This incident doesn't highlight the problem with concealed carry, it highlights an officer that did the wrong thing. I am sure he will be punished legally, financially, and in the court of public opinion.
BTW, my concealed carry training told me to hand over my ID and CC Card first and THEN mention that I am carrying so that the LEO can direct my next move and avoid something like this (even so, the cop was wrong, IMO).

From what I understand is the man told the officer he had a gun first then went reaching around for his wallet after the cop told him not to move. The woman in the car didnt start recording until after the fact he was shot, hopefully they can get the whole video from the body cam to see what happened.

Yes, let it play out more. Many, myself included, were quickly sucked into the lies surrounding Ferguson and Citizen Brown.
On its face it seems the officer panic-fired. That's poor training, lack of skills, fear. Racism has been assumed and added in by, once again, by the president.

SPC Kirk Gilles - He did panic fire. He got off and racial bias was involved.

I saw the video last night. This is why I will never, EVER, EVER carry in public. No matter what BS the NRA spews about an armed citizenry being a safe citizenry, that will never apply to men who look like the man in this video, or myself.

There was a story in the news just a couple of hours before this here in Raleigh of a man taking potshots at passing cars, then shooting at a Sheriff's Deputy who responded to the call. He was taken into custody alive.

I'll let you guess what color his skin wasn't.
