HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair Saturday inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.
God what is going on in this country!

I bet the officer gets away with it aswell.
How can the public stand for this the bunch of brainwashed idiots theyll probably say he deserved it.
"It was close quarters in the area of the house," Silva said. "The officer was forced into an area where he had no way to get out."

Who knows that pen could have been a detonater of some sorts.
The one arm, one legged guy could have been working for Al Queda....Police must be ready for anything.
I feel safe knowing he's never going to wave a pen around...again!!
All joking aside a handicapped citizens life was cut short by a stupid...stupid...decision....very sad, they are supposed to be protecting our most vulnerable....
