Another Police Killing, Disturbing Video, probably ‘Good Shooting’

Is this a weapon?

As the struggle continues, the man appears to resist and reach for an item in his waistband or pocket before getting up. Police later confirmed that Bender had a gun, which was found at the scene.

VT: This is our call on the shooting:

We would assume that reaching into a pocket would mean weapon. HOWEVER, this man was shot in the back and no weapon was visible. No evidence of a warning given, simply a frightened cop but was he frightened?

This cop took down, single handedly, a very large individual. Was there a reason for no backup?

Also, black San Bernadino officers say their department is a toxic/racist environment.

Thus, we accept we aren’t dealing with a pansy chickenshit cop, this is a real tough guy. We also think the suspect may have had a weapon, but was one recovered ON CAMERA WITHOUT CUTTING AWAY?

What we can say is that the officer needed to back up more, give 3 warnings while backing up and only then fire.

We also want to hear his explanation, for all of it, we want to know what he saw because video isn’t always the answer.

We also want to know why he didn’t wait for backup. We want that answer also and the officer may well have a good one.

Then we would like to know something about this officer.

 

VT: The hand in the pocket would mean ‘weapon’ to any of us.

    • If you are right, police either planted a gun, which we don’t see being picked up or are lying about it.

  1. Well, most might think the cop was a good wrestler by the first move, but once they are on the ground, it is quite clear he is not. Riding high on a big guy never works, better off controlling the ankles and knees. Either way, he’s an idiot or something else for grabbing a guy that big.
    The thing is, we stopped chasing fast bikes and cars, because it became obvious that just made the situation more dangerous. So, what was this cop doing , and what was this guy doing that was so dangerous ? Escalation , is not prevention, it is provocation.
