    Sheriff shooting unarmed Airforce Iraq Vet?

    Anyone see \ hear about the video of the Sheriff's Deputy shooting the unarmed Airforce Iraq vet? Looks like he didn't know he was being videotaped.
    Sorry I don't have a link. Maybe someone can post it after me.

    From what I saw - looks like the Dep should be kicked off the force and put behind bars...

    Yea I saw that and I'm pissed off about it to.

    That it attempted murder folkes. Not so clear video cause it was dark but very clear sound. The guy did what he was told and was shot 3 times for it.

    He was not the driver, his buddy left him hanging and put him in that position.

    I saw a piece of the tape, and unless there is something on another part of the tape that we didn't see, this looks like a really BAD shoot!

    Folks I am not saying this is a good shoot , I just ask that you remember that in the media they all are bad , I for one will await the results of the investigation by both the local iad and the fbi which is also involved .

    Hard to say if it was a good or bad shoot. The tape is dark and too many words are muffled. The press seems to want to crucify PD officers. Yes there are bad cops, but this tape is very insubtantial proof.

    I saw this a few days ago - should have saved a link, sorry.

    For sure we have to be careful judging - but what distressed me was that the three shots came as the guy was attempting to stand up - as IIRC he had been ordered to do. There was no obvious bad move visible at all.

    I hope very much some more info might be released on this - to better help us judge objectively, on what appears so far to be a disastrous shoot IMO.

    I saw the video (Long version) and the shooting does look bad. I do not think it was done on purpose, but it smells like rookie cop caught in stress thinking one thing and saying another....maybe. Bad Training at least, the cop was way too close to a "suspect" and his tone of voice and attitude afterwards was just almost like he was losing control. Nobody is gonna win this one
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    As alot of you, I wouldn't judge the Deputy too quickly as the media always tries to do. The edited tape looks bad, though, I have to admit. It is just that, however, an edited tape......

    Well, from what I've heard, the vet is still alive, so the truth will be known.

    Ivory, the Officer is a Quota Baby and has had problems with force before. She should be kicked out of the Police Dept. and put in jail. Our Vet should be driving a Caddy in about 6 months.
