Why Order a Guy to Get On the Ground After You've Killed Him?

Middle of the night.   Guy hears a ruckus at his door.   Grabs a golf club.  Cops enter - bang, bang, bang.   Guy drops, dead.   Cops approach and order the corpse to "get on the ground."

Watch it yourself.   Do you think all these cops with their helmets and all that ballistic body armour, well back from their victim, were even remotely in danger from the guy's golf club?  Or do you think it's judicial murder?

If you take a cruise on YouTube for these types of Police abuses, you might be completely horrified to find out how common they are in the USA.

Thanks for the warning. When this shooting is ruled justifiable I suppose there will be no end to this type of killing.

Actually it has already been ruled as a justified shooting. The family is now pressing for federal charges.
