The officers very possibly are lying about what the man was doing and how they responded. I've witnessed first hand that police polish up their stories, getting them straight with each other to present the best viewpoint for themselves especially under questionable circumstances.
And yes I hope the idiot on the phone has a life time of sleepless nights ahead of him...
edit: and you know what? even if he was playing around and pointed the sprayer with two hands.. IT WAS NOT A WEAPON! the more I think about this the more angry I get.. I like to sit out on my porch steps watering the grass and flowers but I don't think I'll ever do it again without thinking of this man.. minding his own business and now dead.
