Daniel Shaver, unarmed man killed by Arizona police officer, cried and begged for life before shooting

An unarmed man who was shot and killed by an Arizona police officer in January cried, complied with police orders and begged for his life before the fatal firing, according to a newly released police report.

Mesa Police Officer Philip Brailsford has been charged with second-degree murder for the death of Daniel Shaver, a 26-year-old Texas man. Authorities have declined to release Brailsford’s body cam footage from the deadly encounter.

But a report released Tuesday includes extensive description of the footage, detailing Shaver’s desperate final moments before Brailsford fired five shots at him with an AR-15 rifle.

Brailsford’s body cam shows Shaver appeared to making small jerking motions while he had his hands behind his back, according to the report.

An officer yelled at him, “If you do that again, we are shooting you. Do you understand?”

“No, please don’t shoot me,” Shaver said

2. Unfortunately we have allowed police to think of themselves as judge, jury and executioner

and while this one is being charged, most arent.

I see the victim is white and the police-person is being charged.

How often are police-persons charged when the victim isnt white?

Am I looking at the right pictures?

3. God! Click on the link of the photo of the cop.

You know he was just itching to shoot somebody.

How do these sadistic bullies get to be cops with the power of life and death.

Wake up cop apologists, it's not just black people they're killing now. The police state is in full effect.

Holey mother of god!! "You're F---ed" etched on his rifle, and none of his co-workers or superiors thought that might indicate a problem???

The PD departments seem to be recruiting from the bottom of barrel in terms of mental health.

8. From everything I've read about the incident...

it was cold blooded murder.

Making it even more maddening, the POS in blue was stunned that he was even charged, claiming he did nothing wrong.

9. Wow. The footage must be horrible if they won't release it. Maybe afraid it will cause unrest.

 

This is the wrong way to weed out the pigs from the cops. Should never come to this imo.

10. I think it becomes public record after it is used at trial.

Maybe not if the guy takes a plea deal.
