If you're unintentionally shooting people in the head, maybe you shouldn't have a gun.

If the various police departments do not like how they are portrayed on the nightly news....perhaps, they should try doing something different

Thank God that the spokespeople were able to clear it up for me before I watched the video or else I would have sworn it wasn't unintentional.

If he'd been a redneck chucklehead wearing a MAGA cap and carrying an AR-15 this wouldn't have happened
Clearly it's his own fault, he should have known better

Like the black site Chicago PD used to disappear suspects to in order to torture them.

Cops are organized crime with the blessing of government, nothing more.

In a video including the body camera footage that was produced and released by the LAPD on Friday, Capt. Gisselle Espinoza, an LAPD spokeswoman, said, that "the circumstances of how Montano was struck, and which officer fired the less-lethal projectile that struck Montano, is still under investigation" as an "unintentional head strike."

Bullshiat.

And do it as fast as YOUR expectation because he wasn't walking backward fast enough.

But if not, serious head injury caused by unintentional, less-lethal projectile is your judge and jury.

1. I thought I was watching the hi res version of Duke Nukem 3d.

2. Lets see, a bunch of cops heading to you say leave, and everyone leaves but you?

3. In a south park voice (He was coming at me!) (Thin the herd)

4. Dang that was accurate, I couldn't hit a barn door at that distance with a real gun let alone a giant pellet.

Or we will shoot you in the head.

Does that seem a professional response to lack of compliance. Jumping right to the clitoris eh? No kissing or rubbing the nipples?

They are lagging at least 20-30' behind the rest of the crowd that WERE smart enough to vacate the area... this person and there was another in the video received the inevitable.  Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

I heard, 'leave the area' not 'put your hands up'. If anything, I'd lay down before lifting my hands. I'd also turn around and make them shoot me in the back if that's their goal.

You can see/hear shiat being thrown at the cops. Cop training, right or wrong, is to escalate until the situation ends.

Throw shiat? Out come the rubber bullets, bean bags, and gas. Punch them, they tase you bro. Try to stab one, they shoot you. It's not boxing rules, not intended to be fair

"This next record is dedicated to some personal friends of mine, the LAPD. For every cop that has ever taken advantage of somebody, beat 'em down or hurt 'em, because they got long hair, listen to the wrong kinda music, wrong color, whatever they thought was the reason to do it. For every one of those f*ckin' police, I'd like to take a pig out here in this parkin' lot and shoot 'em in their mothaf*ckin' face."

ROFL.  When they got hit they were standing still but go ahead and paint your false narrative because it better fits whatever deluded mess is inside your head.

Maybe it would have worked for Custer.  "Boys, them injuns are attackin!!  Quick, put your hands up and you'll be fine!"

Problem with that is if the cop is not charged with something people will complain that the feds are protecting the LAPD.
It is truly a no win situation when all someone is looking for is a public hanging justified or not.

Oh, definitely, he totally needed a hemorrhage inducing bolt to the head for not moving as fast as you might have in the same situation.

Brain damage causing strikes to he head is just what needed to make him smarter about it next time.

if it wasn't for Trump, NONE of this 2020 bull shiat would have happened. If a competent, intelligent, empathetic person sat behind the Resolute Desk for the last 4 years, NONE of this would have happened. Including the pandemic which would have been better managed by a small soap dish.

I see an unarmed man with his hands in the air, facing the police officer as he retreats. I also saw police officers, who outnumbered him, wearing bullet-proof tests, face shields and helmets, and wielding weapons. Yet somehow the unarmed man who did not have a bullet-proof vest or a helmet was a threat to the comparatively heavily armed policemen.

The policeman who shot him needs to be prosecuted, and if he is somehow, by some twisted logic, found not guilty of assault, malicious wounding, attempted manslaughter, or any other relevant charge, he should be fired from the force, and banned from serving as a policeman anywhere in the United States, because his bad aim and incompetence in handling his weapon is a threat to public safety.
