Please do be so kind as to share this post.

  1. In the video there is an occupant of a house who gets shot and killed. Which is disturbing enough. But those whose job it is to defend cops will be quick to point out that a cop who sees someone making a threatening gesture is justified in using his weapon to defend himself. There isn’t nearly enough video in this clip to tell whether what we saw was a righteous kill, or a murder.
