Cynophobes...
Today, a dog is shot by law enforcement every 98 minutes, while the number of officers who have been killed by a dog over the past 50 years rests at zero.

Video of Shooting Caught Police Propaganda Machine in Action - The Intercept

A video supplied to The New York Times, showing the shooting death of 50-year-old Walter Scott at the hands of a South Carolina police officer, appears on first viewing to be the latest example of an unarmed black person killed unnecessarily by a white cop.

But it’s so much more than that. Because three days elapsed between the shooting and the publication of the video of the shooting, the Scott incident became an illuminating case study in the routinized process through which police officers, departments and attorneys frame the use of deadly force by American cops in the most sympathetic possible terms, often claiming fear of the very people they killed. In the days after the shooting, the police version of events — an utterly typical example of the form — was trotted out, only to be sharply contradicted when the video surfaced. In most cases like this, there is no video, no definitive, undisputed record of much of what happened, and thus no way to rebut inaccurate statements by the police.

South Carolina Officer Is Charged With Murder in Black Man’s Death - NYTimes.com
A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting and killing an apparently unarmed black man in the back while he ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, had said he feared for his life because the man took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man — Walter L. Scott, 50 — fled.

The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

The shooting comes on the heels of high-profile incidents of police officers using lethal force in New York, Cleveland, Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere around the country. The deaths have sparked a national debate over whether police are too quick to use force, particularly in cases involving black men.

A White House task force has recommended a host of changes to the nation’s police policies, and President Obama dispatched Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., to cities around the country to try to improve police relations with minority neighborhoods.

North Charleston is the state’s third-largest city with a population of about 100,000. African-Americans make up about 47 percent of residents, and whites account for about 37 percent. The city police department is about 80 percent white, according to data collected by the Justice Department in 2007, the most recent period available. (...)


 

This is where I grew up.  My high school was amongst the first in the nation I believe to have a police sub station setup in the parking lot.  Race riots were quite common. I will note that the where this incident took place is a really bad area, I wouldn't go there.  Having said that, this has nothing to do with the incident just stating these are some mean streets and quite frankly there shouldn't even be any white officers patrolling that area, the fact the cities police dept. is 80 percent white is a travesty to begin with.

The cop in the road rage incident has been I.D.'d and all I can think is that I'd be in jail if I were that driver. I would have grabbed that ugly green tie and yanked his head into the door frame or at least given him a Three Stooges double-eye poke. I definitely would have gotten out of the car and walked away when the cop left for a minute, ... no way I could have maintained as well as the driver did.
