Absolutely 100 percent MURDER ! Even his boss called it murder. That boy needs to be put in general population at the closest penitentiary . This cop, “And I use the word cop lightly” was not dragged as he claimed he was to arriving officers. Even if that man took off, deadly force was not warranted . His family will and should be well compensated .

To be clear, the standard set out by Graham v. Connor is:

[t]he "reasonableness" of a particular use of force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene, rather than with the 20/20 vision of hindsight. The calculus of reasonableness must embody allowance for the fact that police officers are often forced to make split-second judgments—in circumstances that are tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving—about the amount of force that is necessary in a particular situation. The test of reasonableness is not capable of precise definition or mechanical application.

So the standard is, would a reasonable police officer have used this level of force in the heat of the moment of this situation. Not "would a reasonable police officer who watched this video a bunch of times in slow motion" have used this level of force.
