And judgments from the police or DAs or you are?
Of course not, although police and DAs are more knowledgeable on the matters of law than 12 random people.
But we should look at the actual facts of the case no matter what DAs and juries say. Thing is, you never try to make a reasoned argument from the facts - you always go to questionable arguments from authority.
The facts here are pretty simple: Gaines threatened police with a firearm and was thus a credible threat to police and also to her child who was in the apartment with her. The entire thing is on her. She escalated a situation that was a simple FTA warrant into an armed standoff.
Nice straw man. Apparently you feel unilateral judgments from DAs or the police or you are the paragons of finding out the truth. While I can understand the appeal, it is ridiculous.
I do not think that, which is why this is not a straw man. At least not on my part.
DAs can be wrong. Sometimes they know better, but still do it for political reasons like Mike Nifong (Crystal Magnum) and Paul Howard (Rayshard Brooks), sometimes they are just fallible human beings.
Which is why we should always go to the facts of the case in question.
Like this Lyoya guy: he had fake plates - not just expired plates, but plates belonging to another car, implying criminal intent. Which is why he was stopped.
He had his license revoked, but still drove. He had two open warrants, including for domestic violence.
Instead of coöperating with police, he ran and then fought with the officer for an extended period, including trying to grab the officer's taser.
Those are the facts. Given those facts, why do you think the officer is in the wrong, rather than Lyoya?
Doubling down on the misogyny is not a convincing argument. She is pretty much an arrogant dumbbell.
You have a ridiculously broad definition of "misogyny".
However, upon further reflection, I withdraw me calling her a "bitch". It was uncalled for. The females of canis lupus familiaris
have done nothing to deserve such a comparison. For that matter, neither did free weights.
I'm not the one who has a persistent and irrational animus towards black shooting victims and #BLM.
Animus toward #BLM is quite rational. They are a horrible organization that has set race relations in this country back decades.
I do not have any animus toward Lyoya. I wish he had made better choices and was alive.
I do have an animus toward faux-liberal media that tries to sanitize him and pretend that he had no fault in what happened to him. Take for example NPR.
Patrick Lyoya fled Congo to escape war. A traffic stop in Michigan cost him his life
It's pretty much a hagiography. No mention of warrants or criminal record. Not even of the revoked license. Even the NY Times
piece was much more evenhanded.
Because it fits the facts. Did you even watch the video?
There is no basis in rationality for your conclusion.
You know, argumentation is more than automatic gainsaying of everything the other person says.
Which parts of the paragraph you were replying to do you disagree specifically, and, most importantly, why? Please be specific.
