    One has to wonder about the "threat" that a taser that has already been shot poses to anyone...cops or public. "Attempted tasering?" seems like it's been expended. Cop is dead in the water on this....esp. since, if it was still able to do harm, why would he take it and place it next to a suspect still alive where he could grab it? *snicker* will be fun to see that maneuver explained within department policy, rather than being secured safely.

    The posted apologetic acrobatics are amusing tho. Just like those where they tried to justify 2 LEs shooting the wrong, unarmed man, in his bed, without identifying him, after they already had the suspect they had a warrant for, and shot him 16 times...and still didnt manage to kill him.

    Still unable to focus on the actual topic, huh? How sad.
    What is even more sad is you know what you are doing is wrong yet continue to do it.

    This is again you not paying attention to the provided information and are even assuming it was a taser he threw down.

    Seems expended? iLOL

    The taser has two ways of being used.
    By cartridge or by it's prongs.
    Once the cartridge is expended, it can be reloaded with the spare cartridge in the handle or it's prongs can be used.

    If you don't get the drift, the prongs are still there and can be used.


    It is funny how you read these replies anyways, ignore what has been said, and continue to present false bs that has already been dispelled.
    It must be purposeful.

    Again; When something is legal it is not an excuse.
    Which is not apologetic acrobatics. Funny that you think it is.

    A man who's been shot in the back and killed is no threat to anyone.

    And presently, that will depend on a Grand Jury to decide.

    But way to deflect from your previous absurd comment.
    Don't you think the video and eyewitness testimony provides the grand jury with enough evidence to indict?

    How so?

    Maybe you are missing it? The video and evidence shows he is reacting to a significant threat which is a legal reaction and therefore shouldn't be charged.

    The only reason he may be charged is if incomplete evidence is presented to the GJ.

    The video shows him shooting a fleeing suspect in the back. At the time the weapon was fired, what significant threat was Scott?

    So what you are saying is that you have not paid attention to what has been presented in this thread?

    As already presented (see below), we have a video of an Officer who was cleared of shooting a fleeing suspect in the back even after the suspect had tossed his weapon.
    In that case the Officer knew he tossed it.
    This is in accordance with the being able to shoot a fleeing suspect who is a significant threat, which is allowed under the ruling SCOTUS made.
    You continue to shoot until the threat is eliminated. His tossing the weapon didn't automatically make him a non-threat, his ceasing to move did.

    In this case the Officer was in the process of drawing his weapon to fire (which is part of the process of firing) prior to the suspect tossing the weapon and beginning to flee.
    He is already in the process, and you fire until the threat is eliminated.

    But then we have the possibility that the Officer did not see the suspect toss the weapon. If he did not see him toss it, he is then definitely acting under a reasonable assumption that the suspect is still an actual threat.

    In either scenario, his actions were in accordance with the law.

    I guess we'll just have to see what the grand jury decides. I think Slager will be indicted.
