How dare you ride your bike in my city

On 22 July 2006, Minneapolis Police Officer Jason Andersen allegedly murdered Fong Lee.

According to eye witnesses Anderson used his squad car to strike Lee's bicycle from possibly knocking Lee down.

Lee, no doubt fearing for his life, attempted to run away. Andersen then shot Lee, in the back, four times.

Andersen, being the merciful person that he is, then shot Lee another four times as Lee lay dying.

MPD put a lot of Bill O'Reilly Spin Free spin on it, and pinned a medal of valor on Andersen.

How are they justifying this?

The question is whether Lee had a gun or not. Looking at the video, Lee is clearly fleeing.
The footage conveniently pans off Lee towards Cop Andersen as Andersen fires his pistol.
I don't think it is far out to think MPD would plant a gun and say Lee had it.
