Glad my taxpayer dollars will be spent elsewhere instead of caging this animal for years.
MISTAKES : 1) Not stopping when police asked to
2) firing during chase
3) Wearing ski mask
4) Running away from cops
5) Not surrenderring
6) Tried to push back on cops
7) a fully loaded gun in his car
So they shot him not because he is black
They shot him because he literally breaking every law and threatened the cops
So what would you expect them to do
I’m really confused why do people expect to not get shot when you flee from and disrespect police? Sure there are bad cops and you might not like them very much but what is fleeing going to do? Try to treat cops better and then maybe they’ll treat you better
You know why Waukesha parade massacre Darrell Brooks is alive? He complied.
BS!! she said unarmed in the beginning!! officers said shot(s) fired from vehicle!! a pistol was found in the the car!! sweet young man?! should’ve behaved like one!! This Rayland Walker obviously is not a law abiding citizen as we see!!
The police are trying to cover this one up because it wasn't the trying but Qyt Supremacy.
If he shoot out of the car the shell casing would be on the highway….
If he was a sweet young man why did he have a ski mask, gun and loaded magazine?
So sad they not killing any gang members just normal people
Let me say, nobody cancel the 4th of July. People are stupid. The young man was killed because he didn’t listen and put himself in a bad situation. It has nothing to do with white cop, black man. Rules and regulations are set for a reason. Black on black crime is a lot worse.
Great job officers 👏 I just would like for them to have the same energy for others too. I guess the children aren't worth it. 🤯
Dam they use enough ammo?
Reading other people's comments saddens me. Snide remarks about his innocence or guilt are unnecessary. Reading the back story, his fiancé/ girlfriend was killed recently as a result of a traffic accident resulting in her being ejected & struck & killed by a hit & run. Maybe his world spun out of control. Maybe his grief caused him to do something unthinkable. A little compassion, maybe?
why do other news sources say he didn't have a gun?
Haha "a sweet young man" huh? The boy shot at the police then he did not comply and get down on the ground but instead he turned around on the police. Officers should get an accommodation and medals for getting rid of the filth that walks these streets just shooting anyone and everyone, the parents should be sued by the city for their lack of discipline.
So…..what exactly is the problem??? I'm confused.More orchestrated fake news & controversy.
This is a total misrepresentation of the incident.. There was a hand gun recovered from the car and a shot was fired at police during a high speed chase.. There's no way they would have know he left the gun in the car.. He failed to stop even after pulling over and running on foot.. This shooting was absolutely justified.. The Akron police did their job, They handled this with restraint telling him to stop many many times.. Thanks and prayers go out to both sides of this.. It's sad that kids do this kind of thing…
Yeah something is fishy about the police shooting
With every officer issued tazers there is no reason for deadly force. All 8 officers need arrested and not allowed to be police officers anymore anywhere
Let the attorney general do their work which is to down grade cops murdering a man running away and getting shot 60+ times in the back to being the victim's fault.
Very sad! But the parents need to wake up why did he have that stuff in the car. Come on really. But there should have been no reason whatsoever for them to have shot him as many times as they did that is a disgrace
How long are my people going to just let this slide?!?! All of y'all just keep watching, and making comments. Please stand up!!!!! WTF
This family needs to get a autopsy done with the family lawyer present and begin the defense from that point. Also getting a GSR test on his hands and body also needs to be tested during the autopsy. I say that because I am trying to figure out why the gun was moved in the automobile a earlier news report shows the gun in a different location I believe it was a local news cast not a major one but definitely on YouTube.
Ain't no way I heard they protesting after that many shots they put in him🤔
Let me get this straight… a fleeing suspect can shoot at police and they may or may not return fire based on the suspects race. K tight.
DO NOT RUN FROM THE POLICE EVEN IF YOU HAVE A TICKET OR NO LICENSE OR SOMETHING
JUST TALK TO THEM
So why no video of chase at all? Something there that doesn't agree with the claims or?
They say he shot them and coroner's claim he was unarmed yet also said he had a gun with no bullets.
So if they are so sure he didn't shot at cops why aren't they plastering the chase video everywhere? Just wondering.
I just wanna know why armed mass shooters always seem to get apprehended without incident.. It's gonna trigger people but I seriously want to understand how cops are less scared of an armed white person who just killed 10 people than they are of unarmed black person who had the audacity to run from them..
Edited to Add: just bc this one may (maaaaay) have been "justified" does NOT, in any way, clear all the unjustified ones. Period.
If he's so sweet why is he running fr and shooting at anybody?… especially cops.
Why the ski mask? Hmmmmm
Sweet boy damn
AMAZING HOW THEY CAN SUPPORT A PROFESSIONAL CRIMINAL…COME TOGETHER TO FIX YOUR COMMUNITY PROBLEMS.. STOP RESISTING POLICE.
I guess America is taking their demonic ways to another level.
CBS you’re a joke, your whole goal is to turn everyone against the Police. “To BeLiEvE IT AlL StARTed WitH a TrafFIC ViOlatIOn” it all started when he evaded then proceeded to shoot at police……
What? I was watching cbs for news, not for options. The bodycam footage without commentary is enough. He was wearing a ski mask, shooting and turning around. Would did you expect cbs?
The police shot him 46 times in the back. I'm thinking that was a little overkill no matter what the man did.
Shot 48 times most shots in his back no drugs or alcohol in his system not checked for gun residue on his hand cause law don’t allow or something like that which says to me he never had a gun or shot at them low life’s killed him.
Can anyone plz post a video link that shows him shooting at the police?

They shot this man. Yet the white boys who are out here committing these mass shootings get to come out of their situation unharmed with not one bullet harming them.🤔🤷🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
Who here is defending 46 gunshot wounds again?
Wat is the truth the media are sayin he was unharmed but lord I don't know but 46 is too much for sure I hope the cops are probley investigated and if are found guilty loose there Job and get arrested I personly think 46 shot is way too much why wouldn't too shot 4 shot take him down i don't know my thought are with hes family and friends
He shot at police. He ran. He died because of his own choices and actions.
We wouldn't have heard about this if he was white.
