So it's the cops fault that he died? That's disgusting. Driving is a privilege not a right. When an officer tells you, or even yells at you (oh no might hurt his feelings and cause him to shoot) to step out of a vehicle, you comply. You don't run towards him. The officers gun is holstered on his right hip. Only after the subject CHARGES at the officer, does he draw his weapon.
Again I point out the obvious that you only see the things that bolster your world view. I did view the whole presentation. No where in it did it say the bad guy would act rationally, in fact quite the opposite. And maybe the officer knew that from experience. Nor did it say that an officer of the law shouldn't draw his weapon drawn to protect himself.
Again it's not the guns fault the guy shot the cop. Nor is it the cops fault. I don't care what the reasoning of the bad guy is. Be it just being an ass in general, or ptsd, or whatever.
Ace, wars and aggression have happened since the beginning of time. You will never remove that from existence no matter how much NPR you make them listen to.
Could the officer handled the situation differently, maybe. There's probably a thousand different ways, but you will never know what the outcome would have been. That's just speculation. Should the officer have shot the subject as soon as he had his hand on the weapon? Back then it probably would have been justified. (It should still be today) but everyone from our beloved president ( remember how the cops acted STUPIDLY)
To the attorney general (investigating police agencies every time there's a shooting) to our legislators (hands up don't shoot) to the media (deleting the part where the 911 operator asked George Zimmerman what race the subject was) how do you think the officers will react?! I'd suggest to you that all the combat training in the world and practicing till muscle memory is all you have. Will never be enough when to save a cops life when nearly half the country (lefties) question the motives of every officer.
