    No cop is trained to stand there and shoot people in the back as they flee.

    Well obviously, I am talking more about how they approach potential high risk situations and what are the protocols for their fire arms? A firearm should be last resort for a police officer but it appears like they recah for it far too quickly.

    But, no, there's a problem. There's a damn tape that shows that he is likely guilty of murder. Well, that ruins everything! Tough break, lefties. The cop actually did it.

    This is the price we pay for decades of looking at every single person in a uniform as a 'hero'. And because of this hero worshiping we have excused their actions to the point that for those decades there was no accountability for bad cops actions.

    Forget the race for a moment but that is a pathetic piece of video. I put it up there with the video of a nanny beating a little child. Of course people react and are disgusted but I really don't think many of us are "celebrating".
    I ABSOLUTELY believe people are celebrating it. Its always the SAME people that rush in to bathe in the blood when a black person is involved that will go dormant until the 'next' opportunity, ignoring black on black crimes, ignoring cop on white crimes, and ignoring cop on ANY race or gender acts of heroism.

    If so, this would indicate that the Officer (in his mind) was responding to an actual threat.

    That information and whether he moved the tazer after the fact and why, may be the difference between manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter and that of a murder conviction.
    I assume it was the tazer and accept there was some sort of struggle. However...the act of shooting him...even if they had just been in a life threatening struggle, dood was a good 12-15 feet away before he fired his first shot.

    Then there is the whole issue of dropping a "ham sandwich" on the dude.

    See EVERY "cop shoots black person thread" if you need help figuring it out. If you would like a reference, see every "cute pink baby chirruns killed by evil guns" thread.
