    It does not matter that the maybe even slapped the officer and then ran away, he still was an unarmed man who was running away and not a threat to anybody at all.

    Sorry but there is no conceivable action that this 50 year old man could have done after being stopped with a broken tail light to take your gun out and shoot an unarmed man 8 times in the back.

    There is no defense for something that has no legal, moral or acceptable excuse/reason or defense. Gunning down an unarmed, non threatening suspect is not legal.
    That is an interesting caveat that you chose to include, implying that being armed (alone?) makes someone threatening. Does that mean that it is OK (legal according to you) to shoot an armed fleeing suspect in the back?

    And now you know why many police don't want to be recorded on audio and visual.

    Cops shouldn't be entitled to the same rights as people.
    Really? Should they have more or less rights than 'people' do?

    Well shooting unarmed petty felons running away from them shouldnt be one right they should have. Would the police forces of any other developed nation on earth have responded to incidents such as this with this level of grossly disproportionate force I wonder ?

    Because cops aren't people.

    As it should have. He will still end up with an attorney who will try to defend him, but I can't come up with anything in my mind that would make me as a juror think he had any reason to do what he did. This is about as clear cut as case as can be. Maybe it won't end up as Murder 1, maybe he'll plea out (that's the best option for him IMO), but he will not walk away from this.

    You seem to be terribly confused. This was not a matter of police rights or even SC police policy; it was considered not only grounds for the officer's immediate termination but for criminal murder charges.

    They would know that the man was shot in the back from over twenty feet. They would know that they man was running away and the cop would have been arrested by now to mitigate the riots that would have been ongoing at this point.

    Clearly the professional protesters and rioters don't care about the dead , dead beat dad who has a warrant for not paying child support. Leaving Black kids without supportive fathers is the worse crime in the Black community but now this stupid cop will leave his soon to be born child without a father.

    Attacking a policeman makes you dangerous to the public but not enough to be shot in the back when the cop has the guy's car. Attacking a policeman while being armed makes you more dangerous and somewhat ot t a threat to the cop even as the man runs away but this guy dropped the tazer so he wasn't much of a threat other than being unsupportive of his kids.

    Cops have the same rights but more responsibility.

    I can't think of anything that might justify this shooting. I can't imagine what this cop was thinking and have to assume that he wasn't thinking. maybe he is the cop that the Black race hustles have been telling us about and you can bet that all cops will be painted with the same shade of stupid that this cop has shown.

    I expect 0bama to say "I told you so!!!" today or tomorrow.

    If it wasn't as clear as day on video....we would have the same ones on here defending the cop and saying the black man obviously did something that he deserved to be killed. Even so...it would not surprise me in the least for a jury to find this cop not guilty. Jurors bend over backwards to find any way not to convict a cop....even when the video is a plain as day.
