  1. dumb ass kid. had he complied from the start, nothing would have happened. instead he had to be a little bitch acting above the law, and started fight the cop towards the end. guess how you don't get shot or even touched at a traffic stop? Comply, fucking comply with the law and nothing happens. who would've thought.

  2. Don’t think he needed to die but just show your license and do what he needed how hard is that, he shoud not have died

  3. I'd rather have that officer dead taz don't kill he murders people police there defending themselves even through mainly making a mass slaugter

  4. Cop went in looking for a fight but got more than he bargained for. You have to be a special kind of idiot to turn someone frashing their highbeams into a gunfight. You also have to be a special kind of retard to get attacked by a teenager 2/3rds your weight lying on his stomach. Why are you even tazing someone who is already on the floor? It's like he wanted to provoque the teen into a fight. This is terrible policing and this cop needs to go back into training. He should also see a therapist to deal with his anger issues.

  5. 1 Open the window entirely so the officer can clearly see inside.
    2 Have both hands shown when officer approaches.
    3 Be polite, even if the officer is not; you have no clue what kind of day they've had. This will likely work in your favor as he sits in his car running your information and likely not ticket you.
    4 Yes, you might be having a shit day, taking it out the officer is not going to work in your favor, they will likely look for ways to escalate the situation.
    5 Hand the police officer the correct and valid documentation, driver license and proof of insurance when he asks for this. He does not have to inform you for the reason of the stop, only when the investigation is completed is he legally required to do so. Most cops will tell you from the initial contact why. When you do not give this information when the officer has spotted a traffic infraction or suspects a crime, you can be detained.
    6 When officers tell you to step out, when you're being detained, you must comply or force will be used.
    7 When an officer tells you to get on the ground and you hesitantly do so, the officer will assume you are dangerous.
    8 When you resist the officers attempts to put your hands behind your back, the officer will likely escalate to applying force or using violence (taser in this case).
    9 When your reaction to being unsuccessfully tasered is getting up and not run away but physically go into a struggle and possibly assault the officer who has backed up and fell on his back, his only reply to your resistance will be deadly force, because any officer will assume that if he loses consciousness, you will take his gun and kill him, therefor he must be first to ensure that does not happen.

    Did you see any white folks protesting his death? Nope, because the reason we used to have a functioning society because we do not tolerate people who can not follow simple lawful instructions let alone common courtesies. Flashing your highbeam at a police officer can be interpreted as trying to blind the officer or block the reading of the license plate. The high beams are not to be used for this manner. The cop would have run his information and then told him not to do that again, instead he choose the resistant and combative way and paid for it with his life.

  6. @Mettix89 maybe you're right, but we should all remember that none of us have it all figured out. If you do, then I need to follow you. Lol

  7. Kid should’ve complied . The officer was trying to be nice , cool calm and collected and he (Deven) was being a defiant cunt for no reason. He initiated it.

  8. You fight any real man it's just a fight you fight a cop it's a death sentence? Stop hiring cops that are scared of teenage boys

  9. You got to love how untrained cops are, the 17 year old man would of easily beaten him if the cop had a gun, all cops use guns or tasers and they never use fists because they aren’t trained properly, which is good because us civilians can fight back against the dumbasses that are brainwashed by the government.

  10. You know what the real danger is here? It's that after cops see other cops be released after murdering somebody or using excessive force, will know that they can get away with it too.
    America, you need to do something about your police. The situation is getting way out of hand. Do something!

  11. This is thanks to entitlement and all you stupid YouTube lawyers that think you know the law. = dead spoiled brat. Congrats

  12. All I see is an out of control cop

    here is why

    the boy flasjed the cop how had his "brights on" a common thing drivers do to remind other drivers their "brights" are on
    this cop had a peronality issue and took it out on the kid

    the said you had your broghts on, I flashed mine to let you know, this is actually LEGAL despite what the cop may claim with his staggering 19 weeks of education ( US national avarage on Police academy, comapred to rest of the world's 1-3 years)
    the boy then had a cell phone, and it could not in any way be mistaken for a weapon
    the boy then complied and var vocal and rightfully so
    the cop's ego took a hit and the boy was killed

    the cop was justified

    this is the problem

  13. I mean the kid is stupid for running at the cop but I don’t think he should have been killed for it no way in hell

  14. I have an idea let's not pull over a kid that didn't do anything illegal he only flashed you to say hey you're flashing me regular drivers get that too so what makes you spacial to not get that message? cuz you have a gun? and then get defensive when he tries to take a call and threaten him and then piss him off to where you start to get attacked how about this put up your dukes and get down to it hit him with Your Best Shot instead of pulling out a gun and shooting him seven times he did not have a weapon you idiot "oh he was scared he was going to lose his life" how about use your hands hit him back fight don't shoot him seven times don't kill somebody for punching you don't be a little bitch about it. Well if you werent being a little bitch about him flashing you then I guess it makes since why you cant handle a fist fight. I guess its ok to shoot someone for punching you. Whats next shooting a middle schooler? a toddler? anyone with hands! If I was an officer I would have not needed to shoot him I would have at least put up a good fight until backup showed up instead of taking someone's life. Hell if you have mace you could have got that out you could have tried. But instead you got all butt her that someone was kicking your ass so you shot him seven times one time would have been enough he probably would have backed up he could have got medical attention but you shot him seven times. A kid with no wepon! Maybe he was scared for his life and that's why he was attacking you he thought you were going to kill him so he put up a fight some people do that in survival because a lot of cops be killing people for no reason. So instead of shooting somebody for hitting you don't take the lethal way out. you called for backup it was on its way you could have put up a good fight until they got there. Now if he was trying to go after your weapons that's a different story but did it need to be 7 shots? No.

  15. first of all, he used the correct procedure. asked multiple times to get out of the car, get on the ground. The kid got on the ground with a taser to his back, the kid was refusing all commands to put his hands behind his back, and was RESISTING ARREST. He lawfully used the taser in order to stop the kid from resisting, the kid shot up and began attacking the officer. In that case there was a threat to the officers life, so he pulled his gun out and shot until the threat was eliminated. If the kid did what he was fucking told to do without being a dimwit, he wouldn't have gotten himself into this stupid ass situation.

  16. AGAIN….the killer cop was cleared of wrong doing! What's new? It's open season on citizens by coward cops!!!

  17. Maybe if you taught your kids respect, and he would have done as the cop would have asked, he would still be here right now… it's his own stupid ass fault.

  18. Awee poor baby my cat scratches harder. Fuck head cops yo. Cops should only use guns if the suspect has one. Other than that tasers and rubber bullets

  19. Bro I don’t understand why everyone is mad this kid attacked the cop who knows what would have happened if he didn’t defend himself

  20. Free advice to all of the dumbasses:
    1. Give the cops your drivers license
    2. Give the cops your Insurance Card
    3. Give the cops your Vehicle registration .
    4. Dont argue with the cops.
    5. If the cops say, "your under arrest", let them take you PEACEFULLY into custody.
    6. DON'T FIGHT THE COPS.
    7. DON'T FIGHT THE COPS.
    8. DON'T FIGHT THE COPS.
    9. DON'T FIGHT THE COPS.
    10. DON'T FIGHT THE COPS .
    Hope this helps, and good luck.

  21. there's most deff some drinky poo or pillskis in that young mans system. tragic obviously. but that kid was on something. maybe he was ego tripping…

  22. The cop was a murderer!!!! For a frocking traffic stop this POS felt justified killing a teenager? We investigated ourselves and the officer was justified I killing the kid because he talked back? What a crock of shit!

    Don’t you people realize your days of pulling this shit on the citizens you work for is over and a day of reckoning is upon us all!

  23. Another American cop trained to kill and with ignorance being the other part of his training he is no better than a thug

  24. Another stupid millennial thinking that he knows the laws better than the officer. And now his parents are suing?! They should have taught him respect for law enforcement and this would have never happened!

  25. I understand the kid shouldn’t have attacked the cop, but he didn’t need to shoot him 7 times not 1 or 2 but fucking 7.

  26. Kid gets phone kicked out of his hand and then tazed at point blank range. Kid was in shock and was in fear of his life from a cop acting like he overdosed on growth hormones.

  27. Did any1 see the cops hand touch the car when he shot the boy with the tazer and when the kid tried to help the officer cop shoots him kids dead body falls on officer cutting him

  28. everyone who says this teen was innocent is just full of bs , he 100% deserved it , he'd rather make a scene instead of sorting it out like normal people and file a complaint without a scene or violence

  29. Teen: I just got tazed from 1 foot away, OUCH! I'm on the ground and I can't get up, cause the trigger happy cop is on top of me! Oh, wait, he's letting me up so that he can stage his story's outcome, (just as the body-cam is knocked off?)
    Cop: Let me shoot this cocky little sh*t a few times, just to make sure he don't get to his girlfriend and possibly reproduce more cocky little sh*ts like him. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang! Darn, my gun is jammed! I hope 7 shots will do him in! I better him myself on the forehead and make it look like the teen kicked me with his hands ..?. Now I have to make up a good story to tell. I hope I don't reproduce any trigger happy kids. ……
    PS: To all cocky little sh*ts out there: Get a dash cam, then you may prove the cop car had his high beams on.

  30. So okay lets all be real, a trained cop whos meant for this type of shit, couldnt handle a fucking teenager with his hands so he resorts to shooting him? Bet he was put on paid leave.

  31. That family is suing because they raised a crazy asshole 😂😂 what a bunch of fucking pricks, next they're gonna try to sue someone cause the moon is too bright

  32. Sgt Frost should go kill himself he should’ve just pushed the teen back not shoot him 7 times smh this is why cops are gay and should go to hell

  33. In Germany ..IMPOSSIBLE!
    No Cop in Germany would shoot a person who has no weapon … even if the officer is attacked!

  34. Hes arguing and fighting a cop. Is getting arrested and barly follows orders, then he attacks… I guess he had a deathwish.

  35. CNN could of atleast linked the actual video in the description, also "too close for it not to work" it doesn't work like that, it doesn't work even if your far close or middle ranged.

  36. Fuckin shit cops again, just knock him out with a less than lethal anything ffs, don't shoot him to death ffs! Fuckin American bullshit at its best again

  37. Piece of shit fucking cops i hope the family went threw with the lawsuit.Cops like this needs to be in prison for murder.Yet they get a vacation with pay

  38. Is it possible the kid was in fear of his life? The cop had backup on the way. He could have waited, and he would have had help to subdue him. The kid was stupid, but that's not a crime punishable by death.
