,, in the general public what went down. Fella got shot dead w/o any good reason, or not, there's no reason to expect to learn which.
Allegedly there's video of the final moments of this guy's life. Video suppressed in fear of civil lie-ability?
Wild Axe guessing, Cal's lawyers hope officers shot first and asked questions later escapes scrutiny.
Let's wait for all the facts to come out before we go off on some conspiracy theory, shall we? If the suspect pointed the gun in the general direction of the police, then there's no need to worry about being scrutinized. In the end, the video is coming out anyway, so the authroities might as well as release it.
