In response, police officers all over PA should stop coming to work until new laws are passed to protect officers from malicious prosecutions. They should show these animals what life is like without law enforcement. Especially when those same people risk losing their livelihood over a good shoot and some angry idiots. Let the citizens of PA see that police protect them from the same animals they're protesting for. And it is very clear these criminal charges are politically motivated. Either that, or the cowardly justice system is scared of little protesters. I stand with Officer Michael Rosfeld.
Heart breaking to see this young officer handled so poorly.
How is this any different from the mass shooting in Texas where a citizen pursued the shooter and took him down?
He took off running (only guilty people do that)
It is OK to shoot someone in the back when you're protecting the community from that person.
In a situation like the one above, where you stopped a person that had just been involved in a shooting, if I was the officer responding you would not have been leaving that scene in handcuffs any more than the gentleman in Texas who stopped a mass shooter did. I understand where you are coming from though. Shooting someone in the back always sounds/looks bad. But in this case, it seems justified to me at least knowing PA law.
If that is indeed the circumstances, I will be the first to admit I was dead wrong about this
