Do they still publish the number of officers killed with their own service weapons in the FBI UCR?
This is a scenario where a biometric enabled gun would have saved her life. The sooner that technology actually works off the shelf, the better. Could save anywhere from 20-40 officers a year.
Edit: The article is a bit confusing. Did he ONLY shoot her with her own weapon, or did he shoot her with his pistol, take hers, and then shoot her some more with that gun? I can't really parse the sequence of events there.
I am a 'peace purist' and proud of it. If that pisses you off, you are exactly the sort of person I want to piss off.
