BTW -- The activist has avowed not to pay -- "He just got me started!"
Judge: Activist defamed officer
Shaheed Omar hopes to appeal the Roanoke Co. ruling that orders him to pay the officer $5,000.
I'll be watching to see where this goes.

Omar's comments at the city council meeting followed the December death of Raheim Alleyne, a 19-year-old suspect in a home invasion. Alleyne ran from officers, then opened fire as they closed in, a review by the Roanoke commonwealth's attorney determined. Hicks, who is white, shot and killed Alleyne, who was black. The commonwealth's attorney said the shooting was justified.
Sounds like the officer was completely within his scope of authority to use deadly force. From reading the article it is obvious to me who the racist is in this particular situation and I do not believe it is the police officer.

What he said was defimation unless he can prove he knew the officer was "waiting to shoot someone". Otherwise it is a statement intended to do harm to the officer personally and professionaly and is therefore defamation, not protected free speech.
Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image. It is usually, but not always, a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).

Mr. Omar opened his big mouth, and now he can open his wallet. He doesn't seem to care about a little thug with a gun committing crimes and shooting at police officers.
Mr. Omar is a poor role model for other male African-Americans. Instead of writing letters and opening his big mouth, he should try putting some energy into a recreation center for misguided youth.

IMO Mr. Omar does not know what he is talking about.

Seems like Mr. Omar should study some history - "Its better to be silent and though a fool than to speak out an remove all doubt" - Abe Lincoln.
