Basically they perform a nighttime "no-knock raid" on a suspected drug dealer's house. The drug dealer isn't there but his roommate is and he is holding a golf club in self defense. The cops pop 5 bullets into him without hesitation.
Ogden police investigated the shooting independently and agreed it was justified.
"He had less than a second to make a decision with a guy swinging what looked like a sword in his hands," Greiner said. "We train these officers regularly on how to defend themselves and be able to go home at night."
I've met some great cops but stuff like this is complete BS. Yeah we shot an innocent man but it was his fault for holding a golf club. Oh the actual drug dealer moved out weeks ago? Not our fault. Didn't have a warrant handy? Meh. Didn't think that a guy with a "sword" 8 feet away might be given a chance to freeze? Whatever.
