Stewart's death was announced by Flagstaff police just before 6 p.m......
.....Bentzen said based on the preliminary investigation, Stewart did not have time to return fire, "as the onslaught of rounds from the suspect were immediate and rapidly erupting."

Historic perspective ?
To be honest this whole " Killer Racist Cop " false narrative is not that old.
I don't think this issue will be around long enough to be viewed in a Historical context.
Well, maybe in the context of just how many gullible people we have living in America.
This is a " cause " without substance , hypocritical and built on misinformation, out right lies and charges of " racism ".
It won't be around for long.
Just because cops don't always kill people doesn't mean that sub-murder actions aren't offensive and lumped in with the cumulative internal score people tally.
When a small racial subset (14%) of the population is responsible for about half of the nation's homicides, one (using that "internal score"") is not permitted to use that fact to infer that blacks, in general, are more likely murders (since that would be racist), but if less than 1% of police officers kill any (much less black) folks then it is somehow fair game (using your sacred, personal "internal score"?) to label police, in general, as more likely violent, racist killers.
