My daughter in laws brother was shot and killed by police in the parking lot of a 7-11. I did not really know him well he was 20 years old and in trouble a bit normal teen troubles. Well the police were looking for him for a warrant he has for not showing up for court for a fight he was in. Police found him in his car and according to the servellince tape from the store they were plain clothes dressed like gangster did not identify themselves as police and rushed him. From what we gathered he may have thought he was going to get jumped so he tried to drive away when police shot him 4 or 5 times and killed him. Police stated that they shot him as they considered the car to be a deadly weapon. In my opinion the police could have shot him once if necessary to stop him, but why shoot him so many times as to kill him, did they hate him that much or did they really fear for their lives? What do you think, how far should police go. Just looking for opinions.
