Assuming that's accurate it pretty much says it all. Running away chased down and kicked. Can't see how much more justified this could have gotten. If someone is putting the boots to you on the ground it don't take but one lucky shot to do serious bodily harm or kill you. It's about as vulnerable as you can get to that kind of attack. I have no doubt the shooter was in fear of his life, and it appears the police feel the same way.
Sounds like a good shoot to me.
Of course the paper has to label the guy who got shot as "the victim."
Yea when I started reading that sentence I thought they were refering to the guy that got chased down, the snot kicked outta him, and defended himself , you know the victim. Not the guy that chased another man down, knocked him to the ground and started to beat him to the point that he thought he was going to die. I should have known better.
Such bilge that passes for Journalism any more.
Note that the police didn't apparently DO anything about this until someone had to defend their lives from him with lethal force. And, of course, yes. The attacker becomes the victim.
He is a victim... Of his own stupidity.
One woman on TV told the reporter something like "I wasn't scared because it was obvious the guy wasn't going to start shooting people at random." Nice level headed statement for a Seattlite.
The obvious question is where the cops were when they were getting reports of a crazy guy attacking and harassing people at Westlake (downtown's fanciest shopping area) well before the shooting.
One report mentioned that the shooter is black. No race card to be played there.
They were on their way apparently.
