    What do you think about the black man who got killed by the police officer, after the black man told the officer He had a gun and a permit to carry. I am a retired officer and I have stopped over 10 motorist who were armed and I always had them keep they hand on the steering wheel, after they said they had a gun.Then I would ask them where is the weapon? If it was on them or in the vehicle. But I never shot them because I heard the word “GUN”.
    I do not know what the officer said to the man but his girlfriend said the officer asked for his ID and then shot him when he went to get it.

      Unfortunetly not all leo’s are good guys. Some really don’t belong out there. The chances of a law abiding lawful gun owner is gonna be dumb enough to pull thier weapon on an officer is ridiculously low if not improbable. That cop was definitly a bad one or super jumpy possibly (i hate to say it) a racist or prejudiced. Hopefully he is no longer an officer.
