OP, for the purposes of maintaining your own credibility here, perhaps you should post your news from a source who is not completely anti police.
The headline of the article is completely false, and this is evidenced even within the lines of the source's biased article. The suspect was being
investigated for some bus fare incident and he then chose to FLEE. The police say he fired a gun at them and they found a casing. Later, they found
a gun. Police do not start their day off supplying themselves with shell casings to plant just in case they need to plant evidence at a crime scene
in the course of their shift.
Secondly, did you people see the environment the police were in? They were NOT in a police-friendly neighborhood, and after the shooting, they found
themselves being approached by an angry crowd, putting them in a very dangerous situation. I'm sure an ambulance was enroute immediately after the
shooting, but, quite frankly, they did not know if the suspect was still in possession of his gun or not and he was still moving and lifting his head
up, even after being shot. In addition to that, there is an angry bunch of witnesses moving in on the cops and they had to keep an eye on them for
obvious reasons concerning their own safety.
We didn't see the beginning of this incident. We don't know why the guy chose to run (perhaps he was wanted for another crime). We don't know if
he shot at police, but, frankly, I tend to believe he did since they shot back and there has been evidence found that suggests this is true.
If police shoot a guy in an area that is not police-friendly, it is common that very few, if any, witnesses will say anything that supports the
statements of the police. That's the truth. It's the way things are. To take these the witnesses' statements as fact based on this video and the
evidence is not being prudent.
