Oh look, a good guy with a gun. Better send him to jail for using a scary bang bang.

So as far as anyone can tell right now. you have the cop who was shopping with his kid. While holding the kid in the freezer aisle, someone with potential mental issues allegedly attacked him, and the cop shot him dead. If these are the actual series of events then I don't see how anyone could come to the conclusion that the cop is wrong here.

don't read the daily mail article its dripping with autism all I'll say is if this man French was supposedly a "gentle giant" and "non verbal" etc why would a cop holding his child pull out his gun and shoot him for no reason?

Why is it that the vast majority of situations where the police use undue force come from California? The majority of mass shootings too.
