Witness to the events, Adam Smolcic, 25, has made some statements that, if true, change the complexion of the incident. [LINK]
Smolcic used his cellphone to record video of the shooting said he believes a police officer on the scene erased his video. He plans to take his phone to a forensics expert to determine whether the video can be retrieved.
Erasing cell-phone video? Duh! I certainly hope that the police officer wasn't actually that foolish. Especially when there are reportedly two other videos of the event.
Smolcic said he was across the street when he saw Hubbard slowly pull a knife from his backpack, and then one of the two officers on the scene pulled out their gun and shot the man. Smolcic said he did not see Hubbard advance toward the officer before he was shot. "No, absolutely not. He was very shaky, but he wasn't making any moves toward the police at all that I saw," he told CBC News.
I hope that there are rational explanations for these reports.
