The negro was armed and fleeing. Was the cop supposed to wait for the nog to take cover and fire on the police before the police opened fire?
Were they supposed to allow an armed nog clearly afraid of being caught in his criminal behavior to escape into the public?
Disturbing surveillance video shows a white Nashville police officer fatally shooting a black suspect as he runs away.
Officer Andrew Delke can be seen opening fire on 25-year-old Daniel Hambrick following a traffic stop on July 26. Hambrick was armed at the time, according to police, but he does not appear to turn around to face the officer before he was shot.
“I just want justice for my son,” Vickie Hambrick said during a press conference with the local NAACP. “That’s all I’m asking. And for all the young black guys and young women, I want justice for them. I love them all.”
Wednesday’s release of the video prompted calls for Delke’s dismissal as well as criminal charges against the officer.
“If there ever is a case of premeditated first-degree murder, this is it. This is it,” Hambrick family lawyer Joy Kimbrough said. “He stops and takes his time and makes sure he gets a good shot.”
Of course he lined up the shot. You see, this cop really didn’t have much of an option. His choices were to take the shot or wait for the colored chap to take cover and shoot from a better position.
Would the family rather the cop take a poorly aimed shot or get into a shootout, resulting in unnecessary pain and suffering in the negro?
Would the public rather he take a poorly aimed shot and hit a bystander?
