The suspect was unarmed.
He was holding his hands above his head according to witnesses.
He was covered in blood from a fall from a second story window.
But because he was "coming right at" that cop with his hands raised over his head, the cop started shooting.
What made him so afraid of a young man with his hands in the air and blood pouring off of him?
Yes, I'm well aware that he had attempted to taze him but I'm also aware that tazers don't always work as they are designed to work. Could have been
a faulty tazer, could have been a faulty operator of the tazer due to his paranoia. After all there were a whole load of witnesses standing by
watching this unfold. I guess in the policing world it is better to take a life than to risk "someone" getting hurt taking down an intoxicated,
unarmed college kid.
When I worked at our local hospital I saw a lot of cops, paramedics and firemen come through the ER with bumps and bruises they had gotten from
dealing with out-of-control drunk college kids. I never saw one of those college kids end up in morgue as a result of his interactions with a LEO.
What made this veteran cop so paranoid that his critical skills shut down and he just started blasting? Could it be some chemical he had ingested?
How will we ever know?
