A Tulsa police officer shot and killed a man reporting she could not see his hands. I know heightened adrenaline gives tunnel vision, but even the helicopter could tell his hands were up. I don’t know what was being said or if commands were being followed, but non-lethal force should be employed before shooting someone if their hands are in plain site. The videos are graphic and so here is a link to them. The takeaway, as always, is to comply with officer commands no matter what. That will lessen your chances of being shot by an officer in all instances.
