Excuse any errors. Its 1:30am and I am tired.
Seriously this article is a spoiler. I wanted your take on the film (meaning your opinion) not a scene by scene play-out of the entire movie. Why do people do this? It's so annoying.
SIDENOTE:I think the young director was trying to give the victim a face in the midst of all the chaos surrounding the days events that have over shadowed OSCAR GRANT's young misguided life. The film did just that.
I seen the actual video.... and I think that there was excessive forced used. There is never a justifiable reason to shoot a handcuffed man that's laying face-down PERIOD. There also is no justifiable reason to TASE a handcuffed man that's laying face-down PERIOD. SORRY. For anyone that disagrees.... Place handcuffs on yourself and lay face down and have someone TAZE you. Tell me how good it felt to be lucky enough to not be shot even though your in agonizing pain. Because that pain would have been a blessing for Mr. Grant.
Do I think it was intentional? Not necessarily. I can say this though..... this shows flaws in a system that allows people the option to carry guns and tasers that are not responsible enough to do so. If you don't have the smarts to know the differance between the two ....or atleast look before you squeeze the trigger.... you should not be patroling our streets. Its really that simple.
