Thanks Malik. You made my day. Cant handle life, go some other place where you can.

I never saw anywhere in the process that he was searched. Hopefully he was before being taken back.

Did that officer have his gun on in the booking area? Maybe they do things differently there than we do but that ain't a great idea.

And a +1 on I hope the searched him PRIOR to going into a secure area of the PD...

The Mutt sized up everything from the moment he sat down he was squirrelly! Guys please stay alert at all times. A Mutt is a Mutt and we are always the "Apha Dog" They are under our control,that's why they are in custody! Stay safe brothers!

Dont know full story but find it interesting that he would turn himself in and then flee.

.. and his mother said come home right now!

Thats what i was thinking..i guess he had second thoughts?

Yes, it's weird since he turned himself in. To bad there is not audio. What did the cops do to make him run when he was there voluntarily? Cornered in a garage - and the 4 officers couldn't contain him without shooting him FIVE times? I wouldn't be applauding anyone. This looks like yet another embarrassing case of FAILED POLICING to me. This is what happens when you give poorly trained people restraints and guns - and the authority to use them. I would be surprised if there was not a lawsuit.

Lowery, you sure do ASSume a lot of things just from watching a video. The cops HAD to do something to make him run? People like you drag our society down.

Stop jump to conclusions that he wasn't searched. The video doesn't show every room he went in to. He could have been searched prior to entering the "booking" area.
