Rumors said cop shot a teen. It was the other way around

A Minnesota police officer could have shot an armed teen early, and though the officer would've been completely justified, he held his fire, St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said.
The officer was shot during a struggle, Anderson said, but neither he nor his partner shot back and the suspect was arrested.
Following the incident, residents on the south side of the city heard via social media that police shot two black men, and about 100 marchers damaged property on their way to the police station, Anderson said at a news conference. He was joined by an NAACP official, a local pastor and the mayor.
"We had information that when they arrived here their intent was to damage property and take over our police station. That didn't happen," the chief said. "It is abhorrent to me. … This place could've been on fire over a lie — not just some misinformation, not just a few facts here and there. It was flat-out untrue."
The incident came just three weeks after police in Minneapolis, about an hour's drive southeast, killed George Floyd, setting off nationwide protests.
Pastor James Alberts of Higher Ground Church of God and Christ in St. Cloud appeared alongside Anderson to say the anger over Floyd's killing — and the long-raging "pandemic" of racism — is justified, but the St. Cloud police showed that "it is possible to police and not kill."
"The community is rightfully concerned, but there's no one dead here today. We're thankful that no one has died," he said.

    1. @G C Come on dude… This was the best I’ve seen CNN do…its a start…give them props.🇺🇸

    1. I’m assuming you’re joking, but that was actually done once. Bullet never touched the guys hands, but shot the revolver ONLY. The guy holding the gun, literally said “NICE SHOT” it’s on video

    1. Lmao I’m 100% sure that quote came from the gospel of Mark 3:25
      Jesus states “And if a house be divided agiants itself, that house cannot stand”.- Jesus

      “You woketard” – CalmYourTitsSon

    2. A speech made by Abraham Lincoln to the Illinois Republican convention in 1858. In the speech, Lincoln noted that conflict between North and South over slavery was intensifying. He asserted that the conflict would not stop until a crisis was reached and passed, for, in a biblical phrase Lincoln used, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” He continued: “I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.”

  1. We can all get behind denouncing police brutality, but this agenda of police hatred and dismantling police entirely is ridiculous.

    1. Jeffrey Dahmer
      Not simply because he got shot, rather, because he accepted a risk when he took the job to be a police officer and when confronted with that risk, he did the hard thing instead of the safe thing. When compared to the level of authority and responsibility they are granted (deadly force), police officers typically have low introductory education requirements (no college degree necessary) and short academy training periods (six months on average). For this job, they are compensated better than teachers and nurses who often undertake massive student loan debt in order to enter their professions. The reason they are compensated higher is because their job assumes a greater risk to their own safety on a daily basis.

      This officer accepted that risk. Not only did he refrain from shooting first (which would have been justified), or even returning fire (which also would have been justified), this officer put the life of a young man from his community, who wished him harm, above his own life and embraced his own potential mortality so that everybody lived. That makes him a hero.

  2. What is it with not fact checking? Who the hell sits, reads something on social media and takes it as gospel without checking if it’s true? GTFOH

    1. Morons follow and believe all the stupidity they read on social media.

  3. A textbook example of when deadly force is justified. Best example of holding back as well. That father should count his blessings. I am grateful both sides saw the blessing.

    1. Agree. That’s the point. Cops first thought isn’t to protect themselves. Their first thought is only shoot if you see other citizens at risk.

    2. I wish all Americans were able to see this incidence as how you saw it, a blessing! Do you think this can be achieved in the US? I think so. Simply follow this example as much as you can. I know it sounds easy, but it can also be tried in Anycity, America.

  4. Where are all the celebrities offering to pay their bills? Guess only crime pays these days.

    1. How so? He didn’t shoot the little bastard. No cop should have to put their life on the line so a gunman can live to kill another day. Watch, this bastard is really gonna screw up someday

  5. So now police are afraid to defend themselves because of the reaction of media and death threats they would receive..

    1. Polls have been way off AGAIN because Trump supporters are understandably very private and hang up when pollsters call them. Thank you CNN for motivating people to re-elect Trump

    2. P Le government doesn’t have to listen to a false narrative being spread to brain washed young people and in what way did George Floyd change the earth did it change when people lost there business to rioters and blm protester that they worked hard for or was it when people started to ask for police defunding witch is gonna worsen your so called police brutality because defunding police takes away funding for training or was it when people took over a small are of land from Seattle or was it when people march the streets blocking traffic witch is a criminal offenses or was it when police are getting fired over justified shootings

    3. @P Le no it wasn’t brave but i bet you wouldn’t have given George Floyd a sandwich when he was alive

    1. @Steven Lopez Rios I see now you one of those Geraldo Rivera type of guys
      You are probably not even amongst your own people

    2. @The One yeah that’s what I thought do you want to hear Black truth
      But can’t bring yourself to talk about white truth
      Get the f*** out of here

    1. Your moms house
      And if police didn’t shoot back, how many police WOULD HAVE BEEN shot? Don’t be an idiot.

  6. 🤦‍♂️ will you fools please stop with this!!!! Stop trying to incite riots and cause unrest.

    1. ? Showing the truth of an incident and proving that cops did not shoot a teenager is trying to incite riots?

      If police shooting someone can cause protests and police being shot can cause riots, that American society is truly screwed.

    1. Nobody is interested in focusing on “if’s”. The point is these officers acted in the professional and courageous manner in which they were trained. That is all people want and can ask for. May other cops learn from this…

    2. Like how the media is crucifying the Atlanta cops when an intoxicated, violent criminal resisted arrest, attacked them, punched one twice, stole their taser, ran, then turned to fire it at a cop’s face? 🤔 Then rioters set the Wendy’s on fire.

      Or how CNN gave more 10x screen time to their camera crew being harrassed than the murder of the fallen hero, David Dord?

      MSM only pushes their narrative. Disgusting.

    3. @D B The guy ran, hit them while resisting arrest, stole the taser, tried to shoot it and ran away. Taser is not a lethal weapon. Resisting arrest isn’t a death sentence. Protocol is for back up to make a perimeter and catch him as a team. Not to shoot him in back because he punched you.

    1. If the Elected Governor… And their state supports the take over…then let it go. When it comes to your state… THEN you can have say. Wait… Patients🇺🇸

    2. Fourth of July= lots of Patriots waving flags talking about their guns.

      Everyone else= gets off couch and go gets their freedom!!!

      Literally the rest of the world= we see you and we got you!!!

  7. These protests have spiraled out of control into riots and vigilante mob justice. It needs to end as innocent people are getting hurt.
