    "nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"

    You get that 'due process of law' when you pull a weapon or something that looks like a weapon on a cop that's close to you and you're NOT FOLLOWING THE LAWFUL ORDERS OF THE OFFICER! You're straining at gnats and swallowing camels whole. Brandishing lethal force or threat of lethal force at a cop begets the threat of death by cop.

    ****, the "nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law" implies that you go to court and fight it out there; THAT is the meaning of due process of law. If you decide to forego court and fight it out in the streets with the cops, your ability to fight it out in court is likely to be a non issue due to you being dead. You've read the words yet don't understand he meaning; reading words does not impart understanding of what was read. And I am unable to understand it for you.

    You'll be happy to know that now in California, the cops are being ordered to run away from an armed suspect that starts shooting at them or points a weapon at them. That's gonna work out just marvelously, I bet. Liberalism run totally amok.

    Mentally ill on the streets: Back in the 80's when state budgets got tight due to unfunded mandates from Washington, D.C. the state mental health facilities got shut down to help fund the unfunded mandates and they turned the inmates loose from the asylum. And the liberals were all for this; just give them a little push, a sack of pills that they were SUPPOSED to take, and let them fend for themselves, and they'll do just fine. A person who is a danger to themselves or others shouldn't be out wandering the street without a family member escorting them. The guy that got killed most likely wouldn't have gotten killed if he'd had a family member with him at all times while he was outside the house. Moot point now, though. And expecting a mentally ill person to take their meds on time makes the person expecting them to do that more mentally deficient than the mentally ill patient.

    Final thought; while you're pointing your index finger at the cop and saying 'BAD COP!' there's three of your own fingers pointing right back at you. And without having all the facts, and all video evidence in possession to make that call leaves you with making a knee jerk reaction to something you know very little about; in fact knowing practically nothing about the situation. That's how mob rule, lynch mobs, and anarchy start. To hell with any facts that may be presented, I gots the feels that he's guilty; hang him in the court of public opinion and then hang him for reals!
