    We were discussing how we would view the officer had he ended up dead after not shooting a known murderer.

    When I hear about an officer killed in the line of duty I never thought "Shew, at least he didn't kill the suspect!"

    I applaud the police officer for showing restraint.

    I would have shot him...

    especially when he was still advancing as the officer fell back.

    I probably would have also. That's why I said "uncommonly brave".


    At least, I HOPE it was uncommon bravery.... rather than a lack of moral courage.

    I think he did right by backing up, trying to talk him down, whatever, when it became a backwards running reverse chase, that's when he should have pulled the trigger.

    wanted fo suspicion of a double homicide? He chose poorly and is lucky to be alive.

    So here it is....When these other highly publicized cop v unarmed black man were blown in to full meme's, the outcry was for bodycams. Now you have a situation where a bodycam is in place, and as discussion goes, the talk of 'what if's' comes out. That is where your true self is exposed young lady....You don't really want police exonerated in any way what so ever...Hell, they can't do right when they shoot thugs that threaten the community, and they can't do right when they don't shoot while on bodycam...Just what the hell is your problem with police?
