This is what happens when a criminal gets a hold of a police officer’s service weapon.
1. The officer lays dead.
2. The perpetrator lays dead.
They don’t even know what happened, why the guy snapped and attacked the officer. Based off of the news report, there was definitely something off with the guy.
This is why I always maintain that a police officer should use whatever force is necessary to maintain control of their weapon. In a case like this one, I’d rather read that the bad guy was taken out, and not the cop.
