Here's a cleaner version. The video is still graphic, some people may want to turn away.

Well this is my opinion. and it may not mean much but its how i feel. I believe the whole thing is bad all around and the officer was obviously wrong. But. If you watch the video and pay attention he was getting up and not listening. Talib kweli said what do i tell my son? Im gonna tell my son to just listen to the police. Every time this happens we say f the police and say they dont like us as people. I was pissed off and had to really think about the whole thing and even had a talk with my bestfriend about rebelling or acting stupid. But he told me every time this happens its the victim that does put the officer in the situation. if he would have set down and did what he was told it may not have happened that way. Here in shreveport there was a black male who was shot and every body acted up and i was like even though its a phone he was waving at the cops it would alert someone to defend themselfs in the situation. The Genna 6 group we fought so hard for them but the truth was they attacked that kid they beat that kid and just like anyone else there responsible for that. Dialo (excuse if i spell it wrong) But he pulled out his wallet to verify who he was. if i was a officer and he reached in his back pocket for something after i told hem to put his hands up i have kids its him or me. now i wont shoot to kill but i would fire. rodney king was high of pcp when he was beat resisting arrest. the kid in ohio who was kill a couple years back was resisting arrest. Now i know i will get tons of hate mail and im ready for it. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THIS CLEAR NONE OF THESE KIDS DESERVED TO BE SHOT BEAT OR TREATED UNFAIRLY AND ITS A OBVIOUS RACE ISSUE BUT IF WE AS PEOPLE KEEP PUTTING OUR HEAD IN THE LIONS MOUTH IT WILL BITE. MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL THE VICTIMS IN ALL OF THESE CASES BUT IF YOU WERE A COP AND HAD TO GO HOME TO YOUR FAMILY AND SOMEONE WHIT BLACK BROWN YELLOW OR GREEN WOULD U SHOOT FIRST OR BE SHOT? PLEASE DONT THINK IM SAYING THE COPS ARE RIGHT THEY SHOULD NOT SHOOT TO KILL BUT WE JUST NEED TO LISTEN BE QUIET AND CHILL AND STOP BEING SCARED OF THE POLICE AND NOT PANIC WHEN WE GET PULLED OVER. I HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY TWICE AND WHEN I THINK ABOUT IT, IT WAS ME NOT LISTENING AT ALL AND WANTING TO DO MY OWN THING. LETS NOT WORRY ABOUT THIS LETS FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIX OUR COMMUNITIES AND STOP THE BLACK ON BLACK CRIME. LETS TAKE BACK OUR COMMUNITIES AND FIGHT WHATS AT HOME. ONE LOVE AND PLEASE DONT THINK IM ON THE COPS SIDE IM JUST LOOKING AT THE TRUTH AND WHAT WE NEED TO DO. HOLLA
