Cop Shoots A Man For DUI  has the story.  The video can be seen here,

You should probably go view it now, the video will not be up forever.

The prosecutor says, {...the evidence in this case shows the shooting to be accidental, and possibly negligent, but not criminally so. “This shooting is not justified, but also not criminal."}

Oh Yeah? Take a look and tell me what you see.

First money quote: 

"Ramsey said Feaster drew his gun when Thomas “popped” out of the car, believing he would flee. As Officer Feaster moved towards Thomas, the gun discharged and struck Thomas in the neck. The shot hit Thomas in the C7 and T1 vertebrae and could lead to him being paralyzed for life."

...and then:

"When backup arrived on the scene, Feaster did not mention anything about having fired his weapon. According to Ramsey, Feaster notified his commanding officer about the discharge only after Thomas’ gunshot wound was found." gets better:

"As the commanding officer suggested an investigator return to Canteena and try to find out if Thomas had been shot at the bar, Feaster revealed that he may have shot Thomas.
Ramsey said nearly 11 minutes passed before any other officers, medics or firefighters learned Thomas had been shot."
The policeman simply forgot to tell anyone he had shot a man.
Accidental? Does the shooting look accidental to you? Did the policeman have his weapon pointed at the victim? Did he have his booger hook on the trigger? What if you came upon a DUI crash, and instead of rendering aid, you draw your weapon and attempt to kill the driver? Do you believe for a second the DA or local prosecutor would stretch the benefit of the doubt so far as to call it "accidental", thus all but exonerating you?

The cop shoots a man in the neck who was getting out of the overturned car. The shot man slumps back down into the overturned car, most likely incapacitated from the neck wound.

Then the cop says the man he just shot "refuses to get out of the car?"

...Conveniently forgetting he just neck-shot the dude?

What fucking planet does this pig inhabit?
