    Yeah, it doesn;t look like he has anything in his hands when he runs away and CBS enlarged and slowed down the drop, and it's a taser.

    The department fired him today.

    Probably because he had warrants out, mostly for failing to pay child support. Nothing violent (that I remember).

    It's thanks their training. Cops are trained to say "he reached for my gun" and to put "performed CPR" on the police reports after they shoot people. Burger flippers in McDonald's have higher quality control standards.

    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.
    We do know....mostly for not paying for child support and nothing violent.

    Bear in mind civilian videos can be biased too, though, in what they show and what they don't, and can be edited.
    Despite court rulings, people are still getting arrested for recording on-duty cops

    When you see one of these stories, please remember that it is perfectly legal to record on-duty police in every state in the country. That includes states that require all parties to a conversation to consent in order for that conversation to be recorded. Those laws all also contain a provision that the non-consenting party has a reasonable expectation of privacy. So far, every court to rule on this issue has found that on-duty cops in public spaces have no expectation of privacy and that recording them is protected by the First Amendment.

    Not a ton of outrage when it is a white guy shot by a cop. or a Latino. And if the cop is black? Fuggedaboudit....




    But what do the headlines say in THIS case?

    "Video Shows Officer Michael Slager Shooting Unarmed Black Man In The Back In South Carolina"

    Cause it only matters when the victim is a black man.
    Not true. A homeless white guy here in New Mexico (James Boyd) was shot and killed by police officers and the cops were arrested for murder... because it was caught on video. Made national news and everything.
