His back was to the cops for a good six seconds before he opened the driver's side door. The cops allowed him to control the situation up to the point where they shot him. You may have a point there. I know precious little about police procedure, I just know what makes sense. I'm not sure what you mean by rolled up, but if he had already gone for one of their guns I know that they are trained to let him go, back up, and train their weapons on him while giving him orders not to move. That seems entirely reasonable to me, and if that's what happened then they don't have time to holster their weapons and go try to tackle him without putting themselves at serious risk of him evading them and getting to a weapon especially a gun in his car Quote One set of rules for all in The Beloved Community "The word racism is like ketchup.
