WE have a similar situation here... A young man (just turned 21) had a warrant for his arrest. When they found him (the officers) he RAN. Stupid thing to do. Anyway, he ran and they cornered him. Here's the debate issue: Police said he had a gun and shot the officer with the warrant then ran. Happily he (officer) had a vest on. When cornered he tried to shoot other officers and was shot and killed in the process. Now I am NOT being racist but it is an issue in this case. The guy who was shot was black and the whole black community is upset because they are saying he was unarmed. If you see his record I would doubt he was unarmed. The officers claim that he was armed and they did what they had to do. Personally I think they were in the right. Now the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) is getting involved. This was a month ago. I dont know anything else about it.
EDIT: I also agree with scotty
