Seattle police shooting ignites debate
So, the Seattle police shot a 77-year-old guy suffering from dementia (they did not know about his ailment).
He comes to the door of his house holding a gun. He does not respond to repeated commands to drop the gun. Instead, he raises the muzzle toward the police. They fire.
Now the aftermath quarterbacking erupts.
