Looking at the video, I think this was, at best, an unwarranted use of force. The officer wasn't in danger of being hit - all he had to do was step back away from the vehicle. If a civilian had done this s/he'd be pilloried - how is it the police get off with no punishment?(Other than knowing they killed somsone who didn't need killing?) Yes, the criminal was in the car, and so were guns, but he was heading for a ditch & maybe poles so couldn't go far.

You can't tell by looking at a video, fool. You and John Q should start your own cop hater club.
