  1. If he was thar concerned he would have waited to daylight knocked on the door himself as a tough man. And if no response then call the police. Mind your business and dont assume

  2. It’s not the gun in the home that was the threat It was the armed moron outside the home that was the threat

  3. Why this neighborhood worried about her ? Her lights was on he didnt see anybody nothing why would u call 911 or non emergency number that neighborhood be in her business he didn't see anything and the lights was ON!!!

  4. No wonder cops have the HIGHEST SUICIDE rate in America ! They need better trainning !

  5. I think a 5 million lawsuit wouldnt be enough !

  6. I feel this officer should be totally exonerated as this was clearly a complete accident: he saw the gun and he quickly engaged his police training. This was not racist, it was accidental. Our police officers face frightening situations, especially in the wee hours of the night. She had a gun, it fit with the neighbor calling the police in the first place at that late hour

  7. He didn't "shoot a woman inside her home," he was called there very late at night appearing to be unusual circumstances going on after a neighbor called the police on the young woman

  8. I noticed the reporter had to mention there was a fire armed in the home. I WONDER WHY? This is Texas , majority of the people have firearms.

  9. Black people are threat just by being black

  10. maybe will get 10 years in jail
    you know
    just another black killed by cop

  11. All law enforcement is RACIST…. Ain't nothing new…

  12. This is Really Sad and Disturbing all the neighbor was calling just for concern i mean her front door was open asking for somebody to break into the house. but nope that officer should be charged for Murder! what has this world become!? killing someone in their own home.

  13. This is sad a cop sneaking around somebody’s house looks in a window and then shoots a person through the window this is getting ridiculous it seems like these cops have no balls anymore they’re way too nervous to shoot somebody with no provocation that’s murder

  14. So where did all that Human rights that Americans bragged about went?

  15. The officer knew the correct protocol he just didn't use it by choice. He went by stereotype instead, he thought it's a bad part of town so no big deal if i killed someone, He thought the person will have a criminal record, drugs in the house, illegal weapons and no education. They won't look at me twice for taking this useless life but he got it wrong same as Botham.

  16. The Police are SUPPOSED to be the Adults in the room…

  17. I’m White… Lock him up!!! Whoever gave this guy a Badge should be locked up also… WTF?

  18. Door is open for unknow reason, police arrives and kills last guy alive there omfg

  19. MESSAGE TO BLACKS IN AMERICA: WE ARE NOT SAFE WITH GUNS OR WITH OUT GUNS. MAY AS WELL BE UNSAFE WITH THEM.

  20. police: There was a gun in the house!..
    Gun: I was in the bathroom….

  21. This is worse than Amber Gyger knocking then shooting first now it's just shoot through the window smdh unbelievable the number of murders these white supremacists get away with just by becoming a cop.

  22. Genocide on the Isrealite race but God is about to pay America a visit.

  23. I read a news story that said the towns mayor commented that the gun found in the house by the homeowner was ‘irrelevant’…i beg to differ. It goes to show that his perception of a threat was real. We only learn after the shooting that she was not a threat. What would we call this incident if the homeowner shot the cop? A tragedy. Maybe the cop made some mistakes but tough to condemn him of murder. It was an accident. Cops are people that have received SOME training…they’re not perfect. He was trying to protect and service and circumstances led to this woman’s tragic death.

  24. I am so scared for my two kids, i stress everyday at work!!!!!

  25. Can we call in a welfare check on his home?

  26. POLICE TRAINING 3 MONTHS HAIR STYLIST TRAINING 3 YEARS THATS WHY WE GOT THUGS AS COPS All my high school bullys are cops CrAzy StoRy
