Totally unnecessary provocation from the victim, but also a huge overreaction from the police. You don't kill anyone over something they said, and that's it. I don't think there's even any situation where shooting anyone over something they said would be fine.
I'd also like to point out that Europe doesn't have a problem with police violence. Something seems to be wrong with American cops.
What provocation was that exactly?
The provocation was the man stating that he had a gun and a conceal and carry permit while reaching for his wallet. I watched the video and this course of aciton was at least stated as what happened by the woman recording the aftermath of the incident. It was not worth the officer shooting the man by any means.
What we don't know is if there was any attidude given whilst stating he had a gun and if he reached behind him in what could be honestly perceived as an aggressive manor.
So far the only evidence we have and know about is what the woman was saying to the camera after the incident occured. I will refrain from judging the incident as a whole and will not make a determination of guilt on either the officer or the gunshot victim until more, if not all, facts are released.
For background on the area of incident, I live just a couple miles outside of Falcon heights and it is not a bad neighborhood, in fact it is a very low crime neighborhood. It may be it's own city but is much more of a neighborhood of St. Paul than it's its own city. It is not far from the center of the Twin Cities metro area and is in the metro area for those that are wondering. Flacon heights does not have their own police force. They are policed by St. Paul Police Department mostly but officially by the St. Anthony Police Department.
