A Florida “hero” went after a guy on a bicycle who was allegedly riding on the wrong side of the street. The guy had a cell phone and the “hero” claims he thought this was a gun and – ta-dum, fearing for his safety – shot the bicyclist several times, permanently paralyzing him.
Naturlich, the “hero” was excused for his murderously excessive actions, but a court later awarded his victim a large settlement.
That just got tossed, too.
This will go on for as long as we continue to tolerate it.
Until it’s no longer acceptable for an armed government worker to murder people in the street by bleating “officer safety.”
Aren’t “heroes” supposed to put their lives at risk for the safety of others?
