sucky situation for both cops and the victim.

The whole "the guy put at risk a cop's life by lowering his arms" doesn't fly IMO, as they are a good distance away from the "suspect" and I imagine sheilding themselves behind an obstacle...absolutely no excuse to shoot the poor guy.

Fukking cops have itchy trigger happy fingers, SMH

And again, the cop will get off with hardly a slap on the wrist...giving cops the green light to keep shooting first and asking questions later.

apparently in military warzones US soldiers have rules of engagement that state they cant fire on anybody that hasnt fired on them and they go into all types of foriegn buildings with people in em. Crazxy how American police have absolutely no rules of engagement... can just execute citizens at will, even dumb enough to do it from an out of state prank call. And of course there will be no punishment for this murder.
