Newly released dashcam footage shows a Fort Worth police officer shooting a man in the back as he walked away. The victim was left a paraplegic, and whether the shooting was justified is up for debate.

Yeah, the title sounds bad - however, I think this is a case of a justified shooting.
The police officers, an off-duty Fort Worth officer and an off-duty Tarrant County sheriff’s deputy, were responding to a report of an armed robbery at a gas station in the area on July 27, 2016.

So no robbery and a man shot.
Of course, it is justified. It is always justified.

While I'm all against cops shooting as a first and only resort, a tranq has to be properly managed vs things like body weight or you could end up killing whatever you're shooting at.
If you shoot me with a tranq meant for a bear I'm going to die. Do it with one meant for a bunny and not much is going to happen.
