  1. I could see shooting him if he had a gun or a wrap and was threatening others. But not for being asleep at the wheel then running. As for burning the business: violence does not solve violence!!!!

  2. From this video. If anyone try to beat up me and my family then try to runaway like all you see in this video. I don't care who or what color ,I will shoot that person and believe me I will shoot them 100 times if it happens to my family. REMEMBER All LIVES MATTER.

  3. For his state of mind is disturbed ( drunk) Only option could have been, for the cop, when taser got pulled (notice no clear sight of the aim from the victime because he was running away) , so duck for cover (behind the car nearby), call for more back up , he couldnt have gone further for he was on foot and disoriented. Non equal response force was used. He was shoot in the back which mean the cops was clear of danger, it is still excessive force. Racism or unprofessionallism ?? You Judge !

  4. Yes the cop did twice, however prior to that he was behind a wheel of a car with the engine still running resisted arrest after being proved he was completely drunk, started a fight with the officers, grabbed a taser gun from them, then decided to not just run away but stop and aim the taser at a cop (if successful could have stunned the cop and grabbed his gun) but you forget these points

  5. He aked for it.He took the cops weapon first.You get shot on every country of the world for that.Bulgaria,Argentina,Japan,Egypt,Congo,Germany -everywhere.Cops carry a gun for a reason.If he cooporated he would have been alive

  6. This man was driving drunk. He didn’t pull over to sleep it off he passed out in his car on a fast food line. So if he would have hit a pole and killed himself or if he have driven into another car killing a family no one would have cared. Drunk driver kills family …. how sad. He would have gone to prison for that. But he was drunk driving, resisting arrest and grabbed a weapon from the cop and aimed and shot at the cop and now he is dead and it’s only the fault of the police?

  7. I do not put these officers in the same category as the officers who killed Floyd. As someone who has lost a family member to a drunk driver, they might’ve saved someone’s life. This dude str8 fought the cops and shot a taser at them. The fact they tried to use a taser should be acknowledged. No, he didn’t deserve to die, but I don’t think these officers come into this situation wanting to kill a black man.

  8. My dream is a world with police officer with none gun, world cruel, a man can't resist a prison, a man can't take the gun from policemen, a man can't fight , bad world bad world!

  9. MEDIA: There's a reason I nor you punch cops in the HEAD then take their stun gun and literally shoot them with it. HELLO, McFly! We'd be worried we'd get shot. Just saying

  10. The police officer was wrong to shoot the man in the back. A drunk man is trying to run away you don't shoot to kill. He could have shot at his leg, but 3 shots to the back is intended murder from a trained cop who i assume knows how to aim a gun. I'm not sure if this is a racial matter cause the drunk man was also in the wrong, but I believe how the cops handled the situation wasn't right. And to escalate things, people are probably thinking that maybe if it was a white guy, the cops aim would have changed.

  11. How is shooting someone in the back 3 times justified over a petty offense? A taser is not a weapon from a distance. If he is running away he is not a threat. Let him run he won't get far. Tow his car. Mail the warrant/ citation to his house. No due process, just death. Here we go again. Just another excuse to kill a Black person. Genocide,depopulation, annihilation which one? Choose one???

  12. Cannot believe how many americans think its ok to be shot in the back even though the cops had his car his ID his address they could of picked him up at home. But they chose to kill him shoot a drunk man in the back THE BACK

  13. Okay what's wrong with this picture this guy is beating the hell out of the copssteals their stun gun shoot it at them and then the cops return fire and another animal is taking off the streets what did the cop do wrongI guess the cops were just supposed to stand by and let people drink and drive kill innocent people while drunk behind the wheeland then the cops are just supposed to stand there and let people like this beat the hell out of them and do nothing about it every cop in the United States needs togo on strike for one week and let the American people find out just how much we need them I said to the officer good job unfortunately you are now in trouble for doing your job where is this madness going to end

  14. POLITICIANS said fire that cop even though he was punched in the HEAD, had taser taken and then was shot with the taser. If I was in charge of the UNION I'd say strike. What happens then? Who in their right mind would wanna be a cop right now?

  15. A machete wielding man can be taken into custody and the help he needed in europe but we have cops shooting people in the back and planting evidence, stealing money from citizens while they're budgets are already bloated enough to afford "cheap" military equipment and for…….back to this story. Cop better be charged, he shot someone in the back….why is there no humanity from law enforcement where is the SPIRIT of the law….call his wife….something….man…no compassion anymore.

  16. Just another piece of evidence. To show that Police officers n need better training. We need to hold them in the same regards we do Our military. If those offices In social management. .. BUT .. THAT WAS DUMB. Why don't you think about your kids? You know the environment, Why don't you think about your kids?

  17. Watch the video again in slow motion. He shoots the taser at the cop. With horrible aim obviously. It's easy for everyone to say "he used a non lethal weapon," but if you've been tased before, then you know it will stop you in your tracks, most times. In this situation you want to want to wait for the cop to be tased then have his gun taken and shot before anyone can stop the man committing a crime? Listen to yourselves! And go ahead wit the replies like usual about "whitey not understanding cuz he bathing in diamonds every day…" blah blah blah. Leave the race card in the trash and let's face this issue head on together and get back to the real cases of police brutality. Every time you hear the news, I want you to see how often they make this about race. The beginning of this video it was, "white police officer shoots black guy in the back."
    It's true, but not the full story.

  18. It's gonna start tipping in the other direction. The question is use of deadly force. No doubt this suspect was hella dangerous when he grabs your stun gun. This one isn't going to be as easy to summise. You will see cases of officers clearly in the wrong and being slapped on the wrist and you're gonna see instances of black folks rightfully being detained and resisting or doing something stupid like this. Both sides are doing it in an effort to say "SEE? I'm not the bad guy he is!". It's gonna get messy.

  19. I SEE BEING A POLICE OFFICER ..GIVES A PERSON A LEGAL REASON TO KILL…I WORLD JUST LIKE TO KNOW ????? WHY DOES THE WHITE RACE HATE BLACK PEOPLE ??? IT BAFFLES ME.. CANT THE WHITE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND .. THAT SLAVERY IS NOT LEGAL ANYMORE. JUST. GROW UP !!! ANGRY WHITE PEOPLE…!!

  20. If you think this guy didnt deserve to die YOU ARE A FN IDIOT … IF HE POINTED A STUN GUN AT ME AND TRIED HITTING ME… IM AIMING BETWEEN HIS FN EYES F HIS BACK

  21. this guy got what he deserved and anyone who this otherwise I hope they get in to a situation where they need police and the 911 caller says that no police a will to help you there sick of this crap.
