I have been following this since I saw it yesterday morning, and I have heard that the Police department is charging him with murder and the death penalty was an option. I have seen the video and it is a pretty clear picture of what happened. I also heard this morning that even if the felon flees the cop does NOT have the right to use deadly force as the supreme court ruled on that years ago as being not an option. The cop could have chased him down, could have called back-up, hell could have let him go since he already had the car and could find his address from the records. Deadly force was not an option that the cop had in this instance and what he did was excessive force and uncalled for in something as minor as a routine traffic stop.
