Bad Guy shoots Cop. Good Guy shoots Bad Guy. Cop shoots Good Guy.

quote [ The police in Arvada, Colo., said a good Samaritan who fatally shot a gunman who had just killed a police officer was himself shot by responding officers. ]

Something something "good guy with a gun."

This is making the rounds on extremes at both ends, so I hope this is a fairly neutral source.

What would a neutral take on cops ( ie. agents of the state, with the full force and backing of the state) murdering people look like?🤔

Bystander Who Intervened in Shooting of Officer Was Fatally Shot by Police

ngl tho, super surprised they haven't switched to passive language in the headline yet. Typically it's something like "officer involved shooting"

"Police murdered good samaritan who shot anti-police gunman"

Gonna guess that the N.R.A. and other gun rights' groups are going to be totally silent on this, because denying all of this guy's rights by killing him is somehow not as big a deal as limiting his gun rights.

I saw it being reported on by very left and very right sources. Normally I'd be referencing a left source since that'd be the only ones talking about real problems. Since I was seeing this one being approached all over the spectrum I tried to lean more middle than I ordinarily would.

TLDR: Having a lot of guns floating about leads to a lot of people getting shot.
