    I just don't get it...
    a nut like Trump has a shot at being president...
    cops not going to jail for killing kids and unarmed people.
    drug companies raising the cost of important life saving drugs hundreds of time..

    and then you throw this on top...

    this shit is upside down .. bat shit crazy.

    what next.. 4 horsemen???

    i am worried and scared .. at the direction we are heading..

    Phew boy am I glad I am living in SA now!

    Now that the ANC is crumbling and the evil pyshco racist mass genocide gubbermint is being destroyed - I see the rest of the world as very scary!

    I would have been itching to immigrate and was seriously considering it but after seeing the people changing political stance I am now living in one of the best countries on the planet!! ;D

    Now that the hatred and racism is definitely coming to an end I see no need to go to another country or immigrate as the threat of SA losing it's mind has come to a very happy ending! ... I used to be very worried but now very happy :D:D:D

    Phew!

    The states is looking crazier and crazier as time goes by... I would go on holiday or to visit family... but that's about it though... I think their taxes are far too high... rather just live here in happy land now :D

    Scary stuff...

    lol looks like the states is going to where we used to be!

    Shame very sad indeed... from being the first on the moon to this... I feel for the Yanks.

    Well in their defense, it is West Virginia. In a state where 97.6% of the population share the same DNA, bad decisions are inevitable.

    That Police Chief is blood thirsty. How could this officer who didn't shot put the 2 officers who later did in danger if they weren't even there?

    Because the guy was still alive when they arrived, so they could have been shot? o_O
    The first officer was judged to have done a sub standard job, by not shooting to kill in the first place.

    And then they say that Philippines' war on drugs is ****ed up...

    Feel sorry for the cop for getting fired for not wanting to take a life. Isn't it hard to get a new job as a police if you get fired?

    yeah.. I understand.. that there was a gun in the Victim's hand.
    and the potential for harm is there..
    but the first cop had the situation... in hand.

    and I cant fault the 2 other cops for shooting.. because I don't know what movements had happened.

    but to fire the 1st cop.. is F-ed up.

    does that mean... in all situations.. no matter what...if someone has a gun....
    the cops are trained and ordered.. to fire first???
    F-ed UP!!!!

    *If* the person doesn't drop their weapon when ordered to do so (I guess?)

    the original 911 call.. his gf said he wanted to kill HIMSELF.
    that sets the situation... he is NOT out to hurt others...
    of course the potential is there.. so be careful..
    but NOT to shoot first and ask question later!

    very different .. IF... someone called .. about a man walking around with a gun in hand.
    yelling and pointing at others....
