<p>“He had a completely irrational fear that lead him to shoot an innocent man several times for no reason. Does that mean he was wrong?”</p> <p>Uh I’m gonna go with “yes”.</p> <p>I’m not saying the officer had malicious intent. I can easily believe he really was scared. But I do believe you should be held accountable for your actions especially when those actions senselessly end a life. That’s why we have a manslaughter charge. It doesn’t require malicious intent, just careless actions resulting in death. We can’t just keep excusing cops losing their head and killing people just because they say “I feared for my life”. And you guys know that I’m no cop hater. I believe some high-profile police shootings were justified. But this was not one of them and I’m tired of seeing this wishy-washy bullshit from people who are afraid to admit that cops can ever be in the wrong.</p>: QSearch I have to disagree with part or what you said. Siding with the cop does NOT mean you think Philando's life didn't matter. Just like siding with Philando doesn't mean you hate cops. Those are both pretty simplistic statements. First let me say I do not think that cop should have been a cop to begin with and I don't think he should be a cop after this. A cop with even a slight level of experience would not have reacted in this way and would have likely deescalated rather than pulled his weapon. What I do think, however, is that he was justified in so much that he feared for his life and the jury agreed. Did it have to happen? No! It was sad and should have never happened. But, does that mean either party was wrong? No. It's one of those paradoxical moments where something tragic happened and neither party was likely in the wrong 2 hours ago Like Reply <p>“He had a completely irrational fear that lead him to shoot an innocent man several times for no reason.
