I apologize Mahogany, I am unsure why this has impacted me so personally. I didn't know the guy (of course) and there are good people killed every day
Yet I can't help but feel like somehow someway a lot of people let this man down. And he died for it. No good deed goes unpunished
Sorry buddy, no anger/outrage intended to be directed at you

This is standard operating procedure for too many law enforcement agencies and officers now because of the Supreme Court ruling in Tennessee vs Garner, and exploited by folks like David Grossman via "killology" courses.
The Supreme Court ruled that cops can use deadly force if they feel their life or another's life might be in danger. Since it's impossible to prove what is or is not in any LEO's heart/mind, they can and do kill with impunity.
And folks like David Grossman make a pretty penny teaching LEOs how to get away with it.

Under these rules of engagement, innocent people will necessarily die at the hands of cops. In this instance, the security guard had a gun -- that's all that's needed for a cop to fear for his life.
Well, hate to bring up race but he was black and when the officers arrived the crowd was yelling to not shoot the security guard.
Cop accidentally kills security guard
Thanks for sharing the links about Dave Grossman.
It was a pretty chilling read where he basically says cops need to be even more trigger happy.
He may be one of the men most responsible for getting a lot of innocents killed in this country.
