Other reporting indicates that the decedent had a replica pistol and pointed it at the officer. For those who don’t know, these replicas can look too damn close to being a real weapon. The officer in question had mere seconds to evaluate and make a choice. Easy to armchair quarterback the decision behind a keyboard.

Honestly, what kind of idiot would point a gun (real or fake) at a police officer?

Ahh yes, Memorial Day, the beginning of the police murder season.

Maybe the FD can wash off the blood stain in the street?

Back the Blue. From what I’ve read it was a rightist act of self defense.
