Winging isnt allowed. It happens by accident but pretty hard to do with legs and arms flailing around on the run. What is the cop to do, shoot him in the leg standing there so he cant run. Non lethal use of a lethal weapon isnt a playbook tactic on the streets.Shot in the back, more than once...What would you classify it? Maybe "suicide by cop"--but, wait, I changed my mind...watch me run...!
...I wish the police could be better trained in non lethal shooting...such as leg wounds....Seems that is never a choice...in this case, I think it should have been the choice...
Sometimes you just need to let the guy continue running when the offense doesn't warrant death. They have his name and can impound his vehicle and get a warrant.
It's all second guessing I know and I'm guilty of that, but how many people need to die where the focus should be on doing what's right instead of compliance at all costs, even death.
I don't know one cop who went to work wishing to harm anyone, but I do see many people on TV intent on rioting and assaulting others including harming our cops. I hate it when cops get suckered into the emotional pit and they lose their self control and sensibilities which is happening at an increasing rate.
But non lethal use lethal weapons is not a good choice. For the very reason above.
