Man I could almost believe the cop panicked when dude turned a little bit and this wasn't entirely malicious, but the continued shots were completely absurd. So was essentially bumrushing the guy.

First bombshell: chief just said there's no audio, and there's supposed to be. He isn't saying why there isn't in this instance, only that there should have been.

I don't want to get flamed - but why is this being made out to be murder? The teen had clearly been running from the cops, they got him corralled in the center of the main street, he was walking fast, not quite a jog, with both arms down by his side, the other unit pulled in front of him and then the exchange of gun fire, it seemed to me he was shot while still upright, you can see the bullets striking the pavement creating a small cloud of dust. Then he went down, a couple more shots. The cop then came over and kicked something away from him. The victim never raised his hands and if he was holding something, especially after resisting arrest already, aren't the police at least somewhat justified in their actions? This is not blatant like some of the other police shootings of unarmed citizens.

Did he have something in his hand??? It looked like after he was shot repeatedly even though he was already on the ground (typical pigs), that they kicked something out of his hand???

Watch his right hand, you will see him pull it out and the blade shine a few times after the car pulls up.
