I can't watch the video. Just makes me too sick to watch a man get shot in the back. He was not obeying police I guess and police are always fearful of guns being kept in vehicles. So I guess that's their thinking. But it looks like this guys was a victim more than George Floyd was. Floyd was high on meth and had a real criminal record. Maybe... law enforcement should use an innocent until guilty approach to law enforcement. Was Blake more or less innocent? If so, then isnt something really wrong? Can a man be that big a threat to officers when his back is to them?? Do we really want officers assuming the worst? Why no presumption of innocence? Resisting arrest is a justification for killing someone?

If he had died this country would be out of control. We are one unjustified shooting away from pressing the reset button on civilization as we know it... As it is, he is in critical condition.

My own dad reached into a glovebox despite being told by an officer not to. He did this because he is a little bit obsessive compulsive. He should have been shot on the spot because he made the officer very uncomfortable... maybe he didn't get shot, because he was white. My dad, to this day, has no clue how stupid he was!!!

I guess he pulled a gun on someone in the past. (Source: Infowars) The cops often know everything about who they are dealing with before making an arrest. Maybe there needs to be more education & understanding on both sides.

My feeling is neither political party is going to get out of the current rut... Biden and Kamala are hardcore liberal prosecutors hiding behind pretty smiles... Blacks and "Rights" will be locked in jail together!!! Kamala and Biden lack a better plan and are incapable of new ideas... and Trump has no plan at all other than to get re-elected. Cynicism. May God help us.

GKins, you don’t need to ponder, Blake had a warrant of arrest for domestic abuse, criminal trespassing and sexual assault. He was no saint. Did he deserve to be shot four times ( 7 shots 4 strikes ) I don’t know. He struggled , was tasered and went to the van. Maybe trying to escape maybe to get a weapon. Not enough information.
