An artificial emergency

It was the second time in recent months that Ohio law enforcement officers responded to 911 calls by concerned citizens, and then shot and killed people holding airguns with three seconds of arriving on scene, allowing them no time to process and respond to officer commands. Neither John Crawford nor Tamir Rice had committed a crime. They’re no less dead because of it.

Bearing Arms has shooting video from the Ohio 12-year-old with airgun incident. It looks like police didn't give themselves time to do anything BUT shoot the person.

It used to be that the goal of a police officer going into a situation like that was to resolve it peacefully.
