Did the guy turn around?  Yes.  Did he have an unsheathed knife?  It very much looks like that?  Does the interview material coincide with what each of the extended bodycam footage shows for each officer?  Yep.  I realize you're invested in this narrative, but take a step back and look at this for what it is

Not sure how you got that I'm "invested in this" and you can spin it however you want... but the guy didn't need to be shot. Period.  The LEO's were clearly in the wrong.

They are too quick to jump to deadly force, particularly when a black male is involved.

agents of the state murdering civilians and walking is such a goddamn softball for what libertarians portray themselves to be but they just can't help themselves when they see a black man being executed by police. libertarianism is basically just for racists and creeps who want to keep big government away from their filthy hard drives

LEOs job is to protect and serve.  Guy has outstanding warrants for his arrest and one includes aggravated assault.  He's now fleeing the police after initial contact and breaks out a knife.  At that point, it really doesn't matter if he's lunging at the throat of a cop or not.  He's running down a sidewalk.  He paused and turned with the knife and it cost him his life.  Let's say he keeps running from cops and someone walks out of a convenience store and he's now going to use that person as a hostage.  Whether it be a car, knife, gun, motorcycle, bat, etc...the point the person breaks it out there is a decision that has taken place where the job of the LEOs is to remove a threat to society.  It's not to play two hand tag.  Do I wish we had better non lethal means?  Absolutely.  Problem is that it has to be instantaneous and highly effective otherwise we risk the lives of LEOs and the public.  

Hate to see another dude killed...period.

idk why cops bother to lie on police reports. video and audio can directly contradict their bullshit stories and "small government conservatives" will still trip over themselves to defend the literal enforcement arm of the state when it's a black person being executed. this is exactly why people on the left shouldn't try to play by their dumb rules. don't be afraid to call these shitheads racist. it's abundantly clear.

Hope they get arrested.  I know he did follow the rules but this does not grant them a right to shoot.  This cop better be charged.

If someone breaks in my house, I'm not allowed to shoot them in the back.  I will get arrested and charged.  Why can cops do that?

It's a shame that recent gaffes in the sports world have taken away from real issues like this. I hope we see plenty of kneeling again this weekend.

If the media raised hell like they do when it comes to Cam for MORE SERIOUS issues like this, then maybe we could get somewhere. Instead, they will deflect and tell players to "get over it" and then roll another segment about how Cam is a sexist smh People need to get their godamn priorities straight.

What arrest? The DA has already concluded that it was justifiable use of force and the officers involved have been cleared. America where u can die for your bicycle not having a light.

Read the report.... it matches the cameras from what can be discerned.  You are delusional.  Then again, maybe you should lecture us on how we should melt all the guns and turn them over unilaterally to these guys you are railing against.

Yet again..... you..... are not..... reading..... anything..... 

Here's another body cam:

:45 mark.... what do you see?  The entire time from Mr. Harmon bolting away from being cuffed to shots being fired was a grand total of.... wait for it..... 5 seconds.  First shots were fired at marker.... wait for it... :46

Sitting back picking this apart months later with multiple times to go over everything with the benefit of hindsight and you are claiming that you are convinced that your 1 second of judgement without those benefits are any better?
