Here is a video of the actual shooting..
A) what actually happened is appearently there was a shootout between civilians that and the police were called..
Upon pulling the car over the officer was in the process of arresting the driver when the 2 passangers took off running.
When the officers opened fire on those fleeing . Killing the suspect in question..
B) obviously as you mentioned the teens DID NOT take the guns with them when they ran. So obviously they didn’t want any part of a shoot out with
So obviously the officers are in no danger.. the officers don’t know that, but that is the truth of the situation.
C) of course this is legal, because all a cop needs to do to kill you is claim he felt threatened in the instant he fired.
There is no way to establish what ANYONE was thinking at ANY TIME..
D) the truth is that cops are probably SAFER than your average citizen. Even hard core thugs don’t want to kill a cop. It is an instant death/life
A murderous criminal will kill a civilian a million years before they kill a cop.
Police officers are not even in the top ten most dangerous US jobs.
Statistically, a police officer is FAR more likely to die in a car accident than in a shooting.
E) if this person “got what they deserved” why don’t we execute people for shooting at ANYONE else????
Because unless they took a life , then no one really thinks they deserve the death penalty..
