You can question the internal motivations of someone that was reported to be mentally challenged all you like, but you CANNOT question his actions. They are on video.


    The point is to show the natural defense reflex. never goes to the waistband they close in h doubles over to protect his stomach and puts his hands up in a defensive posture.

    that is whats on the video.

    Nope, shooting at the guy that turns towards you in an aggressive manner, is a split second decision. As Quanell X of the black panthers indicated in the previously linked cite:

    It all happened so fast," he added. "You don’t know what they could have in their hand.”

    That EXACTLY describes the Washington state shooting.



    dude was throwing rocks, no reports of guns, dude walked away and was shot at then ran away from the police and turned around in a defensive posture and was shot.

    Thats simply not true. I posted the sequence of events in pictures. He absolutely turns with hands towards cops, reaches into his waistband, points both hands at the cops, then responds to being shot.

    he never reaches into his waist band that's absurd.

    I watched it plenty, just watched it again, that is a classic defensive move, he never reached into the waist band.


    picture #2 does not show his hands in his wast it shows them rising to protect himself.

    It's going to have to be another wait and see. Does any other video footage surface, what do the officers involved have to say, what do witnesses (there seem to be plenty around) have to say. If all one could base a conclusion on was this 20 second clip, it seems like another senseless shooting death.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    The only fact that surely counts is that he didn't have a gun and the officers would have seen that far better from their far closer vantage . Make no mistake if this had been in any other developed country those officers would be up on murder charges on the basis of this clip and there would have been no ifs or buts about it
