I thought the same thing the first time I saw it. The cop noticed the guy, pulled his gun, aimed, and fired all within the 27th second of the video. Honestly, it's hard for me to click my mouse as quick as he had his gun already aimed.

Every police officer in america should have a body camera on them at all times. This is such a no-brainer.

I don't understand. The suspect did everything right. He exited the vehicle with what looks like an assault rifle. What should he have done? Just sat there in his vehicle?

oobaka Play the video at 1/4 speed. You'll see that the suspect had the rifle raised and was planning to hit the officer in the head with the rifle's stock. When he saw the officer had his gun drawn, he then threw the rifle at the officer. From the get-go, the suspect was attacking the officer.

holygod As uncommon as common sense is and as common as stupidity is, yeah, I assumed he was just stupid not being sarcastic.  I don't know oobaka, I don't know you and none of you know me.  How the fuck am I supposed to tell the difference between stupid and sarcasm in your text?  Get over yourself.

whosaidwhat was supporting what waldo863 said not oobaka's sarcastic comment. That is why this comment is indented further than Waldo's and why waldo863's tag is in his comment.
