Clearly overuse of force long before the fatal shot. Peace officers are supposedly trained to disarm the threat, not shoot to kill as the military are trained to do. Once a charge is lodged, even if manslaughter, it should somewhat appease the protesters.

6’4” and 300 lbs coming at me, I would have taken the shot too. Actually if I find anyone on my property they will be looking at my 357.

You sound like your typical pea brained civil servant. Too dumb to pay attention in school, go be a mailman, firefighter or cop.

Civil servant = lowest common denominator

Your writing style indicates that you've got a fifth grade education. Are you a firefighter, too?

Maybe the first shot. What about the other 5? And the fatal shot to the top of the head as he was nearly on the ground?

You're aware that the police don't shoot to wound, right? They shoot to kill. That's the sole purpose of a gun. You can't be this stupid.

IDK you must be an EBT receiving low life. Cops don't shoot to warn, they shoot to kill the scum that they're aiming at. Now go put another Elizabeth Warren bumper sticker on your Prius.

If a 6'4" 300 lb. thug was coming at you i'm sure you would unload everything you have to make sure he is dead.

I know I would. Obviously you are not military. Military and police, it is either him or me. There is no in-between.

Keep playing with your Barbie dolls.

The Anti-Moron software on my PC went crazy when I started to read your post. I understand what you are trying to say, even though you obviously don't
That post is written by something so confused, it doesn't know whether to scratch its watch or wind its ass.
Civil Servant ,.. It is better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Nope. That's the whole point. Police are not military and are NOT trained to kill. This is either a reactive behavior and/or promoted by fear due to insufficient training and a deficit in the culture. BTW, I am black, ex-military, a consultant in the field and I still get pulled over for driving while black. Yes, even in a blue state.

Not sure where you have been but police and military are now trained to neutralize the enemy as soon as possible. They have learned from past situations the longer you wait and hesitate the outcome will most likely be a fatal one for military and police personnel.

You should take an “active shooter” course to update your nonsense thinking.
