The store was violating his constitutional right to carry does not matter they have no right to discriminate,because of irrational fears, and that guy is dead because of some half wit who does not understand what CCW is.
He should be alive right now, and he isn't.

Citizens have a right to protect themselves, whichever way you try to spin it.
Police are suppose to be trained to handle these types of situations with discernment and professionalism. When you become a sworn officer, you know the risks involved, the job is NOT meant for everyone. If you have sweaty palms, an itchy trigger finger and a fear of confronting danger, this is what happens.

Too bad his lady was just his G/F, if she was his wife she coulda sued Las Vegas and ended up owning half the town and that costco too.
Po-leece do not like it when people other than them have firearms, it makes them nervous because everyone knows theyre all crooks and theyre afraid of that cowboy justice.
Gonna get real interesting when people start shooting cops on sight because of all the illegal bullh*t and police brutality they engage in.Those badges are a license to commit murder and get away with it. They murder someone and get a 2 week paid vacation and a promotion. This is an ass backwards world we live in today.
murder does not = mistake. Plain and simple.

Mistakes with guns can,t be reversed... This is why in the UK we ( The public.) are,nt legally allowed wander around with handguns on our person, and only specialist armed response police teams carry weapons. Mistakes over here are very rare.

How did you find out about what was in his system? This should have been mentioned in the article.
Things are not adding up here, just like in the Zimmerman/Martin case. He should have left when asked, no question about it. But, three cops shooting all at once at a man who is part of a crowd exiting a building? Video of incident just so happens to malfunction during the incident? Cops won't release 911 call to the public? Out of almost 200 coroner reports, not one was ruled excessive force by police? Witnesses saying that he did not have a gun in his hand? Just a lot of variables that don't paint a clear picture.
The family asked the court to dismiss the case after the defendants asserted “qualified immunity,” which shields government officials from liability for the violation of an individual’s federal constitutional rights and “puts a brick on the scales of justice” against plaintiffs, Scott says
