It is clear that Officer Jeronimo Yanez (the trooper) was not in control, was nervous and acted in a reckless, willful and wanton fashion.

That is incorrect. He had a guy with a gun, who was reaching for an unknown object while disregarding repeated commands (with increasing urgency) to not do so. Any other police officer would have reacted in the same way.

He wasn't fired. They paid him an undisclosed sum of money to leave his job voluntarily.

You can hear the victim clearly saying he isn't reaching for anything. Yanez wasn't qualified mentally to be in the field and obviously didn't cut it as a cop. "Officer safety" has become a buzzword for killing people. It's a dangerous job, which means sometimes you might be in danger. You can't shoot everyone because you are in fear.

Can you prove that? Is there anyone in authority that said that? We can't base our decision on your opinion can we?

I believe he said he wasn't reaching for "it" (meaning the gun).

But he was reaching for "something" (apparently his concealed carry license).

When a cop is urgently telling you not to reach for the gun, you should keep your hands visible and not reach for anything at all.

Based on what? Any other cop would also have opened fire if they thought someone was reaching for a gun.

People are allowed to shoot when they have a reasonable belief that their lives are in danger.
