Ok, here we go again... http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...ot-deaf-man-despite-yells-of-he-cant-hear-you In this case, I think I can sort of see both sides of it, but, no one is fully in the right here, IMO. The story says that this guy is non-verbal and could not hear. Where I'm unclear is why was he shot multiple times by multiple officers with guns and tasers at the same time? Ok, my thoughts, since no one is asking: 1. Being unable to hear, or being non-verbal, etc., does not excuse a person from threatening another person, especially a LEO, with a weapon. 2. Being 15+ feet away from a person with a melee weapon, and walking toward them at any pace considered "walking" is not really the level of "threatening" that warrants deadly force, IMO, under any circumstances I can really imagine. 3. If you are going to taze a bro, taze him. If you taze him and shoot him at the same time, something is flat wrong with the situation. I'm not 100% certain about tazing someone over them simply not complying with verbal instructions, but shooting them with bullets over just that is way to far. 4. So, it needs to be said - Really, no body cameras? I thought this was supposed to be a thing in 2017. How many of these shootings have actually had body cameras active? I'm sure there are cases we don't hear about, but I get the impression that the number of police not using body cameras and then shooting people is infinity times too high. So, really, the news making a big deal out of the guy being deaf, to me, is just a red herring. Same story - guy is not deaf - same outcome - I think it's the same conclusion of right and wrong. What do you think?
