This guy goes from a misdemeanor crime to multiple felonies in a matter of minutes. The man began to fight with the officers after they were trying to arrest him. I do not think that a gun was the right choice by the officer. The officer should have been able to subdue the suspect with a taser. It seems like the officer that pulled the gun forgot about the escalation steps regarding the use of force.


Police said the man became violent, assaulted an officer, and attacked the officers with a long, metal blunt object.



An officer pulled out her firearm and shot the suspect to defend the officers, according to police.

I think the officer had better come up with hard evidence to prove his side of the story.
The public no longer automatically believes the officers side of the story anymore.

I'm inclined to think it was a 'contempt of cop.' murder just like Kelly Thomas.

Yeah I agree. It is odd that it seems like there were no witnesses. The article asks for anyone who saw what happened to call the PD.
