[su_right_ad]Once again, we have a case of police misconduct. They should know by now they’re being videotaped. Almost always.

Since-fired South Carolina Highway Patrol officer Sean Groubert was arrested and charged with assault and battery Wednesday, stemming from an incident in Columbia, SC in which he shot a motorist during a traffic stop.

Video shows Groubert pulling up to Levar Jones, who had just parked at a gas station (the stop was ostensibly over a seat belt violation).

Groubert instructed Jones to get his license, but when Jones reached into the car to retrieve it Groubert began shooting. Groubert continued firing even after Jones, who was unarmed, had backed away from the car with his hands raised.

“Why did you shoot me?” Jones is heard to ask. “I just got my license! You said get my license.” When Groubert asked if Jones was hit, he replied, “I can’t feel my legs.”

    racism, taught over many generations and perfected to the point that a man with a gun is so frightened by a skinny black kid he feels the need to shoot and yell

    I have come to the conclusion that police are in fear of the people they serve, Hmmm, now that I am thinking about it, I feel our ‘Elected Officials’ feel the same…..

    Point one: the cop gave him approx 1.5 seconds before screaming “Get out of the car!!” and shooting at him.

    Point two(and I apologize for this): Shoot that cop, but give him 1.5 seconds of running time.
    I am so sick of this sh*t.
