    Suspect who “allegedly” killed. C’mon you forgot that word???

    • Avatar hellasow says:

      They did use “suspect”

    • Avatar 2BusySecretary says:

      Alleged suspect is like a double negative, it isn’t necessary.

    • Avatar off colored says:

      I’m guessing you’re not aware what the word suspect means

    Pipe bomb?

    Good we need more GOOD people in the world 🙏🏻

    Civilians did the cops’ job and they are yelling at them like they are the criminals. I’m the one that always defends law enforcement but it is getting harder and harder to do so. Btw, that is the dog’s house and he is just doing what dogs normally do.

    • Avatar SA Inja woof says:

      @hellasow it is only a safety concern for someone who doesn’t know how to behave around an animal. It is leashed and being physically restrained, on its own property. Even though that means nothing to cops.

    • Avatar 2BusySecretary says:

      @Eastern Lighthouse I forget nothing, I have worked for two law enforcement agencies one in the Bay Area. They did not need to yell at the civilians like that.

    • Avatar Eastern Lighthouse says:

      2BusySecretary cops only get mental counseling if a weapon discharges or a person is killed in action. Of all day to day routines and crimes a cop investigates, that’s about it. Yes there are bad cops, yes the yelling was unnecessary but you’re wrestling and detaining a cop killer who had a gun with a dog barking, it’s high stress and some of them are high functional because of patrol duty to the protests.

      Edit: imagine the murders, rapes, violent crimes, finding children dead, missing or stolen especially in the high populated areas.

    • Avatar hellasow says:

      @SA Inja woof The dog was milling around off a leash calm as can be (earlier in the video) and when the police moved in it is being very aggressive and needs to be held back…It was not on a leash as the owner was holding it by a collar…Since your the “dog whisperer” you are going to tell me why the dog was barking and if it got loose it would not bite anyone…
      1st off it not the police job to know how to behave around YOUR ANIMAL It is your job to control them!!! Funny how you are so willing to put YOUR RESPONSIBILiTY(dog owners) on the police…
      What next you going expect the police to know how to deal with you when you take a mystery cocktail of drugs and have a gun in your hand…Why take any responsibility for anything it always the police responsibility…Blame the police for your responsibility…Yeah, that sounds right…IF YOU ARE A MORON!!!!

    • Avatar SA Inja woof says:

      @hellasow yes actually I’m a veterinarian, who has had to euthanize a few family pets that were MURDERED for no reason. Shot open with so much damage that there is no hope of rescue. Not to mention trying to resuscitate a $15 000+ dog that some moron decided to leave in his k-9 cage in the squad car, when it was over 90degrees F. The dog in the video is exhibiting VERY predictable behaviour to anyone who is taught to know dogs or has experience with them. It is on its own property with its owner and is comfortable and confident. EVERY single dog would change its behaviour after the police came in. Depending on the dog, it could be one of several common reactions. Being that this gorgeous pupper is a very family orientated breed, it is very protective of family members. You then have a group of people heavily dressed and armed yelling and screaming, on the dog’s property. This is exactly what to do to ensure the dog’s fearful and cautious and likely to attack you. The owner was extremely responsible, the dog was collared, leashed, and physically restrained. Considering 67% of Americans own a dog, and half of those own multiple dogs, yes it is ABSOLUTELY the responsible thing to train officers how to safely interact with 2/3 of their community’s pets. Not to mention it is just basic logic to know about flora and fauna in your area.

      No good Sumatran will shoot except and unless their lives are in danger. You don’t want to become a criminal by shooting a criminal. That’s what citizens arrest is for. Let the legal system punish him.

    • Avatar Russ Hall says:

      Why can’t the police subdue an unarmed person without killing them?😳😞😣

    • Avatar Tmb1112 says:

      I mean… they did. This guy wasn’t killed. And he had just killed a cop too and shot others. The vast majority of the time they subdue unarmed people without killing them. Just a couple of fahck-ups that make problems for the rest

    • Avatar Russ Hall says:

      @Tmb1112 the neighborhood citizens subdued him not the police

    • Avatar Voiceov Reason says:

      @Russ Hall There was no excessive resistance and he was already down on the ground. That helps!

    • Avatar Voiceov Reason says:

      @Russ Hall What is your point? That of the millions of times unarmed people are arrested they are usually shot? The instance of anything more happening is infinitesimal

    I think the trouble started for Trump when he brought attention to the

    since they all do this , Trump as Serpico and Washington as corrupt bribe
    taking cops, republicans and democrats brought together in that we got to get rid
    of Trump by any means necessary , media industrial complex and the
    military industrial complex are good friends (you supply talk of weapons
    of mass destruction ill supply the war) now with media magic (people
    are dumb) they will blame all the troubles on liberal cities that have
    been run by democrat for ages on a man whose involvement in politics is 3

  14. Avatar Jacob Yahiayan says:

    Yeah and defund the Police/National Guard; nuts! A good family man was killed along with a grandfather retired Police Captain. Stop demonizing the police. They come in all races in the local police force, event the bad ones which the DoJ is investigating with local AG in Mn., we shed enough blood and treasure for this media mayhem.

    • Avatar Jacky Terrero says:

      I wish there would be a good Samaratin law were bystanders are allowed to defend people that are being killed or harmed by cops, at least to allow the to pepper spray them, I think if I was there I probably would have pepper spray those evil cops

    Seems others could learn what an Actual Citizen’s Arrest really looks like.

  21. Avatar 2BusySecretary says:

    This should be a wake up call to those that want to defund law enforcement, who you gonna call? Let’s hope the Ghost Busters come. We need more funding for law enforcement, not less. Then maybe they can include manners classes and stress relievers like yoga because God knows PD needs it today.

    • Avatar samAFTERMATH says:

      They get enough. We need them to do better with 50% of state budget. Thank you.

    • Avatar 2BusySecretary says:

      @samAFTERMATH No, they are under staffed and end up earning $200,00 a year in overtime. More cops, more accountability.

      @RichardFitswel cops do very little work they let snitches,crime stoppers and social media do the work for them. That gives them time to drive around and violate people’s rights and meet their quota in bs tickets

    For the record if the police saw him first that man would be dead funny how a bunch of civilians with no training took out a armed man and disarmed him with out killing him.

  27. Avatar Trains,Transformers&PATRIOTSFan1236 says:

      @Moos P. yeah ok…2 unarmed people manage to subdue a murderer on the ground until police arrive. One cop shot already. That has so much to do with Trump.
      Spread your ignorance somewhere else please.

    • Avatar Voiceov Reason says:

      @Moos P. You know how ignorant you sound? Trump brought unemployment rate for Blacks to an all time low, improved the economy, put plans in place to fund Black business in struggling neighborhoods, sanctioned Charter schools so people could choose to be in a better school despite their zip code, and put into a permanent contract (the first EVER written) an enormous amount of money to go to Black private college funds, for them to use as they see fit. It was more than the combined total for every other president. You don’t know anything. Probably glued to CNN.

    • Avatar Moos P. says:

      @Voiceov Reason yeah, sure, you are right, trump is the best person in the world and nobody has ever achieved as much as he did and his inauguration crowd was the largest ever and he looks just great. you are also the 2nd smartest person in the world, only trump is smarter as we all know.

With courtesy and respect and ive lived here long enough to be able to say that 1000% and I’ve had my own experiences that I may not have been happy about but regardless I have to say these are all some FINE RESPECTFUL CARING OFFICERS and they did not deserve this ambush. Its very upsetting and trust you do not want to screw up in this town THESE COPS HERE ARE GOOD ONES and they will deal with everyone accordingly but in a safe fair and VERY EFFECTIVE MANNER I have nothing but respect for everyone I’ve ever dealt with in this community even if I didn’t agree with some of them they still did their job and did it WELL thats saying something these days.

    • Avatar Kalinaki Lawrence says:

      @Annie Pibbles You are White! The person who shot them wasn’t black! So the real picture couldn’t come out! Whereas there some white people who may understand the full factual truth, majority will never know nor want to know! So at the end of the day it is what it is. Educate yourself on how and why the police was formed. Police is just a slave patrol 🤷🏿. But yes, not all officers are the same! Some are really human. And maybe your county is a model example of good policing. If that’s the case. God bless!
