2 probes were riding with a SAPD SGT at around 3:00 AM last week. The SGT took a call about an out of control family member.
When the cops arrived they got information from the parents…”Can’t do anything with Jr.”
“OK we’ll take care of it.” When the SGT opened the door to the bedroom he was met with several shotgun blasts. The SGT engaged the shooter who died at a hospital. “Hey, where’s my rookies?”
Where were they? Well, at the sound of gunfire they turned and ran the opposite direction. Fortunately the SGT was OK and successfully addressed the shooter. A cop expects and demands that the officers on a call with him/her will do their duty, that includes facing the violator during a resisting or a gunfight.
The Chief made the right call. These folks have no business being in a profession where you may be required to shoot someone.
Good call Chief. Understand McDonald’s is hiring.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
