I have watched the following video several times looking for something that would make this shooting justified. I have searched to see where these individuals lives were in danger and hence the need for them to shoot this young man. I even took into consideration the fact that they might not have known he was mentally challenged and while others may have a different view point I see no reason why they officers could not have tased him. Why was there a need to shoot to kill?”

The young black man was wrong in stealing the drinks but was this a crime punishable by death? He kept saying shoot me shoot me but did this justify the police killing him even if they did not know he was mentally challenged. What was the point of handcuffing him after pumping him full of bullets. They claimed he had a knife so I have to asked the question are they not trained to take someone with a knife into custody without killing that person? Is not everyone entitled to a fair trial? Should the police be acting as judge, jury and executioner?

  1. They could have used a stun gun, instead of deadly force. The stun gun could have stopped him in his tracks. I am not sure why they don’t use stun guns, instead of taking a life. I can understand if the perpetrator is armed with a gun, then you have to use deadly force. However, if they have knives or unarmed, then use non-deadly force to subdue or stop them.
