If they really had nothing better to do than arrest this dude, they could have used a tazer or bean-bagged him BEFORE they shot him. He was picking up his things to go with them when they set off the flash-bang and let the dogs loose. They didn't shoot him until he had turned BACK around to pick up his bags again, after the dog came after him. This was a murder, plain and simple.
I know there's always more to it than the footage that we get to see, but that was all I needed to see for this one. And anyone with half a brain would need no reason to see the rest of the footage either. There was zero reason to kill that guy. Period.
The other thing that really sets me off is that if a soldier was to do this in a WAR ZONE(not just the outskirts of ABQ), they would be tried for murder and most likely found guilt. If the po-po does it, we just put them on administrative leave for a while and still send them a check.
But hey, at least the cops got to go home safe that night, right?
