Bodycam footage shows Utah police shoot man as he runs away

Bodycam footage shows Utah police shoot man as he runs away

The Salt Lake City Police Department is the latest US police department to come under scrutiny after bodycam footage shows an officer shooting and killing a man, even as the man appeared to be running away.

An officer shot and killed Patrick Harmon, a 50-year-old black man, as he was being arrested on the evening of August 13.

On Wednesday, after a seven week investigation, the Salt Lake County district attorney concluded the officers' use of deadly force was justified because the officers said they feared Harmon was going to hurt them, according to a letter the district attorney sent to the Salt Lake County Sheriff and the city's police chief detailing his investigation into the incident.

Bodycam footage shows Harmon running away from police before he is shot by Salt Lake City police Officer Clinton Fox. The officers later said Harmon threatened them with a knife.

...Harmon was stopped by a police officer on the evening of August 13 after he rode a bicycle across six lanes and a median, according to a narrative laid out by the district attorney, Sim Gill. Harmon was required to have a "red rear tail light on his bicycle," the officer told him....

One of the things that many right-wingers don't comprehend is that a lot of "the protest" revolves around what happens AFTER a problem like this.
For the most part, the cop walks after a menial investigation. The blue shield goes up and society looks the other way.

THAT is one aspect of the problem.

Anybody who refuses to admit that serious problems with race don't exist is being purposefully obtuse and blind.

Another part of the problem, cops, like doctors and lawyers, cover each others' asses.

Cops above everyone else should demand that officers such as the one who shot this man running away three times in the back should be barred from ever being a cop anywhere.

Couldn't' agree with you more.

I truly believe the MAJORITY of policemen are not going to behave in a violent or murderous fashion.

But, for some reason, their good intentions and backgrounds get shot to hell when confronted with the duty of reporting a fellow officer for gross misconduct.

Stupid rhetorical question.

Who cares? Just shoot the son of a bitch in the back three times. Shoot him as he runs.
