    The procedure for American cops seems to be escalate the situation till deadly force becomes necessary. If you can't deal with a cocky teenager without shooting them seven times maybe you're in the wrong line of work. It takes four years of schooling to become a cop in my country and shit like this just doesn't happen here. But I can see from the comments that Americans don't mind seeing their fellow country men and women be abused and murdered by police.

    Children don't lesen respect anymore. They are Leaving school as the same brats they were entering school. Parents learn them wrong attitude

    Ohhhh cool…so if someone less than half my size tries to attack me with scratching in public I can shoot them 7 times. Cool. Saving this video for future preference

  4. Alvaro Valdovinos

    This officer was wrong on so many levels!
    The way the officer reacted was NOT reasonable for the so "crime".
    Why is it always when officers are being recorded, they seem to escalate situations? Why does it seem that they do always the opposite of what they were taught in school?

    Maybe it is time for the American Police Academy to revise their system! It should be a longer course like in other countries ( not just a couple of weeks or months!). They should add in psychological evaluations to determine how these future officers react to stress situations; and they need a real hard course in not only in psychology but in sociology.
    America is looking bad to the rest of the world in these last couple of years. Such a shame!

    Hate cops..Shame the cunt of a policeman wasn't shot and killed. Also a shame the cunt of a coppers wife and kids werent murdered also ..A derad cop is a good cop

  6. Glenn Turner

    Always important for cops to use their guns to kill teenagers who haven't committed a crime…. Lets go the the cops home and rape his wife then shoot her and then his kids in the fucking head.. Hate cops…

  7. rob hooper

    ali bakr- obviously you are just as blind as you are stupid if you can't see that the cop did everything by the book and the kid escalated this all the way up the flagpole..

  8. rolyrod14

    You know you’re police force are pansies when they’re in fear of their life while fighting a 17 year old while on ground. The police forces finest! 😂😂😂 this cop probably beat himself up to get away with it.

  9. Queen Elizabeth II

    I think the officer got clocked on the head by the guy, but then he self inflicted the head injury on himself as insurance in case he got thrown under the bus by his department.

  10. David Shields

    Flashing lights and the kid dies. There’s something seriously wrong with the police in America. Where do they think the deserve respect from. The type of people who become cops certainly don’t deserve respect.

  11. Wesley Daniel

    Fuck this dead kid and his parents. This is the problem with America. Go to North Africa and travel around for a couple days to see what real freedom is you stupid flat landers.

  12. RedNasty7

    I like how the title banner says
    UNARMED TEEN KILLED AFTER FLASHING HIS HIGH BEAMS
    CNN and their fuckery
    More like entitled white kid refuses to comply with traffic stop, resist arrested and assualts Officer and results in fatal shooting

  13. Kat

    both are in the wrong here.. Kid tried to pull some shit, and start arguing. When the cop kicked his phone out of his hand, he severely escalated the situation. This just proves how incompotent some officers are, and a 17 yr old died because he flashed his light. I thank god each day for not being born in this fucked up country

    In addition, shooting someone 7 times because the kid took some swings in self defense.. He is a trained cop and this is a 17 yr old kid lol, ur telling me there is no other way the cop could have handled this? Bruh😂😂

  14. Adam C

    JUST ANOTHER BLUE ISIS EXECUTION OF A TEENAGER! WOW! WHAT A FUCKING COWARD, AND WHERE ARE THE COWARDLY PARENTS??? WOW! SUE FOR MONEY, BUT REVENGE IS ALWAYS OFF THE TABLE! WELL KILL MY KID, AND EVEN GOD COULDNT STOP ME. I DONT CARE WHAT KIND OF CUTE COSTUME YOU WEAR!

  15. lukas evenson

    in the last video i watched the opening sentence was white officer forceably pushes black teenage girl. In this video they say nothing about white cop shoots white teen. If race does not matter and the news was objective they would be consistent about calling out whos white and black. This is the crap world we live in this is the news the thing people are suppost to rely on to be up to date in society disgusting disgusting

  16. Jason Redden

    Good job police! See how shit gets out of hand when all you had to do was shut the fuck up and get your day in court. No need to argue and act like a stupid fucking bitch. Do what the police say and get your day in court. Simple logic and it will save your life and the officer doesn't have to take necessary extremes.

  17. Steelo G And Natalia

    That's bullshit he didn't even have a fucking gun or any weapons. All because that heartless piece of shit officer got butthurt for high beams. I hope that family won there law suit. Officer needs to charged with murder and sent to prison to rot.

  18. Echo Trip

    What an idiot that kid was. Same exact kind of traffic stop happened to me when i was his age, and I complied with the cops and was on my way in a few minutes. Sure, cops shouldn't pull people over for that, but this is the wrong time to be defiant and oppositional.

  19. John D Nomura

    Wow when did deadly force become the commen response for traffic stops – teenager vs a trained officer of the law – too many times offices have responded with gun fire – on unarmed people » this is called the John Wayne syndrome & and should of been recognized during the aptitude test – officer call for back up and still decided to take on the teenager on his own – wow and now a kid is dead really coming together a son is gone – fear for his life let's see (unarmed kid who he tazed vs officer with a bulletproof vest / tazer / side arm / retractable baton) was the kid a kung fu master and 7 shots really – officer is required to wound NOT KILL – but theses day you see people getting KILLED over conversations or traffic stops _ this is why AI (artificial intelligence) robots will take over our society because we cannot logically manage our everyday interactions with each other – no rational thinking just reaction to stupidity and society is that sensitive now that there is always an over reacting situation – humanity first right!

  20. Battle Angel

    Shitty white privileged kid kind of deserves it, all the kid had to do was comply, provide his license and insurance and it would have ended up finishing within 2 or 3 mins

  21. Lucas Pettican

    Imagine you think you going to your GF house to pass some time bond and maybe even later in life get married hey maybe even a bit of the woo hoo, but you get fucking shot because some cop has the right to have a gun. Poor kid…

  22. diegodinamita dd

    They use the taser for make you move , when u move for the electricity , that give the rigth to the officer of shoot you because your move , after 1 year of court ,they gonna stay inside the safety office working .

  23. M Kelley

    Everyone who gets assaulted by an angry cop gets charged with assaulting a cop. The cop was overly aggressive and wanted to kill his man. Notice what he said to the dispatcher. "I shot one". Putting the 17 year old on the ground was to humiliate him not because he posed a danger. The cop wanted to use the taser and wanted to use his gun.

  24. MustangWriter

    Cop was afraid of 17 year old laying on the ground? Time to hire men instead of p*ssies. The cops first mistake was ordering the kid out of his car. To do so the driver needs to have committed a crime. A traffic stop IS NOT A CRIME. There is no injured party. Then to make the kid get in the dirt? Right near the hiway? Are you kidding me? So a 17 year old NATURALLY fights off being tazed and he gets shot 7 FREAKIN' TIMES? An old cop once told me its time to get rid of tazers. He said before tazers you actually had to speak and reason with a person/suspect. Now they are soooooo quick to taz because they can. Then SHOOT if that doesn't work. That cop needs to be put down like a mad dog. Does anyone else find it insane that a cop goes to the police academy for 6 months of training, but a beautician has to go to cosmetology school for 2 years? Yeah… I thought so.

  25. B H

    Are you really the aggressor even if the police started the initial contact and confrontation?? Self defense laws work well when you know the law. Self defense at all times….dont you know….

  26. Joe Pen

    Grown man trained for hand to hand combat can't handle a little boy. He punched me so I shot him 7 times self defense give me a break I could have push that string bean kid on his ass to stop him not end his life cop deserves the firing squad

  27. Commander Shepherd X

    I call Li bullshit I think he head-butted him multiple times and shot him for no reasonable cause I think it's a manslaughter on police officer and he murdered the boy and he was defending himself

  28. James Barker

    Cops are such pussies now a days like he came at you with just his fist….a fucking teen, and you don't have the training to subdue him you go straight for the pistol that's pathetic.

  29. David Johnson

    Can't help but notice that 'White Lives Matter' didn't show up, start protesting, calling for dead cops, and then started a full on riot and burned the town down. I wonder why?

  30. Avgamer 88

    These dudes are retards. He not only resisted arrest BUT HE ATTACKED A FUCKING POLICE OFFICER. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU EXPECT IS GOING TO HAPPEN. “Oh yeah? You flash me with your high beams, refused to show license and registration, resisted arrest. Yeah it’s ok for you to attack me” jeez wtf is wrong with people.

  31. Buzzramjet

    FUCKING COP KILLED A KID OVER A BRIGHT LIGHT? I can only hope the cop ends up dead someday. Hopefully while hanging from a tree. Scumbag. All that just because a kid flashed his lights. WHAT exactly is that crime?

  32. marisol marisol

    Wow really so je decided to shoot him to death instead of trying to restrain him…freaken asshole!!! Again i say thése officers walk around with this im your God attitude and are to quick to pull the trigger 🙂
