The dude who called you that was obviously high on crack because the guy was 20 yards away holding a little knife and they shot him six times and then beanbagged the crap out of his dead body and sicked a dog on him all the while yelling like a bunch of little girls, "he's still got the knife, he's still got the knife!" Did anybody there have even half of a freakin testicle? Maybe just enough of one to get within tazer range? I'm surprised they didn't bayonet the corpse. Oh, but wait a minute...if they'd tazed the dude then they wouldn't have had the fun and thrill of being able to shoot and kill him.
If the homeless guy had pulled a gun--any kind of gun
--BB gun, cap gun, stun gun, water pistol--I wouldn't have had a problem with them wasting him.
As it stands, this video could serve as a demostration of wartime procedure for covering an enemy combatant who appears to be surrendering. If he twitches the wrong way, you blow him to Venus and nobody cares.
