i listened to it on the scanner as it happened, and you could tell it wasn't going to end well before it happened. this punk was clearly disturbed and it was bad from the start. if his friends think he was innocent, why did several officers already have firearms pointed at him. the officers don't have the luxury of taking turns to see who can stop a threat. if they told him to disarm and he did not obey, it only takes less than a second to point his gun in any direction and shoot one of them. i'm just glad he was the one who got shot and not one of the officers who had to go deal with him. if he was in the right, like his friends suggest, then law enforcement would have been his ally, not his foe.
