The Police Officer feared for his life when after the victim told him he had a legal handgun, he did not respond to the officers verbal commands and reached for his wallet but the officer believed  he was reaching for the gun that he just told him about. 

The victim had his wife and his child in the car and the entire incident occurred very quickly in just a matter of seconds.  The victim was found to have THC in his system,which may have cause him to act with fatally flawed judgement in failing to heed the officer's commands!

First thing every rooky officer i=s taught  "it's better to be judged by twelve than be carried by six".  It's a tough job requiring split second decisions which may result in someone's life or death.  If someone wants to go home in one piece, don't take foolish chances!  Subjects not complying with repeated voice commands,a fter saying they have a weapon and they are rapidly reaching for something...BAD ending one way or another!   People need to put themselves in the officer's shoes; the jury did!

I should drive down town and see if BLM is gearing up


I disagree Jasmine, from what I saw, He told him he had a gun.
If he was going to shoot the cop, why would he tell the cop he had a gun in the first place?

Probably because he's stupid.

What kind of pansy are you?

White cops are supposed to hunt down and, if possible, kill people of color.

This is still America!

I watched the local news report  out of Minnesota and the dash cam video  showed much of what the officer saw. They said everything happened in a matter of seconds, from the man telling the officer he had a hand gun to the officer repeatedly yelling voice commands at him as he rapidly moved to reach for something and the man failing to comply.  The jury thought it was a reasonable action and the man's actions were not reasonable.  The autopsy revealed THC  in his bloodstream and that may have interfered with the man's judgement. 

Reaching quickly for something and not responding to an officers repeated voice commands to stop, during a traffic stop can get you killed!
