San Bernardino Deputy to Face Trial In Videotaped Shooting

San Bernardino deputy to face trial in videotaped shooting Desert Channel 3 News

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. A judge has ruled that a former sheriff's deputy who was videotaped shooting an unarmed man must stand trial for attempted voluntary manslaughter.

Judge Michael Smith says there is enough evidence to try former San Bernardino County deputy Ivory J. Webb for the January shooting.

The judge heard four hours of testimony and watched video that shows Webb shooting Elio Carrion, an Air Force senior airman who had just returned from a tour in Iraq.

On the video, Carrion appears to be following the deputy's commands.

I wish the Deputy Luck in this trial, it is always hard when all you have is a small frame and you cannot really get a full view of what happend. Oh, I know that the Prosecuetion will try to say that they have a full view of what happend in this shooting, but there is a whole other side of the incident that is not being shown and that is the other side of the Suspect in this case. The one that the Deputy shot. I am not anyone that is any expert in this, but I have been falsly accused before it is not fun!! In fact is't down right scary all the way through the whole thing, until you get vidication for your name to be cleared then you feel Just okay, you never feel alright afterwards. So I say good luck.
