And they've released why they think he ran....behind on child support for the most part. But the cop tried to tase him (not sure if successful). The general population may indeed be alot more fearful of cops these days. People do panic and run, esp. if attacked (taser). And cops encounter more and more mentally ill people these days.
They dont seem to be trained to deal with these situations....or willing to use that training properly.
When it comes to these mentally ill people...their families are dropping civil suits on police depts left and right these days. I dont agree that that is justified but if anything, that should provide more motivation for police depts to do a better job training their personnel. (case in point is the Feb incident in Pasco, WA where the cops shot a mentally ill man throwing rocks at passing cars and possibly, them.)

How do we know the dead guy wasn't a runaway slave?

The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
I will leave it to the courts to decide.
And I will remind people that it is innocent until proven guilty.
