Just watched the amateur video. The actions by the police was inexcusable. Hall, at no time made any aggressive movement toward the police officers at the scene, in fact can be seen in a defensive crouch.

Also rather interesting is that fact that there were over half a dozen police officers at the scene, and all except one of their cars' onboard cameras (that wasn't pointed toward the confrontation) and EVERY on-person microphone all supposedly failed simultaneously, and the police department didn't even address the shooting until after the amateur video was discovered.

Thanks for watching. It is one of the most egregious killing by cops I've seen.

I'm shaken. As I said again and again, this is unacceptable in humanity.

Once again we see the cost of inadequate mental health coverage in the US.

This man should have been in an institution or otherwise receiving help. Why do we call it kindness to allow the mentally ill to wander homeless, cold, and hungry?

That was an execution.

I wonder why the investigation is moving so slowly.

Awful business.

I guess not one officer had a taser. Inexcusable. That was murder.

Exactly. It's one thing if someone is so hopped up on drugs that tasers, bean bags, etc., don't drop someone and the person moves toward the police officers with a weapon. It's entirely another thing to see a man not moving toward the officers and their first defense is to blast away. It's sickening.

Gee, isn't it just too bad that all of the police officers vest microphones and all but one of their dash cameras "malfunctioned" so that there is no audio of this event at all and only one "official" video that does not capture the subject in frame in the moments leading up to the police opening fire?

How very...uhh...unfortunate that is for the follow up police investigation into whether the shooting was justified or not.

/*snort* equipment malfunction, riiight, sure.

re: #7 Sionainn

Throwing 46 rounds at someone is beyond extreme and is borderline criminal. That in itself shows problems with the training and officers themselves. Over reaction and now a dead man with Forty Six Holes in him. Forty Six.

There is a reason may nations don't hand out side arms to police. The amount of training needed to be proficient with a side arm is very high in terms of man hours and cost. With automatic weapons it is just very easy to have your adrenaline rush itch your trigger finger over and over and before you know it every cop squeezed off the entire gun's clip. This maybe is made worse by built in prejudices police may have for minorities, etc.

lack of training is also shown when cops use tasers - using it in cases that should not be used like the old lady who double dared a cop to write her a ticket or something and got tasered.

It just shows cops in America are not well trained. Even the best trained cops in America, NYC cops, show a real lack or fire arm training and control.
