This cop has how many issues in California in different departments and is here UNCERTFIED yet he gets excused, the family needs to come out and tell the whole story of that day so this cop doesnt get away with this.

I read the article about the shooting. I am a police officer. Sounds like Sciortino stopped someone, probably a police officer from being killed. Does a police officer have to wait till hes shot to justify firing back? The answer is hell no. Hats off to Sciortino for stepping up and preventing someone from be killed or injured.

No, he first has to find someone's dog to kill then he can shoot anyone else, then if there are survivors, prosecute them.
