    The question remains, did the man die from bullet holes, or was the cause of death
    from falling after the non lethal impacts?
    Exactly...where is the autopsy? This didnt just happen.

    Best I can tell from the story and the video, this was murder. The charges seem appropriate and it looks clear enough that the "if he just did what the officers were commanding" defense is not strong enough in this case. I do not see how the case can be made that the intent of the officers was to deescalate that when they did plenty to ensure they shot someone.

    Here's a video of the incident if anyone is interested.

    We need an autopsy. They clearly didn't think the guy was dead since they cuffed him immediately and no one appeared to check for a pulse. Plus I didn't see any blood. But it does seem like an awful lot of heavily armed officers for what looks like a guy camping in the hills.

    What will the autopsy reveal about the shooting that isn't clearly on display in the video?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    It was like a feeding frenzy, they were all feeding off of each other's testosterone. Because none of them were actually afraid at all. They just fed off each other like they were at a keg party.

    Brief search revealed this: Autopsy: James Boyd was shot in the back and arms | New Mexico News - KOAT Home

    Edit: link to autopsy http://www.kob.com/kobtvimages/repos...oydautopsy.pdf

    He was shot twice - (bullets, not beanbags), in the back and upper arm, with the shot that entered his lower back the fatal one. The arm had to be amputated.

    Video looks like a bunch of Rambo wannabees who mistook a homeless, mentally ill person for a dangerous criminal they daydream about taking out.
