Doesn't matter, he wasn't in any further danger.
I'm so tired of people taking up for cops who murder people because of some b.s. procedure that no one but cops know about that allows other people to
justify their murdering of civilians.
Cops nowadays are poorly trained and over indoctrinated. They are mostly under educated and have a lower iq.
If you really want to risk your life, show a cop you are smarter than them in any situation.
Your response, which is based on a lack of knowledge on the law, is also part of the issue. I know you want to blame all cops all the time for all
things, but it doesnt work that way. When people arent familiar with the law, as you are in this case, and you scream about some perceived injustice,
you arent showing the police, or anyone else for that matter, that you are intelligent.
The danger was not over, and the deputy was within the law (as the article reads) for the use of deadly force. If you don't care for that you are
certainly entitled to your opinion, however the US supreme Court doesn't agree with your opinion.
Start with Tennesse Vs. Gardner (US Supreme Court ruling).
Then check all rulings dealing with an Officers use of deadly force on a person who is fleeing.
Then check on how the 4th Amendment applies to the officers actions.
Brush up on Supreme Court rulings that cover a persons use of deadly force when protecting ones self or another party.
When you get around to it, let me know and ill give you some more info to research that will hopefully get you to understand how this all works, and
hopefully prevent you from going on a rant about a topic that you are not even close to being correct on.
If your just giving us your opininon, then kindly disregard my info and feel free to rant away.
