Ohio Police Release Bodycam Footage In Jayland Walker’s Fatal Shooting
Why did he run from the police? Why he was wearing a mask? Why did he shot at the police? Why? Why?
When the police try to pull you over you pull over.. you take responsibility for your actions whether you have drugs or guns or whatever and your vehicle.. people need to adult up and people need to stop making pathetic please about their family member being killed because they acted crazy and hostile at the police.. they should have to give a public apology for being so stupid to the police.. because at the end of the day police just want to go home from work they don't want to die at work and that's an absolute reasonable request….
Mr Joe Biden please sign an executive order requiring every police to be drug test these m********* police is out of control they are killed anybody white or black they don't give a f***
Squee mask and gun. Poor kid I’m sure he was a good kid that just wanted to rob a place. These evil police officers that take out these innocent people that run off and shoot at them.
Sometimes violent criminals die while commiting violent crimes…… Live by the sword die by the sword.
Proof that the west is wicked among mankind's. The hateful west is incapable of doing anything good, the west cannot do anything good if the did anything good is mistake. How many investigations the devil have going , things like this don't happens to black in Russia only in racist's western societies.
BLACK MASSACRE!!! 🤔MURDER!!! 🤔RACISM TO THE FULLEST!!!👀
The amount of stupid people in this world 🌎 is staggering.
2:27 why: because he shot and ran from the cops. 🤨🤦
The reason is American cops are cowboys with there guns they just don't care were they in a fairground shooting coconuts no they we're having target practice on a human being
You are white, sir. You don't have to imagine how you would feel.
The families most effected keeps calling for PEACEFUL protest and nonviolent action. Yet on the side of these demonic perpetrators called police it is consistently met with murderous violence, and then a PAID VACATION.
RIP Jayland Walker.
The police place that gun in that car I’m willing to bet
do unto others as they do unto you.,,,
The powers that be will continue this onslaught of the police department but in the meantime we have young men 16 and under out right at this moment with firearms on the and you'll hear about some one being shot tonight and most likely a young black man, and no one will mention it
Attention white people you are the problem you are our opps this is just my prediction theirs a storm coming
This is how wjite people and the system since slavery they all se us amd the enemy among us the do this cause that the mind set in the sickness in all white people
I like how people are saying it’s just because he was black? That’s so evident when your wearing a ski mask and are seen from a distance…? It he was killed by members in a black community, you wouldn’t think anything of it.
This has happened before and nothing was done. Jayland walker and all black Americans deserved justice
Only see outrage when a cop kills
Comply or die… no sympathy. It's crazy how people protest for criminals
Don't shoot at police = not getting shot by police
You can't shoot at police and call time out all he had to do was lay down but turning and reaching for the waist…….. Come on
What would have happened if one of the cops got shot and died by his hand? he did fire at them , what if he shot a innocents person driving by? would there be A PROTEST? Did he also just happen to have a full face mask with him, coz thats not a keep my ears warm kinda mask he had on. Im sure his parents had no clue what kinda life he was living.
Play stupid games win stupid prizes. Unfortunate situation
I'm sorry he is dead but let's go over the stupid mistakes he made that caused his own death. He drove away from the police and they had to chase him, he shot at the police while he was chasing him for 6 minutes, and when he stop he rushed out of the car while wearing a hockey mask. Do you see were I'm going here, If he just stopped and did what the police said, he wouldn't be dead. And don't even think about playing the racist card, one or two of the officers that shot him was black too.
These criminals run, resist arrest, shoot at officers, flee in high speed car chases, and wear ski masks to cover the face. And all of you are surprised he got shot by police? The criminal is the victim here? What are all of you on crack cocaine?
Obviously a potential criminal, shot by incompetent racist cops, both parties are off the streets. I see this as a win win for the community
The news needs to be held accountable for their polarized reporting. Let's start with the facts. Police attempted to stop a vehical for a traffic stop and the suspect refused to yeald. Gun shots could be herd comming from the vehical. When the car slowed a unknown person with a head covering fled on foot. Police attempted to use a less lethal method to stop the suspect but it did not work. The police fearing the suspect was armed shot the suspect. It was later found the suspect was a black man and the firearm was dropped.
This is not taking sides, but reporting the facts. Please stop polarized media that causes a divided country.
"We are done dying in this manner, with this fate". Well stop robbing people at gunpoint maybe?
Gotta love the photo's news crews use of victims ( makes them look so innocent )
He shot at cops – – story over – – He was a thug !
Don't BREAK THE LAW = you don't have to worry about things like this
Why are people saying the shooting was the cops fault ?
If anybody else would have shot someone – It's always the guns fault
Shame on these police officers
Their foul language
You should not be police officer
Get a good civil attorney and take them for all they have
Then do something good with the money
White criminals get killed by the police all the time, yet no one cares. Now if cops dare to do their jobs and erase a black criminal from existence, then oh boy better be ready for the protests.
Um he got in a police chase and shot at the officers I think anyone would have shot dead considering he didn’t try give up
