Too many incidents like this make it such that any person, criminal record or not, should be allowed to bear arms in the US for his own protection. Furthermore, the presumption of innocence should be equally strictly applied to any person who shoots a cop in self defence or in the defence of others.
Looks like cops in the US are out of control.
This gun thing reminds me so much of old yankee dusters the women packed little purse pistols every body carried weapons and it worked they became an Empire I'v heard. It contributed muchly in laying down the foundations, it won't be the same without guns.The western Police have been radicalized, clearly. movies, TV preachers
In to many cases the police fail to read the crime scene correctly, they're pumped for securing and neutralizing then reading, it's backwards, too many times. You can see it, which serves a purpose as well. Innovation
I think it's time Canadians had the right to bear arms, I know their our frends but they got this ego thing sometimes. If we were armed somewhat similarly we mutually could avoid nasty accidental even bissiness.
Because of my age and disability I'm allowed to have a treadchair which mounts a 30mm rapid fire, the disabled have the right to protect themselves. We can negotiate about the calibre and the horsepower.
