While I'm happy that this guy is convicted, the real issue remains unaddressed, caller ID security flaws. There needs to be a mandate from the regulatory bodies to fix the caller ID system so that it cannot be spoofed. It's gone from annoying scammers to people getting killed, which means time to do something.

the police have to assume its all true - and no doubt are on edge when they arrive. but not shooting someone until they are a true threat (vs a perceived threat based on info) should be SOP

Hopefully it will mean the end of all those dipshit Indian scammer calls

I don't even answer my cell phone anymore unless the person/business is already in my contacts. End up having to Google the number and if it's legit I call it back.

I dont know how i have it, but verizon has a anti-spam feature that must sort of lookup a number on the fly and will indicate "spam caller" if the number isnt legit.

He "saw a gun"

A convenient catch all because in the mind of those investigating cops who murder people, EVERYTHING is a gun.

Wallet? Gun.
hand? Gun.
Shoe? Gun.

But considering the gun culture we live in....that is to be expected. What a country.

The dude is an *******. But the cop needs to get some sort of punishment too. Letís put it this way, if someone breaks into my house and I shoot him, and heís not armed or causing grave bodily injury to anyone, Iím going to prison. Cops should be put to higher standards with even more severe penalties.

This was over a $1 bet. And it wasn't even the right guy!

So senseless.

Depends on the state. In NV as long as we donít shoot them in the back youíre in the clear.

We can argue this forever. Unless either police start being held accountable, or straight up start dying (or being held to the same standards as your everyday citizen, since that will only militarize police moreso); nothing will change.

ĒI was afraidĒ or ďI saw a gunĒ. Neither should be acceptable. No gun, instant job loss. Then maybe charges.

They have been in select instances. Like busting down the wrong door in Texas and the owner injured some cops shooting back.

We're different in Texas. I will openly admit that a cop will get shot in the mouth if they kick in my doors or windows; as that is considered a threat and I am a law abiding citizen. I have a big EGA (Marine Corps logo) on my front door, and a flag out back. That's warning enough. A threat is a threat. No real distinction there.

"Select instances" is bs and leaves room for the "feared for my life" defense, which is a complete crock. If you fear for your life, find a different job.
