No excuse for a cop to shoot an unarmed 18 year old kid. NONE.

its weird because some fraternity kid got run over and killed when he was laying out in the road one night(not sure if he was drunk/high or what)

Apparently bath salts are a hell of a drug

This is a total tragedy all the way around. I feel for the kid and his family also the officer and his family. That being said, It's hard to believe anyone would do bath salts with the rep they have.

So the cop should let the strung-out adult charge them and attack? Sorry, officers are trained for these situations and once that gun is drawn, it's shoot to kill, not wound. Sounds like the officer gave the kid more chances than most would before shooting.

Yea that's what it seems like. If everything in that article is accurate it was definitely justified.

It's not about having an excuse. It is about doing what is necessary to stop the threat. You weren't there so you cannot say deadly force wasn't warranted. Him being unarmed is irrelevant if other factors deem it to be so.
