    But again I ask, would it matter if Mr. Scott took the officers tazer, or even his gun? Unless he got control of the firearm and tried to shoot the officer with it then dropped it and ran, then would there be any justification for shooting Mr. Scott? I don't have to have seen the report filed to know nothing like this occured, because we know that if Mr. Scott had taken the actions above the police department wouldn't have fired him.

    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.
    How exactly did Ferguson PD make Darren Wilson appear guilty?

    All that said, this cop is going to jail at least on a man-slaughter charge.
    Hope its 2nd degree murder but I agree, it will probably be manslaughter.

    Thank God for that video though. Without it he probably would have been acquitted (if charges were ever brought against him).

    Oh I don't know about that

    The autopsy in this case would have shown that he actually was shot in the back 8 times.

    Does not justify what I saw on that video.
    What you think saw and reality are two separate things.

    First of all, you obviously do not know my position on this shooting.
    Secondly, there are many variables that could justify shooting someone in the back as they are fleeing.
    The most obvious reason being that they are a threat, as upheld by SCOTUS.

    Anyone who tried to perform CPR after that scene is ****ing disturbing, unless of course there's a specific requirement that someone try even if the person is obviously dead.
    Irrelevant.
    While you may want it to be, it isn't their job.
    Furthermore, aid was being given at the end of the video we were able to see. Nor do you know the point in time which the guy stopped breathing.
    That does not mean that CPR was not later performed, which is not disturbing in the least.

    Or beaten to death, like in the case of Kelly Thomas.


    again, this is a policing issue, not a race issue.
    Racism is a major problem within our police departments.

    Which is why I think there would have been an investigation. But, in the end, by planting the taser next to the body he could argue the man was armed and therefore a threat. I could definitely see a jury acquitting him if it got as far as a trial.

    Our Congressional reps need to worry about far more pressing issues, like Guam capsizing. Then they don't say stupid things.
