Well I did my job in LE for 40+ years and went home at night (sometimes I looked like I had lost the fight, but I never did
) that is why I am questioning his actions. To ASSUME he was justified is a bit much when we consider the circumstances/facts we have here. Short of the person who was shot making threats and actually pointing the gun at him I can't see a justification. The account in the link say he was not facing the officers when he was shot. It sounds like an over reaction by the police as well. I would like to see what the investigation found.
