    Good Shoot/Bad shoot? Pastor Killed

    Hard to tell, seems mighty iffy to me. Escalade rolls up, non-uniformed officers, guns drawn. Guy panics and tries to hightail it away. Cops shoot the crap out of him, probably due to them standing behind the car as he's backing (why didn't the Escalalde block him in?)

    Apparently he was a young pastor, and had dropped someone off that the cops were looking for just before this happened.

    I don't think he woulda run had they properly i9dentified themselves,a badge on a chain may not be seen when all you see is guys with guns running at you,especially after leaving an ATM,why wasn't any lights on the vehicle used etc.did they even yell out Police stop,could be a bad shoot,

    I'm thinking he didn't know they were cops!

    I'm also thinking they had no reason to be shooting at him especially being UC!

    Tragic on all sides, so even if it was justified I wouldn't call it a "good" shoot. Understandable maybe. It doesn't say if they verbally identified themselves, just that they "clearly identified themselves". All things considered I don't think any charges are necessary. They shouldn't have fired, but considering he was steering at them and had already hit one, I can't fault them for it. It was an accident caused by a misunderstanding, not anything malicious.

    And what was the probable cause for them rolling up and drawing down on him in the first place?

    Seems that right there would give him all the AOJ to shoot them, if he'd been armed.

    Consequences? I doubt it.
