When someone is killed, few things tell you more about how the the person who did the killing thinks and feels about the deceased than what they choose to do in the immediate aftermath of the killing itself.

For instance, when Michael Dunn, after shooting and killing teenager Jordan Davis, went back to his hotel room, ordered himself a pizza, fixed a Coke and rum, and went to bed, it gives us a glimpse into the peculiar mindset of the killer--who has since been convicted for his crime.

Scott Peterson, immediately after killing his pregnant wife, Laci, "went fishing," came back home, took a shower, washed his clothes, and, coincidentally, also ate some pizza. On its face, his behavior was out of the ordinary and we later learned that his "fishing trip" was to dump Laci's body, which later washed ashore in the San Francisco Bay.

In real life, or any every television crime drama told for the past 30 years, what a killer does in the immediate aftermath of the killing is extremely telling. It reveals either concern or callousness, sincere compassion or selfishness, humanity or depravity.

As new and extremely troubling details emerge concerning the moments immediately after the shooting deaths of Akai Gurley, Tamir Rice, and Eric Garner at the hands of local police, it would only be fair to wonder aloud what we can learn from the actions, or lack thereof, of the officers who killed these unarmed men.
