For discussion: Was this a proper police response? If so, on what basis? If not, why not?

Officer Inside Patrol Car Fatally Shoots Unarmed Man

A Des Moines police officer fired her service weapon through the rolled-up window of her patrol car on Tuesday night, fatally shooting an unarmed man said to be charging at her car, according to police.

Ryan Keith Bolinger, 28, of West Des Moines, died at the scene from a single gunshot to the torso. Police and witnesses said he led two officers on a slow chase through northwestern Des Moines Tuesday evening that ended with Bolinger exiting his vehicle and coming toward the squad car.

"He was walking with a purpose," Sgt. Jason Halifax of Des Moines Police said following a press conference Wednesday on the shooting.

Senior Police Officer Vanessa Miller, a seven-year veteran, fired the round that killed Bolinger. Miller was assisting Senior Police Officer Ian Lawler, also a seven-year veteran, in the pursuit of Bolinger's vehicle after a bizarre confrontation involving an unrelated vehicle stop that Bolinger interrupted.

If it happened just like that it is way wrong she could have driven away and then got out etc

However as we have found out time and time again here. That when the facts come out they are usally very different than the first media reports

Gentle college bound kid shot with hands in the air trying to surrender comes to mind among many others

Did the officer say stop or freeze? What was the intent of the chase? Without knowing this, I would say excessive because there's no other proof to say otherwise.

You trying really hard to get my attention nowadays. I know the time change is killing you, but we must learn to adjust :devil:
