I think that he turned his body the way he did was because his bike was still in gear and he had is hand on the clutch.

cops are getting worse on making the right decisions. looking at the video.... the police officer comes out and shoots the guys soon as he comes out off the cop car. now.... i have taking off from a stop light and not knowing that a cop was right behind me the whole time. i wasn't trying to run i was not looking back at that time... same thing here. the police comes out of the car and shoots the guys like they have been running from him for a while.?!?!?!
they were chilling the whole time and one of them takes off and hits a curve mean while the other rider who did nothing wrong gets shot!!
this is fuking bull !!

running from LEO makes it a felony stop vs a normal stop.

if you look at the video closely youll see he doesn't move his hand at all, his arm drags his body as he turns to look at the cop thats yelling at him

i hope that cop gets convicted. you cant just go around shooting people in the back on baseless assumptions.

on my understanding about a police officer using a gun is due to HIS LIFE is in dangerous. there is no way in here that this was the case. just a stupid fuking cop that thinks that he got a badge that he can shoots whoever he wants.
two tickets would have been better off then just pulling the trigger here.

i have 4 good friend of my that are HPD. i'll ride with them most of the time and if they pull you over and you are not an trying to get off the ticket then they will let you go off with a warning. (been there, done that) type of thing.
why would you pull your gun in the first place in here!!???
i guest out of all those days for training at the academy they really your brain up really good that by the time you come out off the academy you come out really fuked up already. thinking that everyone got a gun and always have to look out

NO... yes you are a stupid fuking from running. i agree but they took off...... probably didnt know that it was a cop behind them the whole time.
so.... is it right?? if you want to run from a police officer due to whatever reasons...... you are saying that they should shoot your down if they catch you ???or........ just take you to jail once you have given up..
tell me MR. RICERX WITH your experience>>>

After hearing his partner testify it sounds like the cop who fired the shot knew he f*cked up.

Didn't even look like they ran. When they took off from the stop it didn't look like the cops lights were on. Looks like they stopped within a reasonable amount of time.

That's some messed up . I hope that cop gets what he deserves.
