Yes. He should have been given a note pad and a pencil to draw a gun.

So the cop was a fucking idiot and had his weapon drawn with his finger on the trigger and the safety off. The gun discharged and killed this kid.
That’s the problem: Glocks don’t have a safety. The officer must assume full responsibility for the death of the suspect but a poor gun design didn’t help. The story is the officer mistook the Glock for a taser – understandable since both are plastic and ugly. But there was no need for either a pistol or taser; the suspect was in handcuffs.

The officer was indeed an idiot, he’s in deep shit, should lose is job and perhaps spend some time in jail – but I don’t believe he intentionally shot the guy.

i have a problem with people who give this cop an out. leo's are regular people, there are good one and bad ones. i'm so tired of people making excuses for cops like " i'm sure he didnt mean to shoot him" or "it was an accident". these are not the same excuses given for the average guy who is accused of a similar crime. how the hell do you know what the cop was thinking? the victim was laying on the floor with himself & another cop on top of him. why would he pull the trigger on a taser gun with his fellow officer in direct physical contact with the victim? so as to shock the other officer? also from what i understand tasers are not designed to be used in that close proximity (2 ft). also I wonder what the officers story would have been if the video did not surface so soon. resisting arrest? the officer was assaulted or he feared for his life?

now a days you have cops who brazenly commit crimes like robbing bank's, rape, and murder and the public usually does not make any excuses for their actions unless the victim seems to be a minority. also when there is a video of a regular citizen committing a crime they are usually consider guilty immediately by the same people.

also the cop quit before he could be questioned, i wonder why?

My mom's dead. Thanks for bringing that up dickhead.

She passed away about 4 weeks ago. We are still pretty shook up about it. It was too sudden.

Sorry about your loss! I will take responsibility and accept being a dickhead for now.
