Re: Policewoman Murders Man in His Own Apartment

This case is particularly scary because the guy was just in his apartment minding his own business. We all know what the policewoman's defense will be. He was holding what appeared to be a gun but turned out to be the tv remote. He appeared threatening. He reached for her gun. She feared for her life. He's no angel because he had a parking ticket 5 years ago.


Also, I abhor the phrase "police-involved shooting". This is a completely made-up phrase by LEOs to downplay what happened.

Say a dog just bit a woman. Do we call it a dog-biting case or a dog-involved biting?

By the way, if anyone accuses me of cop-hating, I'm an ex LEO.

If you say the word "gullible" slowly, it sounds like oranges. Go ahead and try it.
