    Body cams should be a nation wide law enforcement policy_

    Such transparency would result in far more professional policing_

    He'll either be a star attraction in some prison shank gallery for a decade_

    If you were after me with that chainsaw in your avitar, or even if you were a cop with a gun who was "fixen" to shoot me, I would run away also. The fact that the cop shot the guy 8 times in the back validates that the guy SHOULD have been running away (he just should have ran a lot faster).

    Brilliant. I should really try to be more creative.

    While I agree, did the officer indicate this in his own report? Of not, do you think your comment has anything to do with this case or were you just making a general statement?

    knowing few facts other than the video I will still give the cop the benefit of the doubt until I hear more.

    the man killed had an arrest warrant out for him. Don't we need to know if the warrant was for a violent crime(or worse) before we call the man innocent?

    don't jump to conclusions like some did on Ferguson only to end up with egg on their face.

    The video clearly shows you how much the police officer felt his life was in danger. If the dead man was that menacing that the cop thought his life was in danger do you think he would just casually walk over to the still alive man?

    No, if there is dangerous individual you would approach with caution and gun drawn.

    It is actually kind of creepy how methodical the police officer was.

    Yeeess, but does this not fit the scenarios that are probably not reported?

    I'm not assuming anything. I'm posing a question: black folks have been screamin abut this kind of thing and low and behold, one shows up on video. It's like proving a UFO.
