    "Florida man with plastic gun killed by Florida police with real guns" - via Drew @ fark.com

    "Robert Striffler was shot by Brevard County Sheriff’s deputies after a three-hour standoff in the parking lot of the Moore Justice Center, during which he waved a pistol and yelled threats."



    I am not sure this means how I read it ...
    "Ivey identified the agents ... Both have been routinely placed on administrative leave... "
    I read that to mean that the Agents have over their careers been on leave multiple times - so much so, it is routine.

    I read it to mean: In the case of an officer involved shooting, standard procedure it to place the involved officers on paid
    administrative leave. Not these particular officers---just SOP for any shooting.
