Body Cam Of The Fatal Shooting Of Ronald Davis - Was It Avoidable?

Body Cam Of The Fatal Shooting Of Ronald Davis - Was It Avoidable??
Ronald K. Davis was shot and killed by St. Paul Minnesota police on September 15th. And yesterday the police finally released the body cam footage, which shows the deadly shooting.

Here is the link to the video

The video shows that Ronald rear-ended a St. Paul police squad car, then he immediately ran toward the officer.

Officer Steven Mattson had on his body camera. The camera was constantly moving though - so you couldn't see what came next. But you could hear the officer say, “Holy (expletive).” 

A witness, however, claims that he saw Ronald struggle with the officer, and throw him to the ground.

Seconds later, it appeared that Ronald, 31, had a knife in one hand and a flashlight in the other as he continued to run at the officer.

Officer Mattson then shouted, “Get away from me. Drop the knife. Drop the (expletive) knife. Drop the knife!,” and then he shot Davis.

The entire encounter lasted only 13 seconds. Ronald Davis was pronounced dead at the scene.

Although we have become accustomed to our young black people being executed by police, it is clear that this shooting could not have been avoided. Our young people these days are either battling mental issues or dug addiction. It's evident that this young man was suffering from some type of sickness. God bless his family and may he rest in peace. This is so sad.

There is no way anyone can say that this shooting was avoidable. That cop didn't even get to stand on his feet and access the situation when dude came running at him full speed with a knife in hand. For once I truly feel that this was justified and we will never know what was going through this brother's mind because he had to know that this wasn't gonna end well.
