What can I add that hasn’t been covered. Downright BAD shooting from the cop. No way to parse this thing.
So what the hell happened? My money goes to Slagger losing control of his emotions (getting upset/mad/pissed off) and letting himself slip into predator mode because Scott turned to run. Nothing activates the urge to catch something than seeing a perceived target run and, like it or not, we are predators. Predators are wired to chase and kill.
And I am not saying that you must go Vulcan and forego all emotions before carrying a gun. That would be a huge ball of manure. But you do need to be in control of such emotions and that can be done on a regular basis with the little, non-life threatening events that raise your blood pressure. From the jackass cutting you off and you not flipping the bird and plain ignoring him, to the jackass at work with the annoying personality, bad breath and lousy timing coming to bother you and not telling him to stuff it (or do so in a very polite and understanding way) to not totally losing your cool when the kids shave the cat and dip it in food coloring.
The sum of the little events will help to keep your beans cool when you need them for important stuff. Obviously confidence in your pistolcraft has also a great relevance, so don’t skimp there.
As for Slagger, have fun wearing orange.

Seven shots rapid fire, pause to take cold blooded aim, shoot him through the pump. It’s going to be kind of hard to defend against that. Just the fact that he paused to aim should be cause to charge him with murder in the 1st degree.Plus the fact that he planted evidence next to the victim.
He has no defense. His lawyer better be trying to make a deal for keeping him isolated form Gen Pop.
What happened before the tape started rolling?
Paul in Texas
Scott was pulled over for some traffic infraction. How they got to that place, I have no idea. The officer said Scott took his taser so he shot in fear for his life. In the video you should see the office picking something up from where he shot, go over Scott and drop it.
I have to respectfully disagree. I don’t think he slipped into predator mode. His casual demeanor afterwards was not that of someone hyped up from the chase. This was a cop that slipped into the Cartman “respect my authority” mode. He felt disrespected and decided to take his anger out Scott. Then he causally planted the TASER on Scott to justify his lost temper.
I know there are good cops out there, but my basic assumption is that cops are all Cartman deep down on the inside.
I don’t see it as a fully conscious decision. More like Cat “playing” with a mouse that gets away and cat coolly pounces on & kills it.
