    Why?
    Because the BG following his first shot then changed course and was fleeing (!) thus no longer being a direct threat to the two citizens, one of whom had removed herself from the scene and line of fire.
    As well the officer chased the BG around the corner of his home and shot him down as his back was to him.

    Personally I feel the officer did the correct and right/lawful thing in defending himself.
    But just as an FYI state and local laws and judicial review will and do vary to which we individually should be aware.

    Also I'm wondering where did all those security cams come from to capture this event.

    I'm not arguing with you because you already acknowledged that you side with the CO. But in the video the skell gets his shot or shots off and the CO returns fire very quick. Then the next camera picks it up and the skell goes down behind the vehicle. We cannot see if the skell is pointing the gun at the CO or not. IMO the skell is still a threat.

    Not to mention the CO was hit. I cannot see him hanging on this one. And I also wondered why this was captured on two different cameras.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Now a days big brother is everywhere. The neighborhood the CO was looks like it was not exactly people friendly. It reminds me while I was growing up in New York ( East Harlem)we would hang around in front of the projects, then all of the sudden shots ring out of nowhere.That was back in the 1970's - There were no cameras around. Now a days people are installing cameras in there homes, cars, etc. Even the projects are installing them to catch those that damage property such as taggers and those that like to break into mailboxes. Man I don’t miss that, but I do visit Family every other year back east and I never forget where I can from.

    That was great work by the CO. He suddenly found himself under fire and rather than panicing, he kept his composure and returned fire. He didn't freak out when he was hit, he did what he had to do to save his life and end the threat ASAP. I hope out justice system does its job and protects the CO from all legal repercussions. And I hope he is able to recover the full use of his ankle and can return to a long career of keeping terds like this confined.
    Rest In Peace Dad! I love you!!!

    I am a co in nj and we can carry off-duty on the badge. We go to the range once a year. The gun, ammo, and type of holster must all be on a approved list the NJDOC has. I am sure when the departments I.A was notified they checked all his stuff and made sure it was all good. All guns most be double action, and we have a "weapons card" it tells what off duty you are trained in. You can only have 2 off dutys on your weapons card.
