This is an outrage, im not saying that what Mr. Poss had done was not wrong on every level, but does that give the police an excuse to execute an incompacitated man laying on the ground that had already been shot. I hope those officers go to jail and the city educates their law enforcement on how to disable, not EXECUTE!

I also heard the man was down and the cops kept firing. I would like more info on how many cops shot him and how many times. Given the reputation of our police I think it would behoove them to use a little restraint in their use of force.

Sure glad I moved from Spokane, sounds like the police there are looking for any opportunity to kill someone and then have target practice on him. Must have been some young blood thirsty rookies.
