    Well, you see, even naked, as we know, the black man's mightiest weapon is their dong, so can't be too safe with them around.

    Spoiler:
    Jokes apart, I'm not surprised by the gross incompetence of the American police

    His must have been especially intimidating. They must have been afraid of being assaulted with it. :maybe

    They tried. It failed.
    Considering the guy caused a huge accident, while driving naked and then charged at the officers after failing to run away, this sounds like a warranted use of a gun.

    The dude was probably high on drugs, imo.

    He must have been really high if a taser and/or pepper spray didn't work.

    Do cops not know how to restrain someone physically?
    He was a single guy and they were many. Surely in between them they have enough strength to restrain him.
    But life is cheap in America so he was shot instead.

    Yeah. Usually, you're literally on the ground pissing yourself when a taser is used.

    Sometimes they do. Of course, I might be thinking of a stun gun or a cattle prod. The voltage is higher. You're not running away from either of those. :quite

    It's rare, and it usually happens when people are drunk or have a nearly full bladder anyway. Nearly everyone in Law Enforcement has to be tased once during training to see how it feels and they don't wear extra pants.

    Yea, I thought electricity running through muscles caused them to contract - shouldn't that mean that the person getting shocked would clinch harder?

    A bunch of police officers can't detain a naked man without the use of a gun?

    Was he in the car when they shot him? Was he armed when they shot him? The answer is no and no. They are the answers that matter when determining his threat.

    It's jarring to me that people are willing to let this standard pass for the thugs policing their community. I'd be deeply concerned if the police officers in my country started shooting unarmed civilians in conflict. I'd expect them to have a respect for life.

    There was absolutely no need gun for the gun here. No need. The man was unarmed. Persistent? Yeah. A risk to the officer's life or anyone else's other than his own? Very unlikely.

    Well on one hand the guy was unarmed, on the other hand he DID a hit and run.

    People who do a hit and run can burn in hell for all I care.

    But hey, still, the police is in the wrong.

    It's not incompetence. They seem far more reasonable when dealing with whites, even armed whites. Compare the number of times a white active shooter has been taken into custody calmly and alive. You see the occasional person walking around here with a rifle on their back (always a white dude) and how often do you hear police have shot one of them (also the NRA would be up in arms if some white American got shot exercising their right, ).

    The police have a problem recruiting bigots and they do nothing about the bigots they have in their ranks. You have KKK groups with several people on police forces in some areas and just a general negative attitude toward blacks so that even people who aren't explicitly racist when joining the force are either pressured into it or steeped in the culture until they slowly change or leave.
