Ivory Webb, the San Bernardino police officer captured shooting an unarmed man by amateur video, was acquitted of all criminal charges over the weekend. Webb says he inadvertently told the victim to "get up," when he meant to say, "don't get up," then shot the victim when he obeyed the order, and started to get up. It's the first time a police officer has ever even been charged in San Bernardino.
