The police officer, whose body camera was somehow turned off, said he had or was trying to grab the taser. That may be true. There is no actual evidence Loyoya had a taser when he was shot, aside from the officer saying so on audio just before he shot him point blank in the back of the head.Not his violence. It is very very very hard to call it self defend when it involves shooting someone in the back of the head at point blank range when you are on top of him, and he’s face down and unarmed.
You're being deliberately blind here--the taser. You can't say "unarmed".
I would MUCH prefer to believe that it was a justified shooting. I truly would.
Unfortunately there are too many cases of police officers lying to justify their actions.
