ETA: Or, you work for Yeager and you are about to do a demonstration of how you can drop and grind a Glock into the ground. :whistling:
umm actually I think re holster would be most appropriate. The cop on scene (who was aided) clearly knows the shooter is a "friendly"...seems people think the responding officers are gonna show up and just start hosing down any possible threatsProbably a good idea not to be standing there holding a weapon when police are responding...I would unload and put it down, if I was thinking clearly.
Add this to your list.OMG...so many things to say...
1) obviously good on the citizen for helping
2) he may not have had to shoot the guy if the jackass recording the incident had offered to help the other citizen instead of playing youtube hero and screeching like a girl
3) our society today....the camera guy is surprised that you get shot when you're on top of a uniformed officer pummeling him...wtf
4) theres apparently 2 people there who aren't members of BLM
