That was fucking murder. You don't shoot someone because they pushed you.
That is fucking insane.
I cannot see any other way of looking at it than cold blooded murder. Let us hope this scumbag gets life.
There is no other way to look at it. That was straight murder. We don't live in a world where you should get to shoot someone because they pushed you.
If that was the case, I would know plenty of people that would be dead and I would have shot plenty of others.
This is murder. There is no defending it unless you are crazy.
If someone shoved a cop in that manner, so hard that he went flying several feet back, then the person continued to advance, would the cop be justified in shooting them?
He didn’t continue to advance.
That’s the difference maker for me. If he continued to advance, open fire. He didn’t though. That’s why it’s a bad shoot.
Everyone can disagree on this. I saw him moving towards the guy after he pushed him down. You may see it differently.
The question remains, if someone pushed a cop in that manner (however you saw it), would the cop be justified in shooting him?
This is irrelevant. He backed up when the guy pulled the gun. It could've and should've been over then. That was murder.
