The guy does seem like he may have been a mental case or on drugs, and if reports are to be believed (corrupt MSM) then their was certainly justification to take this guy down. I just get a kick out of the officers emptying magazine after magazine into a lifeless body on the ground. 125 shots fired at the guy? Hard not to laugh at such a movie-like scene.

Do try to keep up; they FIRED 90+ rounds, doesn't mean they LANDED 90+ rounds.

It DOES mean more range time needed.

The whole thing was caught by a camera in a police helicopter. The guy certainly did look like he was pointing a gun at the police while running away, and combined with the police statement that he told a 911 dispatcher that he had a gun, this seems like a justifiable shoot. I suspect the guy was trying to make the police think he had a gun in the belief that they'd let him get away rather than shoot. Bad choice.

If Obama had a son, he might look just like this guy... :)
