I'm so glad this story came to light.

While I support this officer's right to express his opinions without fear of being fired, this also reveals what this officer thinks of certain people. I wonder how many other police officers harbor these feelings to other human beings and think of them and treat them as "maggots."

How is Bill Harris going to react to this? He has to be supportive of the police department and police officers.

Just one of Philly's homophobic, self-serving finest.

Cop cries on social media about not being served. It's a shame Olive Garden caved.

I'm so sad to hear about this incident but so glad this is getting the attention it deserves.

A cop, with his panties up in a bunch, is offended when a teen flashes his lights at him, drags him out of his car, and shoots him seven times, killing him.

I would have more respect for police if the good ones publicly condemned actions like these of cops who kill black people in the middle of the street. They shot him 16 times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix2N6_jLAgA

The lad shouldn't be dead. The cop acted too quickly and a jury of 12 will decide his fate.
But when you break in to vehicles high on PCP, stab the tire of a cop car, skip down a busy 4 lane street in Chicago then pull a knife out when 3 cop cars arrive ignoring their commends getting killed is one distinct possible outcome.
I declare the cop 65% to blame and the victim 35% to blame for his own death.

Should the 17 year old have been shot for his actions... absolutely.
Should he have been shot at and hit numerous times after he fell to the ground… probably not.
Let the jury decide the officer’s fate.

I had 3 cops at my house yesterday for Thanksgiving. This case was not discussed. I only mention it for some context to my post.
A cop only uses deadly force when they feel either their life or the life of some innocent party is in immediate danger. Its a bit hard to imagine that was the case right then and there. The dead guy had moved one entire lane away from the cops as he moved down the road. So while he was moving in their general direction as opposed to the opposite direction he was still moving at an angle that would widen rather than narrow the gap. When you fire your weapon it is by definition a deadly force action. Police are trained that if you shoot you shoot to kill. There is no winging people in the arm or leg. That's just TV stuff. The 16 rounds certainly seems excessive but the goal upon pulling the trigger is death, even if its one round.

Sorry craig. I guess we don’t see eye to eye with the first sentence of my post. However, I think we’re on the same page with the rest of it. Even though our opinions are not the same, I’ll respect your point of view and leave it at that.
May you and your family have a happy holiday... and I’m not trying to be sarcastic.

Cop rolls up. Black guy walks away from cop. Six seconds later black guy has 16 bullets in him.

I think both are responsible, but dropping the knife would have been a good start. I do feel the cop used excessive force by firing the gun and he should serve time for manslaughter.

I think the PA case with a female cop was worse than this one. She was clearly in over her head and killed an un-armed older man that was only trying to run away. She was acquitted and wants to return to police work - let hope it's only a desk job.

So carrying a knife and walking away from a cop is grounds for murdering someone?

Your middle sentence is not remotely accurate. The distance between him and the cops was getting smaller not larger. As I stated earlier he was not walking directly at them but was walking in their general direction shortening the gap between them. Its simple geometry.
