Officer charged with second-degree murder for shooting Canadian teen armed with knife

Resource: http://www.guns.com/2013/08/20/officer-charged-with-second-degree-murder-for-shooting-canadian-teen-armed-with-knife-video/
When I first seen the video it was chaotic and somewhat confusing but with time the details came out and when they did the officer was charged with second degree murder and I believe the charges fit . The facts speak for then self and you have to ask yourself was it necessary to shoot or was the cop just tired of dealing with a mentally disturbed man. He had a knife BUT he was on a trolley by himself and couldn’t go anywhere for one. Not only was he shot 3 times standing but there was a 3-5 second delay and then a volley of 6 more shots when he was down on the floor AND then was tasered.

This was clearly unnecessary force and because of it he is now charged with 2nd degree murder
