The cop said show your hands as he pulled up. You can clearly see at :20 sec he's reaching in his pants pulling the gun out. They are like 10 feet apart. The boy is looking at the cop as he's pulling the gun out. Look at the picture of that gun and tell me if I pulled it out 10 feet in front of you how long before you decide if it's fake or not.
Damn I know everybody wanna crucify police but in this instance the cops did what they were supposed to. If he doesn't reach in his pants he's still alive today.
Understandable..But it seems by pulling up on him SO CLOSE(like you said like 10 feet away from him) they created a higher danger for themselves and then they reacted to that increased danger. There was no time devoted to accessing the situation. If I think you have a gun I'm not going to pull up on you and hop out a car 10 feet in front of you.
