    The officer felt justified in his actions because he didn't have all the information.

    He didn't know he was being recorded.

    Maybe. But that certainly might be a motive.

    I don't think so. I think that would still qualify as in the moment. If the argument was that this was premeditated...it wasn't. Unless this officer knew he was going to be stopping this guy at this time and had made the decision to kill him. Good luck proving that.

    HP would would stop the target faster. They also would reduce over penetration. We SHOULD allow them in war. Especially in places where targets won't have armor. FMJs will just go right through. HP rounds are the only logical defensive round. They reduce risk to bystanders.

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

    SC Judicial Department

    Murder is the killing of a person with malice aforethought, either express or implied. Id. With the exception of the death of the victim, each and every element of murder must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in order for a jury to convict a defendant of ABIK. Id.
    “Malice aforethought” is defined as “the requisite mental state for common-law murder” and it utilizes four possible mental states to encompass both specific and general intent to commit the crime. Black’s Law Dictionary 969 (7th ed. 1999). These four possibilities are intent to kill, intent to inflict grievous bodily harm, extremely reckless indifference to the value of human life (abandoned and malignant heart), and intent to commit a felony (felony murder rule).[3] Id. “General intent” is defined as “the state of mind required for the commission of certain common law crimes not requiring specific intent” and it “usually takes the form of recklessness . . . or negligence.” Black’s Law Dictionary 813 (7th ed. 1999).
    Clearly, the above definitions illustrate that malice aforethought encompasses both the specific and general intent to commit murder. As ABIK encompasses each of the required elements of murder except for the death of the victim, it is axiomatic that malice aforethought be the mental state required to commit ABIK. Further, the South Carolina Supreme Court has stated “the required mental state for ABIK, like murder, is malice aforethought.” State v. Fennell, 340 S.C. 266, 275, 531 S.E.2d 512, 517 (2000).
    I may be wrong.

    What if he thought he was a danger because he was a black man running loose?

    HPs reduce the possibility of over-penetration, thereby reducing risk to bystanders.

    well no ****. But on the same thought, who disproportionately commits the crimes? you would have to factor all of that in to get an accurate idea to prove anything.

    You would also have to figure out who is disproportionately in poverty, under-eductated, and come from broken homes.
