If you act like you are pointing a gun at cops, you might die…

Is this tragic? Yes.

Police said the man had refused to comply with instructions to remove a hand from his pants pocket and paced back and forth before rapidly drawing an object from the pocket.

Some protesters said he was shot while his hands were raised in the air, though police disputed that and produced a single frame from the cellphone video to back their account.

The image showed the man in what police called a “shooting stance.” His hands were clasped together and he was pointing directly at an officer who had assumed a similar posture a few feet away. That officer fired his handgun and a second officer, farther away, simultaneously fired his electric stun gun, Chief Jeff Davis said.

Is this completely reasonable? Yes.

The fatal police shooting of a Ugandan refugee who drew something from his pocket and extended his hands in a “shooting stance” happened about a minute after officers in a San Diego suburb arrived at the scene where a mentally unstable man was reportedly walking in traffic, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

It took police more than an hour to respond because of other calls, El Cajon Lt. Rob Ransweiler said. Officers arrived at a parking lot next to a Mexican fast-food restaurant at about 2:10 p.m. and the man was shot about a minute later.

Mayor Bill Wells said he was concerned about the short time from the officers’ arrival to the shooting, though he said video taken by a bystander was enlightening and he didn’t think it was “tremendously complicated to figure out what happened.”

This is all you need to know.

That will get you killed.

And of course, protesters lie. Constantly…

Just like Mike Brown.
