That’s what a man asked .. over and over… after he was shot by a South Carolina State Trooper.
The entire event was caught on the officer’s dash board camera; the action starts about 40 seconds into the video.
I want to know what you think of what happened and … what would you do?
The officer is white and the suspect is black … but I don’t think that is an issue. This is a case where an officer clearly over-acted, but when you see how things go down … it is somewhat understandable. The officer is charged with aggravated assault and battery; that is a felony that could get him 20 years in prison if convicted; the head of the State Police said: The force administered in this case was unwarranted, inconsistent with how our troopers are trained, and clearly in violation of department policies.
