Oakland police justified in killing unarmed man

Something about the police report doesn’t sit right with me. Who would run away from police with their hands in their waistband while trying to jump a fence? What is very common for people in possession of this dangerous plant, is to reach into their pocket in an effort to discard their paraphernalia before the police catch up to them. All too often that rational action leads to Tasing, beating or death at the hands of police. Should people have to discard certain possessions of theirs out of fear that others are going to kidnap, assault or kill them?
