  •  Next - victim was a leftist. (3+ / 0-)

    This has triggered my sense of outrage like nothing else.
    Basically, it said that he fit the profile as someone who can be murdered by the police, and the bar is pretty low and the criteria totally arbitrary. It is saying that the criteria for a police shooting is not whether the officer is in danger. It invalidates centuries of common law regarding the meaning of self-defense.
    Next we will hear that the victim posted anti-police ideas on the DailyKos as an excuse for execution, and we will be in Pinochet's Chile.
