The guy was fighting with two cops, took the cops taser, ran and turned with the taser firing it at the officer. Another case where the guy would be alive and probably home with his family if he just chose not to fight the police in the first place. If he fires the taser at the officer in an effort to incapacitate him, then the officer has to assume he is doing that to steal his gun and kill him. He already showed he will steal a taser to get away. The cop maybe didn’t even know his taser was stolen and when the guy turned and fired it the officer may have thought is was a gun. Who knows?
