Hell no, this was obviously murder/man slaughter from the start and I said the same thing when this story broke.  There were four cops standing side by side all armed with rifles pointed at the guy .  Of the four, only Brailsford shot after he claimed he "thought he was reaching for a weapon".  That right is a dead give away that Brailsford over-reacted and at the very least should have been found guilty of man slaughter.  But I can tell you exactly what happened.  After Brailsford fired FIVE rounds and killed the guy because he is a scared little bitch with an itchy trigger finger who should have never been hired in the first fucking place.  His fellow cops knew he fucked up but because of the "thin blue line" bullshit they all agreed with his story and went to bat for him.  Couple that with a dumb ass jury who have been inculcated that ALL cops are "heros" because reasons, and you end up with Brailsford not suffering any real consequences for depriving a wife of her husband and two daughters of their father.

 

Brailsford was fired, so obviously the Chief of Police knew he fucked up and was in the wrong.

Thin blue line. I want to disable him permanently just for wearing those fucking goggles. They used to SCREEN applicants to favor family men who regularly attend church. Now they hire beta fucks who want to be Keanu Reaves in the movie Speed and tattooed thugs to be police officers, while arming them with more powerful weaponry and instructions to shoot to kill if you're scared. Fuck.

This produces the same reaction in me that the Finicum video produces. So I won't watch it.
