Bodycam Footage Shows Police Kill Unarmed Man for Driving in Reverse

by | Apr 6, 2017

Oklahoma, OK — Ordering a deceased man to get his hands up is just about as futile as convincing some law enforcement officers it is not justified to shoot unarmed civilians. But that’s precisely what the Oklahoma Law Enforcement officers commanded 38-year-old George Lee Seeton to do, immediately after they fatally shot the fleeing suspect on March 4th. Now, with the release this week of the patrolman’s body camera footage, the public can know precisely just how he died.

Seeton, who’s a convicted felon, reportedly stole the brown truck and was attempting to make his getaway. Trooper Mike Moler, and OKC Police Officer Jarrod Jackson pursued the truck, eventually exiting their squad cars when Seeton ran off the road and into someone’s yard. The suspect then put his truck in reverse, apparently attempting to back into the street to continue his getaway. That’s when both officers opened fire, killing him. The shouts for him to get his hands up fell on deaf ears as it seems Mr. Seeton had already succumbed to his gunshot wounds.

Oklahoma officials released the body camera footage this week revealing Seeton’s final moments on this earth. The shooting, accompanied by the various camera angles, will undoubtedly lead to a deeper discussion as to whether or not officers can claim a suspect was trying to kill them by putting their car in reverse in an attempt to get away.
