Ok. Let's see your evidence.

"With the camera recording, Groubert pulls up without his siren on as Jones is getting out of his vehicle to go into the store. "Can I see your license please?" Groubert asks. As Jones turns and reaches back into his car, Groubert shouts, "Get outa the car, get outa the car." He begins firing before he has finished the second sentence. There is a third shot as Jones staggers away, backing up with his hands raised, and then a fourth. From the first shot to the fourth, the video clicks off three seconds. Jones' wallet can be seen flying out of his hands as he raises them."
Here's my interpretation: The driver followed the cop's directions explicitly. It's unfortunately his wallet was in the car, but is that his fault? No. It's the cop's responsibility to verify the situation and avoid knee-jerk reactions like one clearly observed in the video.
As it is, "Groubert's boss, state Public Safety Director Leroy Smith, called the video "disturbing" and said "Groubert reacted to a perceived threat where there was none" as he fired the officer Friday."
