Lyoya wasn't shot because of a traffic violation, it was that he got out of his car during the stop, would not comply with anything the cop said, then resisted arrested for quite a long time and fought with the cop and kept grabbing the cop's taser.  Eventually the victim got a hold of the taser then the cop grabbed his hand and made him drop it during the struggle and I think the victim picked it up again as you can hear the cop yelling to him "drop the taser!" right before the cop shot him.  Black dog conveniently left out all of this information in order to push his victim narrative.

It was in the link I posted.

Anyway, you're missing the point, which is there was literally no reason for the cop to escalate the situation to the point of physical confrontation.

There's lots of times cops abuse their power, but a lot of these examples were brought on by the civilian.  If I ran from a cop or fought with a cop or grabbed their weapon I would assume I could be shot at any time.
