Probably wouldn't have fought both police officers on the ground refusing to be arrested....
Probably would have punched a cop in the face....
Probably wouldn't have stole a taser and took off running....
Probably wouldn't have turned and fired a taser at the cop trying to make an arrest.....

Yeah, that white guy would still be alive today.....

Only problem with your theory is that RB made all of those bad decisions on his own, his own actions got him killed, simple as that....
yeah I think a wealthy white guy could have made those bad decisions and got shot in the knee.
my big wonder is are the police today even trained to shoot but not to kill.
but yeah the cop may not be convicted of murder.
training training like your partner reminding you the suspect is no longer a threat.

the jury will take into consideration the short time to react and the chase "high" police get but something needs to change
why do we accept police killing anybody unless being shot at?

The police were being shot at by the suspect. He was using the taser he took from the officer. Had he hit the officer the suspect could have caused serious injury or death. He would have also had access to the officer's gun.

If the police officers had been trained and allowed to use a choke hold while wrestling the suspect on the ground there is a good chance they could have subdued him without injury or risk to the suspect or officers.

Do you even try to educate yourself on topics that you post about? First off, when an officer pulls his gun and fires, he is aiming for center mass, PERIOD! This isn't Hollywood where the officer is some sort of crack shooter capable of hitting a flea while riding horseback.

Anyone that has any experience shooting a handgun will tell you that hitting a target like someones knee from a distance of more than about 5 yds, is hard enough. Hitting that target while the target is running away and while you are also running, is almost impossible. That is why they are trained to hit center mass.

Also, officers don't shoot to slow down or disable a suspect. They shoot to defend themselves. And that is a last resort. They prefer to apprehend a suspect and arrest them, but that goes out the window when the suspect puts the officers life in danger.

I don't know why I keep responding to your completely uninformed and inane postings, but I thought this one needed addressed in case there are more stupid questions like this.

And I only read the first 2 sentences of your post. I couldn't bear to go any further and maintain my sanity.
