I saw that and had a hard time believing it was real, but apparently it is. Here's a link to the full video without all the talking heads commentary. https://vimeo.com/124336782

WTF was he thinking? He's going to prison for sure.

Wow. I've been a believer that if you run from a cop, you get what you deserve but this seems odd. Especially since he doesn't look like a fast runner that couldn't be caught on foot.

It is a war zone in the city.

That's the perception on both sides, and this video adds to the proof.

I believe the police officer claimed (before the video was released) that he tried to take his taser and ran, then he shot him.

The guy looks to be running away so slowly and the officer looks to be in ZERO distress.

We're obviously all armchair quarterbacking, but, even at the start of the video the "tussle" for control looks to be fake and in slow motion.

It all looks SO FAKE that I can't even fathom why the hell a cop would have shot that guy.

@whiterhino I'm 100% with you on running from the cops, tackle the guy and rough him up a bit before/while cuffing him, i get it, you shouldn't run. But this just appears to be insane.

The perception of what is happening in this video looks VERY bad.

This was the claim, but it almost looks like the cop drops the taser next to the body.....

I would go more along the lines of terrible shot, That dude was moving at the speed of Alex and he still needed close to 8 tries.

ummmm easy to say until you are in the same situation. You just got through chasing someone and then had a physical altercation where there was some type of scuffle over a taser and then you have a running target. Yup, easy to say that you can hit center mass every shot, harder to do.
