What the hell is wrong with cops ? DEPT. …

OKAY IN WHAT WAY IS THIS SHOOTING JUSTIFIED ?

61 year old suspected shoplifter in a motorized shopping cart, brandishing a knife is gunned down by 9 shots to the back and side. There is footage of the suspect fleeing at what seems like a ridiculously slow enough pace for the cop to be walking with him as if the cop is a caregiver.

I mean come on really? There was no other possible way to disarm this suspect? This cop lost his job over this, this man lost his life for shoplifting. In no way does it look like this cop is threatened.

This kind of news both angers and sickens me.
