Full Body-Cam Video Released In Utah Police Killing Of Dillon Taylor

20-year-old Dillon Taylor was shot and killed by Salt Lake City Police August 11, for failing to comply with orders. The department initially refused to release body cam footage of the incident, then released only a spinet showing everything leading up to the killing.

Now, a full version of that disturbing and graphic footage shows an unarmed Taylor being shot before an officer handcuffs his lifeless body as it bleeds out on the pavement.

Taylor, his brother, and cousin were at a 7-Eleven in South Salt Lake City when cops began searching the area for a suspect who was allegedly “waving a gun.”

When the three young men exited the convenience store they were surrounded by officers and ordered to show their hands. Two of the men stopped and complied. Taylor, who was listening to music, seemingly did not hear the officers and kept walking until he was shot and killed, his brother had said at the time.

The footage shows Taylor address officers, with head phones in, and decline to comply with their commands.

Taylor’s brother Jerrail and cousin Adam Thayne were both taken into custody and questioned. Neither were charged in connection with the original call police received. Both young men affirmed Dillion was unarmed and simply went to pull his pants up when police opened fire.

“They say they are here to ‘protect and serve,’ its more like ‘shoot and kill’ because he wasn’t a threat,” brother of the deceased, Jerrail Taylor, said at the time. “He was shot twice right in front of me. There were no guns ever found and there never will be.”

“They were obviously upset. Their friend had been shot and kept screaming for him to wake up, and he never did. He died in the parking lot, they were saying he did not have a gun, and they were very upset because of that,” a witness said.

Officials said Dillion had warrants at the time of the incident, which had been processed a week earlier by a judge for violating his probation. Sgt. Darin Sweeten stated, however, that police unlikely knew prior to the shooting.

In the days following the shooting, Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank said releasing the body-cam footage “would be wholly inappropriate… prior to the officer having some due process.”

A short clip showing the events prior to the shooting was released in September, but now the full version of the footage has been released to the public.

Watch the raw footage (warning graphic):

Officer Bron Cruz had claimed he feared Taylor was reaching for a gun in his waistband and feared for his life. He was cleared of any wrongdoing in late September.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said that Cruz was clearly justified in the shooting, despite the fact that the Taylor was unarmed.

Protests, which had been held in Taylor’s honor last year, are expected to resume.

    Here’s what it sounds like to me: drunk kids walking around get into a confrontation with a driver, he gets pissed and figures, “this isn’t worth my time and I’m too chickenshit to do anything about it anyway, but hey, I’ll just call the cops and say they brandished a gun! That’ll show those punks!” Cops show up mistakenly believing a gun is involved, we see what happens next. If that is how it went down, I hope whoever told the police that the kids had a gun gets what’s coming to him.

    How would private police handle it better? You say, “some dangerous youths brandished a gun at me!” So they… what? Second-guess you? Tell you they can’t prove the kids have a gun, you’re just imagining things, quit being so racist? Is that a service you would pay for?

  • Common Sense

    Last words, “Nah fool….”

    If the Peoe of Salt Lake do not remove and elect a DA to prosecute that LEO to the fullest extent of the law, the citizens deserve every single death that your law enforcement community wroughts upon you and your family. This is a life and death struggle between democracy and tyranny. Tyranny is winning.

    CS:
    The key “lies” in this story are in paragraph 4

    “Taylor, who was listening to music, seemingly did not hear the officers and kept walking until he was shot and killed”.

    Ummmm…..nope

    The video shows clearly that Taylor saw the police, stopped, changed the direction he was going and tried to beat feet from the officers.
    *. Now…before you CBers all start….no, there is nothing illegal in that.

    Of course…there is also paragraph 6 as well:
    “Dillion was unarmed and simply went to pull his pants up”
    Well…first…belts are an amazing thing.
    At the 31 second mark he’s clearly
    Looking rigt at the officer on his right….he knows the police are there and challenging him
    At 32 seconds….he can be seen lookin at the officer behind him and urging around WITH HIS HANDS INSIDE HIS PANTS….not just pulling them up.
    At the 35, 36, 37 second mark his certainly appears to pull something from his pants.

    Now….is this crappy?
    Sure.
    Was he just a dumb drunk kid trying to get away from the police because he was on probation and he had violated that probation….most likely.

    Now you factor in the known info….
    The 911 caller describing 3 individuals just like the 3 encountered….right where the caller said they’d be….and according to that caller…1 had a fiirearm.
    And as soon as one of them sees that police car…he flees.
    When he sees the police are still following him….he shoves his hands down in the front of his pants….where most people carry their illegal weapons.

    I do love the “nah fool” gangsta-ism.

  • RadicalDude

    Phone call not credible – no reasonable suspicion – the police had no legal basis to detain him to begin with.

    United States v. Robinson:
    “Police may rely on the tip of an informant, id. at 146-47, and the degree of corroboration required to establish reasonable suspicion depends on whether the informant’s reliability has been established. United States v. Nolen, 536 F.3d 834, 840 (8th Cir. 2008).”

  • RadicalDude

    http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=000&invol=98-1993

    From Florida v J L:

    “Here, the officers’ suspicion that J. L. was carrying a weapon arose not from their own observations but solely from a call made from an unknown location by an unknown caller. The tip lacked sufficient indicia of reliability to provide reasonable suspicion to make a Terry stop:”

  • RadicalDude

    As usual, the only evidence of criminal wrongdoing implicates the police themselves. The typical police story. Attempted false imprisonment, attempted kidnapping. Second degree criminal homicide. Firearm enhancement.

  • SineNomine

    It’s revolting that the self-identified cops and their bootlicking sycophants have shown up here to celebrate, even gloat, over a cop shooting an unarmed citizen. The depravity and near-psychopathy of these people are disgusting, and the possibility that some of them are cops is terrifying.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    that’s why I continually say over and over that the only good pig is a dead pig. I hope like hell they come looking for me. skinned and burned is the only way they deserve to leave this world.

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Here you go again pointing to irrelevant case law. The police in this case didn’t use an informant as in the manner of the case you posted above, but a complaint called into 9-1-1. Incidentally, the court didn’t find in favor of Robinson – AT ALL.

    I’ll hand it to you though, you didn’t whimp out and play the race card this time.

  • Timothy Dowd

    People need to start forming insurgencies against these police departments. What I would like to see and be a part of is the first armed insurgency in America against the US government. Get the addresses of the corrupt police, prosecutors, and judges, and simply poison them to death. Better yet capture them and slowly torture them to death is better.

    It’s your insecurities that make you scared of me.

    For some strange reason the notion of “justice” as evinced by “skinned and burned” or “hope your death is horrificly painful” doesn’t really appeal…

    There was no firearm. Both of these cops should face the death penalty.

  • chrismalllory

    There was no threat and no reason for the cops to even have their weapons out of the holsters.

    Firing your weapon without identifying your target is a violation of one of the most basic rules of firearm safety. They did not ID a weapon. They committed murder, PERIOD.

  • Grumpy

    Oh, yeah: you’re really gonna build a just society that way. Will the death by torture be in the public square so all can enjoy?

  • Isn’t that exactly what happened to Dillon Taylor? An unarmed kid minding his own business was basically executed and left on the ground as a Public Spectacle at a convienence store??

    It’s the T O T A L I T Y of the circumstances.

    The call about the gun alone?
    The behavior in the street?
    The flight upon seeing the police?
    The shoving his hands down deep into his pants upon seeing the police?
    His continued flight from the police after clearly understanding the voice commands?

    If you pull those all apart….maybe this looks bad for the police.
    But when seen as the TOTALITY of what was going on…it’s quite clear that the officer made the correct decision.
    Remember…the officer doesn’t have let the other guy kill him.

    More poorly trained “cops” shooting people because they are afraid of their own shadows, cowards and the emotionally defective seem to flock to their local PD.

  • Nick Barone

    Chris Burbank is a jackbooted thug. There has never been a shooting he didn’t condone. Just ask the owner of Geist.

  • RaeRae

    Im just saying, If you don’t want shot, do what they ask… He was being cocky, walking away… u can’t tell me he didn’t see them before he started walking in the opposite direction… If he didn’t have a gun then why avoid the cops? They had every reason to believe he had one, and he had his hands in his pants, etc… I’m not saying its right, but damn! it wasn’t horribly wrong! The cop was doing his job… Get a grip!!

  • steve

    No Common, however being a policeman has it’s ups and downs , you must always keep a composure and let the trash talk roll off your back without showing signs of feelings. You know that the cop that shot the young man is suffering from guilt right now. He knows he made an error and did the cowboy up thing. You can hear him say man what were you reaching for while searching for a gun or weapon and finding nothing.Then to hear him say the final words to that young man. The guy was wearing headphones and could not hear the commands and the cowboy thing does not include any of these circumstances in training. Wouldn’t your position include trying to win over these young people and build a better spirit. This site is already filled with so much anti establishment and stupid fodder.don’t add to the fire. The worse idiot on this site is JC he is not in law enforcement.

  • Im A Ram

    He couldn’t hear him you fuckwit…as far as he’s concerned he had done nothing and didn’t realize there was a sick fuck brandishing a firearm at him until he was lying in a pool of his own blood.

    People, please gun up against police brutality. Shoot them back, don’t be afraid. Gather yourselves at courts for them to hear your pain. This video shows a guy packing off from the gun. Cops just came from behind, called his name and shot him. I swear give me the name of this Utah Cop i will go count how many teeth he has in his mouth.

  • Castor troy

    Send the police overseas, since they are so trigger happy……. wait they will protest, police won’t go to a place where the citizens can and will shoot back……They will fear for they life….. fucking cowards

  • steve

    Your not going to convince any one that this was a clean shooting and yes Im sure that his .18 bac helped the young man make extremely poor decisions that contributed to his death. However the shots came to fast in a judgement that ended up be very poor and took a young mans life unneccesaryly.Your callousness towards this death is riding on the level of JC.

    Nah fool, this is what they have to tell you in the Academy for you to understand that you are not dealing with criminals but minor misdemeanors. I have been through academy and you know why i quit, because i saw how people are being trained with Military Force, to put down a person with a gun. In 3 months of training, but once we got on the field to practice fighting, boxing, knocking. However in 3 months i already knew all about guns, how to assemble and shoot them. Fuck you and the whole POLICE place you work. You are a bunch of fools are that are afraid for your lives to be even punched in a face, you get your guns out and start shooting. Thank god i have a gun now to shoot fckers like you.

  • i am a bull

    I like the fact that i wanted to be a police officer and i am very thankful i went to college and graduated, got some brains in my head. Got common sense, got money, got friends. Now looks like all cops are no smarter than a Highschool “D” grade, and i bet more than half of police force in America wont even be able to explain what combustion is without looking into dictionary.

    Excuse my logic: It seems to me (by the facts of the situation that transpired,) that the real training/consequences of these actions should fall on who ever the hell called or stated “Yes, they are waving a gun in peoples faces.” Did that take place or did the dispatcher make it all up? The LEO is not able to just make up items out of thin air in order to show up to ANY scene? “Ghee, I feel like going to 7-11 and killing some one today.” or “1Adam12 please respond to 7-11 for a report of 3 young thugs waving a gun.” THERE and only there, lies the responsible party. The 7-11 employee, a bystander? Who, in Zues’s ASS called to LEO to respond via a description of “waving a gun?” FOLKS, It does matter. LEO protocal, dictates how actions are taken. LEO does’t make them up on the fly. Lastly, NO I am not across the board taking up for them, I am using the LOGIC I was blessed with to think for myself, that NOE of you will take the time to read.

    And you are so easily manipulated.

    By all means, don’t read that the police cars, all 3 had overhead lights on, that all officers were in full uniform, and don’t read that Dillion was wanted (he knew, the police didn’t) and that the 911 caller said that saw a handgun twice, not “I thought is saw a handgun.” Never fear, regardless of any situation involving the police, you can always blame them as there will always be another way to have handled any situation.

    Tragic however this may have been, and regardless of how you may loath me and my comments, the fact is this; the police get it right more than they get it wrong.

    The other officer was in a better view of whether or not he was grabbing something. He never shouted anything about a gun, he just stood there. You would think BOTH officers would have drawn on him if they both seen the “same” threat. This is bullshit! If you’re ever drawn on by cops, just pray, because chances are you are going to die, no matter what you do. You’re at their mercy. If they feel like killing you, they can.

  • Victor Emanuelle

    When an LEO demands U show ur hands don’t be a fool. Show ur hands comply and even let them cuff U onto they have the complete story. Every time a LEO responds to a scene it can be any variety of reasons. Comply and U will be safe and protected.
    DA can’t convict b/c the law wasn’t broken. An LEO can only react not act, inherently putting them at a disadvantage. That is why the Law allows an LEO to use lethal force if they believe their life is in danger.

  • diggerdude

    You sound like the useless idiot that is the reason people are starting to shoot back. It won’t be such a joke when you clowns are actually fearing for your life rather than using it for a fucking excuse to pull the trigger on innocent taxpayers….

    ….oh, and the Civilian Review Panel always agreed the use of force (ie killing) was lawful as well. Just in case you didn’t actually read any thing other than what’s posted.

    If you are required to carry a weapon, such as a gun for you job…you should be trained to use it AND how to save a life of someone inflicted with a wound from said weapon! He looked at the exit wound and applied NO direct pressure to control the loss of blood! Sad all around. He should not get off, he should be held fully accountable for his rash actions.

  • dbwells

    And you suck cop cock, please choke and die on it next time to spare the world of your weak minded genes.

  • it’s not illegal to have a gun in that city so who gives a fuck is someone calls 911 to report seeing someone walking with a gun. the cops know it’s legal to walk with a gun but don’t care show up to kill.

  • This is very sad, I also see a lot comments where people are angry with all the police I really do not no what I would have done in that situation. One thing People should request that Police departments are trained to use non lethal force first after all life is more important than finding out who has a illegal fire arm which if you ask me there is no such thing all men and woman should have the right to bears arms if they so choose, perhaps using a taser in this situation would have saved this young mans life.

  • One_more_angry_person

    It’s simple:you’re too stupid to manipulate a test. You don’t have “too high an IQ”, they’re just telling you that so that you don’t cry when you’re rejected. You also didn’t win an Olympic medal because you’re just TOO athletic, it’s unfair to the others!

  • StillCantBanMe

  • Tammy Cauley

    If you are reaching for something when the cops call u down. put yourself in the cops shoes.. the initial call was about someone waving a firearm.. really sad he couldn’t of been tasted or something.. but fearing for my own life as I was attempting to serve and protect I would of probably done the same thing

  • YoMama!!!

    Becoming a cop happens when you’re living in mom’s garage after high school. Getting high & drunk with your buddies. And here comes dad with two options: 1. Get a job! or 2. Move out! Those are the ones who become cops!!!

  • StillCantBanMe

    Did you even finish high school? Your grammar says “probably not” or “barely”.

  • Jack Bolton

    Police no longer need to be armed, period. They have shown that they are not responsible enough to carry firearms.

  • JHoughton1

    Unreal. .The guy was obviously on his earbuds. I didn’t see him “reaching” — interesting how the other cop affirmed “I saw him reaching” as if getting their story straight. The most disgusting part is the shooter saying “Stay with me, buddy.” Right, after you just shot him in the back you’re his concerned buddy. Just sickening. (On further review I see I was mistaken that he was shot in the back. Still, we need cops who are less nervous and who are trained to pull their guns out as a very last resort.)

  • JustPassingThrough

    Tammy, you look like a gorgeous girl, but after reading your comment, that’s probably all you have going for you!!!

  • JHoughton1

    No, man. You’re just as bad as they are. The only good cop is a good cop. We have to hire a different kind of person, train them to make pulling their guns a very last resort.

    He wasn’t shot in the back, it was in the stomach and face.

  • hj7

    This poor man was shot whilst unarmed for trying to hear what the cop was saying, what makes it even more sickening is the cop makes very little effort to save him…. Applying little pressure to the wound he wasn’t bleeding out from, that right there is murder!! And if it had been Dillon who shot the cop would everyone be asking him if he was ok after… Yet another trigger happy cop and a murder victim that will never get the justice the deserve

  • RadicalDude

    Lol @ thinking an informant isn’t an informant just because they do the informing over the phone.

  • bobaganoosh

    On what planet does manipulating a test to make your self seem dumber make any bit of sense?
    “We are going to put you in charge of people lives. However we only want people SMART enough to manipulate a test to seem like a retard to apply for this position. And we will assume you manipulated it if you pass. Because I mean who on earth goes to a job and purposely makes themselves seen retarder than they is? Ams Iright?”
    (And yes for the Bacon Bits in the audience I puposefully made that last bit so you caould unnerstan.)

  • Lindah Sutton

    Then they say stupid ish like “Talk to me.” Really? Just what universe do all these scary, idiot cops come from?

  • RadicalDude

    Exactly. So that was BEFORE this stuff happens:

    “The behavior in the street?
    The flight upon seeing the police?
    The shoving his hands down deep into his pants upon seeing the police?
    His continued flight from the police after clearly understanding the voice commands?”

    So none of those factors apply to the initial detention. Which leaves you with this for the initial decision to detain him:

    “The call about the gun alone?”

    Which the court said is insufficient. So the detainment was illegal from the outset.

  • bobaganoosh

    The asterisks or little star thangs, are there for people who want to obey a law. A cop such as yourself should know that there are cyber bullying laws. And things called indecent exposure which if convicted of makes you a sex offender for life. Depending on your state and its laws, everything you are doing is of course typical bacon bit double standard law breaking.
    You are now a criminal do the honorable thing and turn in your badge and admit your crime. Be judged and show us all what a Courageous man you are. Or is this a case of self projection on to others?

    Callous as it may sound….the officer was right in cuffing him.
    Yes….in this instance the chest shot really took care of business. But we aren’t doctors or Paramedics.
    We can’t declare people dead.
    The officers summoned EMS for him as they should have.
    And the very minimalist first aid kits we generally carry have nothing for this type of injury. That why EMS gets called. .

  • Mobey Dick

    Well I know a cop got a firearm, maybe we should shoot first and ask question later!

    He turned around in the video and saw a cop with a gun and kept walking. If his back was turned he wouldn’t have gotten shot in the chest.

Documented proof that they are the Biggest Gang in any City!!!!!

  • Smitty Johnson

    “In the days following the shooting, Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank said releasing the body-cam footage “would be wholly inappropriate… prior to the officer having some due process.” WTF is this? They don’t bother with our due process when they perp walk a person in jail or going to court. They don’t bother with our due process when they release statements to the press. They don’t protect ordinary citizens information pre-trial/hearing. They WANT the public against the suspect, it makes the conviction easier.

  • Bobby

    Fact one the kid turned around and faced the cop. Seeing a gun pointed at you is reason enough to stop walking and put your hands up. He didn’t. He kept walking away and reached for something. Your right to assume it was his phone to turn down his music but you only know that because they didn’t find a weapon. At the time there was nothing to suggest that he wasn’t pulling a gun. You can’t say he was walking away because he turned around. That is how the shots ended up in his chest and stomach.

  • Mark Walker

    I would have shot him too. I’m from the hood. If a guy is walking away from you with his hands in his pants and then turns around with his hands still in his pants and sees a gun pointing at his head and his response is “Whats up fool?!” that is a threat. I would have felt in danger too. It’s unfortunate but when he saw the officer with gun he should have put his hands up. My motto is IF ONLY ONE OF US IS GOING HOME TONIGHT IT’S GONNA BE ME.

  • craigbbopper

  • PHenry

    First watch of the video, this looks like murder.

    Reading of the documentation available:
    1. Police looking for a man whom a 9/11 caller says was “flashing a gun” and was with two other men.
    2. The police previously saw three men, who match the description, involved with a stopped motorist and it appears they may be causing a ruckus. Police wait for back up and watch men going into store.
    3. All three men come out store just as police arrive and one of them, Taylor (who knows there is a warrant for him and knows he has been drinking, possibly buzzed), changes directions and walks away from police.

    Second watching of video confirms the three coming out store and Taylor stopping, then heading the other way, which the officers had to have witnessed. It is suspicious behavior, on top of everything else, that draws their attention to him. It is incredibly stupid, in this day and age of militarized police who shoot at the drop of a hat, to test one’s luck.
    That being said, the officer was awfully quick to shoot when it was not entirely clear there was a weapon.

    Looks like a toss-up to me, one that unfortunately resulted in a death as well as trauma to others.

  • Evan Boland

    Shut up you conformist bitch

  • Just don’t feed the idiots. cop block has become a sh1t magnet for boot lickers and their stupidity. It’s disgusting to think that this cop assumed since Dillon was walking away from him that he was the suspect

  • Andy Martin

    The moral of the story is, do something stupid and you can die.

    And I suppose you would have figured out he didn’t have a gun while he had his back to you and was reaching into his waistband, right? It’s easy to say dumb shit from the comfort of your laptop.

  • Andy Martin

    Good thing this idiot was killed. Gotta cull the herd.

  • Steve Madden

    I understand that cops have a tough job, keeping us safe. But why shoot? There was no gun present. Just because he reached for his pocket? This police state is getting ridiculous…

  • Grumpy

    I agree the officer should not have fired without actually seeing the alleged weapon.

    So, what form(s) of public execution by torture do you favor? A suspended cage over a bonfire would give spectators the best view as long as there wasn’t too much smoke…

  • RM

    Tammy, they always “fear for their life”. Even when they jump up on the hood of a car and pump 15 rounds into already lifeless bodies.

    If they are so afraid that they can’t think clearly enough to reason and act purely institutionally like a pack of wild dogs they shouldn’t be on the streets pretending to protect and serve.

  • enohp660

    This is a case of some young punk trying to be a tough guy. He knew the officer was there to confront him and he walked away. Ok, no crime there but to have your back to a cop that’s repeatedly saying show me your hands and then to go into your waistband is boarder line retarded. I’d like one of you anti cop people to explain why he would put his hands into his waistband.

  • Grumpy

    Two types of people you shouldn’t listen to: liars and the uninformed.

    Which type are you, J. “shot him in the back” Houghton?

  • Grumpy

    Really? How many cops shot by legal gun owners last year in states with open carry?

  • RM

    So you’re advocating for people to manipulate the test? So that kind of person can go on to manipulate the situation until it becomes a crime scene which they then go on to manipulate further?

    That makes perfect sense.

    You’re welcome, but there was nothing “attempted” about it. You ran your mouth when you didn’t know what you were talking about: in what universe should people who do that be taken seriously?

  • JHoughton1

    “Excuse me, I realize that was a pretty murky tape, so you might want to take another look. I think you’ll see he was approaching the officer, not walking away.” Then again, you’re Grumpy and you have your rep to consider.

  • Me

    He shot him for nothing then hand cuffed him, this cop needs to be put to death!

  • Grumpy

    Then again, you’re standing there with egg on your face and have your rep to restore.

    Do I correctly understand you? The guy who posted bullshit on a politically incendiary an literally life-and-death issue is upset he wasn’t corrected with sufficient politeness?

    If you’re going to suggest what I should have said, may I do the same? If you’d ended your “You are right” post after the word “up” I’d have upvoted you and walked away.

  • Mike

    The cops are LAZY!!! Shoot first, never ask questions!! They executed an innocent man, and get away with it. If they are that fearful for their lives, find another job. Why didn’t they just run after him, he was just walking away slowly, or why didn’t they run in front of him, because they are lazy and know they will get away with murder!

  • JHoughton1

    And if I’d realized I was dealing with someone who’s never made a mistake, I probably would have done that. After all, I live for your upvote.

  • Brian O’Connell

    Words of advice, righty tighty whitey.

    When i saw the still picture I thought half his face had been shot away: it really does look like it. After watching the video I came to the same conclusion you did, that it was from laying in a pool of blood.

  • allen

    the cop was justified in the shooting but all the cops two or three which are first aid and cpr certified shouldve immediately jumped into trying to save his life by starting first aid to keep him alive long enough until the paramedics arrived. I believe in some states if your cpr and first aid certified and you dont save a dieing person you can be punished. I believe all three cops shouldve been kicked off the force for not trying to save a dieing man. once the scene was declared safe their job is to protect and serve. protect life by any means possible. all three cops failed their job and are pathetic honorless cops that dont need to be on the force. the only reason why they didnt do this IMO is because their was to much blood. if you dont want to get bloody dont be a fucking cop. yeah you can catch deseases and shit but thats your fricking job. your life on the line to save the lives of others. if your not willing to put your life on the line in any situation you dont deserve to be a fricking cop. honor integrity and all that. live by actions not by bullshit. those cops suck and they know it. they know they were in the wrong a man lost his life and it was their fault.

  • Kade Rushing

    I hate pigs but shut the fuck up he had his hands concealed after he told him to take them out …the man was acting irresponsible in a high intensity situation his fault ..the cop was thinking him or me and instinct took over.

  • James Fitch

    Well that video goes to show you punks with your pants sagging to wear a belt and you won’t have to have them inside your pants holding them up. That takes away any risk of getting shot for allegedly gunning in the streets. On another note, a serious note. That is a sad waste of life, that poor young man is dead and his family is living without him. He was acting in the manner an ex con would act. These cops are t going to tell you over and over again and continue to let you carry on in what ever fashion you see fit. They have a dangerous job to do. They want to go home at the end of their shift just like that kid wanted to go home. Stop with the ignorance when you’re in contact with the police. If that kid had complied this video would not be big news. Since he decided to do things his way, it ended up bad for everybody. Don’t think that cop is out putting hash marks on his car for shootings of citizens. He’s not going to ever forget pulling that trigger, ever. It will haunt him the rest of his days. It would me I’m sure. So instead of being a neo nazi, criminal or whatever you are being to make you hate cops. Just be respectful and polite.

    All cops have a tough guy mentality because, as I stated, they don’t have to worry about repercussions. It’s easy to do illegal sh!t or have a shoot first mentality when you know that the worst you’re going to get is a paid vacation while your peers “investigate” you. And I get it, you’re either a cop or a cop apologist. Either way, you have your head up your a$$, and this is an argument that is going to lead to nowhere.

    Neither. I just have more sense than you. The fact that you want to label all of anything as being one way tells me all i need to know about you. So ok, all black people steal, don’t take care of their kids and smoke Newports. I’m black and I don’t do any of that but ok. All white people smell like wet dogs, shoot up schools and are afraid of black people. ALL OF THEM. all Asians have little dicks and are great at math. All Mexicans are lazy although I see a bunch of them here in New York with 3-4 jobs. The point is that you sound ignorant by saying all cops are any particular way. The majority of cops want to do their job and go home like everyone else.

    Hey pigs on this website. Do not think you are safe. I know of civilian stalking groups keeping tabs on corrupt cops. And these civilian groups can have you slowly killed by stalking you and covertly poisoning you to death. These groups also have access to microwave weaponry that can slowly cook you alive through your bedroom walls like the dirty swine you are.

    No, I completely disagree. Marines are trained extremely well to not shoot people. Sometimes, even if they are armed, and have been shot at already. Real, “Peacekeepers,” know how to chose their battles. Most police are police because they couldn’t get into the armed forces, or they were soldiers. (Soldiers are not Marines) Very few soldiers are are actually trained on how to engage people. This is where that shoot first, ask questions later thing comes from.

  • Martin Smith

    There is no legitimate reason to shoot a person until you are being shot at. Police have tasers too. Shooting somebody you think might have a gun, instead of actually seeing a gun first is actually a very cowardly thing to do.

  • James Smith

  • Jill Hodges Betts

    Do you need glasses? Anyone can see he was pulling up his pants. And had you done the same then you also deserve to die because that was murder.

  • Jennifer

    Whats aweful is he shows no remorse or even an attempt to save the mans life until the other cop mentions the body cam. Also why was he still cuffed? He was unconscious and was obviously no longer a threat (not that he was to begin with). Had the cop immediately uncuffed him laid him on his back and applied pressure to the wound that would have allotted enough time for the medics to get there and take over. The guy had headphones in probably didn’t hear the cop. And his hands were already in his pockets. He never “reached” for anything. Cops are trained to be more observant than that. This was simply a cowardly, lazy cop lacking regard for human life. A Sociopath hiding behind a shield. The lack of response shows that.

  • Common Sense

    Actually I stand corrected, it was the stomach (actually the round went through his hand/finger – that was in his waistband) and the other was the chest, not the face.

    Why? Dillon defied orders to put his hands up, his hands went into his waist band. The cop being on a “Man with a Gun Call” provided ample opportunity for Dillon to comply before discharging his firearm. BTW: If Dillon could not hear (do to headphones) , why did he turn around and face the cop, who was clearly pointing a gun at him. It obvious that you put your hands up when a cop has his gun pointed at you. Also, the second cop didn’t shoot, so why are you implicating him?

  • pipeliner52

    You guys that are talking Sh#@#@###@ about the how the cops are just out to shoot first and ask questions later need to realize that every single law enforcement related shooting that has been splashed all over the news as of late as been a due to a direct result of that person not complying with orders, and acting in some aggressive manner. BOTTOM LINE ” if you are stopped by the police do exactly as they say and keep your hands where they can see them” problem solved. Today’s policemen are a direct result of the environment they are forced to work in. They don’t have time to play 20 questions you, so the safest thing to do is immediately comply and you will go home instead of the hospital or worst the funeral home.

    Good way to get shot, disobey orders, become combative by saying “what up fool” making body moments such as reaching into your waist band that make it appear you have a gun. Sad this kid died but he did everything wrong that caused his own death.

  • varex morgan

    Tricky; however ultimately his partner understood the situation better than the shooting officer. The partners calls just before the shooting ” get on the ground”. This was the most appropriate command do to the suspect, for whatever reason now has his hands in his waistband. Simply put the primary order given at the latter of the confrontation was conflicting with the officers safety and as a result lead to an unsafe exit for the suspect. Case -> Officer: Get your hands out . Suspect: I’m not moving. Officer: Get em out now. Suspect: Complies but the orientation of the suspect as the command is carried out made the cop shouting the command uncomfortable.

  • Ricky Gransee

    Because his hands were holding his pants up even before he turned around, he then turns around still with his hands in/on his pants, when the officer told him to put his hands up again he struggled to get them up and one caught and lifted his shirt. As soon as he turned around the cop should have stopped approaching him and allowed his partner to get caught up and cover from a different angle. Then tell him to slowly put his hands up. This wasn’t justifiable homicide. And I am a firm Conservative that served six years in the Army and went to Afghanistan (not sure why everyone thinks serving in the Military or what your political views are matters when commenting on these things. The facts are the same either way).

  • Laura W

    It never ceases to amaze me how police departments are always saying how they don’t understand why people aren’t more sympathetic when a police officer is injured or killed. Well it is their fault. Social media has exposed their brutality towards people and their pets on a daily basis and with everyone armed with a camera they will continue to be exposed. Their own actions have desensitized people to what happens to them—-and for those who aren’t yet desensitized it is just a matter of time. Police openly break the law without consequences daily as evidenced by all the available video online and they wonder why they are not given any respect. You have to give it to get it.
    A policeman used to be someone you could look up to and go to for help but not anymore. Now people tend to take care of themselves rather than call the police due to their lack of trust in the police. I have known some very good policemen in the past but can’t say too much about now. I keep seeing the words “Police State” used to describe people’s respective police department which doesn’t bode to well for policemen. Again you have to give respect to get it…….

  • Keletor

    He was facing him when he shot him, and he was doing what the officer told him to do… So he was shot for being complicit. The officer should have made him go to his knees then lay on the ground if he “feared” a gun was present. Frisk and cuff. Not hard, this cop should at least be put back into the academy again if not taken off the street completely.

  • Keletor

    The officer said clearly TAKE YOUR HANDS OUT, he did just that. Also he had headphones in… I mean you really can’t see this for yourself?

  • Michael

    And I’m tired of the people who jump to conclusions based on what the fucking media says. On top of the fact, none of you will do anything about it. Just sit at your damn comp screens bitching about it like that’s going to accomplish something

  • Sophia Yang

    That boy did not deserve that. He wasn’t paying attention bc he had headphones on. He didn’t realize the seriousness of what the cop was doing to him. The cop was too trigger happy. Why didn’t the cop use a taser? That was not appropriate at all and I don’t care what anyone else says. That poor guy did not deserve to get shot and killed like that. Then cuffed while dying.
    Im usually on the cops side but this victim didnt try to hurt the officer. Just acted like an idiot who should have been tased instead. Who does that cop think he is fooling..

  • Michael

    Yes. This is tiresome. Cops killing people. But the only side we hear from is the media. You know, the ones that like to skew the facts to make better headlines and get more views. The ones that show only the non whites getting killed so we can stay glued to the news and flip out about it even though we truthfully all know that there’s always more to it than what we see.
    You know what else is tiresome? Most of you. You cant even wait to hear the whole thing or do even just a little bit of research on something before throwing your high and mighty and most of the time self righteous opinions around like your one opinion amongst millions of others even matters. Or just go with what the majority are saying so you don’t feel left out even though you may have no idea whats even going on. Pull your heads from the medias ass already.
    You all act as though this is something that has just started happening. People die by cops all the time. Just because you’re unarmed doesn’t automatically make you innocent. Cops don’t just roll up on someone and blast the hell out of them just because they feel like it or are having a slow day. Yes there are a few that might but unlike what the media and you try to make it sound, it’s not all of them. If you don’t want to be put into a situation like this then stop doing shit that brings the cops to you. These turds are out there doing something stupid and or criminal, resist arrest, run from the cops, fight the cops, yada yada and then sit there wondering why they got their ass beat or in some cases shot. As for this guy, if the cops are on my ass for something, my hands would be fully visable and nowhere near my pants. You wound think that after so many getting shot because of that they would have learned by now. I don’t give a crap if your pants are falling down, I would rather have my pants at my ankles and hands in the air than dead. If your pants are that much of a problem then get a belt or better fitting pants. Sagging was a thing in the nineties that should have stayed in the nineties. I don’t even understand how it’s still a thing when it seems to be a hindrance to those wearing it. Just dumb. Stop being a hoodlum if you don’t want to have to deal with cops. It’s simple

  • Chuck

    You’re just seeing what you want to see. Watch the video again. Pause it before the shooting, open it up to full screen, click the gear at the bottom and set the speed to .25 (slo-mo). He turns around to face the cop for several seconds and he CLEARLY lifts his shirt. He NEVER touched his pants.

  • Chuck

    He turned around and was looking right at the cop for several seconds when he grabbed for his shirt and tried to act like a bad ass in front of his friends. Did you miss the part about “cops began searching the area for a suspect who was allegedly “waving a gun.”” You don’t bring a taser to a possible gun fight. The headphones are totally irrelevant.

  • Koob

    Nonsense. It was a mistake. If the cop guessed that the kid did not have a gun–and was wrong–either him or his partner could be dead. He had to be on edge. YOU, on the other hand, had the luxury not to be.

    Only in America . Its Disgusting . They are not cops they are criminals . A lot of European countries cops don’t even carry guns…

  • Rich-D

    Look closer, the cops partner was in position on the right of the officer. The officer proceeded forward because Dillon was backing away. Dillon hand lifted his shirt in the middle of his stomach which did not indicate he was in the process of raising his hands! Tragic incident, however it was Dillon’s actions that caused his demise!

  • imBATMAN

    he most likely head some commotion and wanted to see what was going on

    What kind of dumb kid, while he has a fucking cop pointing a fucking gun and yelling at him, turns around to face said cop as said cop is yelling at him, decides to strut backwards, and decides to reach his hand in his front waist? Come on! Was he begging to get shot? I’m sorry but there’s no “justice” to be found here. One unnecessary death for a kid lacking in intelligence and common sense. He didn’t notice of the cop pointing a gun at him with his eyes because of his music? Please. All I can do is shake my head at the whole thing.

  • Richard Thompson

    He didn’t take his hands out. He reached his hand in the waistband. I know, to turn his music down right? You don’t need your ears to see a cop pointing a gun at you. And what do cops do when kids reach for the front of their waist? Dumb kid got shot because he be dumb, yo’.

  • Richard Thompson

    And what, there are no good humans as well? Your distorted view of society is disturbing. There are good cops, like there are good people and sociopaths. You know, a few years ago, I was beaten and robbed by two guys in broad daylight surrounded by many people in a very busy city. Not one of them helped me. Only a cop who was driving by and saw the commotion helped me out and arrested the two guys. Everyone else had their fucking cell phones out. I yelled and plead. The cop was at least compassionate and did what he could. Yes, I recognize there are bad cops an am not blind to this. Those cops can eat a bullet. And yes, the system isn’t perfect. I recognize this and am pragmatic to the issues at hand. But there are good cops who have an unbelievably difficult job, and I have a first hand experience with one, and to simply go on an angry tangent and broadly brush everyone with a single stroke is disingenuous, and implies you’re the type of person that would give in to a mob mentality. I would not trust or hope to rely on a guy like you to help any kind of person out.

  • MrJackAmano

    Don’t dick around with cops. It’s that simple. When the man said to get his hands out he should have gotten his hands out. Why are people so dumb and stubborn. This is your life, don’t play around with it for Pete’s sake. All he had to do was put his arms out in the open and he’d be alive today. Cop should have shot at his leg or something, but still all this could have been avoided if this man didn’t act like an idiot.

  • Matt C.

    The guy was wearing earphones listening to music so he only heard the cop when he screamed at him. Then he turned around, saw the gun and went to raise his hands from his pockets. The cop didn’t wait to make sure his hands were empty.

  • Davis Miller

    I don’t care how “tough” a cop is. This guy is going to live with this for the rest of his life. All his buddies will be in support of him but deep down he will play out that moment over and over again and wonder why would happen if he acted differently. This will eventually eat him up inside if he is a good man. From the video, he does seem like a person with a good heart unlike other cops I’ve seen who shoot unarmed people then send their K9 to bite to add insult to injury.

  • DrEnuf

You sow grief, you will reap grief; you know not when or how, but it is a given, that your harvest day is going to show up one day…

  • Jay Stephenson

    He clearly had no gun or weapon of any type the cop could have shot him in the leg or tazered him. There was no need to fear for his life what so ever he should take the death penalty. Police officers should try any other action before shooting to kill he could have easily hit him somewhere non-lethal

  • ELITEGEEKS

    Cops should never shoot till they see a gun/weapon, they have a vest. They already have the drop. they get paid for risk, not a guess, Without a badge If walk down the street start shooting people randomly claiming I thought they were reaching for a weapon am I justified? nope.. BUT if I was targeted and I saw a GUN would I be Justified? Damn Right.

  • Austin Brookman

    Demise my ass what ever happened to shooting to wound rather than to kill. Ample enough time to stun n snatch a weapon specially being that close. This cop was trigger happy n automatically stereotyped the situation. There’s not a good enough reason to do what n how he did……. However I agree Dillan was in the wrong by not complying. Regardless it all could’ve been handled different.

  • Austin Brookman

    You forgot having these wannabe kids purchase a damn belt n pulling up thier damn pants. Such a disgusting, pathetic, and embarrassing trend.

  • Fiona1933

    It is not a disgusting trend. It began due to the racism of prison guards. Young black men walked into prison all cocky, with their shoulders back and their heads high. So the guards had them remove their belts and laces, ostensibly against suicide. But that’s bullshit, because anyone could rip up their shirt for a noose. No, it was done so the cocky young men would suddenly have to shuffle in laceless shoes and grab their trousers to hold them up: this makes the shoulders drop and the head drop too. Now they look like what? A coffle of slaves, shuffling shackled along and doubtless, this sparks something engraved in the DNA from 250 years of slavery. It immediately knocks all the pride and sauce out of them and makes them no longer free men, but into the descendants of slaves.
    So these bright young black men instinctively turned it back on the racists. They made this disgrace into a fashion statement. And best of all, the descendants of the slave-holders…the rich white kids, who drink the blood of slaves every day with their orange juice, began to copy it. Began to pay big money to descendants-of-slaves rap artists for their fashion lines of baggy pants.
    This is an awesome thing and every right-thinking person should applaud the defiance and creativity of the young men. Its cool as fuck, is what it is.

    You and I both know that’s not what the video shows. He heard him just fine because he responded to the officer by saying “no,fool” when he was instructed to show his hands.

  • Roseann Cobb

    Having a gun isn’t illegal, no law was ever broken for them to even go looking for someone.

  • Tom Sullivan

    I have tried to put myself in the cops shoes, but unfortunately I didn’t succeed. Maybe my IQ is way too high to be able do so. As for your attempt to defend the indefensible, the only things these serial doughnut eaters “protect and serve” is their own jobs and the money-grabbing shakedown rackets of their political masters.

  • Tom Sullivan

    Not everyone who despises this burgeoning police state is a “lefty”, sheep-boy.

  • Keni Kash

    What happen to a warning shot and why did he shoot to kill dillion .. they think becuz they got a badge they have more rights than the average….. And why did he put him in hand cuffs , he wasn’t doing a good job on trying to stop the bleeding … They are suppose to protect and serve not kill and conquer… Pretty soon there will be a war on the police …. When it’s there turn, then white America going say he had a family , what about his wife and kids …. But they not caring about the young adults they are killing … The world is going to get harder to live in

  • Roseann Cobb

    It’s not illegal to carry a gun so to begin with there was never a crime committed for the cops to investigate, or detain, or question anyone on to begin with.

  • Keni Kash

    You stupid

  • Tom Sullivan

    To some of these cop-loving sycophants, anything less than total adulation towards the badge-wearing, doughnut-eating tribe is a crime.

  • Tom Sullivan

    So wearing pants that don’t fit your preferred style is now a capital crime?

  • Keni Kash

    Why are people justifying some body getting kill that’s not no one call to kill some one God is the creator that’s his call only… Peopl . Have some crazy opinion about some one getting killed but as soon as it’s one of there’s it will be liked at different story… then it will be why my family ….

  • Tom Sullivan

    When cops truly fear for their lives and I mean really fear for their lives every day they leave home, that’s when they’ll stop doing shit like this.

  • Aly

    Nope, not even close to true.

  • Keni Kash

    I so much agree when it’s there turn the world going to turn

  • Tom Sullivan

    And another moron who thinks not listening to low-IQ doughnut-eating plebs with badges and guns is a capital crime is here to justify their cowardly actions.

  • Tom Sullivan

    They probably won’t, because cops inevitably turn up when the crims have gone and coast is clear. All they do to the victims of crime is fuck up their lives even more. You can go back to sucking cop dick now.

  • Tom Sullivan

    You vil komply! What a pathetic Nazi POS you are.

  • Tom Sullivan

    Actually, liars and the uniformed would be much closer, although I reckon that these days the two are actually one and the same.

  • DisarmTheMunky

    You’re thinking like cops are TV cops. If you shoot to wound and the guy actually pulls out a gun, you’re dead. The cop can’t take chances like that. Everyone can armchair quarterback all day long, but that was a split second decision where in his head, the cop thought his life or mine. Still tragic.

  • CopsKill

    Well then he might have been lifting his shirt to show the cops he had nothing. To say he was acting like a bad ass in front of his friends is just your assumption. The fact of the matter is he had NO weapon what so ever. The cops had their guns drawn and pointing at him. THEY SAW NO WEAPON but killed him cause he lifted his shirt. They were in the wrong !! Paranoid pigs with itchy trigger fingers and an eagerness to kill. They both should lose their jobs and prosecuted for their thoughtless actions.

    Lifting up your shirt does not justify a death sentence.

    Never trust police.

  • Tat2dWhtTrSH

    This is what I know. I would have NOT gotten shot by that police officer! Do you know why?
    The second that I turned around and took my headphones off and there is a police officer holding his firearm up and pointing it at me…. I wouldn’t have to hear what he was saying because he would hear me!!
    #1) My hands would have immediatly went for the sky!
    #2) At the same moment I’d have been yelling omfg… don’t shoot please I have no weapons. With that I would have already been slowly moving towards the ground also with my hands clearly in view.
    I personally would have done these exact things for one reason. I feared for my own life seeing an officer of the law holding me at gunpoint while issues commands. Simple.
    Shit happens man.
    Let’s not forget that the officer was told by dispatch that there was someone at the location brandishing a firearm.
    All you fuckers that think that job so fucking easy are just those people that are too girlymen to do such a job. Like bitches you bitch.
    Get fucked in the neck chumps. Right in the neck with a fucking power tool! LOL!

    *TaT2dWhtTrSH*

  • DisarmTheMunky

    Just stop…. you fail

  • Aly

    As an EMT I can tell you that the very first rule is to make sure you have a barrier for bodily fluids before you attempt aid. Yeah “you can catch diseases” like HIV, which would completely ruin someone’s life. Now why would you risk HIV for a criminal?

  • Bret Zeller

    Officers aren’t, and shouldn’t be willing to take a bullet to the vest, because it could easily be a bullet to the face. The Officer acted appropriately. The ONLY POSSIBLE WAY to avoid these encounters, is to obey the police immediately.

    If you don’t, then you might just throw your life away. The police did nothing wrong here.

  • Bret Zeller

    Stop making up nonsense. The cops clearly got his attention. He turned and faced them, willfully ignored their orders, reached menacingly into/around his waistband, and was shot. There was no other possible outcome to this, without the police needlessly endangering themselves.

    If you don’t want to get shot, do as your told during these encounters. That’s your responsibility as a citizen. If you don’t like it, sue them later and battle in court. Don’t fight them at the scene.

  • Bret Zeller

    The US has 50% of the world’s firearms. That just won’t work here. In Britain, very few criminals have guns and very few police are shot. The US has problems the EU does not have, due to our demographics and socio-economic situation.

    The police are not wrong for shooting someone who acts aggressively or menacingly. This guy wasn’t shot for “being non-compliant”, he was shot for acting in a way which caused the officer to fear for his safety (by reaching into his waistband while ignoring orders).

  • zeez

    It’s against the law to shoot to wound.

  • Jared Dowland

    I hate to say it, but after watching it three times, it seriously looks like he’s reaching and drawing for a weapon.

  • Brack to the Future

    I do wonder whether this boy was speaking on his cell phone during the confrontation. My neighbor has the same setup on his older Samsung. In that case the “nah, foo'” might’ve been directed elsewhere. Did the Citizen Review Board have access to this kid’s phone?

    With any luck it’s a rainy Saturday and you can take the time to read the Citizen Review Board’s findings. You’ll be shocked to learn some jurisdictions actually allow a “penalty of death” by officer. http://www.scribd.com/doc/253367994/Citizen-Review-Board-report-regarding-fatal-shooting-of-Dillon-Taylor#scribd

  • Some Dude.

    Taylor didn’t respect the police, he saw two drive up, decided not to engage, turned and started to walk away, and when two cops are pointing a gun at you, you do what the fuck they say if you value your life. They said get your hands out of your pants, he said “na fool!” And moved his hands too quickly… what a dumbass! Its not about protecting your rights, its not about protecting your cops, its about having a safe engagement so that both of you can survive…. for all about to comment against me, I’m no police officer, I am no gang member, just your average guy trying to live.

  • Brack to the Future

    All cops are parasites. The host is crime, so cops must have crime to justify their jobs. I’d rather mine shite than suck the blood of criminals. Secondarily, firearm use is immaterial. All over the world, the non-compliant die daily from blows to the head in places that have never seen a body cam.

  • Brack to the Future

    May I see a citation for the “Cops today are being mowed down at an alarming rate” meme? Because to me, if that’s true, then in proportion the police are committing Holocaust all across the US. I mean c’mon. Mowed down?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    these two pigs deserve to have their skin ripped off them with a fork. they should be then set on fire using gasoline and Styrofoam. their family should be staked to the side of their house with rebar to get a strong message that war is coming for these pigs. the only good pig is a dead pig that has been skinned and thrown off an overpass.

  • Kate

    My heart goes out to Dillon, his family, his friends, and even the police officers involved in this horrific incidence. I doubt anyone wants to find themselves in this situation on either side.
    The fact of the matter is, is yes, there are good cops and there are bad cops, just like with any other profession or job. However, these police officers are putting their lives on the line each day as they do their best to protect the innocent. Their job is to protect, which is also their initial instinct as a police officer. If anything or anyone is deemed as a possible threat, their job is to take action. And with this situation, the officer understood that this man was carrying a firearm, so extreme action had to take place. This situation is extremely saddening, for both sides, like I said. And yes, Dillon Taylor did have his earphones in and was listening to music, but he turned around with hands in his pockets, acknowledged the police officer, and failed to put his hands up to show his innocence as he was given more chances to do so.

    What it all comes down to is that although officers don’t always assess situations correctly, they’re goal and instinct is to protect us, and this instance is no different. How can you not appreciate the men who have kept you, your family, friends or community safer?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    only pussies apply to be police that’s why they always fear for their life. the only good pig is a dead pig. hopefully these two pigs will be skinned alive.

  • charlotte

    If he didnt hear them then please tell me why he replied “naw fool” obviously he heard clearly what was being said and kept moving whether their was a gun or not he did not comply. Yea the officer could have just as easily used a stun gun but he did not know if their was a gun which means he was protecting himself and those around who could have possibly been shot had the kid pulled a gun. I dont honestly think this officer was in the wrong. He also applied pressure to wound in an attempt to try to keep the kid alive. Not all cops are “trigger happy”

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    the only good pig is a dead pig. they should all be hunted down and executed, skinned and hung from an overpass. this may send them the message that war is coming, and that the skinning is about to begin.

  • bellinR

    He had to shoot him really? TASER? Even I can see his earbuds in the video.

  • Dale Kreider

    trigger happy cops, again! I don’t have to watch the video to make that statement. If the victim didn’t have any weapon showing, there is no reason to shoot.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    this officer should be staked to a telephone pole with a rebar. he can then be set on fire so that everybody can see what happens to dirty pigs.

  • Josh

    Stan do you think about what you say?…..if not you should start, what classifies a professional when it comes to shooting? Did you know a gunshot on any part of your body could kill you? Did you know in a hostile situation things can switch from bad to death in the matter of a second? Do you believe that a requirement to be an officer is being able to shoot just in the right spot to where that person will just be wounded enough to give up? If so I would say you should become a police officer and put yourself in their shoes and also just try and shoot for that exact spot where said person gives up and lives a happily ever after life..

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    they will stop shooting so fast when their family start being burned alive in retaliation. the only good pig is a dead pig.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    all pigs should be executed on sight. the only good pig is a dead pig that has been skinned, burned, and hung from an overpass.

  • Josh

    Hey since you where their can you go ahead and explain everything about how it went to us who just saw the video?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    “obeying the police immediately” if you want the perfect slave, I’m not sure I have seen one. the only good pig is a dead pig. they should all be filleted with rusty knives.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    pig is best served over the fire.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    if you don’t want to get shot, you hunt these fuckers first. skinning a pig in a tree is no different than any other animal. the only good pig is a dead pig has been skinned alive, burned, then hung off an overpass.

  • richard g

    You’re a fucking idiot. Was the cop supposed to wait and make sure it was a gun before he shot back? That’s not how it works. Get a clue before you run your mouth on the internet next time.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    that is how its supposed to fucking work you moron. the cop is supposed to see a weapon before he pulls the trigger. if you’re too much of a pussy to wait for that to happen, don’t apply for the job.

  • Kate

    This is one of the most disrespectful and heartless statements I’ve heard yet. How could you ever wish this upon anyone, especially those who are out to protect YOU, even hypothetically?

  • ThreeOhThird

    what a way to die. Wow.

  • Matt

    I’m often with the victim on these unarmed police shootings, but the cop who shot totally acted within protocol. Very sad. I wish the kid put his hands up when he was staring at a cop pointing a gun at him.

  • Rich-D

    On such posts police have looked up the IP Address and arrested the person. So, you may have your chance, but I bet the cops win the gunbattle

  • Rich-D

    Did you see him turn around and look at the cop and continue to walk backwards, then lift his shirt. Ear plugs had nothing to do with it, as he obviously saw the cop pointing a gun at him.

  • Rich-D

    Now, your threatening cops families. Your nothing but a blow hard talking tough hiding behind a screen. Your nothing more than a pussy troll.

  • Rich-D

    Europeans are much more civilized and are smart enough to know, when a gun is pointed at them to stop and put their hands up!

  • Chris Trigg

    The people who support the cop shooting an unarmed man . You all make me sick . Cops don’t come close to the top ten most dangerous jobs . The kid had head phones on, cops already had there firearms drawn . So, there is no need to shoot him unless they actually see a gun . We don’t need paranoid cops on the streets if they get scared all the time . And this isn’t the first time a unarmed and innocent civilian gets killed by cops and sadly it won’t be the last .

  • BobTrent

    Not obvious to me. I wouldn’t put my hands up or move at all until the cop, or anyone brandishing a gun at me, tells me to. I don’t have to be told, “FREEZE!!” to freeze. I was shot when I was already moving before the gun was drawn.

  • BobTrent

    Not at all. What caused his demise was bullets entering his body and interrupting his life processes.

  • Howard Y. Jackson Jr.

    Did you hear his brother say, that Dillon was pulling up his pants and pulled up his t shirt to show that he had no weapon. The cops in America are just too damned trigger happy.

  • RM

    So you admit you’re a cop. Thought so. Google “militarization of police US” and see what you get. Doesn’t take a liberal to see the writing on the wall. Does, however, take a degree of intelligence and an interest in social justice for people other than one’s self.

    Of course if you’re a member of the fascist club these things wouldn’t bother you because all the toys are so cool.

  • Tat2dWhtTrSH

    You sir are as wrong as a person can be. First off, most likely the officer didn’t carry a tazor, they’re given a choice between that and mace. Secondly, a GED makes you no lawyer ok the facts are as follows…. No one, including law enforcement are subject to rules about the use of force. One man being approached by another aggressively IS NOT obligated to any certain standard procedure. You, me, law enforcement or anyone else DOES NOT have to wait until they get hit by someone to execute defensive measures and strike first. Trust me, I fucking know, 3 excessive force investigations on myself in this life. All 3 deemed justified. The last dude approached me and puffed up so I smacked the fuck outta him and when the police found him drunk and passed out at his home. They awoke him and took him to the hospital and on the way he made a statement that he remembered that he was going to headbutt me in the face! I learned the next day that I knocked 4 teeth out his face, broken his jaw in 2 places and xrays showed that he had a fractured skull as well. If you know someone is possibly about to hurt you. Hurt them badly!

    It’s alright, hackers are indeed infiltrating networks and defining IP addresses for further or any follow up investigations that may take place.

  • Anthony Dobrowolski

    you can say cops fear for their life of course they do. But our military is in a different country walking the streets at a way higher risk of something bad happening, but you don’t see them walking threw the city shooting everyone because they could have a gun. We have non lethal ways for a reason but they never choose to use them. You should only fire your firearm if you see a weapon. I didn’t see a weapon did you? A simple tazer or spray would of stopped him. Cops need to stop shooting innoncent people wait till it happens to one of your loved ones. I’m sure your views will change

  • Anthony Dobrowolski

    frankly im just tired of the bullshit with cops too, i seem them running red lights, speeding all the fricken time, i actually know someone who got tboned by a drunk cop off the clock. Guess what the cop didn’t get in trouble. They are setting the standard for us and their doing a pretty shitty job. If anything they should face harsher punishment

  • Tat2dWhtTrSH

    No not all. You have no fucking clue who the fuck I even am dipshit. Your statements in general are so fucking ignorant that I decided to piss on your fucking face, that’s all. You go headbutt one of them really big kitchen knives.

    Armchair policing is not helping. If the cop hesitates and the perp has a weapon he’s dead and the bad guy can offend again. Until you are behind the trigger and life on the line you don’t know what you would do. Ohvwait you thought about what to do and you are DEAD.

    It was the cops actions that resulted in the false assumption he was one of three people waving a gun around, they found NO guns. If it was one of your family member, how would you feel? You people are cruel.

  • Tabatha

    So cops can never take chances like that? Every person should just be a shoot to kill because hey!

    you can’t make logical common sense arguments on this site. the trolls are too thick.

  • Tabatha

    Good point, cops SHOULD be taught what vital spots they should and shouldn’t shoot when they’re trying to would a “victim” to the point they fall out but won’t bleed to fucking death.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    it is true that if you don’t want to be shot, play the game. figure out where the officer lives and if he has a family. I find the one of the most memorable events is that of a child’s torture and death. play the game smart and with patience, and you can truly watch that pig slowly die a horrifying death of loss and frustration. killing the pig out right is just too quick, they do not deserve that kind of mercy.

  • Tabatha R

    The law is always fucking right, not the people who are supposed to govern it. He had his hand already in that area, as you must have noticed his pants had been sagging. If you make ONE wrong move, you could be dead because of a stupid cops misjudgement. If I make even one move to itch my eye while having my hands up, I’d bet I’d be dead, because the cop is extremely scared one person is going to kill them and their partner.

    But it’s okay to shoot to kill? Please provide evidence. It’s bulls hit

  • Tabatha R

    This proves EXACTLY why we need to change our law system. Over a few choice of mining less words about pigs that person will be arrested. Please. You’re just advocating the build-up of dislike for the police. Thank you!! :)

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    and still the pigs will do nothing about my statements. partially because they are fully protected by the First Amendment. and second, they know they can’t hold me long enough to keep their family safe.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    it’s funny that people cannot see an opinion for what it is. as vile and as morbid as an opinion may be, it is still protected. it seems that those with higher IQs then pigs or pig lickers can see when it is an opinion quite easily.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    you certainly drank all the slave Kool Aid, didn’t you? you don’t have the backbone to protect this country, get the fuck out.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    obviously your dumbass doesn’t know about the internet meme of “you stupid”. I love people like you, the ones that are so ignorant that they can’t even see that they are the dunce in the class.

  • WaRisComing

    war is coming, I suggest you choose your side. no war has ever been won by the government against its people.

  • Howard Y. Jackson Jr.

    Agreed.

  • Bret Zeller

    I hope you try what you threaten, and I hope you get the same sort of experience as the guy in the video. I’ll be happy to see that video from your future executioner’s body cam.

  • Bret Zeller

    I don’t care what his brother said, we have the video, a first hand source. The fact is he failed to comply with reasonable and lawful orders, and under every possible interpretation of the incident, the fault lies entirely with the deceased.

  • Bret Zeller

    They will do nothing about your comments, because they are protected, and everyone knows you are too cowardly to do anything. Sit there and post on the internet while cowering in fear of your betters in real life. It’s okay, no one will lose any sleep over the bizarre sexual fantasies you are presently engaged in.

  • Bret Zeller

    Yea right. You hold one or the other. They each require two hands. When your house is broken into, do you hold a feather duster in one hand, in case it’s a naughty neighborhood kid, and a baseball bat for a real criminal in the other?

  • Bret Zeller

    If only pussies apply to be police, then what does that say about the gangsters-so called- that are regularly slaughtered by them. America must have some really wussified criminals.

  • Bret Zeller

    Your IQ is too low to do so. Someone fails to follow orders, and reached for their waistband. That’s a no-no. If it comes down to who lives and dies, I choose to live. That’s that. You should plan accordingly.

    In these cases, all people need to do is follow instructions, so that everyone goes home okay. This guy refused vocally to follow orders, and reached for his waistband. It could have been the officer bleeding out just as quickly. The old rule says that you cut the cake, I pick my slice. This guy forced a violent confrontation, therefore the officer chose how to respond, and the officer acted reasonably.

  • Bret Zeller

    It’s not hard. If you force a violent encounter, you’re likely to be killed. If you play nice and civilized, you will live. That should be the lesson of these shootings. Trying to be macho when the police stop you, can cause your death, and we’re not going to punish cops for your stupidity.

  • Bret Zeller

    He absolutely did NOT do what he was told. He reached into waistband, as is seen in the video, and as the officer says to himself while looking at his body. The cop was clearly upset, because the guy forced his hand for no reason at all.

  • Bret Zeller

    Nonsense, you can’t react once their weapon is pulled out. We have rules for these things, and the rules say you follow the officers instructions, or your alone bear the consequences. We can’t have people choosing when to obey laws and not. They need to always comply.

    It’s not about police and the government having power. It’s about ensuring that everyone lives to tomorrow. If you disagree with police, go to court and fight it out there. Not in the streets with guns drawn.

  • Bret Zeller

    Everyone knows the rules. You shove your hand in your pocket or waistband, the cop shoves and bullet through your chest. This guy did not merely reach into his pants, but walked away from the cop and verbally refused to obey. That’s simply a recipe for disaster which would make any reasonable person think he had a weapon and was ready to use it.

    If you choose to make the situation dangerous, you lose. The cop doesn’t have to sacrifice their safety to make it 50/50

  • Bret Zeller

    You apparently didn’t watch the video above, or you didn’t pay attention. He shoves his hands in, he didn’t pull them out.

  • peg

    ~ I worked for over 20 years servicing ATMs… inside and outside of banks and stores.. I had many incidences when I tripped an alarm and came face to face with police officers (guns drawn) … funny, I had tools in my hands that could be construed as weapons… but I never got shot… I never got mistreated… Why… because I did EXACTLY what they instructed… I had every right to be where I was.. I had all my proper identifications… but I followed their instructions and let THEM question me///// then all was fine and happy ending… put your hands up.. walk backwards if that is what they request… let them tell you when to retrieve your ID… What the hell do you think your playing at… they are holding “deadly force” for a reason !!!! You can sort out any mistakes after the officer has the situation in his control to his satisfaction…

  • Bret Zeller

    1. Most police departments now require a bachelor’s degree.
    2. Many cops are ex military.
    3. It’s quite hard to get into most police departments
    4. Doubtful
    5. Dead link, but the story you posted was a pretty specific instance with a single department. Many corporations have similar policies.

    Cops aren’t losers, criminals are. The worst cop, is merely on par with the best criminal, ethically and legally. I tend to notice that most of the police supporters tend to be significantly better educated than the anti-cops. I have 2 bachelor’s degrees, what do your grammatically challenged friends on here have?

  • Bret Zeller

    CPR won’t save someone who is bleeding out with massive abdominal trauma. Also, there is no obligation to save a life unless you are on duty in an official capacity (like ER staff). I’m trained in CPR, First Aid, etc, but I’m only required to do those things at work. On the street, it’s my choice. The Supreme Court has eliminated the required aid laws.

  • Bret Zeller

    Terrorists kill innocent people. Cops kill criminals like the fellow in the video. I’m not at all likely to be shot by police.

  • Jay Starks

    Then they kill you in custody. No wins there

  • Bret Zeller

    Huh? Where are all these cases of non-resisting people, dying in custody? I did a search, and I’m able to find perhaps a couple documented cases ever? And in those cases, the police are charged with murder.

    Even now, with the media trying to prove the point that the police brutalize or kill people in custody; groups like CNN have to pull up 15 years worth of cases, which are around 8 cases, and most of them the coroners and forensics cleared the police. Basically, more people will be killed today by criminals, than have been murdered by police since most of us were born.

  • Bret Zeller

    An opinion is your personal take on a subject without a clear factual answer. Calling for violence is something else.

  • Jammy Jay Jamson

    And you write off a boy’s death as a “tragic accident”? Let’s hope you don’t have a tragic accident and run into a trigger happy policeman as you go about your daily business. How can you sit and watch this and not be disgusted? Even when it’s clear there’s no gun the boy is handcuffed and left to die with his face in his own blood. Imagine a member of your own family in such a degrading last few moments, also imagine their death described as a tragic accident because of an item of clothing gets snagged. Your attitude is repugnant

  • Rich-D

    Advocating hunting down and killing cops and their families is not protected by the 2nd Amendment. The feeble attempt to scare off cops from arresting you by threatening harm to their family is enough for an arrest and prosecution. Thinking you have a system to hide your IP Address is being foolish. You fit all of the qualifications of a Domestic Terrorist. .

    if you haven’t noticed everybody in America is a giant pussy. this is why you have a government that creates war the world over, and a police force that is scared shitless that they shoot small puppies. and yes, gangbangers are giant pussies. after you have killed and skinned a few people, then you can decide whether or not you have the Constitution for that lifestyle. many are too weak to deal with their own conscience after such an event. they are pussies. obviously you are one as well.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    not to worry, war is coming soon. let gutters will be filled with pig blood.

  • Daniel Petersen

    You just justified the death of an American citizen by police forces because the officers life is more important than the civilians…

    In defending this officer who operates under aggressive rules of engagement you have shown yourself to be an enemy of the people… Just STFU already.

  • Daniel Petersen

    If you are doing nothing wrong you have nothing to fear goes both ways you POS enemy of the people…

    If cops weren’t operating under over aggressive rules of engagement where the lives of officers overrides our safety then the civil unrest in our nation would not even be present… History has shown you don’t militarize police because it is not only costly but militarized police alienate the populaces under their care…. This is not chance but only a matter of time. Just like any other profession where workplace injuries and accidents occur management will put measures in place to protect their people…. This mitigation happened to the detriment of the American people. Yeah there might be “Good cops” out there but that is NOT the issue here… I worked as a tree trimmer cutting the trees around powerlines… This job is MUCH more dangerous than being a cop btw… If my bad policies made it so I dropped a tree on 1 in 100 of the houses I worked around do you really think the peoples who houses I just destroyed would say its okay I followed bad policy and destroyed their lives?!?!? Cause I was a good guy?!?!?

    Our police forces here in the United States are predatory revenue generators with a license to kill and a MRAP to cruise around in…. Nothing is ever going to go wrong…
    That is a recipe for disaster and F you for buying into it.
    Our politicians and cops are very much culpable for the unrest we find ourselves in in this country. Defending it blindly does not change this fact.

  • Daniel Petersen

    The protocols of dictatorships were never thought to be changed until the empire crumbles…

  • Daniel Petersen

    “Not all cops are trigger happy….”

    No but EVERY cop operates under overaggressive rules of engagement and militarization which makes “good cops” seem like murderous thugs to the rest of the nation… Because as a whole they are…

    The politicians and supporters like yourselves who support these quantitative instead of qualitative actions against the American people are responsible for the unrest we find our nation in and when the revolution comes it wont be the peoples fault.

  • Matt C.

    You sure it was him that said whatever he said?
    Why did the cop keep raising his voice?
    The guy was wearing earphones which were playing music.
    He had his back to the cop so didn’t even know he was there until he heard the last scream.
    I can’t tell exactly what was said, do you really want me to watch this vid 1000 times just to tell you what really happened?
    I will if you insist.

  • enohp660

    He kept raising his voice because he didn’t comply. I would think that was obvious. So I guess when the cop said show me your hands, it was someone else who said “no, fool”, and the guy who got killed just happened to not show his hands when asked to do so. I’m not going to keep going on with this. How about you do the same thing this idiot did if the cops ever approach you and let’s see how that turns out for you. When a cop yells show me your hands, there’s. 100% chance that he has his gun out.

    YOU’RE. If you can’t handle grade school grammar YOU’RE in no position to play lawyer-not that you’ve been doing that adequately. You lack the mental power to understand what YOU’RE trying to argue.

    When typing on a phone and or dealing with a troll my grammar is the least of my worries. But as is often seen when a troll is losing they go immediately to being a Dr of english writing.

    Stay Troll pony boy.

    I apologize (not really, up yours) if when i type on a phone or tablet if i dont go through the problems of fixing every error. BUT I love how a troll suddenly and always gets a PHD in writing when it come to someones elses grammar.
    “Im so highbrow to prove my point I will point out an error in an argument I clearly dont have a chance in. Troll win”
    But to point out an error of yours if you want to be Grammar nazi correct. The use of slang such as “pussy” makes your arguments seem pre-k at best, and in any thesis or paper submitted to any organization of repute would smack said word down as “lowbrow”. I suggest a thesarus to expand your vocab.
    Stay Troll pony boy!

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    actually, advocating their hunting down and killing is perfectly protected by the 2nd amendment. threatening to do it myself or have any part of it is illegal. this is why I have never made a threat. people like you are just too stupid to understand what an opinion is. as far as domestic threats are concerned, you are the only threat here and your kind will be dealt with. the only good pig is a dead pig that has been hung off an overpass with his own entrails.

    Motherfucking cruz is a cold blooded killer! “I feared for my life bullshit defense” but if it where you & me.we would of been charge with first degree murder,by this same socialpathic d.a.

  • johnjohn67

    Ay asshole,if you had a conceal carry & you shot dillion the same way cruz did,that d.a. would of charge you with first degree murder! “No,i fear for my life defense” for you..Cruz should be charge with murder! Period!.no weapon was found & he “did not fear for his life” like he said he did(you hear no flight or fight emotions after the shooting, or immediate remorse or any emotion a HUMAN BEING HAS if one takes a life,kills a human,no emotions at all from cruz..NONE!! As a matter of FACT, he acts non-chalantly afterwards..He is a socialpathic cold blooded murderer),that is one of the oldest tricks in the book : The ” I fear for my life” routine for murderous cops to use; it’s a ruse..So if we don’t comply for some REASONS unknown to you,us,the officer,it’s a automatic death sentence!?(what if my wife was in labor,and i was driving through red lights with my hazards on & a cop told me to pull over & i didn’t because all i’m thinking is to get my wife to the hospital,it’s okay for the cop to shoot to kill at us in the car!! At me & my pregnant wife?!!.because i didn’t comply to his/her commands?! Btw this senario plays out everyday in America(with out the cops shootin at the car obviously,most use COMMON SENSE!)..so fuck you asshat!.what if cruz told you to get on your knees,ready to please..i bet you will comply. Fucking shit for brains. A man is dead! Dead! .no more life him, no more laughing,crying,eating,drinking,having kids of his own…the joys of life. But yet you still get to fart,asshole. Hope karma don’t bite you in the ass.because some day maybe YOU will be in the wrong place in the wrong time,hope that never happens to you,you jerk off!

    shoot them in the legs or something…

  • Wolfgang_sonny

    Only when your not prepared

  • Rich-D

    Actually, both officers fired at the exact same same moment, for the same reason. Which is why you only hear one gun shot in the video. The man was hit in the stomach and chest. Both officers were exonerated as Dillon refused to comply, even when facing an officer with the officers gun pointed at him. Dillion was walking backwards looking at the officer and went under his shirt when both officers fired. Dillon had a Warrant for his arrest that would have returned him to prison. On his Facebook page which has been deleted Dillon stated he would rather die than return to prison. The death may have been tragic, however Dillon brought it upon himself.

  • Ixoziel

    Sometimes, the cop-bashing is deserved. Police brutality has gotten out of hand, but this was NOT a case of police brutality.

    There was no firearm, but he ACTED like he was about to draw a weapon. If you go into a bank, and tell them you have planted bombs, and you want them to open up the safe, what do you think is going to happen? Are they going to laugh and let you go because there were no bombs? No, because the threat was there. This cop came here because of a 911 call that said a guy was waving a gun around. This man met the description. This guy flat out REFUSED to comply with the officer’s orders. He had his hands in his pants and he lifted up the middle of his shirt. What does that usually mean? That he’s pulling something out.

    Notice Dillon’s post on social media that says he “would rather die” than serve time in jail. Note his outstanding felony warrant.

    Did he do anything to deserve being shot? No, and it’s horrible that it happened. But it’s VERY easy to understand how the officer viewed the situation.

    Saying “they should shoot his arm / hand / shoulder” is ridiculous. The police aim for the center because that’s the easiest place to hit. What if he had tried to pull off something like that, and missed and hit a bystander? What if he just clipped the guy, and then the guy pulled out a gun and shot him? That is why the protocol is to aim for the center. A gun is only shot in the first place if lethal force is deemed necessary.

  • Ixoziel

    What a horrible comparison. He was called to the scene and told that three guys, one which matched this guy’s description, were waving a gun around. He wasn’t just “walking down the street” and randomly decided to draw his gun on this guy. Do you think the vest protects his head? Protects the major veins and arteries in his arms and legs? A shot there can easily cause massive blood loss that will lead to his death.

    If you don’t shoot until you SEE a weapon, then it might be too late. Even if you fire before the person you’re going to hit, they can still get shots off. Why should you have to take that risk? It’s much safer if the person complies, then there is NO risk to anyone involved. This guy chose not to comply.

  • Ixoziel

    This is the stupidest thing I’ve read today. “Therefore he wouldn’t have heard them…” That’s why he said “Nah, fool” right? Because he didn’t hear them? Please try to use some of that grey matter if there is any left.

  • darren

    You mean ‘due to’ not ‘do to’ brainiac….. and this kid did not have photos of himself on instagram like thug Michael Brown posing with guns. And he did not stiff arm a clerk while stealing cigars like Brown and did not assault an officer like Brown. It was obvious he had headphones on and his pants were dragging and he was pulling them up. A blind person could have seen if he had a gun in his waistband. There was no justification in the shooting. But you will defend black thugs for two reasons- a) you are black and an idiot and b) if you are white and shot by an officer you probably deserve it…

  • Cole

    Anyone who thinks police should be taught to aim at a specific body part of a suspect in order to harm and stop but not kill obviously has little experience in shooting as well as operating in a high stress environment like this. The man obviously turned around and faced the officer and was given ample time to put his hands up. Noone cares if his pants were falling down, any normal person would ignore their pants and do as they are told especially when faced with an officer with his gun drawn. It’s not the police who are the issue it’s the dumb ass ignorant people who think they can do as they wish instead of as they are told by law enforcement. If this young man would have simply complied with the officers they would have likely had a short conversation about the 20 year Olds open warrants likely taken him to jail and he would be alive and well. He made the decision too disobey orders given to him by a police officer and unfortunly paid the price. It’s easy to critique the actions of the officer while sitting at your computer or watching the video on your phone but he had to make a real life or death decision based on the information he was given as well as what he saw in front of him. Every officer puts their life on the line everyday to protect those of us who comply with the law and it’s about time we start thanking them for what they do instead of fighting back.

  • Quantez Williams

    I could not finish that video. damn.

  • Cole

    There’s a simple difference between you and an officer. The officer is wearing a uniform and badge which means when they tell you to do something you do it which is common sense for any normal functuoning person. They are placed in a position of authoroty and forced to deal with hostile situations daily, officers deserve to go home to their families juat like all of us. The other 2 men complied with officers requests and walked away fine. It’s sad to see anyone lose their life but his actions are to blame.

  • Leander

    Typical Americans. No sense of accountability. I was in a situation about 10 years ago where a guy pulled a shotgun on me. I took it and in the process, the gun discharged striking me in the toes. The guy bolted into his house and locked the door. In an adrenaline fueled state, I was yelling at the door while holding my newly captured 12 gauge. I am deaf from the shot but not realizing it. As I look to my right, I see about 3 squad cars and 4 or 5 officers with their guys drawn. I start pointing them towards where the guy ran to. I looked back at them and realized that they were pointing their guns at me. Confused but quick thinking, I realized that they have no idea what they have just driven into and I was holding a gun. I couldn’t hear their orders because i was still partially deaf and hyped up. I tossed the gun, put my hands in the air, turned away from them and dropped to my knees with my hands in on my head. I wasn’t abused in any manner what so ever. As a matter of fact the officers were very pleasant and professional. I can only assume that they were happy that they survived another cal and didn’t have to kill anyone. This guy with his F/U attitude is the whole reason that he is dead. Teach your children to respect authority. You don’t have to like it but there is a way to fight it and it is not on the street while the gun is pointed at you. Lets all learn a little accountability.

    He had a head set on! & the officer did not arrest him, he KILLED HIM! so your telling me if you don’t comply to an officer orders it’s instant death now?! Wow!.. you are fucking insane. That officer shot a UNARMED man. That fucking officer works for us taxpayers, I highly doubt in their training manuals at the police academy it says to kill on the spot any individual who doesn’t comply to an officer’s command. There could be extenuating circumstances that somone might not comply..example for you & the other simpletons out there: This happened in Virginia; a man was driving his car then suddenly hit the jeep in front of him, then went into the other lane, then crashed in the center divider.Officers came & ordered him out, spraying almost a full can of mace in his face, then proceeded to drag him out, force him to the ground with batons, but all the while the man was having a major stroke that caused him to crash & caused him not to comply with the officer’s command because he couldn’t move! Or when I and many men through out this country take our wives to the hospital because they are in labor, I went through red lights with my hazards on, then I was being followed by a police car with his lights and sirens on, I did not comply of him ordering me to pull over.Instead I was just thinking to get my wife to the hospital as fast as I can(my mind was racing,it’s a normal responce considering the circumstances)without hurting no one. This scenario plays out hundreds a time a day throughout America, should everyone of us get shot through the car to kill us?! And possibly the person in labor?! I think not!..So use common fucking sense, people like you condone police to be judge, jury, executioner..should go through some Karma, then see how it feels to get shot & possibly killed off the bat because you didn’t comply to officers orders(but you might have a reason or extenuating circumstances, like heart attack, stroke, or seizures..etc. etc.) Again I say this officer got away with MURDER! He could of handle it differently..like mace, stun gun, baton, knocking subject to ground(he had back up right there, btw the other officer did not shoot, he had common fucking sense not to, because it’s the wrong thing to do)..Use COMMON FUCKING SENSE.!

  • jb226

    I am NOT defending the officers’ use of deadly force or the lack of charges against him, but I do feel required to post an unequivocal NO to the idea of “shooting to wound.” That’s movie nonsense. In real life, you shoot center mass or you don’t shoot at all.

  • asimpleretard

    Below you will see a large amount of “experts” talking about what should have been done and how they would have done it. Have fun reading it.

    Comply with police officers. It’s really not hard to take a minute out of your day and then leave. I guess people would rather fight instead. Police are being fired for minor incidents against those who resist arrest now. Soon there will be nobody sane who wants to be a police officer. Then it will get fun for you all.

    Remember Freddie Grey? Of course you do. The place he died was a major drug area. The same place that after the incident police activity went down and over 40 murders happened in less than two months and not just criminals. Women and children too since you’ll likely care about that more. Those murders are half of the whole yearly average happening in less than two months due to less policing. Feel safe yet?

  • asimpleretard

    When asked to put your hands up, do it. Don’t keep them in your waist and then move them around more. It’s quite simple really. Not for some though.

  • mofo

    thats the result of awrong law, because police has to much power to act like that and that need to change.Away with teasers and the right by law to act like this cop! They only hurt,torture,molesting or even kill peoples for no fucking reason! Are you folks feel save and free in a country like the USA? I am a european ciizen and we dont have problems like that.Not in the streetsand also not in our prisons! The USA turns since 9/11 into a fachisme police state…

  • l25

    nobody has to kill a human for his wrong behavior you fucking asshole! I hope you die by a police bullet for no reason!

  • BHammer

    Such a disturbing video to watch. I can see the cop saying he “could’ve been” reaching for a gun. Cops these days are just too damn trigger happy. It’s almost like a badge of honor to be involved in a shooting. If you can even call this that. To me it looks like murder under the color of law. Then after he obviously delivered a fatal gunshot the cop stands over him and cuffs his lifeless body while blood pours out of his chest. Disgusting, absolutely disgusting. Like a predator guarding his kill. To only render first aid several minutes after cuffing the poor kid is just awful. Why do cops need to immediately shoot??? I mean wait as long as you possibly can before shooting! Just sad to watch a young man, troubled or not, bleed his life away in a 7-11 gutter. This cop shouldve had some consequences for this. Bad shoot in my opinion and bad DA for backing the cop up. This could’ve been handled so many different ways. Instead he gets a pat on the back from his buddies in the station while he tries to convince himself his life was really in danger. I hope Bron is haunted by the sight of that poor kid bleeding to death in the gutter for the rest of his life.

  • Rob Nemere

    The kid was drunk and also had warrants, not exactly Mr. Innocent but these cops are retards

  • Rob Nemere

    You are smart and observant the 1% who control everything and the other 20% who lick their rear ends dont need to worry about these issues I cared at one time until I realised there is no changing the status quo now I just post comments

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    Arrested for using your first amendment right? Try harder next time you make random crap out to get after someone.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    Because a tazer isnt a real thing right? You know why they don’t shoot to disable rather than kill? A dead man can’t sue when they find out he was unarmed. You can also find cases when people complied and were still beat. I wish I could live in your happy rainbow land, but I’m not blind, so, alas, I live in reality.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    explain how there are more cop killings per captia than any other country? They have bad guys with guns too. Shot first ask questions later isn’t the right way. I support cops pulling a gun on people not complying if it’s assumed they may have a weapon. But if your gun is already aimed at someone, you can wait till you see if they are armed or not. Pulling the trigger is faster than them revealing their weapon, aiming, and shooting.

  • DisarmTheMunky

    America is full of police shootings because everyone is armed. Other countries aren’t like that. America wants their second ammendmet. As for waiting to see if there is a weapon, the male acted as if he had one and everyone sees the incident through their own eyes. You are right that pulling the trigger is faster than them revealing their weapon, aiming, and shooting, but it can take one bullet to kill or 5-6 (or more). People are so quick to act like they would have simply done it all with no one getting hurt. It’s not a simply black and white solution.

  • Bret Zeller

    That’s the fear. He put his hands in his pocket, and then tried to pull them out. That’s what you do when you have a gun. He shouldn’t have done that.

  • Bret Zeller

    I don’t care about the lives of people who refuse to remotely honor the rules of being in our civilization. The police walk up to you, you play nicely. Not because they are oppressive, but because it keeps EVERYONE safe. If you put an officer’s life in danger, they aren’t required to let themselves be shot or otherwise hurt.

    You’re the POS for backing the people who create these problems. You aren’t entitled in any way to screw around when there is a tense situation. These guys like the POS in the video deserve what they get for creating these situations.

  • Bret Zeller

    Those of us who aren’t retarded will be on their side. You can stand in front of a firing squad if you want.

  • Bret Zeller

    And yet, our pussy soldiers and police regularly destroy the most powerful enemy factions on the planet, from billionaire drug cartels to Islamic forces which are much more violent than us. You may think engaging in torture and genocide makes you tough, but those people are just cowards fighting us. We kill them all, and they always lose.

    We’ve killed 10,000 ISIS personnel in 18 months, they’ve killed… zero-ish American personnel…

  • WD!

    They told him to…

  • Reinmakr

    Due to, not do to. In fact, your whole response stinks of poor grammar. You’re clearly not as educated as you pretend to be. Stop the facade, step away from the keyboard and head back to junior high. Start there, work your way up. Get yourself an undergraduate degree, perhaps even an MBA or Masters and then come back here and post. Due to your lack of education, you’ve been banned.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    you can choose whatever side you want to stand on, I’ll choose the winning side thank you. every time in history Americans have stood up to their oppressors, they have won. Americans are not afraid to kill their own, so choose your side wisely.

  • Tarfiel Archelone

    You would bring a Tazer to a gunfight?

  • Tarfiel Archelone
  • Tarfiel Archelone

    He was was with three other people. He decided to “leave” when the cops arrived, he could clearly hear them as he said Nah Fool and you don’t need to tuck your hands inside you waist band to pull them up you also don’t need to lift your shirt.

  • Bret Zeller

    The winning side? The new confederates, maybe… Another Whiskey Rebellion perhaps….

    The problem is you aren’t on the right side. You believe that the government should leave people alone when they are committing crimes, or should take unnecessary risks because people want to screw around instead of just being arrested or cooperating.

    The fact is that in what is effectively 100% of cases; Those killed would still be alive had they not violently resisted the police, or refused to obey orders or engage in behaviors that are consistent with being compliant with lawful orders.

    If people were being killed on the street for no reason, just being gunned down, people might agree with you guys. As it is, juries refuse to convict these police precisely because the people hurt or killed have actually given massive provocation, and forced the officer’s hand.

    Simply put, our society believes at a foundational level that the street is not the place to settle disputes. If you disagree with an officer, by all means challenge them in court. Don’t try to fight your way out of arrest.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    They bring many tools to fights. They bring guns to arguments… so…

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    People are armed in other countries too.

  • DisarmTheMunky

    True, but not like the good ol US of A.

  • Janet Martin

    First of all if I just walked out of a store with earphones on and I knew I had not done anything wrong and a cop ran up on me screaming “hands up now”…It would take me a minute for it to register too, this cop gave him no time for it to sink in he saw him holding his pants up even as he was walking away because he wad sagging and then acts like he was reaching for something….no pulse and not breathing and he still handcuffs him! Sickening and I can’t believe it was justified!

  • Janet Martin

    See how fast could or would you react when they pop up behind you and scream “hands up” when you know you have done nothing wrong! And don’t forget you have earphones in!

  • BobTrent

    Why then are so many unarmed people shot dead by cops?

  • DisarmTheMunky

    My point is that cops deal with so many people who are armed that they become conditioned to a point that they have to think that everyone might be armed.

  • Roseann Cobb

    Did this guy break into a house or break a law at all, NO so your reply makes absolutely no sense. Cops shouldn’t be able to kill anyone they want for any reason they come up with get a grip. Plus I couldn’t be a cop I have to high of an IQ to qualify.

  • enohp660

    People with high IQ’s don’t go around saying they have high IQ’s. Secondly, people with high IQ’s know how to properly structure a sentence. You have a comma where there should be a question mark and you have a run on sentence. High IQ? Go try to sell that dumb shit elsewhere you dunce. ????? lol lol lol ?????? stupid ass. What school did you go to you fuckin dumb ass? Enjoy your 3 minimum wage jobs. Ha ha!!! Ha ha!!! Ha ha!!!

  • Roseann Cobb

    HiNope I just don’t care about sentence structure when using my phone to reply to ignorant people. But good job on resorting to name calling instead of admitting that this guy died for committing no crime at all. Also a lot of people with high IQ’s go around saying they have one. Me stating my IQ is too high to be a cop is just me stating a fact sorry you get butt hurt by facts.

  • enohp660

    You just sound really stupid. So when those brothers set off those bombs in Boston, should we have waited until the bombs went off to arrest them? The officer was dispatched to the scene because there was a call of someone WAVING A FUCKING GUN. This fucking idiot turned and walked away because he knew the officer was there for him. He refused to show his hands but not only that, he put both of his hands in his waistband which is where most people tend to carry guns that they aren’t supposed to have. You’re the kind of stupid ass who would get shot because you want to wait until the very last minute just to make sure that the person acting like they have a gun does really have a gun. Do me a favor; the next time you hear someone breaking into your house, don’t react until they are fully inside your house just to be sure that they are actually breaking in. You never know. They could be the locksmith or maybe they just confused your house with their own. And stop trying to act like you’re smart. You can’t write properly. People who can, take pride in that and always do their best. You did your best and it sucked. In addition, here in New York, people stopped saying butt hurt 5 years ago.

  • enohp660

    Are you a cop? There is not, nor was there ever anything called shoot to wound. It’s called shoot to stop. That is taught to all officers. I’ve seen people shot in the leg walk 12 blocks to the hospital so you don’t think that if Dillon had a gun that he wouldn’t be able to use it if he were just “wounded”?

  • enohp660

    As I said above, if Dillon had a gun, how do you know that a shot to the shoulder would have stopped him from shooting at the officer? If you have ever been to a range, you practice shooting to the area of the body with the greatest mass, meaning the torso. If you start trying to aim for shoulders and legs and feet, you put other innocent people in jeopardy.

  • enohp660

    you couldn’t be more wrong.

  • enohp660

    Maybe because as an officer, your job is to keep other people safe. If you can read, you should read this article again. The officer was dispatched to the scene because there was a call of someone waving a gun. So if Dillon did have a gun and the officer just let him walk away, your bitch ass would be crying about that if someone you loved got killed by Dillon.

  • enohp660

    Thank you. I’ve been saying that to the idiots on here for weeks.

  • enohp660

    oh his brother said so? Well that settles it all then. Damn the video and my lying eyes!

  • enohp660

    so why did he reply “no fool” to the officer if he didn’t hear him? Just a coincidence? He heard the officer just fine and he wanted to play tough.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    I mean, you can SAY that I’m wrong, but that doesn’t actually mean anything. I could just say you’re wrong in saying I’m wrong…. now what happens?

  • Howard Y. Jackson Jr.

    None of you care until it happens to your own family member, and then you sing a different tune.

  • Bret Zeller

    It never happens to us, because we aren’t criminals.

  • Tarfiel Archelone

    So clarification. Your wife tells you that there is someone downstairs with a gun and you have to go downstairs. Do you go down with Tazer drawn or gun drawn?

  • Howard Y. Jackson Jr.

    Are you a bigot?

  • Bret Zeller

    Are you? Bigotry is strictly defined as intolerance toward someone based on their point of view or opinion.

    I happen to believe the problem is not with the police/security etc, but with the people they encounter. Normal people don’t get shot by the police, criminals do. African Americans have a massively higher rate of being shot by the police, which goes hand in hand with their massively higher rates of criminal convictions and acts.

    Simply put, there is no lottery. People get killed because they refuse to do as they are lawfully ordered to do, and because they engage in crime and violence. Someone in my family who did something similar would not have my support if they got hurt or killed doing something so foolish. People need to learn to accept responsibility for their actions, and stand up for truth over their friends and family. The cop in this video defended himself, period. Those who are attacking him lack the maturity and strength of character to stand up for what is right.

  • Keni Kash

    Suck a dick with shit on it bitch nicca… They didn’t find a gun and even if he had one you don’t just kill no body… You seen the video hoe nobody was in danger he didn’t up no gun dummie you talking real reckless thru a message coward

  • enohp660

    Is English your first language? ????????????

  • Rob Cooper

    You are out of your mind.

  • Bret Zeller

    Nonsense. You guys who delude police and governmental conspiracies everywhere are out of your minds. By challenging the police when they’re right, you damage any type of action to hold them accountable when they are wrong.

    Tl;dr: I help justice, you guys hurt it.

  • RamsesTemur

    Until poor whites stop selling out Black, Brown, Arab and other oppressed people in their ridiculous effort to associate with their rich, ruling class, Caucasian brethren this will continue to happen. The white elites are the Satan that the Bible and Qur’an speaks of (not some red skinned, horny head, pointy tailed, pitch fork carrying subterranean goat man that the preachers and imams teach us of). The police are their demonic servants (some wittingly, some unwittingly).

  • RamsesTemur

    Police and criminals are the same thing.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    That’s not the same. They would be in my home, invading my area.

  • Wayon C Collins III

    Whats with cop trainging nowadays, could it be that officers are taken directly from the military now and have no connection with the community? I remember when police officers had to live within that community, and they knew the people who lived there. Now officers are cold and militaristic. In the last 10 years it seems America has become so different. And those who defend the police mean well i know but..no weapon is no weapon, they have tasers for a reason.

  • Tarfiel Archelone

    How is that not the same you’re given the same amount of information the cop was?

  • Lowne Wolfe

    Guess you didn’t see where the cop said to pull his hands out and the INSTANT he did he was immediately shot?

  • Lowne Wolfe

    actually it was the cops, they fired without justification. Justification would be the presence of a weapon, pulling your hands out of your pockets isn’t justification for death

  • Lowne Wolfe

    they fired without justification. Justification would be the presence of a weapon. Pulling your hands out of your pockets isn’t justification for death, ONLY the clear and present evidence of a lethal weapon is justification for shooting someone to death like this. Any cop shooting and killing an unarmed person should be fired and never allowed to carry a weapon ever again because they are incapable of determining a legit threat.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    how about shooting only when it’s clear your life is in danger…as in SEEING a weapon

  • Lowne Wolfe

    you must have watched a different vid because the brothers statements match what happened in the vid. The ONLY way a cop can justify shooting someone is if they SEE a weapon. FACT IS he DID obey the cop, he was shot the instant he pulled his hands out

  • Lowne Wolfe

    neither was the guy who is now dead, he didn’t do anything wrong

  • Lowne Wolfe

    the video actually supports the brothers statement

  • Lowne Wolfe

    his hands were in his pockets BEFORE the order, it was when he pulled them out, as the cop demanded, that he was shot dead

  • Bret Zeller

    He did not obey. He put his hands in his pocket during the video, and they don’t need to see a weapon. That’s preposterous and not the law.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    He put his hands in his pockets while walking away and not even looking at the cops, seems he had earphones in, and he was shot when he did what the cop said, pulling his hands out. I never said it was the law, I said the only justification for shooting someone is if you see a weapon. The law does actually state that I, a mere citizen, can’t just shoot someone I THINK is armed, especially if they are walking away from me. I can’t use lethal force unless I KNOW they are armed….now that actually IS the law. The law is different for cops, it shouldn’t be.

  • Bret Zeller

    So they shot that guy in New York who was trying to run away. They knew he was an unarmed escaped prisoner. Clearly they were allowed to.

    People need to obey the police, for everyone’s safety. The police issued this guy instructions, and he audibly refused. No sudden movements is common sense. He should not have hidden his hands at any point, and should not have tried to move away.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    you honestly believe running away from a cop warrants death? No sir.

  • Bret Zeller

    It can, legally and ethically. Someone who is too dangerous to be on the streets (hence the arrest), needs to be captured. If they are unwilling to be arrested, the officer must determine their threat level. If an officer believes they pose a serious danger to the officer, or the public at large, they can be shot.

    Literally, “The fleeing felon rule”. Dangerous felons can be shot rather than allowed to escape. Society offers the criminal a fair trial. If the prisoner fleesflees, he forfeits this, and society (via the officer), must decide how to react. We may allow escape for petty and nonviolent offenses, but serious crimes require serious action. If a murderer or kidnapper or robber escape, there is every right to shoot them in the back.

    Additionally, if someone escapes from jail after the first day of the trial, the court continues and can try them in absentia. This is because they have been offered a fair trial, and declined to attend.

    You see, with great rights, come great responsibilities. If you fail in your responsibilities, you may forfeit your rights.

    I also take issue with the way you guys describe this. Police aren’t shooting people for insulting or offending them. They aren’t shooting because “they” have been defied. They are shooting because these people are dangerous, and the law itself has been defied. We allow everyone their day in court. But they MUST go to court to get it. They must also cooperate with police, according to the relevant laws.

  • Bret Zeller

    He yelled at the officer, when he verbally refused to obey his lawful order. There’s no question he knew what was going on.

    Additionally, seeing a weapon is unnecessary for police or civilians. It merely makes it easier. If someone walks up to me and knocks me to the ground, I can shoot them then, if they don’t cease attacking me upon my order. I need only fear serious injury if they aren’t stopped.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    Because someone in your home, is intruding. They are there without your permission, and therefore can be safely and accurately be assumed malicious. You can’t do that to anyone on the street that you come by as a cop on duty.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I’m scared of you? Haha, your delusions grow weekly. Whatever helps you sleep at night.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Your very perceptive. Do you think society would function better if my opinions were adhered to? Do you think progress would come out of chaos? I think those that are smart enough to do more than breathe, know that answer.

  • Grumpy

    Your very perceptive.
    Thank you, but it’s “you’re”

    Do you think society would function better if my opinions were adhered to?
    If you mean pigs are skinned and burned then no: looking at history, it seems all the cultures that used torture as a means of execution either reformed or collapsed.

    Some cultures hold the State has no right to take a life, ever. Others hold that it does but executions should be merciful. The third category – the one you advocate – is the use of gruesome and sadistic torture as society’s revenge, and that’s never proven effective in the long run.

  • William Karras

    POLICE OFFICERS LIKE YOURSELF SHOULD NOT BE MAKING COMMENTS LIKE THIS. IT ONLY SHOWS HOW MUCH OF A COWARD YOU ARE AND HOW MUCH SPECIAL PRILILEDGE YOU THINK YOU SHOULD HAVE.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    correcting somebody’s spelling in the time when we use voice to text is really pathetic. Do I really advocate it? Do you think progress would come out of chaos? or do you think my tone is filled with sarcasm? maybe you need to look a little deeper at the question, or at the chaotic response I gave. only stupid people believe what they read on the internet, only stupid people allow themselves to be puppets to those that can readily stir thier emotions. next time don’t tell yourself to be a puppet.

  • Grumpy

    “stupid people allow themselves to be puppets to those that can readily stir thier emotions”
    Since you’re the one all riled up I guess we can assume you’re stupid?

    And you need new voice-to-text software: “thier”

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    I don’t check the text for consistency. and again you fail to see my point. I have no emotion about this whatsoever, I don’t care about cops or criminals. but the responses to my comments tickle me.

  • Grumpy

    Oh, bull. Voice-to-text could have done “your” instead of “you’re” but it would not have done “thier”, which leads me to conclude you aren’t using VTT. I wouldn’t care except for your “pathetic” comment.

    “I have no emotion about this whatsoever, I don’t care about cops or criminals”
    DeadPigGoodPig is a rather odd handle then, huh?

    “again you fail to see my point”
    Then try articulating your point: do you mean burn it all down and start over?

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    its voice to text, that shows your limited knowledge. but you can go ahead thinking you know everything. it’s what your type does.

  • DeadPigGoodPig

    Actually it will do their and there. And it does get confused.

    I’m here to troll police apologists, hence my handle.

    the point you’re failing to see it’s that I don’t care if somebody skins a pig in the street. or if somebody skins a child in the street. the point you’re failing to see, I’m only here to troll. You continued to respond to a troll so you got trolled.

  • Grumpy

    I don’t doubt that “it will do their and there”, but it sure as hell wouldn’t do “thier”

    So, you run around the net with what you think is a badass handle making sociopathic and violently anarchistic posts in an attempt to start a fight with pretty much anyone (you don’t need to be a “police apologist” to object to “skinned and burned”)?

    If that’s true (which I doubt) then you’re not a troll: you’re ass.

  • Rob

    COPS R ALWAYS DOING THE WRONG THING!!! they think they’re above the law… Not there to uphold the law. Killing a man who you think might have a guy??? WTF IS WRONG WITH OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM??? I feel for the family. I pray they get justice. RIP Dillon… Sorry you were walking around that day at the WRONG DAMN TIME!!!

  • Tarfiel Archelone

    No but you can when have reasonable suspicion. In the Dillon case he did.

  • unkown

    Just a few comments, When disarming an armed suspect, no matter in self defense or not, a cop does not take two shots at the perps chest. Furthermore, ANY public servant including police officers are at least trained in basic EMT skills, and should be providing life saving medical attention ASAP, not taking a few minutes to speak with your partner about if he was recording this or not, then searching him, and radioing about the other 3 suspects in custody.

  • Rich-D

    You watched too many Long Ranger movies. There is no such thing as shot to wound in police work. Either you shot to totally naturalize the threat ( Chest cavity shots) or you don’t shoot!

  • Rich-D

    There is no police agency in the nation that teaches to shot to wound. Either you perceive a deadly threat and shot to naturalize ( chest cavity shot) or you don’t shoot.

  • CharlieAdamsInKY

    *sigh* And again, the badge-licking cop-suckers flood the comments page.

  • Patrick M. Quinn

    Police are trained that if you have to pull your weapon, you shoot to kill, not wound. A wounded person can still kill you. That being said, I personally believe that they could have taken him into custody being so close, without using their guns. Taze him for noncompliance, baton, whatever. Shooting was overkill.

  • tamooj

    When your ‘thoughts’ are a call to violence, you do not have any first amendment protections. Also, you become part of the problem.

  • tamooj

    Shooting to disable is ignorant, and can’t be realistically done in a tactical environment. Your ignorance on this could be fixed with a simple google search. As for starting with non-lethal options first (taser, etc.) I 100% agree.

  • tamooj

    It’s not the same. False comparison

  • John Lucas

    This is all it takes to get shot by police in America now.

  • John Lucas

    At first hes walking forward away from Police Officers, and appears to grab his pants to pull them up and continues to hold them up and does not let them go until just before he is shot where you see his shirt goes up. Immediately when his shirt is raised and skin is revealed shots fired. I understand all the rhetoric which are true question and concerns and why this and why that. My concern is what is the clear or reasonable perceived danger before the shots are fired?
    I also saw in the picture what looked like headphone wires that may have been in use by dillan questioning weather he was aware of the situation he was in until he turns around?

  • Anon

    Lol those cops didn’t even have a good reason to be following that kid in the first place.

  • Vee

    Also, he walked away because he had warrants and didn’t want to get arrested. He shouldn’t have walked away so quickly and he would still be alive. They would have searched them all, found no weapons, and arrested him for his warrants. Instead, he tried to get out of there, so the officer followed him, and he didn’t listen to the officers orders. He knew that cop was right behind him.

  • Vee

    He was leaving after seeing the cop pull up to them, because he had a warrant. None of these people are law abiding citizens. They are criminals. This guy was, Michael Brown was, the guy in New York who was resisting arrest and got choked.. All criminals who didn’t comply with lawful police orders

  • Vee

    He saw the cop car and walked away because he had warrants. He knew the officer was behind him, and didn’t listen to him when he was ordered to stop and put up his hands. Had he suck around with his brother and cousin, h would only have been arrested for the warrant from probation violation and would still be alive

    There are WAY TOO many of you who think fleeing from the police justifies being shot by them…I don’t understand your thinking.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    leaving the scene, guilty or not, warrants or not, does not justify being shot…it never has and it never will. Sadly police disagree and judges do to.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    no sir, no it most certainly does not. I do not understand how you possibly can believe that. I don’t care what the “law allows”, it’s wrong, and it’s murder.

  • Lowne Wolfe

    where was the gun again? I watched the video several times…I keep missing it.

  • Bret Zeller

    The difference between the law and personal ethics, is that the law is a requirement and is not voluntary, but a personal ethic is also known as a “personal preference”. If you don’t wish to shoot escaping felons, that’s your right. You have no authority to stand in judgement of others for having a different lawful preference. ” Murder” is a meaningless word.

  • yellowroz

    ‘Under U.S. law the fleeing felon rule was limited in 1985 to non-lethal force in most cases by Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1. The justices held that deadly force “may not be used unless necessary to prevent the escape and the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious bodily harm to the officer or others.”[2]

    ‘A police officer may not seize an unarmed, nondangerous suspect by shooting him dead…however…Where the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a threat of serious physical harm, either to the officer or to others, it is not constitutionally unreasonable to prevent escape by using deadly force.’

  • Bret Zeller

    I’m aware of that case, which is why I said “dangerous felons”. In the Garner case, the police shot an unarmed teenage burglar. Burglars are not necessarily violent, they are just glorified trespasser’s. Robbers, muggers, rapists, suspected murderers, escaped prisoners, etc, are all subject to being shot. Someone who violently reists the police can be shot.

    The police used to be able to shoot shoplifters, but those days are over, unless the shoplifter gets violent.

  • Tarfiel Archelone

    How exactly is it a false comparison? Both him and the cop are given the same amount of information. The only true difference is that he could exit out a window while the cop has to deal with the “alleged” perpetrator head on.

  • Chaim Halberstam

    yeah sure Brett Zeller, previously cop fascists like you, i.e the Nazis were a legally ‘elected,’ body, as such they had a mandate from their own citizenry to behave like that, I WONDER why people found their crimes afterwords, to be “against humanity,” they did nothing wrong by their laws!! The cops have no Public mandate to act “this way” BUT I bet this cop would’ve enjoyed the commandant’s role in schindller’s list, shooting random people from the balcony would be for better for his practice aim…

  • Chaim Halberstam

    I think you need to be introduced to ‘real’ marksmen!! I don’t doubt that after a mere 3 month basic training, EVERY “raw recruit,” in the IDF could and WOULD shoot to disable far better than this shyttily trained utah cop (+ they’ll CLAIM training the ‘idiot from utah’ cost taxpayers over a million dollars, to be THAT SHYTTY whereas the Israeli’s will admit it to be only e.g 50k 4 waaay better. Americans want to believe they have the highest standards (best trained military etc etc) BUT if they did, Vietnam wouldn’t have happened!! I mean the Brits didn’t lose to Argentina in the Falklands conflict (that would be ridiculous!!) yet vietnam to the US and Afghanistan to both U.S.S.R and now again the (dumbass) USA highlight that both militaries are nowhere near as good as they think they are, plus are far too large and disjointed to be really effective if deployed en masse in a conflict.

  • Chaim Halberstam

    ok and your point is???… some dirty muzzie could buy or assemble one of Dr Cohen’s briefcase Neutron Bombs and porter it to a copshop too!! BUT it’d be a bit of an overkill doncha think? same story here, what the cop did was “overkill!!”

  • Chaim Halberstam

    I think there’s are FAR higher percentage of guns in the general population in Israel than over here, YET I’ve only ever had ONE pulled on me in a normal fight there before (Many MANY years ago too,) or was scared of being shot while talking to authorities. Every day troops composed of young Boys/Men of 18-21 or so on average, HAVE to confront rock throwing (NOT STONES – big 2-5lb rocks!!) militants formed into crowds for self-protection, BUT cannot KILL or even use live ammo at their assailants or Amnesty International would have a field day claiming “human rights” violations. Here a cop gets to shoot an unarmed Man not waving ANYTHING at all, yet that’s called legal prob cause, LOL what a joke murica is…

  • Chaim Halberstam

    Oh REALLY!! why not do a percentage of gun ownership test Nationally? do u have figures to support your preposterous claim? if you truly believe that 250 million Americans own @least ONE gun, then you are most definitely an ‘indoctrinated on nonsense,’ stupid murican. More freedom and a safer National security situation MEAN you don’t NEED as many guns privately held (whatever the silly constitution says you have ‘the right’ to.)
    At least I’m sure MOST Israeli’s wish they had less guns there, ONLY silly Yanks want more guns, proliferated wider.

  • Ryan A. Meeks

    That’s what training is for. Even if it’s attempted and failed and killed them, that’s better than, “no I’m just going to kill them” flat out.

    Derp Derp Derp. Anything not from your delusional mind coming forth?

  • Larry Michael

    All these angry posts. Look at it from their point of view. You get a call about a gun being waved around. You see a guy that has his hands hidden around his waist, and does not comply. You see him move, as if pulling something out. Do you wan’t to risk your own life? Yes, there was no gun. Yes, this is a horrible event that should never had happened. But from the eyes of the police, that could have been their bodies on the asphalt. If it was, then would they get as much out cry? No. The officer even tried to talk to the kid, tried to stop the bleeding, and you can tell he was shaken up.

  • James

    Those cops need to be shot for what they did. No excuse what so ever. He was probably turing off his music to hear them. I guess if the guy had been black they would have been found guilty and it would be a much bigger deal.

  • Christine Reule

    This video clearly shows the shooting was not justified. It appears the District Attorneys in this country are cop blind. This should have gone to the grand jury. Anytime an unarmed civilian is shot to death by the cops, the cops should be charged with murder. It’s not justified to use deadly force under these circumstances. Does anyone know if Dillon’s family filed suit, and what resulted? Where is the FBI investigating these case? If you’re white, you’re less likely to get any attention.

    We should have mandatory laws that state whenever there’s a police officer involved shooting, the FBI and forensic experts from Quantico should be required to investigate these incidents and charges should be mandatory.

    I notice the officer in the video was more concerned with her fellow officer’s well being rather than the victim.

    We need the Supreme Court to overrule it’s bad precedence, and take away police power. When an officer swears to protect and serve, he’s saying he values civilians life more than his own. The cop in this video clearly cared more about himself than the unarmed civilian, and I didn’t see Dillon reaching for anything. I noticed he had an Ipod, so perhaps he was going to turn it off so he could hear the police?

  • Mr.Tempo

    You are an idiot, what on earth do you think life is? a deranged game of ‘Do as Simon says or your dead’ None of us are here to follow orders like sheep, none of us are here to be suppressed for pulling up our garments. Sit down down Sherlock nonsense the most elementary AI could probably provided a better response than you.

  • mnphouka

    I am interested to know who actually had the gun in the initial report? Umm I know here in MN there is no more identifying suspects by race because it is profiling …. so who actually was waving the gun? And was the cop black?

  • mnphouka

    you are kinda creepy and really angry. Why?

  • Andy Martin

    Tough talk from a thug sucking fisty boy. Come and get some puzzi.

  • Andy Martin

    No war has ever been won by thugs and apes attacking and defying cops.

  • Andy Martin

    [[ So you admit you’re a cop ]]

    Where?
    You don’t like cops? Call one of your fellow scum thugs for help when you need it.

  • Andy Martin

    Hey suck jaw, attack a cop to make an aggressive move on one, you die. Got it suck boy?

  • Andy Martin

    Screw you and all the other thugs lovers. How about I put a gun in your mouth?

  • Andy Martin

    Your punk pal ignored the cop’s lawful orders, made a stupid move and died. Too bad.

  • Andy Martin

    Hug a thug stupid.

  • Andy Martin

    It can be, and it was.

  • Andy Martin

    [[ There is no legitimate reason to shoot a person until you are being shot at.]]

    Mike Brown anyone? Get a grip. Oh and how many years on the force do you have?

  • Andy Martin

    If fools want to get shot, do what this moron and Brown did.

  • Randell Cinnamon

    How nice. You described yourself. Your parents must be so proud that they raised an insecure failure.

  • Ricky Gransee

    The day we allow law enforcement to act on fear instead of fact is the day we allow them to act as thugs instead of trained servants to the public. Numbers of mistakes lead to the final and criminal act. Many people ignorant of the basic fundamentals of how a gun works are instantly fearful as soon as they see a gun, even if it is holstered. So are you saying if one of these people see’s an open carrying citizen they should be forgiven for running the gun carrying citizen down with their car? After all, they feared for their life! Let’s be real here. Out of all the examples of publicized death by cop senerio’s, this is one of the few that deserves public out cry. But instead everyone gets behind a street thug in Ferguson. Then they wander why only the race baiters back them up.

    “Edited for spelling and bad grammer to the point where my point wasn’t clear.”

  • Ricky Gransee

    I disagree. If the cop is being attacked he/she has the right to defend his/her self. But this was an unjustified homicide. With that I will agree.

  • Ricky Gransee

    Not militaristic, that implies heavily trained and professionals. In this case neither applies. I agree with the rest of your post though. Unfortunately now days the police departments don’t receive many applications from community members. And some communities refuse to hire from within their communities for fear of Leo’s favoring their neighbors, or not being professional when they have an interaction with the classmate who bullied them back in high school.

  • Ricky Gransee

    He had a hand in his pants and ear buds in. Once he realized what was happening and seen the guns pointing at him he went hands up, and they shot him. I didn’t see any disrespect in this video, only a poor display of judgement on the part of the professionals.

  • Ricky Gransee

    I normally side with the cops, I hated the fact and still do hate the fact that in this case I could not. But you are welcome.

  • Andy Martin

    I described you thug humper. You like POS who defy authority? Your parents must be so proud that they raised an insecure failure.

  • Randell Cinnamon

    Obviously you know everything about insecurity. You prove it every infantile comment you make. Now, go kill yourself and rid the world of your inferiority.

  • Andy Martin

    I know thug lovers when I see them. Does it make your ‘insecure’ to be outed as such?

  • Randell Cinnamon

    Little boy. You don’t even have the intellectual capacity to out anyone on anything. Every comment you make is full of conjecture and supposition. Your threats reveal you to be highly insecure. Borderline sociopath. Must be so daunting to be proven wrong at every turn, eh boy? Do continue failing. It is the only thing you know in life.

  • Andy Martin

    Give a rest thug punker. No one threatened you Sally. Stupid people die every day. Your hero here is just one of those lame statistics. Got me boy? Good.

  • Randell Cinnamon

    Stay delusional, little boy. You do nothing but prove how infantile, inferior, irrelevant and insecure you are.

  • pete johnson

    Ok so, if he did have a gun, then what? The cop is supposed to guess if he is indeed reaching for one or not? Doesn’t work that way.

  • Andy Martin

    How many thugs have you raised?

  • mioman

    plain murder ,buddy

  • mioman

    what were you reaching for man? nothing stupid

  • Daniel Petersen

    American citizens should not have to submit or be shot by “peacekeepers.”
    Their rules of engagement protect officer lives first and civilian lives last…
    Yeah I am a POS for backing the people not being overly alienated and oppressed by police officers who have forgotten their vows and are a self serving entity. Our police now emulate the police forces of dictatorships throughout history, they exhibit the same curse of arrogance of ignorance compounded by arrogance of power.
    When shit hits the fan it won’t be the people’s fault but it sure as hell will be the peoples war. Reform or revolution is in our future and supporters like yourself will not be looked kindly in history… The supporters of oppression never are.

  • Daniel Petersen

    Read War in the Shadows by Robert B Asprey.
    We once thought the Viet Cong would be easily beaten by the largest conventional military ever known to man. We set up to fight a conventional war against non conventional forces and got our asses kicked for that ignorance or arrogance compounded by arrogance of power.
    There is a way to change and fight against the oppression holding us prisoner, and that fight would be easier than alot of people think here in the United States. This would be true if we tried conventional tactics against a conventional military and government but thankfully for the people not all of us are infected my American military doctrine. 0.o
