    Stop pointing guns at police officers and show a little respect and exercise a little common decency and you might be surprised at the results.

  • yennikcm

    didn’t ruin his rainbow shirt, did it?

  • FLSteamer

    I have done alot of stupid things in my life I am not proud of. Pointing a gun at a police officer IS NOT one of them.

    Gang bangers beware…if you point a gun at the police, don’t expect a dozen roses in return.

  • Patty

    why? Why, the protest, because apparently know one has taught them the law. They run the city and look for trouble, well, he got it. So, again, why are the others protesting the actions of a cop, get a clue, you uneducated thugs, when it boils down to the officer being killed or shot or the criminal, the officer will pick saving his own skin, every time.

    Cops are there to protect and serve, not just the good citizens but they CAN protect themselves, too. Morons.

  • Hammerheart

    Not only is Brandon too stupid to map out all the potential consequences of his actions but he is also ignorant of the second rule of firearm safety.

  • David Bradshaw

    ‘There were protests after his shooting’….Of course there were….

  • Individual Patriot

    These idiots will never learn. And their parents/relatives/friends will always say: “But he was such a good boy.” Yeah right.

  • Wingman

    According to locals it is always the popo that are in the wrong. They are complaining that there were chillins in the area and the cops shouldn’t have shot because of that. Hmm… Trained professionals are more dangerous than some 16yo douchebag gang banger wannabe with a stolen gun? No wonder their neighborhood has turned to crap.

  • Kathy Becker

    Obviously his mother never taught him the meaning of “consequences”. When you point a gun at a cop, you better expect to be shot. I guess this will be yet another moronic excuse for rioting, looting and burning. smh

    That officer needs to be put on administrative leave until he improves his marksmanship. That little thug should be pushing up daisies right along side Mike Brown.

  • JY1

    As soon as they find the pictures of this delinquent’s 12th birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese’s Restaurant (Gentle-Giant standard issue photo)(and those photos of him flashing gang signs will disappear forever), we are going to start hearing about how this was a little angel, straight-A student, preparing for college, choir boy, helped little old ladies cross the street…

    BUT FIRST:

    I want to hear how a 16 year old obtained, possessed, and concealed a firearm and how those actions are consistent with the behavior of a little cherub who would never have pointed a gun at a police officer.

  • geriwithag

    His mother says he’s innocent, what more do we need to know.

    Probably the same witness stated that it is sad for the mother, who recently lost a daughter who was shot by another teenager.

    But absolutely no inkling of realization that having gun toting teenagers in the area is dangerous, and her son exemplifies the reason her daughter had been killed.

  • OwebammaLies

    I suppose it’s safe to say we wont be seeing anymore pics of him throwing gang signs

  • LouAnnWatson

    if you point a gun at another armed individual you had better expect return fire.

  • LouAnnWatson

    they’ll still try

  • JY1

    You are thinking right along the lines I am.
    I don’t know for sure, I would say 21 for purchase, possession, and to get a concealed carry permit.
    I have read some things claiming 18.

    The delinquent’s age is 16. Nowhere am I seeing anything claiming purchase, possession, and concealed carry permit at 16. So this innocent, didn-do-nuthin was breaking three or more laws just standing there.

  • Dopey

    All he was doing was pointing a gun at the police and they shot him. Why?

  • Ubeturbipy

    Mama said he was innocent…..obviously she can’t afford to lose that dependent on her welfare benefits.
    Being a gang banger and armed at that must mean Brandon Thug Claxton’s black life didn’t mean a thing to mama Claxton or else she would have seen the trouble and dealt with it long before bullets flied. It’s a shame the cop didn’t squeeze the fourth off.
    As for the protesters, if they are civil and not destructive then I don’t see a problem with it but if they choose to riot, loot, bring harm to others or property then turn the dogs loose on them

  • Ubeturbipy

    We know the other teams playbook by now. Witnesses will surface with the most preposterous claims, the media will latch onto these and go with it 24/7 (while Goebbels spins in his grave from laughing). Soon (independent of any truths that do come out later) the crowd has already been media whipped to a frenzy.
    The protests soon begin and all the players who orchestrated the last ones begin to laugh in glee as they get another chance to wreak anarchy on the good black and white people in this country. But of course that’s just my opinion.
    It won’t matter much in a few days when China gets really pissed at our hackers for slowly bleeding at least 6 trillion from chinas economy since june 12th. Their best retaliatory attack on the NYSE only shut us down 4 hours.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Obama is in trouble here. If he DOESN’T speak to this incident, the blacklivesmatter movement is fractured, many torqued that he didn’t speak about this “example”. But then, if he DOES, then he opens himself up to increased hammering by one Megyn Kelly for not saying a word about the San Francisco illegal alien debacle.

    Obama has no good play here, not even his goto move (ignore it all and go play golf).
    Karma. Obama, now your karma beings.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Ya know, I have been wondering….in days prior to the internet, stories like this cold have been presented as either “pro cop or anticop” or even racist and only locals would ever really know the real score. Now, they cannot hide the things you pointed at, much less do so fast enough. Busted.

    Question though, could it be that a great number of the actual lynchings of blacks that took place weren’t race based (though some obviously were) but that most were just ‘old days thugs”?

    This madness has to stop. Baby mommas….PLEAS TEACH YOUR KIDS NOT TO BE SUCH FOOLS!!!!

    RAP – Biatches and Hoes, pimpslapping and slangin.
    Country music – Momma don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.
    Gee, maybe CULTURE has something to do with all this? Hmmmm?

  • Mike in Illinois

    21 for handguns is federal law, its the same across the nation. 18 for long guns, rimfire centerfire and 18 for shotguns as well- for purchase. Ownership can get sticky, especially regarding inheritance. State laws can be an absolute trap regarding inheritance! Your granddaddy had a pre1986 select fire AR15, HE DIES and wills it to you. You are 15. Heck, lets say you are the last living heir, just to demonstrate the point. You cannot own a Class three firearm AT ALL here in my state, much less at 15. SO where does that firearm go? At 15, you can’t be a FFL, class three at that, even if your state “allows” it. WHere does a 15 year old get loot to pay for the yearly tax stamp even IF he could “legally” possess it.

    But then there is that troublesome CONSTITUTION and even MORE troublesome “case law” CREATED by SCOTUS. Current controlling precedent is this – the right to arms, both owning AND carrying is a FUNDAMENTAL right, that is INHERENT (meaning it is within each AT BIRTH, and so BY birth. It is a right NOT granted by congress but instead enumerated as a POWER of the PEOPLE (not of any government). Now, what is “protected”? Well, arms USEFULL in the MILITARY context of course. Uh oh.
    SO you have MILLER, HELLER and McDONALD, three cases controlling, that when combined…..the GCA and NFA (the legislated law that the ATF makes “rules” from to “apply” simply CANNOT withstand what those three decided cases present.

    Modern Day Gun Control laws are FUBAR. What we have is a concoction of contrivances that cannot withstand even basic application of common sense. Why? Because it is all ARBITRARY and CAPRICIOUS in SPITE of that little part that says SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. “Laws” targeting possessing and carrying are a creation that has no constitutional support beyond MSU (making stuff up). Government absolutely does have authority to deal with improper USES outside self defense of course. Robbery rape and murder as examples……but notice that none of them depend upon arms to be criminal actions……imagine that.

  • bobdog19006

    They shot him for no reason, like always. All for a box of Skittles.

    It’s time for policing standards to be reformed.

    1. To compensate for unequal firearms training among felons, officers may not draw their weapons before at least three rounds have been fired. Black felons, six rounds and a reload are required to allow for the natural disadvantages of the Ghetto Hold.

    2. Police will make every effort to shoot the gun of an offender out of their hands, and it if this is not possible, officers will attempt to “wing” the offender to minimize legal fees.

    3. Between rival gang members, police will make no attempt to intercede, allowing contestants every opportunity to work things out peacefully.

    4. No police firearms will be discharged without first reading the offender his Miranda rights. Police are forbidden to fire their weapons until the offender agrees that he or she understands his rights in the presence of two witnesses.

    5. As is the case with traffic pursuits, fleeing felons are to be considered non-threatening to police officers and shall not be pursued.

    6. Police shall not return fire without proper legal defense counsel being present, along with a notarized consent form from the offender’s mother.

    You can look at the pictures and tell right away that these “boyz” could neither spell or define intelligent. They probably pointed the gun at the cop because he couldn’t answer their snappy little gang signs. I have been legally carrying a gun for about 30 years and rule that has stood me in good graces with all is do not get your gun out to impress people. Only get your gun out if you are going to shoot it. Another one bites the dust!

    You betcha bubba. I have done so for many years. Sadly, the basis for this corruption spans almost the entire life of this nation. We the People never delegated the power to MAKE law to the Judiciary, yet they claim the authority to do so. It is my hope that the phrase “the nine robed kings” catches on, because that is exactly how they act!
    Make no mistake, the BAR views us STILL as SUBJECTS, at their feet, groveling……as we do their bidding because the say so.

    The question is, why do the people of this country do so?

  • Bubba

    Because there has been no charismatic person to organize and lead an armed overthrow of what has become our rulers instead of our government. Another factor is our education system teaching that you don’t figure out things for yourself, you don’t turn to a fictitious god, you always turn to government for the answer to any question and the solution to any problem. I truly believe the USA as my generation knew it is doomed forever. One day perhaps not too far in the future there will be the choice of who are going to follow, God or the government.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Bubba, media contributed to our current situation too. They played arbiter of knowledge, just as was done in schools. The internet is changing things though…it is just gonna take time. Stay the course and keep sharing the truth. We will win this fight, one way or the other.

  • Bubba

    There is a lot to be said about the information exchanges on the internet but the government wants control of that too so they can shut it and cell phones down with a flip of a switch. I don’t believe that we have seen anywhere near the worst of our government yet. It will be a fight that my grandsons face as I am not going to live forever.

  • Mike in Illinois

    Bubba, every generation has to fight for freedom because tyrants will always exist….as they always have. My sons and their sons will indeed have to fight…..right now is demonstrating what happens when far too many rest on laurels. Freedom is not free, though some seem to think it is. I guess they gotta learn the hard way….

  • Bubba

    It is what it is and I can’t change it but I hate what my generation left for our kids and it will be worse what they leave for their kids.

  • Mike in Illinois

    My kids asked me once why it is I stir the pot all the time, why I am so outspoken when other parents aren’t. I told them simply, this.
    Kids, when you are grown, with kids of your own, and you really realize how screwed up things are, you will NEVER ask why it is your father didn’t at least try to stop it from happening, that he didn’t do his best to turn the tide. You will always know that your old man refused to bow…..and hopefully that will translate into you doing the same thing for your kids.
    I meant every word.
