Finally


I've been on a rant about this case since it happened. A cop fired 41 shots into the vehicle of an unarmed man after a chase.

But manslaughter?  That's the "reckless" killing of another individual.  In its simplest terms, it means that a person didn't intend to kill another (that's murder) but instead killed another by doing something so stupid when he knew there was a risk of that death occurring but made a decision to disregard that risk and continue on with his stupidity. Example: Driving through a school zone at 90 mph in a school zone.

I'm pretty sure the officer meant to kill the guy.

Story.
