    You didn't say "an unarmed man" in the post i was replying to. You said there was never justification for shooting anyone in the back.

    Fact 1) even the police admit he was unarmed.

    Fact 2) he was shot in the back of the neck.

    Can you find any way to justify that?

    There are many reasons that, based off of only those two facts, shooting someone from behind could be justified.

    Also, please stop saying that he was unarmed.. as it has no relevance to your complaint.

    Please elaborate on what those reasons could be.

    It is relevant. You're the one complaining about me not mentioning if he was armed or not.

    Remember? Here is your quote.

    C'mon, RTH, tell us when it's justifiable to shoot an unarmed man in the back without sounding like Jack Bauer.

    After you "investigate" your idea that it's OK to shoot an unarmed man in the back and find a legitimate reason, make sure to come back and let us know.

    OK?

    It is NOT relevant.. you know why?

    Because unlike silly civilians who think you have it all figured out, police officers and detectives don't have the benefit of hindsight and knowing whether a man is armed or unarmed during a pursuit.

    Understand that?

    So by that logic police can shoot anyone in the back since they're unsure if they're armed or unarmed.

    Wow, that's brilliant!

    That would be incorrect.

    Sigh.. this is like having a discussion with a 5 year old.

    I'll leave you to your protests and chalk doggies..

    And I'll wait for your childish reasoning providing us with a justifiable reason for anyone with a hint of foresight to shoot someone in the back.

    I'll leave you with you Jack Bauer action figures.

    I don't think your idea of shooting people in the back would hold much weight regardless of who it is. But I'm positive if this was one of your family members you'd be signing a different tune.

    I'll leave you with the green smilie face. LOL

    By the way, the green dog was funny, I thought. I'm friends with a guy whose dog was shot by the police. He's a good dude. I assume it was he who drew those figures on the ground. Anyway, I thought it was clever symbolism. I'm pretty sure his dog was innocent too.

    I would think so too, but they shot him in the back so he must have done something wrong. ;)
