I think you people are looking at this the wrong way.
If the cop wasn't carrying a gun, that poor man would still be alive today.
Oh, gawd, I can't do the whiny gun-grabber hysterical sanctimony properly.
But if the cop had been a private citizen, you can bet your ass some loser gun grabber would be saying just that.
But, if it's okay for a cop to use a gun in self-defense, how can it be wrong for a law abiding citizen to do the same thing?
This is good news. I am glad that they killed this low life scumbag piece of excrement. I hope the people who were arrested for helping him evade police are convicted and sentenced to long prison terms. And maybe this case will help to bring about reform of the clemency system nationwide.
