    MO - Police officer fatally shoots Vonderrick Myers in south St. Louis #1

    http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/c...0d7d26f7e.html

    Dotson said the officer was in a car when he saw three males and one of them started to run away but stopped. The officer did a U-turn and then all three ran. He drove through streets following them and then chased them on foot. He then got into a physical confrontation with one that escalated into gunfire.

    The teenager had a gun and fired at least three shots at the officer, who returned fire, the chief said. The teenager attempted to fire more but his gun jammed, Dotson said.

    was off-duty and patrolling a neighborhood for a privately owned security company when three men in the street saw him and started running. One of the men was grabbing at his waistband and running rather lopsided, much as someone who’s carrying a gun would. so the officer followed him, the chief said, CBS News reported.

    That man then reportedly turned and fired at the officer — and the officer shot back and killed him, Chief Dotson said
    .

    People who said they were relatives of the killed man said to the St. Louis Post Dispatch that the suspect was not armed.

    Police, however, found a 9mm Ruger, the St. Louis Post Dispatch said

    Apparently, the deceased has an open case on case net, for illegally carrying a weapon. And he was out on bond. That was said on the live chat last night, as I watched the livestream. The protests were pretty crazy last night. I hope it rains this weekend.

    I watched Bassem's live stream last night and live tweeted what he said and what they were doing. I saw protesters attack two separate police cars. Bassem threatened LE more than 15 different times. I'll try to find his live feed from last night and link it if I'm allowed.

    I honestly don't know how he is still walking free and not in jail

    OK..so, in MB's case (if I am understanding correctly), the big thing was, "He wasn't armed." And that's what was driving all of this -- riots, demonstrations, violence, etc.

    So now we have a guy who was (allegedly) armed, and actually fired the first shot....and still, people have problems with this???

    I don't get it.

    For some, it's always going to come down to a "race" thing, because that's how they are programmed....no matter what the circumstances, if one of them is white and the other is black, it's always going to be a "race" thing. The way I see it, they have no viable solution. They're not going to have an all-black police force (which, I, personally, would love, because the crime will still continue...and there will still be officer-involved shootings, but then there will be no race card to play). I'm not even sure they realize there is no solution to their claims of it being a race thing, except to get over it.

    In Twitterland, they deny he was armed. They say he was carrying a sandwich, not a gun, and the cops planted the gun on him.

    It is a fact that he was out on bond for carrying an illegal weapon and resisting arrest, but that is referred to the same way the robbery video was, as trying to deflect and taint the victim.

    No one wants to accept that he shot first, nor that he was even armed.

    I truly think they are building one bigger case against him. I didn't get to watch the livestream last night, but if he was only threatening and not actually violent, I think they are biding their time and adding up the charges so that he's not out on a $500 bond or whatever but instead has a $25,000 bond or something.

    Yeah, I could have predicted that.
