First off let me start this thread with a warning. This is not the controversy laden part of the forum. Keep it clean, keep it smart, and keep the rhetoric to a minimum. I am posting this here because we can all learn something from this incident. More on that later. Just keep in mind this is to give us a scenario that we can learn from. Keep the cop bashing to yourself. Out of respect for copyrights I will not post the entire story. I will provide links to the stories at the end of each quote. Finally, as you read the release from the LE agency and the impressions from the investigation assess the level of threat to the deputy. Was deadly force indicated? http://jacksonville.com/breaking-news/2013-11-12/story/putnam-deputy-fired-shooting-vehicle http://www.pcso.us/default.aspx?ArticleId=629 So what do you think? Was the deputy right or wrong? What do you think you would do? What do you think would happen to a civilian that responded as the deputy did? Picture yourself coming home from work and seeing someone fleeing from your home with your TV set and your wife's jewelry box in their arms.
