If a good, cool headed cop had been the one to walk up to the driver side window we wouldn't be having this conversation

I understand and that is tragic but being trigger happy isn't the answer

I have a pistol in my truck and wouldn't dream of pulling it on a cop but that's apparently all it takes and that should make all cc people nervous

He didn't commit a crime,but most of these incidents are escalated by these idiots who were not taught to respect authority and don't understand that they are required to follow the police instructions for their own safety and the safety of the officer until the peace officer has done his investigating.
Having a yappy wife likely didn't do anything to ease any tension either.

But Boco he did follow the rules. He he told the cop he had a cc permit and a weapon in the car and proceeded to reach for his license when the officer asked. Don't disrespect the dead. And his girlfriend was much more put together than the officer despite the circumstances

I doubt the cop would have been acquitted if it was as innocent as you say.
Over the years I have had interactions with cops.They are doing a job,and if they stop me they have a reason.I speak with them man to man in a respectful and civilized manner.I follow thir instructions and have never had a problem.If I had any reason to believe they were in the wrong,a court of law is the place to address that.
You don't tell a cop that you have a hidden gun then go reach for something unknown or unseen,that sounds like supreme stupidity.

In what way shape or form did he disrespect that cop?

Assuming you get the chance to go to said court of law. This man was respectful to the officer yet he paid the ultimate price.

I don't know I wasn't in court to hear the evidence.Others on here have indicated that the wife was berating the peace officer in a disrespectful and belligerent manner.Not sure if that was before or after the incident.

I haven't been alive long boco but I've learned that real justice is far too evasive

Too much disrespect for authority nowadays,disrepect for elders also.Couple that with all the police being targeted and killed by scum and I can see why cops are more on edge nowadays-they have good reason to be.And the result is incidents like this.
I'm on the side of the guy doing his job to support his family everyday and putting his life on the line for the good of our society.

He may have been aiming for the Woman, Boco. Boco I kind of think along the same line of thought just as you do. I did not see all the evidence, there fore I can't judge the cop. If he did shoot the man and it was murder then he needs to go to the pen.

Doing your job is one thing. Shooting a man, who WAS being respectful to the officer, is another

I may have seen that tape a while ago,but a tape does not tell the story.In and of itself a videotape is only a small part of the evidence from a 2-d perspective.

The officers recounted the story and never once did they contradict the story of the original testimony

A fundamental part of early America (not the Canadians the redcoats had their way with you guys for awhile) is that a man in a uniform should be held to the same standards as a civilian
