I can't speak for others, but from my view, the officers in this case displayed the proper response to a potentially violent situation with an individual clearly not in her right frame of mind behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. All jokes about Gastonia aside, I have to give these officers proper credit. There are many officers across the country who also apply basic common sense, and de-escalation tactics which prevent the need for a deadly outcome. Unfortunately there is the other side of the coin involving officers who not only lack the proper training, but are thrown into the street too quickly, and are all too willing to want to pull the trigger in too many instances. That is what needs to be changed, and that is what most of the people in here speaking out are referring to. You cannot solve this issue by continually downplaying it, or pretending it isn't happening, like police unions do.
Ben Carson does not belong in politics. It's funny how the Republican party props this guy up just so they can appear diverse. But they vilify Colin Powell, one of the few left in the party who not only is actually reasonable about many issues, but has spoken out about the intolerance of the growing extreme base that has began to make up the Republican party.
By the way, if you really want to make a comparison on "values" in our country... Look at the gofundme page for Javon as it stands now, then look at that bigoted pizza restaurant "Memories pizza" who refused certain services to homosexuals, and how much money they raised from people across the country just for being intolerant. Here I'll just go ahead, and give you the numbers. $842k+ for the bigots. https://www.gofundme.com/MemoriesPizza Less than $7k for a child in need of medical assistance. https://www.gofundme.com/b0jwks
I don't see any reason to attempt to compare these situations other than to further your own "skewed" agenda. To me it would seem we could absolutely prevent our police officers from shooting unarmed individuals in the back while at the same time ensuring that children such as the one in the OP get the proper care they need. You can address more than one problem in this country at a time. If society is doomed, it's because of individuals like yourself who downplay outright murder by our police forces.
It may be Gastonia, be at least the police had the sense not to immediately riddle her vehicle with a barrage of bullet holes, even after using her vehicle as a weapon against them. As for the person filming, beyond stupid.
