WARNING: This video is graphic in nature and shows police shooting a man multiple times

Reddit user Tirith uploaded a video he recorded on his home street in Poland of police confronting and eventually shooting an agitated man armed with what looks like a tire iron and a knife of some sort. While the man was clearly aggressive and agitated it seems as if this confrontation could have been handled better by the police officers. Clearly at some point in the video the man throws his second (and seemingly last) weapon at the cops and takes off running. Unless the police had incredibly bad aim the man had already been shot a few times by the time he takes off running. I can’t imagine he would have been that hard to take down.

Apparently, according to this article in Polish: http://www.gazetalubuska.pl/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140714/POWIAT04/140719776, what I can figure out according to Google Translate is that the guy lives and apparently wasn’t even shot until he was running away and then he was only shot in the legs.

I’m not sure I believe that. He definitely looks unconscious, if not dead, at the end of that video. He’s not moving at all and you would think someone who was alive and conscious who had just been shot at least once in the leg would be writhing in pain.
