Good cop, bad cop? Police shooting caught on tape, but there's more...

From the video I can't say for sure if the shooting was justified or not. It would appear so, given that the man who was shot dead by police was wanted, and allegedly struck an officer using his car as a deadly weapon as he slammed his way through traffic in true GTA fashion. (Perhaps time will tell if it was in fact a justified shooting though, considering that being an alleged criminal does not necessarily justify a death sentence.) What is more apparently disturbing about this case though right off the bat, is that the police were ready to shoot an innocent bystander who happened to capture that fatal shooting on his cellphone camera. Which of course leaves one wondering, if the police themselves were actually convinced that their fatal shooting was justified.

Another angle from youtube, shot be another person above the scene:

An eyewitness to a fatal police shooting in Miami Beach last week claims police officers attempted to confiscate the video he filmed of the incident, and even crushed his phone underfoot in an attempt to destroy the recording.

Narces Benoit says he just happened to be in the area driving with his girlfriend when police fatally shot an erratic driver early Memorial Day morning.

He said after the disturbance started, he pulled over his truck, and started recording with his cell phone camera capturing the shooting.

"When he noticed me recording, one of the officers jumped in the truck, put a pistol to my head," he said. "My phone was smashed - he stepped on it, handcuffed me."
