    It certainly looks that way, barring some evidence we haven't seen or heard.


    I've always been cautious about video since Rodney King, where the media repeatedly showed him getting beat down on every channel for months, but almost never showed the first part where he was beating up several cops and throwing them around like tenpins.

    No speculation required.
    He has prior complaints of excessive force and another SC cop just shot a black guy as well...?

    Complaints are accusations, the discuss seen by the chief, the quickness to charge, it doesn't seem likely that you can accurately jump to racism, though I know you want to.

    What other shooting? Do you have a link?

    Yes, I agree, they didn't show that. That doesn't change the fact that the police went beyond the necessary force to neutralise him, had King thrown them around like tenpins and then ran off, they'd have been wrong to shoot him in the back. If I confront a burglar in my home in the middle of the night, we have a struggle and he runs off out the back door and I shoot him in the back, I'm charged, just as this cop has been. Why do you think this cop has been charged with murder, and so quickly? Furthermore, knowing, KNOWING that he had done wrong, he retraced his steps retrieving the taser and then dropped it next to the guy to provide alibi!!

    Do you really think after the beatings the respective Chiefs took in Ferguson and NY in the media/public, this Chief would act objectively!??!!??! Really!??!!?! LOL. Unless it is absolutely obvious it was a justified shoot, the lesson learned is for Chiefs to cover their own a$$es. From now on the cop is guilty until proven innocent, just like in Ferguson.

    All that said, this cop is going to jail at least on a man-slaughter charge.
    The Gruber-crat is strong in this one!

    I never said he was a racist. And yes S.C. Officer Justin Craven Faces Felony Charge For Fatally Shooting Unarmed Black Man In His Driveway

    So fired, had to pay a million bucks and is now facing manslaughter charges? Not sure what you are trying to prove here.

    Just making a point. I asked at the opening if the video validated anything that black folks have been yelling about and apparently it does.

    White folks get shot by police too. again, this is a policing issue, not a race issue.

    Oh I agree there is plenty enough evidence to charge him with murder, and most likely convict him. It would be incredibly hard to justify shooting a fleeing unarmed man whose worst warrant was child support.


    Just sayin' in general, sometimes video doesn't tell the whole story.
