    I will semi agree with this as bad as I hate too. Not because of you. But the situation in general. Absolutely hate the way the scene unfolded. Several people saw the officer with the gun drawn as noted by them saying so. The doorway was barricaded, she climbed in the opening in an attempt to gain further access. I’ve seen much more questionable shootings be justified by many because “they were breaking the law and defying orders”. At the end of the day, She defied orders and breaking the law also. Ended up paying the ultimate price.

    It was unfortunate. I wish that she had made another decision, just like I wish the officer had made another decision. Best outcome is that people learn from the tragedy.

    I disagree, libs deem black vets and black cops as white. If it were a black male with a rapsheet a mile long there would be protests and fire in the streets.

    Havent watched the interview. Alleged officer from SoCal having written that piece seemingly lacks comprehension and is grasping at straws, or he simply posesses underdeveloped skills at persuasive writing, or I am simply more tired than usual. I do agree with one point, the interview should have never been granted. I find it interesting that it was, though.

    From what I read and gather from this article. There may be a civil suit that can be won. I do think he shot too soon as there is no way he could have known if she was armed or not. They might just pay them in an attempt to make it go away. But it still pretty much clears the officer from a criminal standpoint. Seems based on reports and what was unfolding that he had reasonable fear. The same reasonable fear we would use as defense if someone was encroaching upon our house or place we was tasked to protect. There is zero doubt that had she progressed on thru that others would have followed.

    He seems like an inept cop but given the circumstances, I think the shooting was very, very unfortunite but justified.

    Agreed.

    Not going to lie, the majority of the capitol police I’ve seen interviewed and on video, strike me as glorified mall cops.
