    I'm not dramitizing it. HP's cause more damage than FMJ's. That's why there is an agreement not to use them in war, but we use them on our own civilians. Just pointing it out.

    I think manslaughter should be what the officer is convicted of. The number of years he has to sit in jail is for others to decide, not me.

    Always wrong. All I can say is, Mr Dunn you have a new cell mate.

    Not me...He stopped, planted, and methodically took aim, then proceeded not to just shoot once, or twice, but 8 freakin' times....I think manslaughter should be for cases where you don't intend on killing someone, but it happens...This was murder.

    1st degree Manslaughter would be a gift for this cop actually - I'd be more apt to side with 2nd degree murder as shooting at someone 8 times in the back (in this case) was not premeditated (no evidence to show premeditation) but where death would be a distinct possibility.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Here's one for thought. The police officer does not appear to be angry at all. You would almost expect him to be so mad he would be swearing at the guy. Wouldn't surpize me if his attorneys demand a mental evaluation. His demeanor almost reminds me of robcop.

    I was thinking from the way the Dutch legal system looks at it, murder in our system is planned/premeditated and "doodslag" which to us is "manslaughter" where it is not a premeditated act of homicide.

    Because I do not think he premedidated this killing so for me it is manslaughter (homicide without prior premedidation).

    Can't "pre meditation" occur even seconds before the act?

    I find that notion to be completely absurd. But, it's your opinion. You seem very biased against cops so it would make sense that you'd feel that way.
