    Watch this kid taunt a police officer, defying his orders, acting like he’s going to get in his car and leave, the cop tazes him.
    Then he chases the officer, screaming like a banshee, while two more officers stand by and watch.
    He almost caught the cop, then he runs and jumps in the cops patrol car, the cop has a weapon pointed on him just outside the door, the kid opens the door on the cop, knocking him back.
    Then he gets in his own car as if to flee and accelerates fast, backwards, weaving wildly by the cops, then puts it in drive and crashes into the cops car. Then he gets out of his car and runs away.
    No shots fired.

    California cop flees after screaming man shrugs off stun gun blast, chases after him

    CHP: Protester hit by Sacramento County Sheriff's Department SUV

    This video is very troubling. It's clear that the Sheriffs SUV hit the woman. What's not clear is why the deputy failed to stop and render aid to the woman.

    Our Stephon Clark lie – ‘Diverse’ Sacramento is not as tolerant as we think

    I know. I saw it last night.
    The poor woman looks like hell, blood all over her..
    Sacramento officers need to learn some anger management and coping mechanisms.
    Take a deep breath.
    Count to ten.

    They are off their rockers with aggression and this
    hit and run was a direct defiance of the offending officer’s accountability to the rule of law. .

    Wow. The Sacramento police are not showing themselves in a good light at the moment.

    From the video, it doesn't appear to be a dark skinned person.

    If I lived in Sacramento, the last place I'd be would be joining any protesters.
    Maybe when people realize that rioting, burning down businesses of innocent people, blocking the roadways of innocent people and restricting their freedom to travel, inflicting bodily harm, and justifiably being arrested for something that has been done over and over where the end result has been proven to be no result, I'll change my mind.
    On the other hand, if people want to peacefully protest at the State House steps, and induce strict legislation that punish cops for their wrong doing, no different than anyone else, I'm all in.

    You must have missed the Civil Rights Movement and the Viet Nam War.

    There have been no riots in Sacramento, no burning down of businesses in Sacramento, and no other violent acts off the protesters either. The only violent act we've seen is a Sheriff's car driving into the protesters and injuring one.

    I guess if the only protest against extra judicial killings by police offficers is totally non-annoying it will never be heard. Which is why the protesters are blocking roadways and making a nuisance of themselves. Good for them, and shame on anyone who doesn't get out and march with them.

    If I don't join the protesters I should be shamed? Why do you say that?

    I'm glad you brought that up.
    MLK made it clear that his protests were to be non violent. The violence that took place was initiated by law enforcement trying to enforce Jim Crow laws. Once he made his presence well known to the world, through his non violent protests, then he caught the attention of Robert Kennedy which was the beginning of change. LBJ inacted the legislation.
    The same goes for the Vietnam war.For the most part, peaceful demonstrations by student protesters that did not only want an end to the war, but also didn't want the ROTC recruiters on campus. Kent State was a good example, A few decided to start burning buildings, and that's when the National Guard was called in. We all know the end result of that.
    99% of those protests were non violent, and they did make a difference, however, the real reason that war ended was due to the Tet Offensive, and Walter Cronkite telling the worlds his views.
    I know this is OT, but here's what he said. Once The statement was made LBJ said "If I lost Cronkite, I have lost middle america" That was the beginning of the end.

    What Martin Luther King Jr Really Thought About Riots

    "I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity.

    "And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention."

    I'll pass. I have no desire to be "non annoying" by punishing someone that wants to go to an arena to see a game, or wants to travel down I 5 who had nothing to do with this.

    I don't want to go OT too much, but I'll post this.To me, this is about a human being that was imo, unjustifiably shot. I don't care if he was black or white.

    The protest in Sacramento has been non violent, as well.
    The only injury was by a hit and run sheriff officer running over a peaceful protester.
