So "hesitating" is justification to shoot? Not in my book.
If I had been pulled over, especially under those circumstances, and police shot my friend while he was unarmed and trying to surrender, I might well conclude they meant to kill everyone there and get the hell away from the situation as fast as possible.
And then they covered it all up, with lies and hiding or destroying evidence. Oregon police even refused to wear body cameras (normally mandatory) during the arrest "to protect the identities of FBI hostage rescue team members". You know what that says to me? Premeditation.
