    A dash cam video from the officer who shot and killed Native American woodcarver John T. Williams was released Friday, showing Williams ambling slowly across the street in a crosswalk before the officer opens fire.

    Although most of the action takes place off-screen, Williams is seen walking across the street in front of the patrol car in the video, dated Aug. 30.

    The patrol car starts to pull forward, then stops.

    Officer Ian Burke can then be seen walking after Williams and shouting, "Hey, hey, hey! Put the knife down! Put the knife down!"

    The officer walks off-screen and then five shots ring out in rapid succession, killing Williams.

    Birk's badge was later pulled after a Seattle Police Department Review Board and Chief John Diaz reached a preliminary finding that Williams' shooting was not justified.

    A judge ruled Thursday that the clip from officer Ian Birk's car could be released to the public after prosecutors had a chance to notify witnesses not to view the tape.

    The tape's release comes after a public disclosure request from the Seattle Times.

    An inquest into Williams' shooting death by Officer Ian Birk has been set to begin on Jan. 10. The facts of the case will be laid out in the open through the process.

    The guy was sitting on a concrete fence whittling a little wooden doll head with a tiny knife under 3.5 inches.

    There are reports that the suspect only turned around to look at the officer - and didn't threaten the officer with the little knife. Yet he was gunned down like an animal.

    5 shots? seriously?

    whether the officer was in immediate danger or not, i cant see the justification in firing 5 shots at the guy in 1 second. this cop should be terminated immediately.

    If you listen, later in the clip, the cops roll the (dead by then?) body over, and cuff him. That's right, they cuff a guy they shot 5 times, and then ask the cop if HE'S alright.

    That cop got him a trophy that day. He probably went home and laughed about it. When will cops be held responsible for their despicable actions?

    I'm glad the cop is okay.

    I used to live in Denver. Cops in Denver love to shoot people.
