Nobody has to go to the suburbs. Every single person who is on any jury will call this murder. The cop plugs 16 bullets into this guy. 14 after he hits the ground and stops moving. The guy has a slim jim. There are at least ten officers there with guns drawn. While the attorney thinks that only black people will call this murder. I am sure white people will as well.
I won’t call this murder by a long shot. Just watched the video, known thug was behaving as though he was high and then spun around quickly with one hand out of sight reaching near his waist; I would have assumed he was drawing on me. SOP is shoot the threat until it is fully neutralized, which generally means until you are out of rounds, so number of shots fired is of no consequence.

The person shot was acting violently and erratically.
He refused to follow police commands.
He had a knife in his hand.
The number of rounds is almost irrelevant - they were fired very rapidly.
This is the first I have heard the “slim jim” reference. Can you post a source?
It might be manslaughter or negligent homicide. Murder is highly unlikely.
