    When a cop repeatedly tells you to put your hands up, and you don't, and you reach into the vehicle for something while he says he'll shoot, is it a surprise that he shoots?

    He told him to put his hands up, which the guy didn't.

    The guy jumps out of the vehicle and reaches in back for who knows what while the officer repeatedly tells him that he WILL shoot if he doesn't comply.

    Does that justify it? No. But it makes it a bit more likely that bad shit will happen to him. I have to say, I watched it, and I can see why the cop felt there was possible danger. The guy WAS reaching back into the car instead of putting his hands up.

    No, that doesn't mean he needs to be shot over and over, though.

    Let the flames begin.
