Re: AZ: Police release graphic video of officer involved shooting of Texas man

In the death of Erik Scott there was contagious fire. The first police officer fired then the others fired.

Here only one police officer fired.

Did the other officers not see the immediate threat to their lives?

The company he worked for had a contract to kill all the birds that get inside Walmart's. He went from town to town, shooting birds with a pellet gun inside Walmarts.

Drunk with friends in his motel room plinking from his upper floor window, when some one saw the barrel sticking out the window and called the police.

There is a lot of talk about this online. Another article said he was allowed to use his own personal AR-15 rifle.

That violated department policy. The reason for the firing. That maybe and the 73 million dollar lawsuit.
The jury was not told about the inscription as it was ruled prejudicial.

Imagine being hit with an AR-15 at close range 5 times, he was probably dead with the first round.

None of the other officers fired their weapons.

Apparently there is a test going on where you play the video and try and comply correctly with the officers demands without messing up. He was drunk by the way.
