    Officers were obviously in fear for their safety, acted in accordance with their training and within department guidelines, will be cleared and returned to active duty.
    Whatcha wanna bet?

    I`m not clear on something: Was he holding a gun when he came out of the house?

    I`m not sure, its not stated in the media but its implied that he was carrying a gun. I dont read cop-talk to well, but police statement says that he was a "threat" to the "community" and officers fired and a gun was found nearby. I did not see the deceased threatening anyone in the video, just a man walking outside a home for a second then boosh.

    @Squrlz,
    I believe they did say, once, in the report that "police say he was armed", but they really didn`t stress it, and the image is pretty fuzzy so you really can`t tell from the video.

    Time for martial law over there. Your cops have lost the plot.

    @ Llaa and Broizfam: Thanks, guys. Since it`s so important to understanding what occurred, I find it peculiar that more emphasis isn`t being placed in the reporting on whether or not he was holding a gun at the time he was shot.

    As you`ve said, it`s hard to judge from the video. He certainly doesn`t *look* menacing from that footage.

    If he *was* carrying a loaded gun when he stepped out, that lends credence to the "suicide by cop" theory. And I`d be interested in hearing what the officers at the scene had to say. But if he came out of that house without a gun in his hand? In that instance, I wouldn`t be able to find any way to defend what the officers did.

    Wait a second. He came out with a bullet proof vest on, carrying a gun?

    How does that not send a signal of aggression?

    Also, 9500 bitches!

    When the police become nothing more than execution squads there is no longer any reason to not shoot first when they knock on your door.

    @ AJ: Congratulations on 9,500 comments! You put me to shame.

    I just read one story that clearly stated the man exited the house holding a handgun and didn`t drop it when police told him to. In that kind of a standoff situation, that`s essentially suicidal and it lends a lot of credence to the "suicide by cop" theory.

    On the other paw: Couldn`t they have given the guy maybe four or five seconds to comply before releasing a hail of gunfire? They seemed to resort to deadly force awfully fast.

    And whatever happened to beanbag rounds? A beanbag round to this guy`s stomach or chest would`ve knocked him flat--maybe even knocked him unconscious--and probably would`ve allowed officers to rush him.

    [quote">Time for martial law over there. Your cops have lost the plot.[/quote">

    You could say the same of the UK then too. Or do you refuse to acknowledge all the time I`ve shown instances of UK police shooting people. Infact they weren`t even armed like...

    or

    McG, fair comment. Law n order is clearly a one-way street now.
