Basically it's like this: A domestic abuser has a 2-by-4. The cops have guns. When it's all over the guy is dead and one of the cops has minor injuries. Doesn't that sound like excessive force to you?
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.The caller said that a 34-year-old male was causing a disturbance with a weapon. Two officers arrived shortly after, and the male attacked the police officers with a 2-by-4-inch piece of lumber. Officers, according to MPD, suffered minor injuries.
When one policeman was unable to remove the man off the other officer, shots were fired. It is not known at this time if both officers fired, but both are considered part of the shooting since they are directly involved.
