Like I said above, don't worry about it.  It is gun ownership's fault.

I really want to know if the homeowner was wearing a red shirt and/or hat (the description he gave of the car jacker).

 

If not... I'm not really quite sure what the cops excuse would have been.

I'm pretty sure that some stories have said that he was not wearing a red shirt. But some are saying that he should have told the 911 dispatcher that he was armed ( so they could communicate that to the cops, I guess ). Reports also are saying that the incident happened extremely quickly. I guess that is so the cops can say that they headed into an unknown situation and made an instantaneous decision, when a gun was pointed at them.

They might say he was brandishing his weapon and pointing it at them. They might say that they thought he might have been an accomplice to the perp that the call was about.

It is certain that they will come up with a good story.

My prediction is that there will be no criminal liability for the cops and there will be a big civil suit settlement for the victim. And, of course, there will be departmental investigations and findings. I would be amazed if this cop keeps his job. Luckily, for the cop, and obviously the victim, there was no killing.

This is interesting to me. If you know that it is your side doing the shooting, wouldn't it be prudent to key on that? Otherwise you could get some cross fire/cops could get the impression that they are being fired on.

Specifically our "natural governing party", the Liberals. Liberals are red while Conservatives are blue..now consider the flag. :P

You're not really doing the story justice.

Man calls 911, tells them someone just robbed his wife of her car at gunpoint. Then he says "is that him? Is that him?" and hangs up.

Police arrive at the house, and the car is in the driveway.

Homeowner comes out of garage with a gun and is racistly mistaken for the suspect for reasons that could only be racism, and is shot.

The wife had already been carjacked. Did the cops think the carjacker came back because he felt remorse?  Did he come back to get gas money?

Hence the "there's no situation so bad that the cops can't make it worse" tag instead of "racist cops shoot black guy."

I encourage the alt-right to build and utilize their own vocabulary. It makes them that much easier to identify and ignore.

If that's the case, you shouldn't have linked to and quoted a newspaper account that explicitly frames the story in racial terms -- "black homeowner, white cop."

Ataturk, you forgot where he tells the cops what color shirt and hat the carjacker is wearing.

 

 

Just a little important.

So it looks like police officers generally don't know their cars, which is amazing since they usually live their lives in them and seeing/pulling over hundreds if not thousands on the roads. The homeowners had 2 cars, a Nissan Sentra (compact) that was stolen and an Altima (mid sized) that was not. They confused the Altima for the stolen Sentra and assumed the carjacker was still present.

Also based on a fairly good description of the carjacker wearing a red shirt, hat, and armed with a long gun (rifle), I'm not sure why cops would want to shoot a black homeowner stepping out of his own garage with a handgun. Oh wait, we all know why.

I have to say not knowing the difference between two Nissans is not something I'm going to quibble over.

This is still a horrendous fuck up and I doubt would have happened in a white neighborhood,
