Police shooting

This video was posted a while back here, but I got an email about it, with some better explanation of what REALLY happened.

It is very likely that you'll form a quick opinion of these two officers
when the suspect is shot.
Watch the video and what do you see? An officer ordering the suspect to put
the gun down and it appears he is complying.
And then him being shot is that what you see.
Now, do you want to know what it is like to work the streets and what you DO
face?



Watch the video AGAIN ...and now watch the suspect's right hand while he
places the weapon down with his left hand!
What you DON'T see .....but the officer behind the suspect DOES see is the
suspect is pulling a hidden handgun from his rear pants with his right hand
and as he falls, you can see that handgun in his right hand.
Just a reminder .....what you think you see at first does NOT always tell
the truth of the whole situation. Watch it again, and learn!
Being a policeman is NOT an easy job but making a good split second
decision can save his life!
SOMETIMES THE GOOD GUY'S WIN.

There is no way that vid is real. Police do not calmly walk up to and holster their weapon after shooting a person with a pistol in their hand.

hmmm, youre right that does seem a little fishy!!

on tv they always KICK the gun away!!!

(if it were an internet video....they would follow up with a complimentary Tazeing!!!!)

I'm no cop but I've been in enough situations to know how they behave and that is not the way even the dumbest rookies approach a man with a weapon.

@ the complimentary tazing

Training video, maybe or something like that, but if watch the guns, the officer in the front is not the one shooting the one in the back is, shooting the suspect in the back. There is three flashes, the first flash then the pop (sound, because the gun will shoot faster then the sound will travel to the mic of the camera), then a double tap and the suspect falls down, If the vid is real the officer may be using 9mm with most likely hollow points that do not over penetrate.
