This guy forfeited his life because he stole booze from Walmart and then tried to draw an airsoft gun on two uniformed police officers who ere arresting him.

Points I found noteworthy...

1. BG got a <....> grin on his face, and postured his body to access the gun just before he drew it...

2. The female officer's shrill shrieking did not help the situation at all. Nor did drawing her tazer (and then not using it).

3. I'm curious why they didn't frisk him and cuff him in the head. I can only assume that they didn't want to cause a scene in the restaurant and upset the customers or annoy the management, so they took him outside.

4. Female officer seems to be trying to redeem herself by firing on the BG after he was down and out.

5. I'd really like to know if the BG got a shot off with the airsoft. It seems like he really got the drop on the female officer and could have plugged her at close range.... it almost looks as if he was trying to spook them... which fit's with the flippant comments he made inside.

As we often said in my navy days.... "the stupid shall be punished"

I'm closing this as we don't need internet experts commenting in a sexist manner on one of the officer's actions. Those posts are deleted.

In fact, some folks came very close to taking a hike.
