    Police officer shoots man on the sidewalk outside bag claim at Love Field in Dallas. Cops are saying the shootee was involved in a physical confrontation with a woman outside the airport when an officer intervened and shot the man, who was apparently armed with a rock and had been hitting the woman and her car.

    EDIT: Witnesses are saying the man yelled "shoot me, shoot me" at the cop.

    There is the possibility of a 2nd policeman who fired his weapon also.
    Many witnesses are saying they heard 2 shots.

    Can't have a real debate until we know the race of the shooter and shootee.

    The casualness of the bystanders was probably the most shocking part of the video. "Oh, a cop on a Segway is shooting some guy? Well, I'm not losing my place in the taxi line for that!"

    (Also, who flies into Love Field these days!?!)

    The cop was still yelling "stay down!" at the guy after shooting at him eight times. Either he's a terrible shot or he was shooting the T1000.
