    Cops are not trained to shoot to disable. They shoot to kill after being shot at. If this kid(I consider him a kid whether or not he was 18. All 18 year olds are kids to me) shot first, he gets what he got.

    Now if the cop saw he was disabled and then shot him again, that is a problem.

    Is there any evidence that the man fired a shot at the officer other than what the police say?

    Yes. Just a matter of a little more time, and he'd have made it to that goal of taking care of the infirm and the elderly. But it was snatched from him when that ham and rye went off.

    The notion that the mom claims the guy had a sandwich is lol-worthy though.

    "He was running from his friends with a sandwich in his hand. He didn't drop it because it was his favorite and running from the cops works up an appetite."
