I guess. Seems like a silly thing to focus on after he just fired a round into the dude's head.A cops first course of action is to regain control of the weapon.. regardless if the accused is dead or alive.
Probably not. But when a guy is struggling and suddenly goes limp after you put a bullet in his head from point blank range, you don't really need to be a doctor to diagnose him.I don’t think it’s standard operating procedure to just assume someone is dead and the scene is secure while there is an unsecured weapon.
From a still frame of the video, it looks like the taser is a 7 CQ. I believe that particular taser only carries 2 shots.I assume the two tasers missed as the dead guy had his hands on the taser at the time.
I never said the guy wasn’t a legit threat.
I’m glad I was able to help you understand the situation.From a still frame of the video, it looks like the taser is a 7 CQ. I believe that particular taser only carries 2 shots.
If 2 shots were already fired, the cop had no reason to be all that worried about it. If the cop was in fear for his life, he could have just stood up and backed away. If the guy runs at you, take him out. If he runs away, waive good-bye and call it in on the radio. Again - it was a traffic stop over a license plate.
As so many of these go - both the victim and the cop have fault. One - STOP FUCKING RESISTING. And for the cop - de-escalation is a practice completely absent from just about all of these shootings.
Again - that's IF the taser was empty of usable rounds.
