However, you would have handled this situation differently, but, at the end of the day, you killed someone and potentially shot them 5-6 times to stop them. In the eyes of the people, they are not crucifying him for JUST 16 shots, they want him to hang for "murdering" this kid.

With this logic, everyone should be punished no matter how the situation was handled because someone with a weapon that was acting hostile in public was shot and killed.

I also think a lot of TCG is dismissing what kind of kid Laquan was and just blindly going "Grrr, fuck the cop, 16 shots is way too many, he could have ran, there was NO threat, etc"

From the tribune:

McDonald started getting into trouble at an early age.

In fourth grade in late 2007, he was expelled after he was accused of throwing a chair at his teacher, according to records. "I'll kill you, (expletive)," he allegedly said.

He had three psychiatric hospitalizations by 13, and despite being told he had post-traumatic stress disorder and other serious diagnoses, he began a pattern of refusing prescribed medicine in favor of daily marijuana and other drug use, the records say. McDonald admitted he didn't have coping skills, so he used drugs, and to support his habit he began dealing drugs.

With 10 documented school suspensions in 2011, McDonald had time to roam the streets. And it wasn't long before police in his Austin neighborhood took notice.

His great-grandmother said he would "normally get arrested 2-3 days a week," according to a court record. She did not believe the police were "picking on him," she said. In fact, officers let him go with several "station adjustments," or reprimands.

Here is the article.

The complicated, short life of Laquan McDonald - Chicago Tribune

Just FYI.
Your opinion is different that mine and thats cool.

Having traces of drugs and being on them at the time are 2 totally different things. If I did a 8 ball of coke today and ran someone over with my car next week and they found traces of coke in my system. Does that mean I ran this dude over because I was fucked up on coke???

Not disputing the McDonald was a trouble maker. But thats irrelevant to what happened imo. Just because he was an asshole doesnt justify what happened.

What about Van Dyke and the 3 other officers lying about what actually happened and trying to cover it up? One of those officers was the lead detective to investigate this shooting. You cool with that???

When it comes down to it, it doesn't matter what any of us think. He is being judged by a jury of his peers. Right or wrong, they make the decision. There is a reason people aren't tried in the court of public opinion.

Regardless of drugs or not, dude had a knife. Everyone should accept that. He ignored police and was acting hostile. To me, it wouldn’t make a difference, but to a jury if you killed someone and had traces of drugs in your system, you will be held accountable to that. Why shouldn’t Laquan?

Not cool with lying and I have not yet watched the testimony of every officer. Can you provide me with details on what they lied about and where they said this?

Regardless, he had a record, acted out, had as lethal weapon and came within 15 feet of an officer ignoring orders to stop while acting hostile.

OK, they lied and attempted to cover up for a comrade.

He confessed in trial and told the truth. Think that says something about him.

Still does NOT negate the fact in any manner, this guy was hostile, brandished a lethal weapon and came within close proximity of an armed police officer.

It is a screwed up situation for everyone, but, I feel the blame is most put on the officers and siding within a criminal victim that broke the law in man ways and acted the way he did toward armed police officers.

Everyone will act and react different in certain situations. Personally, I'm not going to take a chance and give someone the opportunity to kill me.
