Seattle Police have released body camera video of a deadly officer-involved shooting in north Seattle. The incident started as a traffic stop in the Licton Springs neighborhood at about 5 p.m. Monday. Seattle Police on Thursday evening released footage from five police-worn body cameras and a dash camera showing a man, identified by friends and family as Iosia Faletogo, run from police before struggling with officers and being shot. It happened in the area of Aurora Avenue N and 96th Street. Seattle Police say Faletogo was in possession of a stolen handgun at the time of the shooting. The video released by police was edited to show the chase and subsequent struggle from different officers' perspectives. When asked for additional comment on the footage, Seattle Police Det. Mark Jamieson said the video spoke for itself. Faletogo's family is scheduled to hold a press conference Friday.

Good example of what happens if you keep resisting arrest. He kept trying to grab his gun and they turned his lights out.

Bodycams aren't going to slow the slaughter of the public or help convict cops, they are only going to provide snuff films -- like this one -- for the cop worshippers to ---------- to.

When a guy resorts to cheap dramatic terms like "put his lights out" rather than straight forward "killed", what does it say about the speaker? Is he/she attempting to glamorize the killing?

Why, exactly, did you post this?

Seems like a proper use of force IMO. Slightly stupid to discharge a weapon in a large tussle like that, but the guy was clearly armed.

Snuff film sharing with the other cop worshippers.
