It was indeed a small town in a fairly rural county in a midwestern state. No horses, tho.
I think it is extremely difficult to justify shooting someone in the back of the head when you are on top of him, and he's face down on the ground. The fact that the officer told him to not touch his taser (or whatever) is not really proof that Loyoya was actually going for the taser because unfortunately sometimes cops lie. Unfortunately, Grand Rapids MI has a well documented serious problem with racism and racism on the part of police.
I confess I have not read more about the shooting over the last week or so.
