    Also his claim of providing cpr when no such thing happened, won't help him either.

    Ah, right again, lol.


    Yeah, because a guy pulled over for a traffic violation, running away from you, with or without a taser, is an immediate lethal threat warranting lethal force.

    but a cop is not judge, jury, and executioner. Their job is to apprehend the suspect to be held for due process of law. Lethal force is only justified when a direct physical threat is present to the officer or to a bystander.

    Murder 2. Clearly. With additional charges of tampering with a crime scene and providing false statements, obstruction of justice, etc, likely.

    wow

    stop collecting the evidence

    stop ascertaining what happened

    the case is closed and done

    deuce is the judge/jury/and prosecutor in this one.....

    the charge is murder II, and additional charges will be pending

    why arent you in S carolina heading this up.....save the state and country thousands if not millions of dollars

    you need to change your name and avatar also.....

    from now on your new name is "Kreskin"

    So, I guess all the cop haters, and anarchist can now proceed to gather their lynch mobs, and Sharpton, and Jackson can make more money with lies and ginned up outrage.

    Sad really.
    You know, from a couple of other posts, and yours, it seems there may be a pattern....not racially motivated but fear motivated or motivated by laziness. This cop was alone. It seems the only other way to apprehend this guy would have been to run him down and physically subdue him. It was a big guy. Are cops today just not bothering to do their jobs? Not trained properly to restrain and subdue, if necessary, a fleeing suspect? Yes, it does put them in harms way, yes, they are very possibly going to take some punishment.

    Is this, or is it not, part of their job? (No sarcasm, honest question)

    And since he had the guy's car, he could have just waited and cops could have gotten him at his home. He as pulled over for a traffic infraction so it's not like he was a violent criminal on the run (unless the cop got such info when..if...he ran his plates)

    With this video and the 3 major lies this cop told? He'd be very smart if he takes a plea, and gets put into solitary for 5-7 years. when he gets out everyone will have forgot about it, and he'll still have some of his life to live.. But if he fights it, and it goes to trail, that will piss people off, on both sides. Then he gets convicted and gets a 15-25 year sentence his life is going to be even more of a hell.

    I noticed that, as well. Sociopath maybe?

    If you watch the cop while he's shooting, and listen to the smoothness of the shots....he's very deliberate and steady. I think it's unlikely he was hit by taser darts.
