one hand and without using the sights. Try that with a 357 and you can see why the police don't carry them. Most of those 70s police were using 38 specials.

    No, dum dum.

    A hard-won lesson learned by North Hollywood Police is they must be armed to answer most contingencies.

    In any extistential contest with criminals, police lives always come first.

    Once a police officer is compelled to believe his life is in mortal danger, he can unload his weapon of all bullets at his discretion. Your sense of propriety is based on movies, not real life. Real life can carry dire consequences for police officers, who have a right to not be shot by a gin-wielding criminal at all times.

    Most street cops have horrible gun discipline. It sure sounds to me like the Walker shooting was justified, but 60+ hits is WAY too excessive when you consider how many rounds must have missed. I'd be willing to bet they fired at LEAST triple that number.

    Cops tend to pop off like drunken cowboys any time they think they might have a reason to shoot. There was a case in Cleveland a few years back when a car two blacks were driving backfired. Thinking they were getting shot at, the cops went on a wild chase, shooting over 100 rounds and ending the chase by standing on the hood of the car, shooting 25 rounds each into the driver and the passenger through the windshield. Both turned out to be unarmed.

    Oops!

    Liberals are fond of saying that "nobody needs" high-capacity magazines and "assault weapons." If that's true, then start by prohibiting the cops from having them.

    A bunch of grown men unloading their magazines into a single negro that wasn’t even shooting at them.

    It is extremely unlikely for a suspect to keep fighting after being shot twice. Extremely unlikely and it was clear that one of them downed him. So yes they should have stopped shooting when it was clear that he had been hit.

    This was a bunch of panicky pants little women with badges that kept shooting until they turned him into swiss cheese. And then put cuffs on him.
     
    Is that you John Wayne?

    This is a seriously ignorant comment. The test isn't whether the perp can still mount some kind of physical fight, it's whether the perp is completely incapacitated and therefore unable to return any fire. So unless you could see his trigger finger in that video, you should politely shut your gob.

    Swayed by optics? How so?

    Shooting that many rounds is reckless and that was true before the video was released. I would be livid if I lived nearby. A 9mm bullet can bounce off a rock and fly three blocks and still go through drywall. These cops should all be fired and should never be allowed to own firearms.

    This was an unjustified shooting that will only feed Clown Town and the White guilt media.
     
    You're adopting the negro grievance narrative that when a guy who shot from the car and then fled cops was himself shot in turn that there is some controversy.

    Sixty shots fired by eight officers is under three 3 shot bursts per officer. Iron sights at night, moving target moving away from the shooter. You're basically one step away from the mongoloids who ask "why couldn't they just shoot the gun out of his hand/shoot him in the leg?"

    Yes, we understand that guns can be dangerous and fired bullets have a way of finding non-intentional targets. That's why it's good to get an armed Junior gangbanger like Walker off of the streets.

    REVEALED: Highland Park shooter's mom was convicted of leaving him in hot car for 27 MINUTES when he was 2, as arrest reports reveal her attacks on his dad with shoe and screwdriver

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10994923/Highland-Park-shooters-parents-constantly-fighting-records-show.html

    Highland Park shooter Bobby Crimo III was left in a hot car by his mom for 27 minutes as a toddler - with his mother later convicted over the incident.

    The disturbing 2002 incident was one of multiple brushes with the law Crimo's mom Denise Pesina and dad Bob Crimo Jr had with cops prior to Monday's massacre in Chicago that killed seven.
     


    Police were also called to his family's home 10 times, to reports of domestic violence. [e.a.] Those incidents included Denise Pesina allegedly attacking her husband with a screwdriver and shoe after he berated her looks.  

    The report details nine instances cops were called to the Crimo family home in Highwood between 2010 and 2014, often to address physical disputes between the youth's mother and father, Robert Crimo Jr. and Denise Pesina.

    During one drunken altercation in August 2010, Crimo Jr. told police responding to a domestic abuse call  that Pesina had struck him in the head with her shoe.
     


    In October 2010, police recorded another incident were they were called to the home because of a reported fight between Pesina and Crimo Jr. 

    The encounter saw Pesina hit Crimo Jr. with a screwdriver, the aspiring statesman told police. He added that his wife had been 'trash talking' him, knocked all his belongings off his dresser, before bludgeoning him with the backside of the tool. 

    Pesina argued that Crimo Jr. had been 'making mean statements to me like always, calling me names.'
     


    Another two calls saw the parents call the police on one another for attempts to drive while intoxicated.

    On both occasions, the calls devolved into domestic disputes involving police.

    In June 2011, Crimo Jr. called cops to report that Pesina was attempting to drive to pick up her daughter, Crimo's sister, while intoxicated. 

    Pesina confronted Crimo Jr. about this, cops said, where at which point Pesina blocked the dad from leaving, spurring him to call police.

    Court records show Pesina pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in Lake County in 2012. 

    In 2002, Pesina was slapped with a child endangerment charge, after leaving Crimo III alone in a car with the windows rolled up for 27 minutes in the parking lot of a toy store, court records show.
     


    In September 2019, a few months before Crimo III applied for a gun permit, police conducted a wellness check following a report that days earlier Crimo III had 'made a threat in the household' stating 'he was going to kill everyone.' 

    Police confiscated 16 knives, a 12-inch dagger and a 24-inch samurai sword during the wellness check, according to the report, but returned them to Crimo's father, who claimed they were his, which is one of the reasons why, police officers said, the young shooter passed the Red Flag law.

    Even though, as the documents show, Crimo was deemed a 'clear and present danger,' who, 'if granted access to a firearm or firearm ammunition pose an actual, imminent threat of substantial bodily harm to themselves or another person[s] that is articulable and significant or who will likely act in a manner dangerous to public interest.'

    Despite the incident, Crimo's father helped him apply for a firearm owner identification card (FOID) mere weeks later, [e.a.] and Crimo passed four Illinois background checks to purchase the gun he would go on to murder seven people with three years later.

His fiancee is reported to have died last month in a car accident -- that could have been the catalyst for (per Steve in the OP) what looks like a Death of Despair not Exuberance.

    The girlfriend's name is being withheld. I hope that's the mainstream affording some privacy to her grieving family, a decent thing to do. Alternatively, in a week or two there could be a leak of some Breonna Tayloresque details at odds with the Narrative.

    Again per Steve: if Walker was white, this likely Suicide By Cop story wouldn't have traveled beyond WKYC 3 News At Eleven.

    Outrage in Akron was the lead story on Sunday evening's CBS Weekend News. The gleeful anchors proudly waved their flag: We Stand With The Narrative!

    According to CBS News, Walker was unarmed, although police claimed gunshots came from his car, and claimed to have found a handgun in the car. The reporting team somehow forgot a minor detail buried towards the back of the NYT's article:

    "Bobby DiCello, a lawyer for the Walker family, said Mr. Walker had only recently obtained the [handgun recovered from the car]."

    Upside-down style, the LA Times mentioned:

    "Walker had fled the scene of a traffic stop in nearby New Franklin, Ohio, the night before, according to DiCello, though it was unclear why."

    Monday morning's NBC Today account was more of the same.

    Akron Beacon News reporter Doug Livingston wrote a good account, though he missed DiCello's confession that Walker was the owner of the handgun in his car.

    “Outrage in Akron was the lead story on Sunday evening’s CBS Weekend News.”

    There is certainly plenty to be outraged about with what recently happened in Akron. But the police shooting of Jayland Walker has nothing to do with any justifiable outrage. Indeed, when somebody shoots at the cops from a car and then flees from the car, the cops certainly have probable cause to believe that that person is armed and to act accordingly. Which is exactly what the cops did.

    No, the real outrage in Akron should be about the recent savage attack where four black thugs stomped a kid to death on a playground in that city.

    That incident... brutal.

    On June 2, 17-year-old Ethan Liming and three friends were driving around, annoying bystanders with a super soaker. At 10:30 pm, they stopped to do this at a basketball court. Video shows the players running off, then circling back to the car. Three (or all four) then beat Liming to death.


    Akron Police Chief Stephen Mylett acknowledged the community’s [sic] “outpouring of support” for Liming’s family and the case.
     

    “There is nothing [sic] to indicate race played a role in this homicide,” said Chief Mylett.
     
    This very boring and very long ago dog-bites-man non-story was not covered by NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt. Or NBC Today. Or CBS Evening News. Or NPR.

    My view is that once the shooting begins the objective is to stop the threat. This means making sure they pose no danger to you. The idea of counting shots is ludicrous, if you live you’re lucky, that’s it.

    The only thing that needs to be adjudicated is whether the shooting was justified in the first place.

    If the shooting turns out not to be justified – like, for example, they’re shooting at the wrong person – then filling the target full of holes is going to insure that they – an innocent person – dies.

    I’m not saying that it’s the case in this case. But it has happened. Cops aren’t always right. Often times, they are are careless, stupid, and cruel. Consider this case:

Crimo had the number 47 tattooed on his face (behind the right eye). Crimo’s “monkeywrench” logo could easily be interpreted as a sigil made out of the number 4 and the number 7. And of course his attack happened on the fourth day of the seventh month.
    He doesn’t seem to have an ideology. A truly vapid, soulless, nihilistic empty vessel. Nowhere in his rap music or his messages is he especially angry about anything.

    - Gunfire from the car so VBIPOC obviously has a gun

    - VBIPOC takes off running in a ski mask

    - Police try to get VBIPOC with the taser and it doesn't work

    - ?????

    - Cops pump VBIPOC full of lead

    - A gun is found in the car later with a loaded magazine next to it and a spent shell casing and no one disputes that the gun belonged to the VBIPOC

    - Nonetheless, "many" "questions" about the shooting are "deepened" now that we have a video of the incident of cops shooting an unarmed VBIPOC..

    Do I have that right?

    I have to say, taking the mag out of the gun and leaving it there while you make a run for it is brilliant service to the narrative: the gun wasn't loaded and the suspect was unarmed when he was shot, so naturally the story is about racist cops.

    MK Ultra.

    I told you guys.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a large fraction of these "mass shooting" events involved MK Ultra and various types of intelligence agency support.

    Just look at that bizarre shooting that just happened in Uvalde, Texas. Remember that shooting in Las Vegas back in 2017 (in which over 400 were wounded)? Lots of "mass shootings" are very strange when you begin to look into the details.

    NPR covering it as "He was unarmed when police shot him" because they can't say 'he was unarmed' since he was armed in the car. So rather than avoid stating whether he was armed or not, or saying 'a gun with loaded magazine was in the car and he shot at police' they just say the most inflammatory possible description, even though it requires adding the extra "when shot". And they delete all the details that might justify the shooting.

    If so, the only reasonable conclusion is that the media and their masters are waging war on America. Isn’t the object of war to kill and destroy an enemy, and to make the enemy powerless? War can be waged without a military.

    You run into the problem though of when they need to hose the target. A shooter using a vehicle for cover for example.
     
    They had the solution to this problem in the 1970s: a .357 revolver and a 12-gauge shotgun loaded with slugs. You literally had to be a man to shoot them effectively, though.

    Or when they need to disable a vehicle.
     
    No handgun round is going to stop a vehicle. The best you can do is shoot through the door or windshield and stop the driver. (See above).

    The reload time is too long with a revolver. If someone is behind a vehicle and shooting at you there isn’t time to load your shotgun up with slugs. Carrying around a shotgun loaded with slugs doesn’t make sense. Too much risk of overpenetration and much easier to miss.

    No handgun round is going to stop a vehicle. The best you can do is shoot through the door or windshield and stop the driver. (See above).

    Sure it can. Shoot the tire or the radiator. They might drive for a while but they aren’t getting away.

    You can shoot through a door or windshield with a 9mm. It’s possible that the first bullet might only crack the windshield but that doesn’t matter if you are carrying 17 of them.

    Revolvers are fun but they have been replaced in law enforcement for good reason. They are not only slow to reload but a caliber like 357 requires more focus and technique. I can take a Glock 17 and easily pepper a man sized target at 30 yards with one hand and without using the sights. Try that with a 357 and you can see why the police don’t carry them. Most of those 70s police were using 38 specials.

    *Here are some of his monstrous crimes:

    Bennett Charlotte Bennett, an executive assistant and health policy advisor to Cuomo, said [on national TV] that during a one-on-one meeting in the governor's office on June 5, 2020, Cuomo implied "that I was old enough for him and he was lonely".

    Ana Liss, a policy and operations aide to Cuomo from 2013 to 2015, said Cuomo called her "sweetheart," [and] touched her on her lower back while they were at a reception.

OTOH they want to engage in the rough and tumble of office politics and making important policies (modern government has "policies" for everything) but OTOH they are like delicate Victorian flowers who must not be offended in the slightest or they will wilt.

    I think part of the answer is that Cuomo, at some point, hit the male equivalent of the Wall, where you go from somewhat older but plausible (due to his position of power) potential mate to a creepy old man who reminds young women of their grandfathers. That Cuomo's long term girlfriend, Sandra Lee, had abandoned him did not help. Women covet what other women have and they don't want to be associated with someone that other women have rejected.

    Terrible news, of course. But the vile corporate media and wicked Democratic politicians have created a poisonous atmosphere in which young white men are infused with messaging that tells them they are born in sin, that their future in this country is bleak in order to atone for the supposed racial transgressions of their parents and grandparents and so on. Combine this potent psychological warfare with active security state involvement in creating young white male killers who walk into a Buffalo supermarket and begin shooting black people. American elites are psychos; I don't know how this situation gets better.

    Gov Kathy got to the seat through the servants' entrance, when Cuomo-not-the-homo* was shown the door. Other than Texas and Ann Richards, what is the most populous state that has elected a woman governor in her own right? Massachusetts? New Jersey? Washington? Oh, wait... Michigan! Gretchen Witless!

    This fits Steven Goldberg's analysis to a T. Texas's governorship is one of the weakest, making it less of a prize. The other giant states' capitols [sic] attract armies of ambitious men.

    Female governors pioneered in tiny states, starting with Wyoming. Though women first voted in Utah, not Wyoming. That state has never elected a woman governor.

    Not sure about the cross dressing or its implications. Maybe just part of a plan, though pretty unusual.

    I think he may fit into the "incel" category (involuntary celibate) of social misfits and acting out crazy male shooters.

    This seems to be a known category of mass shooters.

    He certainly appears to be the type who would not have a prom date.

    Coupled with sexual frustration might be a narcissistic desire for public attention by means to committing some public act of violence ("manhood test") which he thinks might improve his changes of getting laid. Yes, crazy.

    But not unlike the lummoxes on the school football team who get beat up and hurt all for the glory of a letterman's jacket and imagined dating improvement. That is sanctioned, controlled violence for the "home team", patriotic.

    Crimo is the only person responsible for his particular actions, but it’s obvious that society is being pushed towards some very ugly places that will bring out the worst in our crazies, if not actually create crazies.

    You can’t tell me that rap music and the constant message that blacks are the victims of vicious racism and oppression at the hands of whites does not push some people towards violence. The same is the case for constantly vilianizing white men, changing demographics, discriminating against them via government, and then saying none of it is happening.

    Individuals are responsible for their own actions, and that also goes for the people who are purposely stirring the pot, running the economy for their benefit alone, and destroying and altering the nation with absolutely no consent.

    Maybe this is just primitive animal “flight or fight” behavior or maybe a lot of young blacks think that taking a runner is a rational response vs. an older cop who is carrying an extra 50 lbs. or so of donut and beer belly.
     
    No, it's that resisting arrest and running from police has a rational upside - plenty of times you have a fat cop or a cop punching a clock for retirement or a cop who is wary of being the next most famous white man in America and you successfully flee, find a safe place to hide out and you get away with whatever crime you were suspected of committing (or without having been searched for evidence of another crime). It's just that the upside comes with a rather large downside if you fail - the charges will be more severe and more will be added on, and you've just escalated the situation to one in which getting seriously injured or killed is much more likely. Plenty of black kids just grew up running from cops as a manner of course and it doesn't change when the clock strikes 12 on their eighteenth birthdays.

    This might have changed a bit with the advent of body cameras - the low motivation cops now have some degree of accountability and need to be seen making some good faith effort to get the collar. Ironic, since early "criminal justice reform" demands included compulsory use of body cameras. Now we have loads of video evidence of blacks behaving badly and getting themselves into enormous trouble, and so the narratives change to suppressing material facts revealed in the camera footage.

    A Korean guy I played football with was an absolute beast of a wrestler. Went to CIF state finals his junior and senior years and finished in the semis both times iirc. My sophomore year (1990) we had a girl on the wrestling team, probably inspired by the senior who won homecoming queen and kicked a PAT during the same football game that year:

    . They claim he was “disguised as a woman” when escaping

    I don't think there was any transgender identity crisis - he wore this as a disguise to get away and it worked (at least so far as it allowed him to escape the immediate vicinity of the crime).

    OTOH, the guy is crazy as a loon but OTOH he show a high level of planning and organization which is not usually associated with those who are so mentally ill that they can escape criminal responsibility as a legal matter.

    Not sure about the cross dressing or its implications. Maybe just part of a plan, though pretty unusual.

    I think he may fit into the “incel” category (involuntary celibate) of social misfits and acting out crazy male shooters.

    This seems to be a known category of mass shooters.

    He certainly appears to be the type who would not have a prom date.

    Coupled with sexual frustration might be a narcissistic desire for public attention by means to committing some public act of violence (“manhood test”) which he thinks might improve his changes of getting laid. Yes, crazy.

    But not unlike the lummoxes on the school football team who get beat up and hurt all for the glory of a letterman’s jacket and imagined dating improvement. That is sanctioned, controlled violence for the “home team”, patriotic.

    Cowardly massacre of strangers is just video game zapping for real. He shoulda joined the Marines, but even they have standards.

    True, but in contexts like these, the word "both" is your friend.

    You gotta be trolling. They’re the Crimo Crime Family:

    REVEALED: Highland Park shooter’s mom was convicted of leaving him in hot car for 27 MINUTES when he was 2, as arrest reports reveal her attacks on his dad with shoe and screwdriver

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10994923/Highland-Park-shooters-parents-constantly-fighting-records-show.html

    Highland Park shooter Bobby Crimo III was left in a hot car by his mom for 27 minutes as a toddler – with his mother later convicted over the incident.

    The disturbing 2002 incident was one of multiple brushes with the law Crimo’s mom Denise Pesina and dad Bob Crimo Jr had with cops prior to Monday’s massacre in Chicago that killed seven.

    Police were also called to his family’s home 10 times, to reports of domestic violence. [e.a.] Those incidents included Denise Pesina allegedly attacking her husband with a screwdriver and shoe after he berated her looks.  

    The report details nine instances cops were called to the Crimo family home in Highwood between 2010 and 2014, often to address physical disputes between the youth’s mother and father, Robert Crimo Jr. and Denise Pesina.

    During one drunken altercation in August 2010, Crimo Jr. told police responding to a domestic abuse call  that Pesina had struck him in the head with her shoe.

    In October 2010, police recorded another incident were they were called to the home because of a reported fight between Pesina and Crimo Jr. 

    The encounter saw Pesina hit Crimo Jr. with a screwdriver, the aspiring statesman told police. He added that his wife had been ‘trash talking’ him, knocked all his belongings off his dresser, before bludgeoning him with the backside of the tool. 

    Pesina argued that Crimo Jr. had been ‘making mean statements to me like always, calling me names.’

    Another two calls saw the parents call the police on one another for attempts to drive while intoxicated.

    On both occasions, the calls devolved into domestic disputes involving police.

    In June 2011, Crimo Jr. called cops to report that Pesina was attempting to drive to pick up her daughter, Crimo’s sister, while intoxicated. 

    Pesina confronted Crimo Jr. about this, cops said, where at which point Pesina blocked the dad from leaving, spurring him to call police.

    Court records show Pesina pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in Lake County in 2012. 

    In 2002, Pesina was slapped with a child endangerment charge, after leaving Crimo III alone in a car with the windows rolled up for 27 minutes in the parking lot of a toy store, court records show.

    In September 2019, a few months before Crimo III applied for a gun permit, police conducted a wellness check following a report that days earlier Crimo III had ‘made a threat in the household’ stating ‘he was going to kill everyone.’ 

    Police confiscated 16 knives, a 12-inch dagger and a 24-inch samurai sword during the wellness check, according to the report, but returned them to Crimo’s father, who claimed they were his, which is one of the reasons why, police officers said, the young shooter passed the Red Flag law.

    Even though, as the documents show, Crimo was deemed a ‘clear and present danger,’ who, ‘if granted access to a firearm or firearm ammunition pose an actual, imminent threat of substantial bodily harm to themselves or another person[s] that is articulable and significant or who will likely act in a manner dangerous to public interest.’

    Despite the incident, Crimo’s father helped him apply for a firearm owner identification card (FOID) mere weeks later, [e.a.] and Crimo passed four Illinois background checks to purchase the gun he would go on to murder seven people with three years later.
