Portland shooting

Recently in Portland an unarmed man was shot by a police officer. There is a great hue and cry, angry people calling for the officer to be fired. Now I'm no fan of police officers, but honestly... the fact that the man had no weapon is irrelevant. He was reaching for something in his waistband. If he was stupid enough to do that, he deserves to get shot.

Granted, there were communications problems that need to be addressed, but still, the people screaming in mindless rage at the officer need to SHUT THE FUCK UP. When you're around the police, you DO NOT reach for your waistband. You keep your hands where they can see them. Cops treat non-cops as potentially dangerous people; it's safest to treat cops the same way and be as cautious as possible, and not give them a reason to get violent. And if you're fool enough to not be cautious, you should be considered a candidate for the Darwin Awards.
