New Footage of BART Cop Shooting

Five days after a cop fatally shot a young man at the Fruitvale BART station, the officer still hasn’t offered a statement explaining his actions, and BART officials haven’t forced him to. Meanwhile, attorney John Burris has obtained a new cell phone video of the shooting, which you can see at the Chron‘s Web site here. And once you see it, you’ll immediately see why the officer hasn’t said anything: the guy just fucked up. It’s clear from the body language of both the cop and the other officers that everyone was shocked when the shot rang out. The cops recoil from the shooter, who looks around as if he just made the biggest mistake of his life. Which, of course, he has.
