I think they could avoid shooting the nigger here if they wanted.
He basically isn't aware of their presence and has an almost unloaded pistol. When he turns and realizes the police presence I'm sure he would surrender to a "drop the gun" round of yelling. Also he looks like someone whos is drunk.
Cop should have done the wee wee thingy with the sirens too.
Now go ahead and hate me /pol/
