    Watch this 6:30 min video of the "other" deadly St Louis shooting.

    http://pix11.com/2014/08/21/graphic-cell-phone-video-emerges-in-st-louis-fatal-police-shooting/

    The cops pulled up and shot this guy within 30 seconds. No wonder people don't trust the cops. Total disregard for life.

    Wow, 7 tags in 7 minutes. Who's got a problem?

    Also, this tells me the tagger didn't bother to watch the video.

    As usual, Vitalogy, you make implications that aren't quite accurate. There is a lot more to the story than what you have implied. The guy had just stolen from the store, and the cops were called. They didn't just shoot some guy on the street.

    He was armed with a knife and had it in the air waving it at the cops, threatening them. Could they have handled it differently. Perhaps, but threatening cops with weapons is not the best way to stay healthy.

    One more reason the tags should go away.

    People that post tags like that are childish morons and they suck.

    Perhaps? Ya think?

    Whatever happen to using the billy club? A taser? Or how about letting him rant and rave to himself.

    Shoplifting is not a crime that is deserving of being shot and killed over by the police. I don't personally believe a person waiving a knife around should be shot and killed on the spot.

    The cops were there less than 30 seconds before opening fire point blank.

    Good thing for Rodney King he had his run in 20+ years ago. All he got was a beating. Nowadays the cops just kill you on the spot, no questions asked.
