Now, the best way not to get shot by a cop is not to run from them, and not present a threat….
Comply with the officer’s orders.
Usually that works.
Sometimes not. David Kassick apparently ran and that led, ultimately, to his demise…
I wasn’t there, and I didn’t see the whole thing and I wasn’t on the jury that acquitted Officer Lisa Mearkle of murder.
From the piece of video I saw at THIS link, I don’t think I could have acquitted her though.
I saw an officer shoot a man who, at that time, presented no threat. I heard her screaming and her orders were somewhat incoherent.
If that were you or me or any non-police gun owner, we’d have been tried for murder. And would be in prison for murder right now.
I’d like to hear the members of the Jury explain their decision. Perhaps they saw evidence that the rest of us didn’t….
