    What the hell was he doing to begin with? Normal people don't hang around Burger King parking lots down on their knees with guns in their hands.

    He was threatening his baby mama and her boyfriend that both worked at BK by waving a gun around. Several customers made 911 calls on him.

    So, with that context:

    multiple 911 calls indicating someone armed and threatening someone else
    911 calls certainly contained a description of the perp, officers probably received confirming reports regarding the perp's description
    officer's arrived on scene aware of the threatening perp who was armed

    Sure, some shallow minded child is most definitely going to riot based on their flawed viewpoint but seems like verifiable shoot from my amateur mindset.

    A good shoot? No. Legally justified? Probably.

    I doubt you can reasonably prove that she intended to kill him, based on her verbal commands which indicated a desire to de-escalate. Those were terrible commands btw!!! It seems like her brain shortcircuited under pressure and while he appears to have finally decided to follow their commands, she saw him grabbing the gun and thought “oh crap, he’s going for the gun! I have to shoot.”

    I sense more training for CMPD in what commands can be given. Scripted commands only.

    I’ve seen the term “baby momma” several times in this thread. Can anyone explain to me when a momma is not a baby momma?

    It’s not talking about being a mom in general

    It’s talking about a woman who is the mother of the progeny of said individual

    My wife is my baby momma. Your wife may be a momma but she’s not my baby momma

    See?

    A momma and daddy are a family unit.
    A baby momma is someone you had a kid with but not married or together as a couple. Also simply called an ex if you get along, but theres an implied degree of animosity in the term baby momma.

    Play it at .25 speed, he has gun in right hand, holding it by muzzle, no fingers in trigger area,
    he slowly lowers it about a foot or so, then is shot by officer.

    That Burger King woman was stupid, walks directly into line of fire from two officers before getting out of the way.

    Of course there are now planned violent protests against the police for killing another "DINDUNUFFIN."
    Suicide by cop. Period. Arrest all the protesters.

    The BK employee walking behind the car door looks like she's seen a gunfight or two! Those two cops aiming her way didn't phase her at all.

    The instigators haven’t been brought in yet ... locals are amateurs ... they’re are waiting for the professionals.

    I’m going to say this looks like a bad shoot to me, as it was said earlier the guy with the weapon appeared to finally comply with dropping the gun when he was shot, of course if I had two cops pointing guns at me I probably would have used a few words to the effect of “I’m going to get the gun and slowly place it on the ground , PLEASE DONT SHOOT ME”, he didn’t do so and lost his life over being an idiot.

    In all honesty how does one “drop the gun” without touching it to put it down? One correct answer is not not be out in public waving a firearm around like a moron in the first place, but from the video I saw it appeared the guy was attempting to place the gun on the ground when he was shot.

    The way they pick names is by picking up scrabble tiles out of a bag and line them up on a table.

    No no. I had a cousin once who was a nurse at the clinic and one girl wanted to name her kid Syphillis. She had been browsing the magazines in the waiting room while waiting for her checkup and saw the word and liked it until my cousin told her what it was.

    I know of a kit who was named James but it’s pronounced Juh-mez. The mom had no clue what to name him, the Dr’s name was James, so she said “how can I change that around a little?”, and we have Juh-mez spelled James. Good luck to that kid!

    My neighbor used to be a deputy. Before they got new squad cars, they had small stickers on the back glass. They had, in large letters "BDR." Below, in small text, it said "baby daddy removal."

    This stuff ain't nothing new. My mom worked at unemployment office before I was born and I am 63. She used to tell the story of a client they had whose name was Bloomer Blossom.


    Oh it was a guy.

    Yup knew of none when I was a kid 20yr ago.

    How about Velvet Champagne? Real name of a female at my company’s call center.
