Cameras & cops done right

Muskogee police department releases police video in wake of shooting of black suspect by officer. This is why it's important to have cameras, and why it's important to release the video. Exonerates the officer, shows the community how the decisions got made.

Uh, the full video.... NSFW, nor kids, of course.... seems to show someone being shot in the back as they run away, but I'll let you judge.

He saw a gun on the grab and the suspect grabbing it. He didn't know if he was coming up shooting or turning and running. I can't condemn him for what he did.
