Hampton Police Chief Charles R. Jordan Jr. has backed the two officers involved in the shooting, saying the case appears to be a justified act of
"The investigation thus far supports the actions of the officers," Jordan said Saturday. "They were met with deadly force and had no alternative other
than to return fire."
Nice to see the officers are being defended, claiming it was a clear case of self defense. Too bad this horrible, 69 year old "DRUG CRIMINAL ARRRR"
doesn't get the same benefit of the doubt.
I like how one of their arguments is "We were wearing shirts that said "POLICE" on them. We are obviously cops". If a bunch of armed thugs kicked in
my door without announcing themselves as law enforcement, I would probably assume the worst and wouldn't take the time to examine their clothes to see
if they say "POLICE" on them. They would be immediately met with a hail of gunfire, like the way this man handled it.
Also, I like how the second article spun it at the end there, trying to make the victim look like a degenerate drunk with a gambling problem.
Anyways, I'm not surprised to see the Police Chief is "backing" the two officers involved in the shooting. Typical "protect you own" bull#. They're
probably down at their local bar right now, telling glorious tales about taking down the local drug lord...
