    It should be taking you to Youtube, but you do have to sign in as an adult because of the "graphic" nature of the video.

    Its working here, standby...


    EDIT, I posted another link, I didn't want to attack the issue this way, but its a interesting read anyway.

    worked for me. Had to sign in and "confirm" I was an adult.

    Obviously there is more to the story so I'm keeping my mouth closed and waiting.

    I agree. there is more to this than is shown in the video. That is the problem with any video, you only see what it shows.

    It appears to be excessive force; However, something happened off camera that probably warrants more force.
    Not enough info to make an informed opinion.
    In the second viedo there appears to be a weapon and officers were on track.

    I agree a gun cam would only show what happened after you unholstered,and only what it's pointing at not a 360 or even 180 view of the situation as it unfolds

    I now see what happened and I think they were justified in shooting him. Like previously posted, you can't always believe what you see on video.

    Sixto is trying to make a point and waiting for the first guy to rant off about it being excessive force and what a good thing it was that there was a camera there to catch it... I'm waiting.... :)

    No, but if I was doing that, I'd be highly annoyed at your post. I edited to post a sight that goes deep into the incident for all to see.

    Excessive force!? What is in the first video appears to be murder!

    Oh lighten up. And thanks for editing your OP so my comments look off base.

    However, I will say, thanks for sharing. Deffinately an interesting set of videos.

    I'm not mad, but I would have been.

    BTW, my edit was done 5-6 minutes before your first post, not that it matters any.

    You sure you weren't tampering with evidence?

    That is a great example though of how things are not always what the seem. And the problem with media coverage on the news. Often times you only get the "1st video"

    Thats exactly it, or what if the second car was never there or was positioned in such a way that it didn't get the video that paints an accurate picture?
    These LEO's certainly would have been convicted in the court of public opinion, and quite possibly a criminal court as well.
