January 2, 2010. A coroner's jury ruled that Hamilton, Montana Police Officer Ross Jessop was justified in killing a man during a late night traffic stop. It took a six woman jury an hour to rule that Officer Ross justifiably shot and killed Raymond Thane
Davis after Davis shot at him. The five hours of testimony included this video recording of the shooting made by the police car dash camera. Davis first tried shooting Officer Jessop in the face from a few inches away. The click of Davis ' revolver's hammer
hitting a previously fired round was audible on the tape. Davis then shot again as Officer Jessop retreated and drew his own weapon. They found out later that the click was caused when the hammer fell on a spent case in the revolver. The outcome would have
been much different if there had been a live round in the cylinder. Raymond Davis died of his wounds after being hit, then driving into a telephone pole after he sped away.
