I wasn't commenting about the lawsuit, or what the circumstances were that brought on the shooting. I am just tired of letting the LEOs getting away with the "better than you attitude" they seem to operate under.

"“I don’t draw conclusions until I get to see what the officers had to say about their use of deadly force, which I haven’t done yet,” said Beck. "

This is stated by the Chief of Police, and he can't draw any conclusions when his officers shoot 90 rounds at what turns out to be an unarmed individual. I guess it is SOP for the LAPD to act this way. Why did they stop at 90? Is that the LAPD's magic number when a group get together to take down a perp?

Maybe all of their guns were empty.
