in addition, if you watch the ENTIRE video, you will see the man raise his hand with the razor (you can get a quick glimpse of it at it passes the officer;s shoulder blocking the camera) threatening the cop with the gun. The cop fires, the man drops, and the razor is dropped from his hand.
Suicide by cop, plain and simple. The only fault is his own in this instance from what I saw.
But, don't let the facts get in the way of your rantings.

I agree with this! There is no need to shoot a man armed only with a knife! I thought the police were supposed to be TRAINED IN DEFENCE AGAINST KNIVES!? Is the use of a taser justified? Definitely. Is the use of several shots? Definitely not in my book. Are the police getting dumber nowadays or just more psychopathic?
BTW eathling42 where has your DP been taken? I could stare at that all day, such a calming and beautiful picture!
