dave300D93 Mr. Scott might still be alive if this cop pulled him over:

PressTV-Video: US police officer runs over man

barrywatts That's all it was to begin with, but the cop asked for the vehicle registration certificate as they routinely do during traffic stops and Walter Scott said he didn't have one, that he was in the process of buying the car. When the cop goes back to his unit to call the license plate in and check for outstanding warrants, Scott bolts from the vehicle and starts running. It would not be unreasonable at that point for the cop to suspect that the car may be stolen and that he may be dealing with two dangerous suspects. He did not ask the passenger in Scott's car to exit the vehicle and did not search the car when he stopped them, so he must be wondering as he apprehends the suspect if either the suspect or the passenger have a gun. The passenger would be out of view of the officer and behind his back at that point. I think a jury will look at all the evidence and say the officer had probable cause to use deadly force as defined in Tennessee v. Garner, especially if the victim's fingerprints were found on the TASER, which has yet to be established.

I'm really interested in knowing who owns the car Walter Scott was driving. It probably wasn't stolen, but it would be reasonable for the officer to think that it might be under the circumstances.

Benzownersarebetter My apologies all, my intention on this thread was to ignite the large intelligence base in the forum on year to year differences during the w124 run given limited knowledge from the pictures provided by the media. Absolutely should have posted this in a different section as things panned out, but the interest in the car is exciting nonetheless.

Benzownersarebetter For sure! As many mitigating circumstances as there are for the officer in this instance the judge should (rightly) sentence appropriately and I hope he will. There's also an appellate process for the dumb judge here and there. You know what they say, if you don't know the law, you become a judge. But still got to love those w124. Been neglected in the hood for who knows how many years and still running. I hear cars running in the hood/downtown new haven, ct, where i work, usually down a cylinder or two with a thrown bearing due to no oil changes but they are always buicks or pontiacs or some such garbage. They don't care if they breakdown because they can walk home.

Sad but another form of w124 durability I suppose.

yeah, the code for active bass, 814, is on the data card... 300E2.6's were very much base models, with just standard options.
