Death Penalty for "Walking With Purpose"

When did police officers become spun-sugar snowflakes terrified of their own shadows?
I don't care if this guy was running toward the patrol car screaming "die, bitch, die."  He was UNARMED.

What does "walking with purpose" even mean? I was always taught to walk briskly with good posture and as though I had somewhere to go when I walked to avoid being targeted by rapists and things.

But for Ryan Keith Bolinger, that meant being shot dead by a cop.
A veteran police officer shot and killed an unarmed man this week in Des Moines, Iowa, after firing through the rolled-up window of her patrol car. Police say the man, identified as 28-year-old Ryan Keith Bolinger, “walked with purpose” toward officer Vanessa Miller’s vehicle when she fired the fatal shot.
