This man chose to die. If you resist arrest and then reach into your car for ANYTHING as you actively resist, you DESERVE what you get.
In the back? Absolutely. The jungle can riot all they want. This man caused his own death and police were justified in their response.
And, btw, unlike these racists who defend every black criminal who gets shot... show me this same scenario with a white man and you'll get the same response from me. I couldn't care less about race. God's word says:
Romans 13:1-5 (KJV) Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
