Re: BART cop gets away with murder

When a police officer is dealing with an extremely stressful situation as this, they will fall back on their training. In such situations, perceptions of time and space get skewed; rational thought takes a back seat to the fight or flight response, and when the adrenaline is pumping, the grip of a service pistol will feel the same as that of a Taser. It doesn't mean the officer's actions are right, but IMO the burden ought to fall on the deceased individual who, if I'm not mistaken, was resisting arrest and caused the situation to escalate, thus leading to the slip-up.
