Injustice in OKC?

State Autopsy Finds Man Shot In Back 4 Times While Running From Police


Source: Jonathan Scott/NewsOk An Oklahoma medical examiner’s autopsy released Tuesday says Mark Salazar, 22, was shot six times in the back, leg and arm while running away from Oklahoma City police officers. Tuesday’s report appears to provide a different account of the shooting than that presented by Oklahoma City police after the event. Shortly after the incident, Oklahoma City police said Sgt. Ryan Stark, the dog’s handler, shot Salazar after unsuccessfully trying to separate Salazar from the dog. Kye died the next day after complications during surgery. According to the medical examiner’s report, Salazar was running away from Stark when he was shot a total of six times — four times in the back, once in his left arm and once in his left thigh.

The Salazar family is anxious for the police investigation to wrap up. They are preparing for news from the district attorney about how the law will label Salazar’s death.
District Attorney Greg Mashburn expects to make a decision in the next week about whether Sgt. Stark was justified in the shooting death of Mark Salazar.
So the OKC police are investigating an OKC police officer?
(Correction - Neighboring county police are investigating.)  
If that's the case, what can we expect?

"The shooting of the fleeing suspect six times in the back was completely justified."

Using the same logic, if a gang member shoots a police officer six times in the back, killing him, it should be investigated by fellow gang members.
(Correction - Neighboring county fellow gang members.)
And what would we expect the investigation to conclude?

" The shooting of the fleeing officer, six times in the back, was completely justified."

you might like this:

A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and
lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs
to pick one for the night.

As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs next
door to pay his debt to the butcher.

(Stay with this..... and pay attention)

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to
the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
supplier, the Co-op.

The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local
prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her
"services" on credit.

The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel

The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the
traveler will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms
are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.

No one produced anything. No one earned anything. However, the whole town
now thinks that they are out of debt and there is a false atmosphere of
optimism and glee.

And that, my friends, is how a *"government stimulus package"* works!
