Bodycam Footage Of San Francisco Police Shooting Sean Moore


The San Francisco Public Defender’s Office released new body cam video showing an officer shooting Sean Moore on Jan. 6, Moore who survived and is reportedly in stable condition, is obviously agitated throughout his interactions with officers Kenneth Cha and Colin Patino. He’s been diagnosed with schizophrenia, according to his family and the public defender’s office. Two officers responded to a neighbor’s complaint in the middle of the night. Moore, 42, was agitated and verbally aggressive while officers asked him in a calm manner to come down from the top of a staircase. Finally, one officer fired pepper spray at Moore. He also inadvertently sprayed his partner, as he fell down the stairs. Moore went back inside the house while the officers continued to tell him to come outside. After a while, he did. Officers continued to yell for Moore tog et down. He came closer, picking up some papers he dropped on the stairs. Then a scuffle ensued. One officer had his baton raised.

The body camera angle distorts the video. The other officer fired off two shots. Public Defender Jeff Adachi believes the officers should have used crisis intervention techniques. “Mr. Moore did not have to be shot and the officers, had they properly used deescalation techniques, would have gone home.” Interim Police Chief Toney Chaplin sees the video differently, saying the officers were assaulted, and used great restraint. “You saw them back down the stairs a couple times,” he said. “One officer, even put his hand up and even backed the other officer up at one point a little bit, to give him a little bit more time.” Chaplin released photos of the two officers and their injuries suffered after the scuffle. Moore is at the county jail, charged with, among other counts, assault on police officers.

    I literally watched an episode of one of those “real life detective” shows and some black kid got charged with murder for something super similar. He was about to get off with self defense, but since at one point during the altercation he had said “come on, bring it” it was shown as an act of aggression. This cop did that MULTIPLE times.. “Cmon, whatchu got! cmon, bring it! cmon lets go then!” uhhh no.. you cant use that street talk trying to egg a fight on and then shoot the guy and claim self defense.

    I gotta say that the officers antagonized the guy at every point. Regardless of the Blackmerican poor language choices…the cops were antagonistic and jockeying for some sort of physical threat from the guy.

    If they cannot enter the residence they should go away. The officers did everything they could to get the guy to make aggressive contact with them.
