    Maybe the guy doesn't have all of his ducks in a row. I think that's far more likely than suggesting that it was an accident considering the circumstances.

    So what? It doesn't excuse it or make it necessary. There was absolutely no reason for it considering that the guy was subdued and unarmed.

    Seriously, some of you guys actually defending this cop should consider applying to be on his legal team for the inevitable litigation. You guys keep coming up with reasons and excuses like nobody's business.

    The weapon won't discharge accidentally UNLESS the finger pulls the trigger.

    Even if you drop it, it won't 'go off.'

    I agree, does not mean that this is not how many are trained.


    Like I said, I wouldn't as you lose your strong side hand and introduce a deadly weapon into the mix.....

    As for Tasers, I think many police rely too heavily on them today. It is a great tool, but this should not replace other policing methods.



    He made a huge mistake, his tools did not help him.

    Yes they do. But cops are supposed to be trained to know when and how to use them. Out of all the episodes of cops and all the times they do pulls gun, not once has there ever been an accident.

    I think most people are making alot of assumptions here, we will never know for sure if it was an actual accident or not, but that's the guys story and he is sticking to it. No matter what, he did the crime and he should do the time.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    He MAY have intended to pull a Tazer or cuffs but his focus drifted at just the wrong moment and then, I suspect, his adrenaline fueled brain functions went on "auto-pilot."

    It just seems highly unlikely to me that this was an accident. I think it's obvious that he wasn't fully thinking it through when he did it, but there's no doubt in my mind that he did it on purpose.

    Why would you shoot a subdued man?

    Why in front of other officers and hundreds of BART train witnesses with cell phone cameras?

    It makes no sense for him to have done it intentionally.

    But he will pay. His life is ruined.
    Uh...what? I saw the video....... it clearly shows him shooting a man in front of officers, BART witnesses, etc. Have you not seen it? All of us are well aware of the facts.

    But hey, I'll pose a question to you. Do you think that family cares WHY he did it?
    The moron cop lost his head or was stupidly careless, however, their son and father is DEAD, and this moron will have a desk job somewhere in a few years.

    So you go ahead and defend this fathead all you want.

    We are trying to explain what happened, not justify it.
