I see that the officer who shot the man on April 14 "followed protocol." I know that law enforcement is pretty much of a thankless job. I do hope there is a thorough investigation, both for the public's and the officer's sakes. If all it takes to be a police officer is to "follow protocol," a robot could do the job.

If an officer reacts immediately, there's an investigation. If he reacts too slowly, his wife looses her husband. The officer has shown that he has quick reflexes. Let's make sure he has the other qualities needed. I'll be praying for him, the victim's relatives and all those involved in the investigation.
