If you are a black man, please do the world a favor and get out of your car with your hands up!

Ok so can someone tell me where the south carolina bama was when all of this was going on?  I mean it happened in his back yard and he isnt protesting or putting out the cops dok a mints?  Seriously, how is it possible that this happened on Sept 4th yet nothing from the Talk Real Stupid side of the fence was done?  This just farther goes to show you that they talk more than do!

The officer in this case may have been justified in being scared but he was in no way justified in not only firing but firing that many shots at a man right in front of him.  It goes to show you a little bit of what possibly happened in the Mike Brown case!  Below is the full video of the incident. You tell me what you think!

Warning: Viewer discretion advised.

How does this make any sense!  The man then keeps yelling at the dude after shooting him!  The dude did go into the car funny but that just means the cop should have yelled freeze.  The man really lucky that he is not dead and that the cop was a really awful shot!  In a way I feel sorry for the cop and the reason that I do that is because he was scared just like the majority of them are and with little to no training.  This cop and the department should be under scrutiny and I hope that there is an complete overhaul of the modern day white cops and how they encounter black males!

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A South Carolina state trooper was fired last week and arrested on Wednesday after a dash cam video showed him shooting an unarmed man during a routine traffic stop.

According to WIS, the shooting happened in the parking lot of a Circle K on Broad River Road on Sept. 4 after Lance Cpl. Sean Groubert pulled Levar Edward Jones over for a seat belt violation.

In the video released Wednesday night, Groubert asks for Jones’ license. Jones then checks his back pocket before going back to his vehicle.

Groubert then fires several shots at Jones, hitting him in the hip.

While Jones is on the ground, he asks Groubert “What did I do, sir?” Groubert then asks Jones if he was hit.

“I don’t know what happened,” Jones says in the video. “I was just getting my license.”

Groubert explains to Jones the reason he shot at him was because Jones dove head first in the vehicle.

Groubert is facing an assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature charge, which could carry 20 years in prison.

Barney Giese, Groubert’s defense attorney, said Jones reached for his license “aggressively” and Trooper Groubert thought he was reaching for a gun.

Groubert pleaded not guilty and is free after posting a $75,000 bond. He’s expected to appear in court on Oct. 24.

South Carolina Department of Public Safety Director Leroy Smith called the case disturbing.

“After my review of the facts surrounding this matter, I have determined that Mr. Groubert’s actions rose to such an extent that his employment with us must be terminated,” Smith said in a statement last week. “While Mr. Groubert was within the law to stop Mr. Jones for a safety belt violation, the force administered in this case was unwarranted, inconsistent with how our troopers are trained, and clearly in violation of Department policies.”
