Abuse of power and/or position is dangerous in ANYONES hands, am I wrong?  A badge (or wealth) shouldn't be a shield for accountability. What are they protecting and whom are they serving? It appears not the things they swore to uphold.

Is it just me or is this more of a problem than ever?
I don't put it at the doorstep of more crime since crime, especially violent crime, is way way down.
I really think that it's a lot of cops having come back from combat.
They are treating the entire US population as insurgents and criminals.

I'm not so sure, dude. Even minor things, seem to be fine, eg using a mobile/cell phone whilst driving, if you have an authoritive status. It's a joke, man, it really is. Yes not all are bad, but as in the video clip, there should be a more effective screening process into who can be allowed into the security/ armed forces. Dude had a point ,IMO.

Turns out he was stopped for an expired inspection sticker.
For this to go from that to him getting shot is not good.
It's like a doctor amputating a limb to deal with a pimple.
For me the most interesting thing from the video clip is how terrified the officer sounds.
While we don't see the entire incident the level of alarm that you can hear from the officer seems inconsistent with one old hippy.
This really is how people with PTSD walk around nearly 100% of the time.
In a state of constant alarm.
The only way you shoot someone in a situation like that is if you perceive a real danger or you are a psycho.

Maybe if officer x had listened to the dude's story, he wouldn't have entered a world of pain. True, we don't know the whole story, but its still one hell of an over reaction even if the victim had other  causes for being stopped, PTSD or not.

I really hope actual real justice is done in this and any/all other cases.

Amazing recording of a cop stop.
Cop is intent on escalating the situation.
It really looks like an instance of "driving while black".
She ends up dead. A "suicide".
I think people are waking up to the fact that this stuff goes on.
