Surely he must have initially been going for his cuffs, even that dosnt make sence. Pulled the gun and the safety was off??
Cant think of a logical arguement, because if he wanted to shoot somebody even if it was racist, he has way too many witnesses.

The officer should be charged with first degree murder.

A taser should be used as a nonlethal alternative to a gun. If you wouldn’t use a gun in that circumstance, then you shouldn’t draw a taser either.

Been discussed to death on some firearms forums I am on.
The officer was going for his Tazer, the problem is that BART police carry the Tazer strong side next to their duty weapons, he grabbed the wrong handle, the Tazer is holstered and deployed almost exactly like a pistol, the biggest issue this has brought to light is training and equipment deployment protocols.

Local PD long ago realized the potential for this critical issue and switched their officers to carrying weak side crossdraw about 10 oclock on the duty belt for tazer deployment. In close combat grappling this prevents effective deployment of the Tazer though which limits officers to deploying a side arm in a grappling encounter.

Bacon, is there anything it can't cure?
