This looks bad to even me, who generally sees the Black Thug Matter movement as a joke.
Non-lethal force should have been used to take him down. The cop should have been fired long ago, and if this isn’t being manipulated to fool us again, I hope the cop goes down for this. I don’t understand the protests. The cop has been charged, and rightfully so. This isn’t an excuse for them to vent their hatred of white people but if something goes down, this videotape below…just wow.
According to Yahoo News:
The graphic footage of last year’s shooting, taken from a camera mounted on the dashboard of a police car and made public under orders from a judge, sparked mostly peaceful street demonstrations in Chicago on Tuesday.
The clip showed 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who authorities said was carrying a pocket knife and had the hallucinogenic drug PCP in his system, as he was gunned down in the middle of a street on Oct. 20, 2014. McDonald is seen jogging away from patrol vehicles pursuing him from behind, and then veering off diagonally at a walk as two more officers pull up in a squad car ahead of him.

Just because someone appears to be a thug doesn't mean they should die! The thug was the cop in uniform found guilty #laquanmcdonald
