And we all appreciate your reporting on both sides of the coin.
As you note, I started a police "good shooting thread," (which didn't garner a lot of interest, and instead apparently a lot of hostility.)
I also have a post or two to this thread that point out incidents where police were exonerated from accusations of malfeasance when the video of the incident was reviewed.
Detail about an earlier story:
“My dad exited the bathroom, went around the corner, and I immediately heard multiple shots, which I thought was my dad engaging these other people in the house,” Hayashi said. “There was a pause, and then I hear people start screaming, ‘Police!’ and I hear people enter the house.
BANG BANG BANG. "Police! Drop the weapon!"

As described previously, when a citizen is shot by police, the policy is to let them bleed out:
“And as I turned the corner, my dad is face down … and he’s handcuffed. And I reached down and – I don’t remember if I touched his shoulder or his face – but he looked at me and I got pushed off by an officer out the door,” Hayashi said.
“It’s just disgust and shame. Sunday morning, had you asked my son what he thought about police officers, he would have told you they are the baddest dudes ever,” Hayashi said, noting that the boy had been at a police camp a week earlier. “Now all he can think about is police shot his grandfather. And he saw his grandfather handcuffed and he can’t understand why they wouldn’t help him. He’s just traumatized.”
Pinales and another neighbor said they didn't hear any gunshots from the second floor where the man had lived. The first shots they heard, both women said, sounded as if they came from the porch where the man's body lay.

Very strange - police get calls of gunfire, and rush in blasting away. However, the only shots the neighbors heard were that of the police.
There was AN INVESTIGATION. We Waited For It.
