    He showed more restraint than most police would have. He didn’t shoot the guy that sucker punched him, only used deadly force when the other guy ran up on him.

    that how you handle justice and yes he showed way more restraint than police they would have shot the one who punched him he could have shot both of them now he is dead gone .and i bet you his friends will learn not to mess with anyone black again, you cant just start shit with people cause of skin color this video is symbolic of all that white kids are learnign about us .. they want to be dirty as cops sideing with them , and they love to call the nigger word ,, so empowering and ignorant of them , its sicking to me , and very triffling .. i see why not its not safe for them to be name calling then getting bold with their ignorant drinking .. boy whites gonna learn and this tape should be shown as a lesson tape to all young white kids in college .. no one has to take shit off them

    It is a good thing there was a video and witnesses! Just think what would have happen to the black man, if there was no video and witness! White people need to learn, they do not run this world! You cannot just think you can mess with anyone you want, and think that person will not defend themselves! Black people are human beings too. This world is for anyone!
