Very bad. For a lot of reasons. A man is wanted for arrest for unpaid child support. A cop shoots the man while the man is running away and clearly, at that moment, is not a threat. The officer then apparently picks up and moves and drops his Taser closer to the dead body? Oh, it's all bad.
The North Charleston, South Carolina, police officer is being charged with murder.
The NYT has the video.
As if the first seven shots weren't bad enough... the pause and the eighth shot? That last shot, as so often happens, will doom the cop. Though in this case it's not like the first seven were justified. But even if they were, cops have to justify all their shots. And a pause indicates a reassessment of threat. And then he shot again?
