Cop-bashing; another high profile incident...
This topic is real easy to slide into cop-bashing which I want to avoid BUT these are all valid points being posted in the forum.
I wanted to add that in my metro area, a retired police officer is now on trial for shooting & killing his son in a heated dispute.
The retired police officer & his lawyers want to use the state's "stand your ground" law(s) as a defense.
The ex-cop is on video during part of the fight, following his son into the driveway, then later(off-camera) he shoots a firearm, wounding his adult son.
Sworn LE officers(just like regular citizens) can't just; "lose it" or fly off the handle then not be held accountable for their violent or unstable behavior.
