    HAMILTON - A coroner's inquest found Tuesday that Hamilton Police Officer Ross Jessop was justified in shooting Raymond Thane Davis to death after the Hamilton man opened fire during a late-night traffic stop in January.

    It took a six-woman jury one hour to make its ruling following nearly five hours of testimony, which included a video that showed Davis pointing a pistol inches from Jessop's face and pulling the trigger.

    The click of the revolver's hammer hitting a previously fired round was audible in the recording.

    Davis fired a second time as the officer fell back and drew his own weapon.

    Jessop fired his pistol 14 times into Davis' vehicle as it sped away. One round hit Davis, 36, in the back and he died at the scene.

    Davis' .41 caliber revolver was recovered from the floorboard of his vehicle. Its hammer was cocked and ready to fire.

    This is exactly why they should let police officers have heat vision and super-speed.

    Is an inquest automatic in a shooting? If not, why was there any question about this?

    another future training film showing the danger of not positioning yourself properly -- he should never have been in that position -- right by the drivers side mirror, square to the criminal

    I personally don't have a problem with him unloading his gun into the rear of the vehicle as it speeds away, but I doubt it's the preferred practice

    looks like there was one of those high powered construction lights there. the car rolls into it, probably the bulb popping.

    I hate websites that don't post the state as if you are supposed to know where it is and as if the whole world can't see it. They should add, Montana, USA, and Erf.

    Last time I got stopped on I95 in SC the officer came by the passenger window and scared the shit out of me. He said you seem nervous and I said I wasn't. I didn't think at the time to tell him I was expecting him to come on the other side. He was a nice guy, I asked for a warning and he gave me one. He said I had swerved, but he said he didn't stop me when I swerved, so I don't know, I was prolly reaching for a soda.
