    And they wonder why Cops are getting bad press.

    It looks like the man was cooperating, than they use a flash bang (which is intended to disorient) sounds like the non lethal rounds first, then the AR, man falls then when he doesn't respond they use more less lethal rounds.

    As always, choose your source of "info" wisely. If you check the local, mainstream news accounts, you'll know why it's a good shoot. The cops did exactly what they should have done.

    I didn't see the threat. He turned to walk away. If they needed to arrest him, they had a bean bag gun on site and I am sure a number of other lethal options. I didn't know that being convicted of being homeless carried a death penalty.

    The post above mine was apparently posted while I was typing. I have NOT checked the local media and ONLY watched the video.
