Unless Ohio has a different definition of murder, all they will get is manslaughter at best. I am curious to know why the driver was playing stupid regarding his driver's license.

Why did the prosecutor file murder charges against officer? Think that this will break the prosecutors 100% conviction record ?

I see a lot of issues with this DA. He is obviously only releasing minimal amounts of info to keep his game in pay. Based on the fact there was a second officer at the termination point and I assume he had a body camera and was at the stop. where is that video? If the units had dash cams, where are the videos? If the officer in fact "murdered" the suspect, those two additional angles would support that charge. I have a feeling they don't.

If you look at the angle the officer had while speaking to the suspect, he whould have likely had to shoot at a downward angle to get the suspect. Yet it appeared the angle was more level, just above the window base. Furthermore, he appeared to get up off the ground more to the middle of the street versus closer to the curb. Not to mention, if you take note of the parked car forward of the stop, you can reference the distance. When he appeared to get off the ground, he was closer.

In the end, if the DA misled us, he MUST be disciplined!
