Oh those black robed folks are continuing to make being a cop even harder. In Tahlequah, OK three cops went to an address when called by the ex-wife. Said he’s in the garage and won’t leave.
As cops do they went to the garage and attempted to talk to a raving lunatic who was waving a large hammer. The cops attempted to de-escalate and have the goof drop the hammer. No dice and no dropped hammer either. The result being a fool who would not cooperate and cops who shot and killed the hammer wielding nutjob.
As with any slip and fall ambulance chaser, the estate sued. It was thrown out. The estate appealed and the 10th circuit remanded the case back to the district level saying the cops may have provoked the incident. I watched the bodycam video…didn’t look like the cops had any choice.
Must have taken a lot of chin-rubbing and ceiling gazing to reach that conclusion. Oh yeah, this occurred in 2016. The case is set for the fall session of the Supremes. How many of us have been on a call that went from “routine” to “Bat Guano” crazy in a matter of seconds.
BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST, TURN ON YOUR CAMERA, STAY SAFE and deadly if you must!
