    "Wegner said that video was taken from a fisheye lens, likely distorting the appearance of the shooter’s actual height and weight. Because of that, investigators are mostly working off of the wounded deputy’s account."

    Perspective distortion. The further the object is away, the smaller it will appear, particularly if one object is larger, like the police cruiser, the human will look smaller. Extra space above and below the object also makes the object look shorter.

    Wow...didn’t know that. That has to add more difficulty. But, it should offer some info on his clothes. They’ll move mountains to find this scumbag though.

    Think of this. There is a decent chance Folt marched with the some of the people who attempted to block the entrance to the emergency department and chanted death to the police.

    Based on the height of the shooter (compared to the height of the squad car) and the noticeable short, slight bow legged running fashion of the suspect, I would guess he is either a young teen or more likely an adult with a mild form of dwarfism. I know it sounds crazy, but that is what I see.

    But lately it's Crazy Auntie Maxine and her call to violence. Though not in Compton where this abhorrent tragedy happened, their citizens are grossly affect by her. SUPPORT JOE COLLINS [US Navy Vet] to beat her ass out of office once and for all. I already gave the max to Joe, please give what you can. I am tired of the ongoing BS from her loud riotous mouth. https://joecollinsforcongress.com/

    Collins would be a home run win for the people of that district. Unfortunately, he has no chance with them

    Is that a surveillance camera? It almost looks like a phone video given the orientation and how shaky it is. Of course, it could be a phone video taken off a computer screen.

    As I mentioned, the video had a fisheye lens which distorts height and weight. The officer vehicle is larger, so the lens will distort the other object, the shooter, to appear shorter. They have at least some description from one of the victims. I'm sure if they had said it was a kid or a little person, the police would have conveyed that rather than giving caution to people seeing the video and assuming it was a child.

    I jumped over to cnn.com to see what they were saying about the story. Of course it was not near the top of the page. In the article, they wrote that Adam Schiff tweeted prayers for the deputies. The article also said protesters gathered at the hospital but it was unclear what they were protesting.
    Not a word about what the protesters were chanting. Unclear?? You cannot willfully close your eyes and then say something is unclear.


    The MSM’s coverage of these stories needs to be a bigger story. Joseph Goebbels would be proud. After all, he is the one who said if you tell a lie big enough and repeat it enough, it will eventually become fact.

    It couldn’t even be said

    They were mostly chanting nonmurderous things. ​

    Nick Saban said "All Lives Matter" yesterday in an interview with Game Day. I was curious to see if there would be pushback or not...

    I'm seriously thinking of applying for a concealed carry permit for the first time in my life. ...and that ain't Trump's fault.

    We need to hold the media accountable now for enabling this behavior over the past several months

    Yes
    I watch this and feel the rage build inside of me. I have so many questions. Have people always been this depraved and we are just now seeing it first-hand because of social media or is this depravity new? How can a human take such joy in someone potentially losing his or her life?

    Can you imagine the universal outrage if someone reacted this way over seeing a dog shot? Somehow I suspect there are more than just a few people out there hoping the deputies die.

    Remember, however, the news clips from 9/11 of the Palestinian women’s joy at the twin towers collapse.

    Hate over all, certainly over common sense and decency.

    There is quite a bit of distortion. The person in the video who may have witnessed the shooting is about 250 feet away. The shooter ran to the north (left side of picture).

    I sure do remember that. I also remember commentators, even some lefties saying how we need to look at those tapes in determining who our friends are in the future.

    How quickly some forget....

    It is interesting that the rescuing deputies drove the victims to St. Francis in Lynwood instead of MLK, which is very near the scene of the shooting. An ambulance would undoubtedly have gone to MLK. Those of us who worked many years in that area...(Ridge, for example)....understand their reasoning. If they survive, their fellow deputiess may have saved their lives.
