‘He killed that guy and he didn’t have to’

John Geer was killed a year and a half ago, but it wasn’t until a judge ordered officials in Fairfax County, Virginia, to release 11,000 pages of documents earlier this year, detailing their 17-month cover-up of the case, that details of his homicide by police became known.

"He killed that guy and he didn’t have to" - Unfortunately that sums up most of the police shootings in the US over the past few decades. The resulting cover up sounds fairly normal too.

As a Texas CHL holder, we are not allowed to even brandish our weapons unless one of two things happen. One is an aggressor with a weapon of any kind taking a step toward us. The other is more than one aggressor taking steps towards us armed or not, (the 'outnumbered by threat clause'). Cops should be restrained by the exact same rules. If the person in question is not holding a weapon and is not advancing, the police cannot pull out and point weapons at him. End of story.

Ya....but he really, really, really wanted to. And what was there to stop him? Conscience? Fear of punishment? C'mon! Get real!
