dafman:

 

Just watched Sunday on a fatal police shooting in Hamilton.

 

If the non-police witnesses are correct, it was an execution.

 

If the police are correct, it was a justified shooting.

 

There was more than one non-police witness, and they appear to be unrelated to each other. On balance, having watched the episode, I think there is reason to believe that the police used unnecessary force to enter the property, without clearly identifying themselves, shooting to death within seconds.

 

There would be an easy way to assist to determine what happened. It would be simple and inexpensive to put non-intrusive vest-mounted cameras onto armed police heading out to a potentially volatile encounter. It's time it happened.

 

 

 

 

In this case, I believe the police version. 

 

 

 

Cameras are a good idea, although I could see they are a pain in the butt. The last thing you want to worry about when fighting an armed perp is whether the battery is charged on your cam.

They don't necessarily need to be a pain the butt if they are mounted on the chest instead?
