    Default St Louis shooting!

    This happened about noon central time.

    St. Louis, Missouri — St. Louis police shot and killed a man Tuesday just three miles south of Ferguson. According to the police chief, the suspect brandished a knife at officers. No officers were injured and an investigation is ongoing, St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson announced on Twitter. A large group was gathering around the residential neighborhood where the shooting occurred.

    Dotson has confirmed that a black male was shot and killed by two police officers.

    St. Louis police were involved in crowd control in Ferguson during the first days after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer on Aug. 9.

    This is a developing story.

    another racism powder keg. *walks away*

    A man threatens policemen with violence and they fire at him.

    A shooting shouldn't have happened, but the policemen were provoked, and reacted on impulse. Yes somebody has lost his life, however as I have mentioned before, when confronted with violence and potentially grave harm to your person you have to make a split second decision on how to respond. Danger is danger.

    People should be asking what the guy who brandished the knife was thinking in the first place...

    I can't side with the blacks on this one as much as I'd like to criticize the overly-militarized police. The instances of black on white violence is just too damn high.

    The only way two armed policemen could subdue a man with a knife was by killing him? Dear America, not every shot has to be fatal. Wounding usually works as well. Or just use taser guns.

    ^ +1 lolz.

    Cops only practice shooting the heart. I've seen it in the movies. So given the chance to shoot someone, shooting anything other than the heart must feel like breaking a police code.

    people love to defend the police...

    not sure why though.

    people wonder why black people in america hate the police..

    i'd invite them to go to any prison and look around...

    but then again, they'll just say it's because "the blacks" are inherently more criminal...

    or that "the blacks" are just whining...

    colored folk really are a second class citizen in america.

    ah well. it's more a reflection on america than it is on black people.

    Police didn't use tear gas for the first time in days last night. School is delayed and the violence is taking place in residential neighborhoods. It's very sad.
