    I find the standards of justice disturbing. In this case, because it can't be proven that this particular officer fired the fatal shot, he was acquitted despite unloading his clip at close range at two unarmed citizens. However, in the state of Ohio, you can be convicted of murder if anyone is killed during the commission of a felony. It's called the felony murder rule. Why was this not applicable in this case?

    Again, we different standards of justice. Thus the protests.Our system is broken.
    When was the last time you heard a car backfire?

    What am I missing here?

    link added
    Trial of Cleveland police officer Michael Brelo underway
    There were a total of 136 shots fired into the car and the judge aquitted the officer because he could not determine if said officer fired the fatal rounds.

    I'm glad the cop's okay. Those two in the car are dead because they ran from the cops.

    No, there;'s not telling who fired the fatal shots. That's what happened.

    They're already dead. Then the most you got is desecrating a corpse.

    You mean besides the fact that the other Officers were firing as well?

    The video is available showing him on the hood firing.
    You could find it and watch it.

    Leading to a reasonable belief that they were armed, not just with a deadly vehicle but with a gun as well.

    Because the Officer was acting in good faith in the performance of his duties, not acting with intent to commit a felony.

    This acquittal demonstrates no such thing.

    Running from the cops is not justification to be shot.

    shooting at cops is justification to be shot.
