Pretty tragic stuff and clearly wrong on so many levels from the accused gamer however if the last couple of years are anything to go by, cops in the US are pretty much given carte blanch to execute unarmed civilians.
Check out the recent Dean shaver/Philip brailsford shooting, the video was recently made public. I will warn you it's graphic as hell but shows a drunken sobbing man, on his knees, begging for his life while cops scream condradictory orders at him while threatening to kill him. Shaver makes the slightest of moves with one arm while crawling and was shot 5 times by Brailsford from his personal use AR-15 which had the inscription "You're F***ed" on the barrel.
Brailsford was cleared of any charges.
