From the St. Louis Post Dispatch:
A Berkeley police officer fired at least three shots at a suspect who pulled a gun on him, the St. Louis County Police chief said at a Wednesday morning news conference.
The officer saw two people on the parking lot in the 6800 block of North Hanley Road and began talking with them.
Belmar said one of the people approached the driver's side of the vehicle.
One of the individuals "produced a pistol with his arm straight out, pointing it straight at the officer kind of from across the hood," Belmar said.
At that point, the chief said, the officer got his service revolver "and fired what we think is three shots."...
Between 200 and 300 protesters gathered at the scene after the shooting, and conflicts broke out between officers and protesters, Belmar said.
Four people were arrested for assaulting officers, and at least one officer was injured when he tried to get away from some sort of firework device set off on the parking lot, Belmar said.
Protesters also threw some bricks at officers, Belmar said. Police used pepper spray on the crowd but did not use any tear gas, the chief said.
He also said several police cars were damaged, and some protesters brought bags of rocks to the scene.
As to suggestions that the officer should have used a Taser instead of his gun, Belmar said: "Frankly that's unreasonable." The officer also had a body camera issued to him at the start of his shift, but he was not wearing it. The car's dash-camera was not activated. http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/berkeley-officer-kills-suspect-who-pulled-gun-police-say-victim/article_d45db16a-7422-5307-b81d-b45dbdc896ba.html
So, apparently, the fools and tools protesting this shooting don't care that the thug pulled a gun on the cop.
And because a Black thug was killed because he deserved it, the tools and fools decided that they were going to riot.
We now have a race war and a war against cops and it was brought on by the racist brothers of Barack, Eric, Jesse and Al.
Because of the racist brothers actions, more Black
And in this case, Black lives don't matter: You pull a gun on a cop and you will find yourself dead and out of the DNA pool.
Good bye and good riddance to the black thug who died.
(And if a white thug did the same thing, my feelings would not change- if a white thug pulls a gun on a cop, I hope the white thug gets blown away by the cop.)
