      Encounters like this immediately become evidence. As such it is my understanding that they become confidential until after the case is resolved. After that you’d probably have to go down to the police station to request a copy, and given the sensitive nature of it I don’t know how exactly you’d go about doing that.

      What an idiotic statement. Why should he/she have to take that chance? You think most officers like to shoot? Once it happens, the officer is held under a microscope, the family and officer have to deal with the media, people like you, and the mentally relive the horrible experience. Why, why,why does society think officers like to shoot?! I just dont get it.

    It’s easeier to shoot than tase. There are to many trigger happy cops out there. Do a story on the number of cop shooting when they could have used their tases

    Oh Robert, such a an awful statement. An officer should get to go home. You have no idea what happened. If the video justifies the shooting will we hear from you again?
