  1. Reporting narrative a bit irresponsible. Headline is ok, but the first line that states ” arresting officers kill a suspect” is presumptuous and sets a potentially dangerous false narrative. We do know that the suspect died while in custody but we do not know that the officers killed him. If you know something otherwise, you should have that information as part of the report otherwise assumptions are being made that could instigate public ire and any damage as a result would put this site and the reporting person liable for the results. Consider rephrasing or adding more context to the report.

  2. An investigation is under way after arresting officers kill a suspect.


    How do we know police killed him after they’ve released the video?? Did the video show the cops killing him? This page is a joke and the reason why people don’t trust actual real news now days. This page is the real definition of fake news.
