The fact that the man was shot in both the front and back suggests that at one point he was running away from the police, which warrants an investigation into why the police were shooting a man who was not shooting at them. They need to determine if there was excessive use of force and discipline the offending officers accordingly.
While it is understood that in tense moments, we do not always act with complete control, police officers, and those trained specifically for security purposes, should be experts. There should be not "accidental" overkills in their world. They are trained professionals who need far more training to develop the restraint needed to not have these issues, before being released into our towns.
Yes, there should be a criminal investigation. Whenever a person is shot, the police should investigate. Every person deserves the right to dignity and part of that is understanding what happened to them and why. In my opinion, it is always, with out a doubt, a crime to shoot another person. Therefore, every time someone is shot, regardless of who they are, there should be a criminal investigation.
Yes, a criminal investigation into the shooting of the man by BRPD is warranted. Both officers claim that their body cameras fell off during the incident. The store owner who witnessed it said that the police did not handle the situation correctly at all. Shooting a man for selling CDs outside of the store is not a reason to confront a man and shoot him.
