    I’ve always found it odd that when something like this happens, it’s usually accompanied by similar events within the following months. This is just the kind of thing that rioters and their enablers need to keep the narrative alive. My guess is that this incident isn’t as cut & dry as the person who posted the video is leading people to believe.

    I’m sorry, but when you approach a cop with a knife in hand, bad things will happen.

    The cop should have taken a knife in the chest so the offender could receive psychiatric help. That way the taxpayers could support the cop’s children and widow and support the offender until he is released, again, cured

  • So Jordan saw the cops shoot the guy in the head 10 times? How did he miss seeing the knife he was carrying or hear the verbal orders to stop?

    Since it normally takes the Fire Dept about 1-4 minutes to respond and they are just arriving at the beginning of his video, I suspect he had just walked up to it too.

    “for no reason” Sure. They just randomly pulled up on a guy on Hollywood Blvd and gunned him down. Thats what cops do.

  • Clarence Worley

    That cop was racist for not allowing himself to be stabbed!!!

    We will be seeing more and more of this in the near future, people lying about what they saw just like some of them did in Ferguson. It’s important to counter the lies with the truth, just exactly like what happened here.
