Either the jury was not advised by the judge that they could come up with a different charge, or they did not look at the film and listen to the defendant’s narrative. It is obvious that the officer did NOT have his gun out of his holster until the victim was running away from him. While there are uncertainties, obviously, due to the lies in the testimony of the only person there, a presumption of innocence seems out of place. This is NOT an accident or unjustified use of force. It is, plain and simple, murder.
