Match this is gasoline. Gasoline this is match

Could have been going for a gun in the car?
The media optics don't look good at this point and will no doubt only inflame the current situation

Yeah, I'll wait more more info, but the video does not look good.

In The Round Table, someone was looking for advice on how to get rid of a van.

Maybe he should drop it off at the nearest AutoZone, first thing tomorrow?

I would like to see all the available video.  I thought the Floyd incident looked a bit different after we were able to see the entire encounter.  I really hate these short clips. 

Yes, it doesn't look good.  There might be plausible reasons for the shots or not.  Don't know what was said or what was happened prior to the video starting.  The article said they attempted to tase him, but I don't know if that happened during the video or not.

Near the beginning of the video there were two soft pops -- those might have been tasers. Then there was a burst of three gunshots, a brief pause, and then four more gunshots.

There's mass chaos in Kenosha, WI after an officer involved shooting. A molotov cocktail (among other objects) was just thrown at officers, and somebody seriously injured

What a *expletive deleted*che bag of a governor. Says "While we do not have all of the details yet" then throws the cop under the bus then puts it in reverse and backs over him for good measure in the same sentence.

Incredibly stupid thing for a governor to say before more is known. He might as well be out in the crowd, Molotov cocktail in hand, helping burn down his state.

I think some of these people want the riots and chaos.  Like the Chicago Mayor, they will make sure it doesn't come back on them personally.

Compilation of the riots and aftermath:

Of note: When conservatives peacefully protest, destroy nothing, but are armed, they are violent terrorists. When the left destroys everything in sight with projectiles and fire, and are armed with ARs, they are peacefully protesting. If I were to accidentally turn down one of these streets, besides my car as a weapon of escape, I think a submachine gun in the car would be justified for my survival.

This sucks because I'm going to be in Wisconsin hunting the first couple weeks of September. I'm not driving through the twin cities on my way there like I normally do if this goes to riot mode.

I'm afraid the constant whining from the toxic, leftist goons who style themselves "the black community," and that whole month where corporate/institutional America flailed around shouting, "I love black people!" has really dampened my capacity to care about police brutality. I know I should care, but...

I know it shouldn't matter but the guy shot up in Kenosha has been previously arrested on gun charges, domestic violence and one other I forget off the top of my head, might actually be resisting arrest.

Corollary to that from the videos on that twitchy link:

The Sheriff's Dep (and possibly some of the BLM guys) just figured out one of the main gotcha's of mechinzed infantry.  Yeah you can get there all safe and sound, but deploying from that vehicle within sight of the enemy is *very* sketchy.  One or two rifleman can effectively keep those guys bottled up in their MRAPs for a long time.  That's why Brads and Strykers have big guns, and deploy in numbers to cover each other.

Timcast did a segment on this.

The shootee had apparently assaulted cops in the past and was arrested for illegal carrying of a gun and was getting into a vehicle which could have contained any number of weapons.

So the shooting sounds bad at first but giving this guy's history and his actions at the time it gets a lot more reasonable.

But what's more important here is how it looks to anyone looking for an excuse to riot. It appeared to me as I mentioned in the OP he could have been reaching for a gun. But I'm not someone who feels cop are hunting down blacks for the sport of killing them so I don't have that coloring my view of events.

How much longer before armed "peaceful protestors" and police engage in an actual firefight in one of the cities undergoing violent riots?  How long after that first firefight will the police in that locale be disarmed by the idiots governing the city where it occurs?
