    White cops, from a department that the Feds have said has a history of widespread excessive force shoot pregnant black female with mental health issues that was known to the police as being a potential threat when she confronted them with a knife after supposedly calling them to report a burglary and the family says race is the cause.

    Story here: Seattle police fatally shoot black mother of four who they say ‘confronted’ officers with a knife

    I'm not usually one to support the cops, but I do know some LEOs in the Charlotte area. This is another example where the officers have to solve problems in the community created by lax parents, school teachers, and then doctors and judges who keep kicking the can down the road. Leave it to the cops to sort it out in the end.

    Face it, they are not professionally trained to solve life's shortcomings in a split second, having to act as quasi-lawyers, social workers, and at the same time practice self-defense in order to return home safety to their families at night.

    I guess she couldn't confront them with a gun because of Seattle's new gun tax.

    Doesn't stop them from cashing the paycheck.

    The job has some assumed risk.

    Shooting the person who called to report the robbery in front of their kids never seems like a good thing, no matter what the color of the victim is.


    EDIT

    Just read another article that said the deceased was NOT armed with a knife.

    This could get ugly in a hurry.

    Sounds like a possible suicide by cop.

    Where did you read she didn't have a knife? I just read and listened to ten reports that said she did have a knife and was approaching the officers on scene.

    And, yes, this could get real ugly, real fast.

    It takes a reasonable amount of problems to become a frequent flyer with a PD. Either assaults, law suits, or frivolous complaints. If she was tagged in the computer, that's telling about their dealings with her in the past. They were not good. Terrible ending, non the less. But this is one I would give time to sort out before questioning it so much. This was not a random problem, it sounds like the culmination of ongoing problems.

    The case that has it all. Or nothing depending on how you look at it.

    White cops... said someone who wasn't there and is not a part of the department. So maybe white, maybe not.

    Department with a history of excessive force... Does that include these officers or does old allegations prove this was excessive? No.

    Pregnant... Is there a pregnancy hormone that makes a woman incapable of violence? We know the opposite to be true. Does pregnancy give someone the right to cut a couple of guys unchallenged?

    Mental issues... Does that make someone less or more dangerous?

    Race the cause... Says possible racist black folks that weren't there. I'll withhold judgement here.

    Maybe we should find a better poster child.

    I meant "all" to mean every trigger point that could push a "leftist" protestors buttons.

    If she has mental health issues, who got her pregnant 5 times?

    There is this mentally challenged woman back home, she is 370lbs 5'6 or so and ugly to boot. She has had at least 4 kids by the local crack head. Point is there is always someone willing.

    I've found that there ain't a hole so disgusting that somebody won't stick a weenie in it.

    Many years ago, I had to use the facilities at work. I sat down and to my horror discovered that the last stall occupant had obviously sat there and jerked off. I couldn't get a shower fast enough.
