Remember, guns are only safe when they are in the hands of people trained to use them.
A grandfather checking on his neighbor is shot and killed by Fort Worth police. The shots rang out early Tuesday morning near Woodhaven Country Club, in east Fort Worth.
Those close to the family say the victim lived nearby and heard his neighbor’s burglar alarm. Neighbor Jerry Wayne Waller then apparently went outside to see what was going on.
The 72-year-old man didn’t even make it to the house across the street before he was shot. He died on his own property.
So it’s early morning, so we can assume its dark. The cops respond to an alarm and standing in the darkness, probably wearing slippers and a pair of pajama pants is this guy:
I mean, why wouldn’t you open fire?
Speaking on the incident Fort Worth police Cpl. Tracey Knight said, “Officers felt threatened by the man with the handgun and he was shot.”
After the shooting Haskin said, “The police officers were sobbing uncontrollably and very distraught.”
How was the family?
True, I wasn’t there. But listen to how Jerry is described by his neighbors:
he and his family have always been very involved in the community. “They are just a nice retired couple, that loved working in their yard, having family over, and grandkids,”
Sound like someone that would have been waving a gun around like a crazy man?
Something stinks here. What do you think?
