    If police suspect a gun they call in firearms officers.

    And if police suspect a drug, they should take them to the hospital.
    Anyway, it's a hypothetical situation. In your view, who would be responsible for the death?

    The one carrying the gun.

    The man resisting arrest. The officer would not be blamed by any reasonable person. Someone resisting arrest wilfully incurs the risk of death or injury that may happen to him in the reasonable process of arresting him, and additionally incurs the blame for any injuries that occur to the officer or an outsider.
    So in that situation, you are saying that the man caused his own death by being shot by a police officer? Was it a self inflicted injury? Death by suicide perhaps?
    Had it not been for the officers actions, he would still be alive.

    Death by misadventure.

    Welp he's resisting here. The real cause of death is not even the object. It's that he resisted. If he hadn't, the wrestle wouldn't have happened and then no one would've panicked. Real G's calmly get arrested because they have connections to get them outta jail :confused:.

    However whether the people detaining him are guilty or not, there's still hatred say in the comments and I think the BLM aren't even protesting the police actions, but they're kneejerking people who consider Charles's death a victory. Which is a pointless fight.

    So you're expecting the verdict of this case to be deemed as death by misadventure?

    If there is no wrongdoing by the officers (and I can see no evidence of that), then yes.

    Charles' parents have continuously asked for peace until the investigation is resolved.

    Pockets of thugs attacked police and members of the public yelling "No justice, no peace" recently and holding "Black Lives Matter" signs.

    Maybe BLM doesn't care about individual black people, maybe they're more concerned with their anti-cop narrative?!

    This whole affair will end soon anyway, but there is no way of predicting how the community will react to it.

    Who's the anti police brigade?
    Does criticising the police qualify you to be part of the anti police brigade?
    Is any skepticism about the integrity of some police officers unwarranted in all situations?

    No, but there are boundaries. BLM has stepped over it.

    I dunno what they're playing at. The BLM and non-BLM civil rights activists ruin their entire chances at being taken seriously when they act in this way or don't separate themselves from the BLM-wanna-be's. They also need to pick their battles more wisely. If someone has been in trouble with the law or resists arrest or simple orders regardless of whether they are being detained lawfully or not, then... Not saying the police are always innocent but neither are the people in their grips. Tough love, tough luck.

    This is what the IPCC had to say:

    '"We will independently examine the circumstances of this incident, we will follow the evidence, we will consider whether there is an indication there may have been misconduct or criminality, and we will seek to answer the questions that Rashan's family and the community of Hackney understandably have."'

    BLM is a movement not a special organisation.
    Stop generalising the opinions of every supporter because it suits your agenda to do so. They are not all police hating thugs.

    A large chunk of them are, and it certainly attracts cop-haters and killers.
