There was video of the incident.
The initial report was that car was backing up towards the police officers.
The police chief reviewed the video and saw that the car was moving away from police when the teenager was shot.
The video allowed the police chief to make his decision.
Now it is up to a Grand Jury.
You don't pull out a rifle and shoot people who are driving away from you.
I back the BLUE, but I am not going to support bad shootings by a police officer.
You are correct. All of that was clear in the NYT piece posted here last night.
The cop that did the shooting was not forthcoming with the truth and looks like he could be in big trouble in Dallas County.
From all indications, it’s a bad shoot, a very bad shoot and we have a 15 year old dead kid and devastated families.
