My sentiments exactly RR. It is so easy for self righteous reporters and others to sit in their safe places and criticize anything police officers do to protect themselves or others. And since when is it news that the friends and family of the poor innocent victim of police use of force that CNN and other bleeding hearts seem to be implying was excessive? We'll have to wait for the conclusions of the investigation which will hopefully be unbiased and beyond the reach of what public opinion THINKS happened based on news reports.
