The woman who got shot didn't get a trial. The link I posted was a month after the incident, this was going to be hushed up if it wasn't for people making a stink. Now maybe there will be a trial. These two had no criminal history, it's not like they had a reason think police might be breaking down their door in the middle of the night. The guy the cops were after was already in a cell. What a royal **** up.

Obviously it's a huge screw up if they went to the wrong house.  That's on the cops. 

I don't know anything about the case.  But in many of these stories all you hear is "white cops shoot unarmed black victim", when sometimes there's more the story.  Like the cops allegedly being shot at first.  But again, that's just an allegation, could be false, that's why there's a trial and witnesses and forensics etc.

In the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, all you heard from the MSM and activists is that the 18 year old unarmed black guy said "don't shoot" after the white cop said "hands up"  and then the white cop shot him in the head dead.  If you read the trial summary what happened is Brown stole from a store and the cop rolled up beside him and questioned him.  Brown then attacked the cop through the cop's open window and reached for the cop's gun, and some shots were fired during the struggle.  Brown was unarmed, but was an 18-year old 300-pound football player, not exactly not dangerous.  The cop then chased him on foot.  Brown suddenly started charging the cop, who then fired shots to put him down.  At no time did Brown say "don't shoot" nor did he ever put his "hands up".  People lied about that, which started the protests.

So now when I hear these incidents go down, I research it instead of believing the headlines and twitter.

Then, in the next sentence:
Wow...   just wow.  If you try and defend yourself, that means the guy with the gun was also defending himself.   That has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read. 

“Well...   she WAS wearing a really short skirt...”.

You don't care about the truth, you only care about the narrative you want to believe.  You're not listening to what I'm saying, you're only hearing what you want to hear.  There's no point in having a brain if the lens you use to filter external inputs is broken.  You let your emotions win over your brain.  That's why you always insult people too, and why you tag posts as dumb.  You're always angry.

If you're getting punched in the face, you're going to shoot to kill in order not to die.  Similar thing happened to Trayvon Martin, who was bashing George Zimmerman's head into the pavement when he was shot.  But George shouldn't have tried to be a cop when he wasn't one, and it led to the fatal confrontation & he should be blamed for that.

You're coming off sounding like you're making excuses for racism. Maybe stop digging an ever bigger hole and move on to a different topic.
