Police Shoot Man In Walmart, Killed Over Toy Gun

Black man with a gun....toy gun....but a gun none the less.

Shoot first then ask questions.....

Common sense one would think have taken place in this situation.....

Clearly these officer's shot before thinking...

    So far that is the family story and I am saddened that someone could have been shot like that.
    However until the circumstances are known, I would not jump to conclusions.
    I know that at my job if someone points a weapon at me … the situation could be the same.
    That said, don’t toy weapons have orange tips?

      Louie it’s kind of hard not to jump to conclusions when everyday I see articles of incidents like this one.
      However I understand and agree with your point…

    Even if he did point the toy gun at an officer, toy guns are now required to have an orange tip on the end of the barrel. If he had just gotten this gun it would still have had this coloration.

    We’re so afraid of things that aren’t like us. It scares me, I mean, will my life end because I’m different.

    .
    You can empty a Glock (for instance) as fast as you can pull the trigger. Most people can pull the trigger very fast. Police officers aren’t trained to wait & see what happens if they believe someone is standing there with a gun. I believe that if your waving a toy gun around in public you are trying to kill yourself using the police as a weapon. Well either that are you have just proved that your to dumb to live.
