Tragedy

Posted By on May 21, 2008

Retired cop shoots and kills firefighter because the FF was having a birthday party and the kids ball went into the cop's yard. The FF goes over to get the ball, an argument ensues, it gets physical and the cop shoots him. Now, we don't know what transpired here, and it could be that the firefighter was beating the snot out of the cop and he was in fear for his life, and thus it was a “good shoot”*. However, these facts are clear – a cop shot and killed a man with his wife, two kids, and a bunch of other partygoers only next door. I would speculate that many of said partygoers likely had full view of the incident.

  • = He is being charged with murder, so I doubt that the prosecution thinks it was justified.
