Is it not great that we live in Franklin, N.C., and not Ferguson, Mo. Can you envision a 260-pound, 6-foot-plus person going into one of our convenience stores taking something without paying for it regardless of its cost physically assaulting the owner which constitutes a strong-arm robbery – a felony in every state – and then walking out in the middle of the street? When confronted by the police officer uses profanity and hostility.
The next move, the police officer tries to get out of his car and the subject pushes his door, forcing him back into the car, striking him several times with his fist, then reaching in the car for his firearm. In his defense, the police officer draws his pistol and luckily is able to get a round off striking the individual in the hand. The subject turns and runs a few feet when ordered by the police stop get on the ground he turns around and charges the police officer. At which time the police officer fires several times, some of the shots striking the subject killing him.
