I was waiting for this to pop up here. I would have unloaded my firearm too (..at that distance, it's reasonable to believe that the driver reached for a rifle/shotgun). It's extremely unfortunate that the individual was shot, but he could have avoided this situation by staying in his vehicle.

It's drilled and drilled and drilled and drilled and drilled and drilled into officers minds that every round, long and pointy object is a gun. Every gun is going to kill them, and every person is a criminal.

It's really the crux of the problem of law enforcement.
They are brainwashed to treat every situation as hostile and every person as dangerous. They are brainwashed to believe that their life and their safety is more important than any other person, any law any right.

What you see in the video is a good example of why law enforcement is a broken system.

What would happen to you or me if we were allowed to go around shooting anyone we wanted without first confirming it a viable threat?
Hell.... even if we confirm a positive threat... we still have a VERY good chance of being locked up for life.

Cops can go around shooting anyone they want, with no justification and face no penalty.....

Broken system

Beck has declined to comment on what action the department will take against the eight cops found to have violated LAPD policies, but his options include ordering reprimands, suspensions or even the termination of those officers' jobs.
wow... so serious
Punishment ranging from harsh "reprimands" and up to.... "termination" so harsh

Seen way too many videos about incorrect addresses where people won't open the door and the cops say "Just open the door please, we will not hurt you" and then bust in and tackle them because they are "Trained to expect the worst behind the door, no matter what."

You're right.... let's show our support for officers shooting old men with canes and finding a way to justify it
This officer is a hero

I'm sure there are a lot of good cops but a few are those dirty ones that down to get you just for the heck of it. Two days ago, my friend's car (subi WRX) got a ticket for no front license plate while he was parked inside a shopping mall lot. Who the **** drives around a mall parking lot writing tickets to cars with no front plate? My friend cursed that one day that cop will see a bullet to his head! I don't blame him.

Why did the man hop out of the car?







Tell me, when you get pulled over do you immediately hop out of your car?


Nope? Maybe you should try it.

Hobbled out
He's like 80 years old. I'll tell you why he got out.
He lived during an age in time where cops would great a person on the side of the road during a stop and TALK to them.
A time when it was not uncommon or in any sense unusual for two grown men to engage in a conversation.
A time where you didn't have to fear getting killed over a speeding ticket.
A time when people knew the simple sight of a gun, didn't mean violence
Where you were not a subject and treated like a terrorist for sneezing in front of an officer.
A time when officers weren't trained to kill anything that moved

That is why (plus he needed his cane to walk)
I don't think this officer is evil or corrupt. I do know he is a product of his training. There is the problem
When the only tool you have is a hammer... EVERYTHING starts to look like a nail

Yes he lived during THAT time, but that time is not now. I'm sure he's been stopped sometime in the last 25 years, and people don't get out of their cars to great the police anymore. He had no reason to get out of the car unless the officer asked him to get out of the car. The guy got out of his car with a cane, which from that distance and at night could easily look like a shotgun/rifle.

I agree with both sides. I do wonder why he got out of his car, but I never heard the officer tell him to get back in (I understand it all happened fairly quick).

Seems the officer was far too quick to shoot, but i'm no expert.

That cop was irrantional in his shooting but that is why when i get pulled over. I roll down windows. I turn on dome lights. Turn engine off and put hands on steering wheel.

Cops are suspicious of everybody...it is the nature of their job. I understand that and so i act in ways that tells them i mean no harm.

Getting out of the car and reaching into the back of the truck is stupid however you look at it. Even then though...i think the cop should have used a little more rationale before shooting him up.
