I'm from slc.....the second this story hit local news, I thought it was a huge indication of how racially biased the media is to jump on one racial bandwagon but not another.
The funny thing is it was a mwag call. Which in utah oc is perfectly legal, which is besides the point as the "gun" he was carrying around ended up being a twizzlers or a beef jerks stick or something like that.
Also, the local news reported that he was surrounded by officers, which would indicate someone could clearly see he wasn't reaching for a weapon.
Couple days after this one, about 15 miles south, a 22 year old kid was shot running away, after the cops were called because he was openly carrying (on his back) a replica katana sword.
That one is still under wraps a month later. Utah has had a fantastic reputation for respectful officers, but these two incidents are definite eyebrow raisers for me.
