No, he wasn't cooperating, which, with a calmer task force would have called for reasonable efforts to gain his cooperation before physical force was used. Like I said in my comment, the squad leader, holding the best position for calming the situation and negotiating a peaceful surrender, appeared to be saying nothing.
I stand by my comment. No experience in law enforcement is needed in order to criticize police action. One would think a "capitalist at birth" would know that.
First, Krauthammer's assertion regarding involuntary manslaughter was actually pretty close to the mark. Negligence is all that needs to be proven in such a case - and that is in the criminal court. In a grand jury, a 51 percent chance that negligence contributed to the death is enough to bring and indictment and order the prosecution to proceed with charges. The video certainly calls into question the standard law enforcement definition of "resisting." Assuming a fetal position while receiving blows from batons is considered "resisting." The writer here uses his phrase "fighting back." In the video, I witnessed no "fighting back" as any sensible person would define it.
The simple answer to the headline is this: If a professional infection control intensive care nurse in Dallas couldn't stay safe, then the they are obviously NOT safe.
It MUST have been a breach in protocol, because, God knows, there can be no other possible explanation.

Well said!
You are just slightly south of delusional, or, you're being ironically humorous and I'm not getting it. Your reference to the genius of Kanye West is what makes me uncertain.
I got the impression from all the posts about it on facebook - complete with Benghazi pictures and comments about crazy Republican conspiracy theories - was that it was fully declassified and laid to rest all suspicions voiced by Republicans - that it "proved" them all wrong. Glad I read this column to remind me that it's only Democrats saying so and the report is still classified!
