    It isn't egregious enough, in fact I think even pulling away from the taser is not enough to shoot someone in the back 8 times.

    Assuming that the stats released from a totalitarian society would be reliable, you're just saying that you value safety and authority more than you value liberty and life.
    That's totally alright for you to hold that opinion.

    However, that's not the American way.
    We have the Constitution.
    I may be wrong.

    And folks like yourself who find the Bill of Rights inconvenient for the State. You guys are also pushing for us to become more like NK.

    To each his own.
    I may be wrong.

    And yet you're the one espousing shooting people in the back....

    Also I would remind you it's in the Constitution....

    Amendment VIII - Excess Bail or Fines, Cruel and Unusual Punishment

    Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
    Pretty sure that death for running from a cop, without judge or jury falls under "cruel and unusual punishment"....

    I don't know who you are lumping in with him... or did you mean "authoritarian" singular?

    Lucky for you bad grammar is not an "on the spot" capital offense. Or IS it?

    Yeah the cop will probably get away with a lighter sentence but if the places were reversed the person would probably receive the death penalty. So unfair.

    Stop with the asininity Simon.

    This isn't about me.
    If you can refute what I present, do so, otherwise save it.

    So far, in accordance with the evidence he clearly didn't commit a murder and what he may or may not have believed at the moment does make a difference.

    Wrong. The SCOTUS clearly says otherwise.

    Wrong.
    It can easily be explained as already stated.

    So far though, all we have is those like you making unsupported assertions that is was a plant when there is nothing that supports that assertion.

    Clearly you know not of what you speaking.
    So let's show everybody you don't.

    In reference to the "policy" reply you quoted, what law are you speaking about?
