Honestly, what is bugging ME, personally, was the shot with intent to kill.
Why could the officer not give a warning shot?
And, WHY would the officer shoot the guy when his buddies were so close?

i love it how most ATS members blame the officers without even knowing the facts! i have two friends that serve as police officers and they are nice guys and respectful as most people in the south (or i wouldn't be friends with them).
sure there are bad cops out there but statiscally (sp) speaking they can't ALL be bad.
How about we give them the benefit of the doubt until we get more info, oh but wait,... the info will come from the msm so we can't rely on it hmmm a dilemma.
I guess i will just side on the police side this time and say the loser had it coming. attacking cops and resisting arrest means he was probably on some kind of drugs.
ANYTIME YOU ATTACK THE POLICE YOU MUST KNOW, IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND WHAT THE ULTIMATE FINALE COULD POSSIBLY BE.
but it is also fair to assume that you have no faith, what so ever, in our law enforcement?
I give them the benefit of the doubt because they have training that i do not.
don't believe what the media tells you, especially on stories like this
The media neglected to bring forth all the facts about that incident just recently ( i forget where) but the man was shot the day of his wedding
Disrespect for police officers in this manner (by "fighting the power") is a complete disrespect for a civilized society.
There is police brutality, this is true, but to use a few instances of brutality to justify overall disregard for authority is just plain ignorant.
