This article neglects to include very important information that demonstrates the police were justified in their actions:

*Cole was shot outside of the Mayfair Mall on February 2 after police responded to a report of a man who was seen with a gun. According to Chisholm's report, Mensah arrived at the scene, began the pursuit of two subjects, and fired several shots at Cole after he aimed a handgun at him. Chisholm said evidence showed that Cole was in possession of a stolen 9mm handgun.*

Nobody can reasonably expect an officer not to protect themselves when a suspect points a firearm at them.

Who knows, maybe the cops put a gun in his hand after he is dead!
