    The cop did what he needed to do and he didn't plant a gun either if you watch the video when he enters the SUV he exits without anything in his hands so he didn't plant a gun… the driver Lamar was using his Vehicles a deadly weapon he should have been shot. I would say that about anybody white black brown yellow it doesn't matter as for these morons protesting they do realize that they're just creating more racism right?

    They should all be arrested.

    People have the right to protest racial bias and injustices in the judicial system. Everytime a white cop kills a black men or women they get off scotfree. Time will change.Remember white America that your country is becoming majority minority.

    It's going to get ugly in St. Louis tonight. I say we find that dead drug dealers moms house and throw a BBQ in front of it. Remind her sons dead and we the people are happy he can't fill our kids with heroin anymore

    Smith was a drug dealer who rammed a police vehicle with his rented car and lead police on a high speed chase. The judge got it right; "an inner city heroin dealer who was not armed would be an anomaly."

    Must be nice to have non-white privilege and be a rioter referred to as a protester
