    NYPD police officer killed by cop - CNN.com


    It is surely a tough job. The absolute knowledge of when to use deadly force is required. Of course, by the logic of "how could he have known?", "what, do you expect him to be a mind reader?", this killing is not only acceptable, it's good police work.

    It was bound to happen. How's a cop supposed to tell a good cop from a bad cop?..they all look alike.

    Well, the thing is, running from the police is NEVER acceptable. We have learned that a mentally disabled child has to know that or he suffers the consequences. How is it that a cop doesn't understand the same thing? Terrible accident or did the cop get what he deserved for not knowing that people who run from the cops get dealt with?

    What's that? Pointing out flawed logic? Absolutely.

    You know better. The conflicted logic here is not invisible to you.

    I am just as concerned with the lack of restraint here as in the case of a child.

    Point is, no one is here saying the cop that was running away deserved it, nor is anyone here defending the cop that shot him as "just doing his job".

    For some, as this demonstrates, it isn;t about what they claim it to be, it isn't about the procedure, the use of force, the rightness/wrongness. It all depends on who gets killed.

    Come on, babe. Spell it out.

    In both cases, the force was justifiable in the judgement of the officer on the scene. Both had unintended consequences.

    Actually, the officer doing the shooting might have actually intended to kill the off duty cop, not knowing who he was.
