If you remember from the original clip he was clearly not following orders and in this clip not shot from a rock you can actually see him struggling with officers and even making a jerking motion with his right arm after the cop screams "he's got a gun, he's got a gun". You'll need to expand and flip the video if viewing from a phone to see that movement. Does this change anyones opinion of what happened here?

I'll be honest, I haven't watched any videos about this situation. Saying that, I'm wondering why he's resisting arrest at all? I would think EVERYONE would have learned by now, over the past several years of instances like these, NOT to do that. The LAST thing I want to do, is give a cop (or anyone for that matter) a reason to take out their weapon. If they pull a weapon, it's because they intend on using it to stop someone permanently.
Secondly, until ALL the evidence is out (meaning the media decides to tell us the COMPLETE TRUTH vs. advancing a liberal agenda first), it's best NOT to rush to a conclusion, no matter how bad it looks on a video. Seeing someone get shot only let's you see part of the facts.
Finally, when you make cops a target, they have no other recourse than to defend themselves. People expect them to be there for protection. But if the same people who advocate violence against cops are the same ones calling them for help, what's a cop to think? That they're being set up in an ambush to be killed. So yeah, their fear for their life is on high alert. Since they carry a weapon, they have zero problems using that to defend themselves, with the law backing them!
Groups like BLM can't go around threatening cops and calling for "open season" on them and then cry foul when someone with a gun is shot by them. I want to see ALL the evidence, ALL the facts, before instantly labeling this cop a bad one.1
