This is a video of a press conference given by NY armed government workers following the shooting of an apparently bipolar man who was pointing a pipe that looked like a gun at various people. The man was shot by armed government workers and later died.
What’s interesting about this isn’t the shooting but rather the four stars on the shoulder boards and collar of the head armed government worker. A full general! Just like Patton and only a notch in rank below Eisenhower!
How did armed government workers acquire military rank?
