I think that the police officer must of been questioned immediately after the shooting and he must of signed a statement. At least his version of what happened.
Where is that statement?
Nobody is asking for a "Complete" statement of the facts overnight ..... they are asking for the statement which must of been provided to the supervisors by the policeman before he was allowed to leave the station for home on the very first day. Nobody is demanding that the complete facts be known today. They want to know what the policeman's version (his justification or reasoning) was within hours of the shooting. Not after every witness has been interviewed and after the case has been made ready for a final decision as to prosecution or not.
I think that the police are holding back until they interview all the eye witnesses and know the evidence against the officer and thus will be using the additional eyewitness evidence which they have gotten to know over these past few days to give the officer a chance to change his original statement.
It seems to me that the officer must of said within the original statement immediately after the shooting that he was not aware that there was a strongarm robbery at the store, or the chief would not of mentioned this fact, and because it was this chief who took or heard the officers statement within hours after the shooting.
But perhaps after being given the opportunity of changing his original statement over these past days, the mixup or error is because the police officers statement has changed since the original and now the officers statement will read that he did know that the dead man was a wanted man.
I would never trust any statement from this police officer which is said to be the truth now.
