Over at OT yesterday there was a thread with much hoopla over two LA cops punching an arrestee in the face as per a YouTube video that ran like 7 seconds long max.
I posted in that thread that I felt the video was too short to show one way or the other if the police were being abusive or not. Then today ocver at ABCNews.com I see news of an FBI investigation going on toward the case as result of the video; http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=2642801

Folks have to understand cops have a hard ass job and have to make snap decisions which on the surface for a given interaction and result may appear to be unfair or not justified, if you aren't there or even if there is a video to record things.
The following is proof of just how different video angles of the same thing can distort how an action might appear.
Additionally these two videos are good for those of us who CCW or have firearms for home protection as it shows in real life and real time how difficult it might and can be to stop an otherwise determined average sized human with a pistol.

Be warned the videos are graphic and show in real time a human being being shot and assumedly killed by a police officer.

Video 1 / Angle 1 / Car Cam 1 / Perp

Video 2 / Angle 2 / Car Cam 2 / Same perp as above
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc1hdOTEbPU

Watch both videos in sequence number 1 first and then number 2.
Imagine if video 2 never existed how video 1 might be played and recieved n a court of law.
As well take note of the gun shots toward the perp which begin as heard off screen and end with him taking a head shot.
As I counted a total of 15 shots from multiple officers were fired (!) before the final two including one to the head resulted in the perp being stopped. A total of seven were fired before the perp spun around as shown in video two and aggresively pointed an object at the officer to the far left, twice, as he was being shot by the officer to the far right.

Next time you see in the news tale of a police or citizen shooting another to defend their lives or that of another know that there is more to the picture than just one angle, even if there might be a video on YouTube.

Janq, you always have the best quotes. e.g.
""Here is something you can't understand. How I could just kill a man." - Cypress Hill"

Yep, it's Cypress Hill.

Yes you do have to sign up because it's extremely graphic...showing a real life man being shot multiple times in the body and then one in the brain pan.
Ages ago though Young Williams turned me on to a thing called 'Bug Me Not' that is very useful for such sign up before seeing/using activities. I used that inlieu of actually registering FTW.
