The report also details lots of bizarre behavior by Shaver. He points guns out the window, he's drunk, he moves his hands towards his body despite repeated commands not to do it. He starts crying for no apparent reason. The report also notes that the videos from other cops show them tensing up or pointing guns at Shaver when the one who shot him fired.
I find this emphasis on the "transcript" to be puzzling as well. Do you really think people who pull guns on cops say something like "You'll die now, copper!" as they do it? I know this idea can't be completely foreign to you since y'all have no problem disbelieving cops who say "stop resisting" while beating someone.
Being drunk is not bizarre behavior. And the reports just says that the witness thought he was drunk based on how much had been drunk from a bottle. Maybe he spaced that amount over days? Anyway, who cars? Being drunk is your hotel room is not reason for suspicion.
Crying? Maybe because he (correctly) thought he was about to be shot in the head by a fucking psyco? The guy who was aiming an AR at him for no good reason. (remember, while the cops might not have know it, the victim knew full well he was unarmed and had not committed any crime).
The report says several times that it the victim was following or attempting to follow all the police commands. And that he was on all fours begging for his life, face down, hands out.
Anyway, I'm done. Even if they found a signed confession from the pig saying "I want to go out and kill tonight" it would not matter to you. When it comes to cops, you're just a blind supporter, logic, facts, and reason don't play into it.
