The issue is disproportionate police response to offenses allegedly committed. Did they really need to dispatch 5 police officers to deal with a man who was allegedly selling lose cigarettes? On the surface, it seems like a waste of police resources.
There was a time when police used deadly force in response to deadly force. Now, it's sufficient for a police officer to merely fear for his safety before firing his weapon or using a choke hold to subdue a suspect.
It's funny how little has been said about the paramedics who were on the scene of this incident who did not even attempt to revive the deceased.
That's a big part of this story that has gone under reported.
