    The law says police CAN shoot unarmed fleeing suspects but only if they represent a clear and present danger to society. Example would be a serial rapist, murderer or someone that if they were able to escape there is a reasonable expectation that they could cause someone else harm.

    That is clearly not the case in this instance though.

    Us law permits shooting a fleeing suspect: "Where the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a threat of serious physical harm, either to the officer or to others, it is not constitutionally unreasonable to prevent escape by using deadly force."

    Based on the video alone, I don't think the officer will be able to state that the suspect posed a serious threat to himself or others.

    Well, don't run. Pretty simple. You have warrants, man up and comply.

    And if you don't expect to be executed by the judge, jury and executioner that is the police officer....

    Not shooting unarmed seniors in the back is also a fairly straightforward matter.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    That in itself is disturbing. They did no such thing. Disgraceful.
    Crazy how immediate precautions were taken to ensure the cop's innocence could be maintained though.

    So, you want vigilante justice, is that it?

    Forget the courts. Forget innocent until proven guilty. Just let the masses decide and lynch him?

    I'll pass on that thanks.
