Did a Santa Ana cop shoot an unarmed man who was running away?

“The man shot and killed by Santa Ana police officers on Friday was unarmed and running away from police who had stopped the car he was riding in, the car’s driver said Saturday,” according to the O.C. Register.

This guy was a bad guy with a long record, but this shooting, which happened in Santa Ana’s Sandpointe Neighborhood, comes on the heels of another recent incident where a woman was shot and killed by an SAPD officer, with a baby in her car.

What is going on in Santa Ana?  Have our cops finally flipped with all the crime they have to deal with?  Is this some kind of aberration of crazy macho trigger-happy behavior?  Or are these cops innocent?

Somehow I doubt that the SAPD will tell us the truth.
