Reid was sentenced in 1994 to 15 years in prison for his conviction on charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault, reported the Press of Atlantic City.
The newspaper reported at the time that Reid shot at police as he attempted to flee from his home after police came to question him about a stolen gun.
A state trooper shot Reid in the hand, but he was able to run away and eventually surrendered.
Ben Mosely, a retired sheriff’s deputy, told WPVI-TV he watched the incident from his bedroom window.
He said Reid had gotten out of his car but then tried to get back into the vehicle when officers opened fire, but – based on his own police training — he does not believe the shooting was justified.
“I saw a disarmed man go down to the ground and get shot,” Mosley said. “That’s exactly what I saw.”
I didn't fail to include that information in order to fit the narrative I'm being paid to write.
Worley, one of the officers who shot Reid, has faced previous disciplinary action for insubordination, and the other, Day, is a rookie officer.
I guess one other thing I am curious about is what they knew of the guy before the shoot.
Unless the car was registered,which is likely, to him doesn't seem like they had much time to figure out exactly who he is.
Based on what I read though it seems they may have had an idea though.
You know I agree with the second chance thing, doesn't really surprise me you are for that line of thinking, I probably agree with you more then you think on things.
I know I know "cops don't need to wait and see" cause if they do then he can get the first shot off.
I would never suggest such a thing Domo, I appreciate your input a lot...
I just used foresight in preparation for those who will view your comment & jump straight onto the "thug" bandwagon the media loves to perpetuate...
