Aurora police shooting victim identified by neighbors
Police must have responded in record time. I guess the lesson to be learned is, when the cops show up, ditch the gun.
Translation: lets get our stories straight and delete body cam footage before we try to explain how we shot and killed a decorated 73-year old Army vet who was defending his grandson.Aurora police and the Adams County District Attorney have refused to answer follow-up questions about the incident, saying it could harm the ongoing investigation.
You would tell your loved ones not to call 911 until your say so? That sounds like horrifically bad advice, even if it's remotely possible the intruder bests you or slips past you and heads straight for your loved ones. A 30 or 60 second delay is life or death.Lesson I got was not to let anyone call the PD until all the shooting is well past.
We have talked about this and basically the answer is my wife will not have time to be calling the police. If the door is kicked in or a window is broken out and someone is trying to gain entry I will arm myself and go repel the intruder. I wake easy and am about 85% operational in seconds. She wakes slow and will need time to arm herself. By the time she has retrieved her pistol and is ready to use it if need be I will have either taken care of the problem or had the problem take care of me. Won't be a whole lot of time to be calling the police. And I don't want her fumble effing around with the phone when she needs to be ready. The police will be called after the situation is handled.You would tell your loved ones not to call 911 until your say so?

I think better advice is: police have a "gun free zone" effective for all civilians in their immediate presence (or even items that might resemble a gun, like an iPhone: Sacramento police shot at a man 20 times in his own yard, thinking his iPhone was a gun).
Among those who called 911 was Jeanette Black, and she gave dispatchers a very specific description of her husband and what he was wearing, Mohamedbhai said. He also said evidence suggests that while Black was inside his home the officer who shot him was outside...
I think this incident proves our "highly trained professionals" need more training, or better training to weed out the mall cop flunkies.One thing I don't have to speculate on is the anti gun-owner cabal jumping on this as PROOF that only the police should be armed. You know... highly trained professionals.
