    For the record, I would have shot the guy in the leg.

    We don't need to see a video to prove that he didn't shoot; that's obvious because the suspect has no bullet wounds.

    But the videos released by police depts. from their bodycams are not credible (or at least, complete) accounts of police encounters, because those depts. can easily edit those videos to yank out stuff that incriminates them. Cops have always hated video recordings of their actions, so one would have to be a total dork to believe that they would willingly allow footage of their activity to get w/out it being selectively censored.

    There was no independent cam/surveillance footage and I haven't heard of any witness accounts, so we don't know the remaining details.

    Problem is some judge all by the bad officers.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    You're quite ignorant of the situation. This cop

    1) had dashcam footage
    2) of the perp charging at him
    3) who was identified as a threat previously

    He was completely justified in shooting. As opposed to the stories of other individuals not charging police and in a few instances actually retreating from police but still getting shot. To try and excuse the previous protests as "police shot a guy and folks are angry about it" shows that you're ignoring many of the actual details of past events to fit your own narrative. That's intellectually lazy but I see your lean is "VERY CONSERVATIVE" so I'm not even surprised.

    We just don't know what happened, so it's silly to draw conclusions.
    I'm fine with what I saw tbh.

    That's true. This cop SHOULD have shot the perp. I think in private he'll get dressed down for this.

    He was already told that.

    Should have shot him? Pffft, ever been in a shoot dont shoot situation? Probably not. So your opinion is worthless.
