24. Let's not pretend this was a procedural firearm safety issue.

In this case however, none of that applies. The shots fired were from the highway towards the embankment. In essence, the victim himself was the only individual threatened by any shot from the police to his direction.

Let's not pretend this was a procedural firearm safety issue. I get the sentiment, yet outside of the odd hack, nobody believes this was the only possible outcome given both the number of LEOs present as well as the victim never pointing his weapon at anyone other than himself.
