    This is bad. We don't see what led up to this, but the murder charges seem appropriate in this case, as the choice of no charges seems appropriate in the cases involving Trayvon and Michael. 

    Let's understand something: this is an exception, aberration, freak occurrence. 

    Let's understand something else: when news is reported emphasizing race as a motivating factor, the point is to incite racial tension and encourage civil disobedience via riots, arson, looting, and violence that results in more racial tension.

    It happens. We have bad cops too. Yes, this is a bad one and he's not getting off. He's been charged with murder as he should be.

    Colleen Why would he have thought he could get away with this,8 bullets into the back of an unarmed man..that looks bad without video,and why did the guy run,???

    Run or not. He should have just been shot with a blow gun that had tranquilizers in it. That's what vets do that take care of large wildlife animals outdoors.

    @MCM,would not have mattered ,this guy wanted to kill somebody,,at this stage we do not know if it was racial or not..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<

    mcm, they do not carry blow guns. Do not say they should. We have hundreds of thousands of cops throughout this nation. If they were all the same you would not be alive today because some bad cop would have shot you already.

    Terry, what can I say? The now ex cop must have lost his temper and cool and rational thought. I said the same thing. Even with planting the taser near the body, he would not be able to explain away the bullets to the back. He is not getting out of this. If he does, even I will demonstrate. I will not however loot or burn.

    No burning Colleen,,but i will go you half on the looting..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<

    Fine but you carry the heavy stuff.

    Yeah that's right,just use me for my muscle,,if i gotta carry it, it's a 30/70 split.>>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    Agreed, you get 30% and I get 70% :)

    How did i know you would say that Colleen..Nice banter,i like that..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<

    Did you see the update? He's facing the death penalty if he's found guilty.
    terryfossil 1

    I believe they have the death penalty in that state,so i guess that would stand,,My son was a cop,i asked him about the 8 bullets in the back,he said that is not the problem,in some places you can fire on a suspect until the suspect stops,,however the cop has to know the suspect is wanted for something more serious than a broken tail light..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    5 bullets hit him. The one through the heart killed him. He had an outstanding warrant for failure to pay child support. Hardly a dangerous crime,. The only time a police officer can fire at a fleeing suspect is if the suspect is armed and poses an immediate threat to civilians or the officer. The guy was not armed, the (ex) cop knew it, that's why he went back and picked the taser off the ground where they struggled, and then brought it back to the body and tossed it on the ground near him. He wanted to make it look like the guy was armed when he ran. I see zero defense for this ex cop.

    I don't know all the facts but regardless, eight shots is overkill to the max! Charles Whitman was only shot once. Once is all it takes......

    I'm glad for once, they fired him and charged him with murder. This has gone on long enough. !! Don't they screen these psychos before they hire them ?

    MCM,you will always get some fall through the cracks..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<

    May be he should have produced a Police Clearance.

    What has gone on long enough? When was the last time you heard of an officer shooting a suspect in the back? I can't think of a recent incident like this one.The only killing recently that is even close to this one is the kid the rookie cop killed in Chicago. He should go down for murder too. You need to check some real facts mcm. For the 318 million people in the USA, we have about 1,000,000 police officers for the whole USA. I think the cops do a great job considering the amount of people and area they have to cover. If the cops were as bad as media wants you to believe, then we should have stacks of body bags from police killings. I'm assuming your comment of "it's about time" concerns the criminals that have been killed by police officers lately. Micheal Brown, Eric Garner, and the newest one who attacked his friend, strangers and the cop who ultimately shot him?

    I am waiting for all the cops that were ambushed and killed in the line of duty.  Not much on that but you can go into any police station and somewhere they will have a wall of  their deceased killed in action policemen/women.   We had three die not long ago here, just walked up on the porch, knocked on the door and were shot dead where they stood.
