Still doesn't justify killing him....  They have a dangerous job .... but need to use good judgement ..... They were were going to a house  of a man that had no criminal history.   I was (when a college student, 1960's) I was shot at by a policeman  who thought I was a burglar.... I was a night-time employee.  He was no rookie but about 50 years old. He gave no warning at all ... just shot.

They shot an innocent man.

28 years.

If you were in this situation and someone close to you was shot for opening the door you’d be “meh, police were on high alert?”

It seems really odd to completely disregard the prank call as a factor because that dictates the mind set of the officers going into the situation. 

Of course the family is upset. They lost a loved one. Hopefully the police  catch the individual that placed the fake call.

So the cop that shot first, asked questions later, is not to blame?

I haven't seen the exact details of what the police said and what the individual did that led to the shooting itself. It's obviously a terrible situation and that goes without saying. I just think that "murder" is a really irresponsible term to use in these situations. That officer didn't wake up that day wanting to kill someone. Also, I don't know how one can disregard the different mindsets officers would need to be in for a hostage situation vs.say... not using a turn signal. The information they are given about a situation matters. Could there still have been a mistake made? Sure.

The guy opened the door and put his hands up. He opened the door and was shot seven seconds later.

The guy who called in the prank call has been apprehended.

The moment police don't take a call like this serious is when innocent people and/or police officers get killed. You have to obey police officers' commands otherwise things like this can happen.

Just curious as to how the usual suspects will defend trigger happy, poorly trained police murdering an innocent man in his own house.

https://t.co/bUUCXhdC0F?amp=1

If he didn't want to get shot, then he shouldn't have been living at the place that matched a fake address one idiot gave another idiot when taunting each other over video games, which a 3rd idiot then called in to police as a fake hostage situation, bringing on a militarized police response that led to a hair-trigger killing. 

Millennials just don't understand personal responsibility. Just imagine that officer's bullet is a participation trophy, and maybe then you'll appreciate it a little.

He did obey police though? It was a seven second span. He put his hands up.

The bootlickers are out.

According to this article, the man killed didn't follow commands:

He appeared to reach for something in/around his waistband. I guess the police should wait and find out he was reaching for?

There’s a video. He put his hands up. In the span of seven seconds.

Good luck getting a conviction should this ever get to trial. The odds would be stacked against the prosecution. Also, suing the police and city does nothing but punish the tax payers. Either way, it's a lose/lose situation.

I think, if the way we do policing in this country means that you can be completely innocent, have nothing to do with anything that led a police officer to your door, open immediately calmly and peacefully, put your hands up when instructed, and STILL be fatally shot within less than 10 seconds... Maybe we've taken a wrong turn on how we do policing. Maybe.

If only people wouldn't commit crimes maybe the police wouldn't need to carry guns, tazers, mace, wasps, handcuffs, etc.

He was shot when he put his hands down to his waist.

Obviously, the officer made a serious error in judgment.  A fatal error.  He may well deserve to be dismissed for this.  I'm sure it will eat at his conscience the rest of his life.  But it's obviously not murder.

It’s clearly murder. Not first degree, but murder. Glad to see the punishment for murdering an innocent man is having a guilty conscience.

If you randomly had a SWAT team at your door you wouldn’t be startled and confused, maybe put your hands up immediately?

We live in a dystopian police state and bootlickers like you are why.

Let's all ease up on the namecalling and try not to make this all personal. No more warnings here. 

My concern is less about the rules, and more because people are getting into a heated online argument. If one of you gets angry enough, you might give my address to a 3rd party that SWATs my house, and I'll end up dead when a police officer comes to my door.

I apologize for trying to respond fairly and rationally to what I clearly see now is a trolling thread.

Dude...I'm critical in situations like this too, but the vast majority of police want to see as little of this fatal unprofessionalism as we do, whether it is labeled as murder or accidental shooting or anything in between. Even if it was just poor judgment and not a dirty cop as we've seen in other cases, it's not like it's all of them. I've even known of ranked police officers to make light of this sort of thing in the past, but with it being in the public eye more now than ever, you don't really get much of that anymore. It's online punditry that is more polarized than the police themselves, and more so all the time. There are still apologists out there wearing blue, but many want to be seen as a force for good and not as a danger to any random person at the wrong time. More bad cops and just plain bad decisions are being caught on camera now, so they are taking precautions to avoid these more than before when it was an officer's word against...pretty much anyone else's. I'm still dismayed at the current state of things, but they are taking steps to change it...and the attitudes of many officers is showing a big cultural shift as well.

Note that this statement isn't in regard to the current specific topic, but the fact that it's being relegated to the larger topic of police violence as it pertains to unarmed persons.

I don't see how a rational, big-picture conversation on law enforcement procedures and training practices will result in the eye and tooth my side of the yelling feels it's due

If anything positive can come out of something like this, it"s that agencies may be more careful about how they screen police applicants & how they train them.
