What are you talking about? The cops claim that the guy drew his wallet in an "aggressive stance." If that's enough to justify shooting someone, we're screwed. Furthermore, if this is okay, how is Trayvon Martin's death even a talking point?
I mean, you're basically saying that we can shoot anyone on suspicion alone. That is simply not okay. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior.
"HURP DURP I THOUGHT HE HAD A GUN SO MY PIG BRAIN TOLD ME TO SHOOT HIM WITHOUT ANY CONFIRMATION!!!!! OINK OINK OINK, I THINK I'LL GO SHOOT SOME PEOPLE AT THE DONUT SHOP NEXT. HURP DURP, IT'S ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE I'M ABOVE THE LAW!!."
He said to her "I can't take it anymore," which is what alarmed her to call the cops. I read nowhere that the wife mentioned he had a gun, so I can't confirm it.
Camden said the man's wife had contacted police, saying he was depressed and she was worried for his safety because he had a gun. The firefighter was on medical leave and had been despondent in the past, Camden said.
It's pretty simple, if you want to get away with killing people, become a cop. Even soldiers, in extreme cases, have to answer for their crimes (i.e. massacring an entire village of people), but never pigs.

Seriously people, if you want to change police policy, ATTEND YOUR LOCAL CITY COUNCIL MEETING! This is where city police policy is made. County board meeting to address the sheriff department issues and state board members for state police issues. Someone else is not going to do it for you by themselves.

Most cops I know are good people that approach their job as a public servant, and not a power-tripping a-hole. All too often, we let the actions of a few taint the reputation of all. But the fact you call them pigs says more than you know.
