Funny if it hadn't killed someone  
Rich white moron pays police to let him do cosplay with them, kills black guy because he can't tell stun gun from gun gun.

Thanx to sciamanna

Supergee's one-sentence summary is of course the police department/sympathetic to the killer story, leaving out that there was no reason other than racism and/or desire to hurt random strangers for him to use a stun gun in this context, even if it really had been a stun gun.

(Some racists specifically want to hurt people; meanwhile, coldly calculating psychopaths are likely to target Black people, because they know it increases their chance of getting away cold and even being praised or financially rewarded for the killing. We may never know whether this particular killer's motivations were racist, psychopath, or both.)

Uniformed trained police officers can make the same moronic mistake. See the shooting of Oscar Grant. And, in both that case and this, even the using of a stun gun would have been completely gratuitous.
