A police officer’s emotional breakdown after shooting and killing a man was caught on DashCam video and was posted to YouTube after the officer was cleared by a jury at a coroner’s inquest this week.  

Officer Grant Morrison said he thought 38-year-old Richard Ramirez was reaching for a gun.

Ramirez, who was unarmed, was killed during a traffic stop in April 2014. Ramirez was high on methamphetamine, police said, and allegedly disobeyed Morrion’s orders to raise his hands, instead reaching for his waistband.

The full video is below. The officer’s breakdown lasts several minutes, as he is comforted by a fellow officer.

It is recorded on a DashCam video taken from another officer’s camera, starting at about the 1:50 mark. Morrison is often collapsed to the ground, out of the camera frame. At about 4:23, Morrison stands back up and comes back into the video frame. At the 5:00  mark, Morrison starts sobbing.

In February 2013, Morrison killed another suspect, Jason James Shaw, in February 2013. A coroner’s inquest jury found that shooting, which was recorded on a dash cam, was also justified.

After a paid administrative leave, Morrison has returned to active duty. (Source: DailyDot.com)
