once i got very drunk in a bar and my mum had to pick me up so i was trying to act normal by keeping the conversation so i asked her if shes a virgin and she looked at me with pain in her eyes and said “i wish i was”
really sick of seeing so much hate directed towards the police on here. look, we get it, you prefer sting’s solo work, i like it too alright? that doesnt mean ‘every little thing she does is magic’ and ‘can’t stand losing you’ arent awesome jams. ‘roxanne’ and ‘don’t stand so close to me’ are classic, don’t even get me started on ‘spirits in the material world’. just stop ok?
St. Louis- On Tuesday, while tensions continued to simmer in Ferguson, just a few miles away 25-year-old Kajieme Powell was gunned down by St. Louis cops. Officers claimed that they were in fear of their lives as Powell charged at them with a knife. They claim he had the knife in an “overhand grip” and…
Please, somebody tell me cops are always right. Come tell me after reading that article and watching that video that, cops don’t fucking do anything wrong, ever.
How terrified are cops that they hand cuff his corpse…
And I’m sorry. That’s a clean shooting, he was well within 10 feet of those officers, and if he had jumped off that ledge could have easily reached the cop standing closest to the sidewalk.
This is a police officer doing his job.
This is extremely sad that a person lost their life, however the blame is entirely on the individual, this appears to be more of a suicide by cop instance then an unjustified shooting.
I’m going to block you after this, because even if this is ‘legal’ fuck legal. There were two cops there, one could have had a gun out and another with a taser. A cop has an arsenal of weapons to use that aren’t lethal, what is the point of them if they ignore all of those weapons and always go for the gun? Other countries do not operate this way, they had plenty of choices (stay in their car, move back), protection (vests, car, weapons, back up), and training. And what? It all flies out of the window because they want to shoot someone.
This man was mentally unstable, clearly, he asked to be shot by them several times. He needed help, compassion, to be seen as a fucking human being, but he knew, even in that state, especially in that state, he’s just warm resting place for 9 mm bullets.
What I was trying to say. Having two parents that were in law enforcement I can say they are people too that fear for their safety.
It’s super easy to armchair quarterback things as an untrained civilian, but since apparently you’re not actually interested in having a conversation, I’ll just leave this for anyone who actually wants to see both sides of a story.
