Caught on Tape: Dallas Cop Shoots Mentally Ill Man

On Monday, a Dallas policeman shot 52-year-old Bobby Gerald Bennett in his driveway. Friends of Bennett say Officer Cardan Spencer shot him for no apparent reason.

The incident was caught on a neighbor’s surveillance camera.

Bennett was sitting on a swivel chair, rolling back and forth, when officers came up to him. Bennett then stood up, after which Spencer shot the mentally ill man in the abdomen four times.

if you were'nt a witch, you

I can understand why people

I can understand why people open fire on police when they feel their lives are being threatened by them.

Never Seen It Occur Yet

...the score is still cops: 32,000+?, innocent civili@ns: 0.

Good Point

...he DID h@ve them soiling their undies.

Woot!

I don't have to worry about it because it won't happen to me!

...

Murder. I won't need an attorney or judge to explain it to me. I already know what it looks like.

They will use the knife as a defense

The video shows them kicking something away from the victim. They will say it was a knife. Still not justification for shooting him. Their training says their lives are triple important to the little people and they need to shoot from 20 feet away. But...that is what will happen in court.

I suggest an nice trial, then

I suggest an nice trial, then a short rope from a tall tree for the both of them.
What do you think they will really get?
"Alleged" Murderous bastards.
Now what do you think happens without the video to them?

I don't know why this makes me think of this scene but it does.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

And she sits there and watches.

First she calls the cops and then sits and watches them shoot him.

She is just a guilty as the cops who shot him. I feel no remorse for her.

That's effed up...

You sound like a piece of shit for saying that, how can you be so careless and fucked up in the head? Accusing her? The lady that put forth the video to EXPOSE the police corruption. Just because she called the cops does not mean she condones them coming up and killing the guy, she called them to do their job. It's not her fault they reacted like wild murdering trigger happy animals. Plus you can hear in her voice how she says it's so hard to watch, she obviously feels terrible about it, in fact their commentary makes it apparent they feel the cops were clearly in the wrong.

Hey it's her ignorant fault.

REtard. I feel sorry for the guy but the stupid bitch that called the cops to shoot him deserves no sympathy for her stupidity. How can someone get that old and still be that stupid? I guess you should be able to tell me.

I presume you aren't as old as she but

despite that, how did you get so stupid? It couldn't be just due to your age. It must be due to an inveterate stupidity arising from your nativity.

Police brutality is nothing new

you moron. This woman was an idiot for calling the cops on her own son and you are an idiot for defending her stupidity.

You seem to have a low minded propensity for calling people you

don't know morons or idiots. One might wonder if the reason for this is because you have been called same in the past and probably so, with good reason.

Screw you you infantile self righteous twit.

You jump in the conversation by calling me "Stupid" and then get all high in the back when I point out that you are a moron.

Grow up you little pansy and stop trying to take the high road when you are obviously stuck in the mud. Your ignorance speaks for itself.

And yes I call em as I see em.

You were the first one to use the word stupid, STUPID!

And yes being called a moron by one so stupid is probably complimentary.

And when it comes to taking the high road as pertains to you scumbag it's just as easy as falling off the curb you can never rise above. There's a cure for ignorance but not for stupid, STUPID. Yes you can call them as you see them but who cares what one so stupid sees. It's just another stupid statement by a stupid person who is too stupid to realize that he's just too stupid to realize why he appears to be so stupid.

What should she have done?

What should she have done? Obviously not call the cops in the first place, but alas, most people haven't figured out that your odds of getting killed are far greater the moment a pig shows up.

Still, should she have gone down and wrestled their guns away from them?

Right.

She shouldn't have called in the first place. And I have news for you. If that were my son and someone had called the cops on him for sitting in a chair in the driveway and the cops did what they did here then I would have shot the cops and the bastard neighbor who called them.

if you see a cop approaching you...

you better say your last prayers.

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.
