    Yeah, blame the victim.

    No, you are the one blaming the victim. The cop did *not* have to shoot the man to apprehend him and as the evidence indicates, he didnt have legal justification either.

    Wrong.
    His taking the taser made him a threat and allowed the Officer to shoot him.

    If you can bring yourself to believe that then you can believe anything justifies lethal response in any circumstance

    More info for this thread.


    Police report.
    Scroll up a little to see it.
    http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeednews...747052_5448312


    Which just confirms SMTA's claims were wrong as he was told



    Here it can be seen that the Officer is already reaching for his firearm prior to the taser being thrown by the suspect.

    You have evidence the guy took the officer's taser?

    His claim is evidence that he did.

    And look at the picture provided. It is not in the Officer's hands.
    The Officer is reaching downwards to grab his firearm.
    The only other place for the moving taser to then come from is the suspect, which corresponds with what the Officer said.

    Santana had already begun filming when the man began to run from the officer. “I remember the police had control of the situation, had control of Scott,” he said. “And Scott was trying just to get away from the Taser. You could hear the sound of the Taser.”

    “I believe he just wanted to get away from the Taser,” Santana added. “But like I said, [Scott] never used the Taser.” Link.
    The witness doesn't describe any time where he saw the suspect grab or use the taser. I have read previously that the policeman had discharged the taser but it hadn't worked. (He may not have gotten a clean shot)

    No flogger.
    He took the Officers weapon. That is the evidence. To not believe that, it has to be shown it isn't true which is impossible given the video evidence.
    Look at the provided screen capture.
    The only place the thrown taser could have come from is the suspect, as the Officer has a hold of the suspect with one hand and is reaching down for his firearm with the other and then as the video continues past that point the taser is thrown past the Officer.
