KSAT in San Antonio got their hands on a video showing sheriff's deputies in Bexar County, Texas, shooting and killing a man.
The video it appears to show deputies shooting the man while he has his hands up. The video recorded by a viewer that then in turn sold it to the station.
There is no question that the video raising questions in both the suspect and the police actions before the shooting.
KSAT decided to run the raw video on their website. The Bexar Sheriff's office says that in doing so, they put other cops lives in danger.
The police took to social media to condemn the station for posting the video and urged viewers to email and call the station to complain.
"Certainly what's in the video is a cause for concern," Bexar County Sheriff Pamerleau said. "But it's important to let the investigation go through its course so we can ensure a thorough and complete review of all that occurred."
So, one would argue that KSAT made the right call in posting the video in what is surely a questionable shooting.
But, with the police taking on the station and saying that they are putting police in danger, KSAT is now answering some of their own tough questions.
