Police union spokesman Sgt. Scott Westerman has claimed officers are trained, in essence, "once you see the gun, it's too late." Officer Ron Frashour testified as much to the Grand Jury, telling jurors he fired his AR-15 because he believed Aaron Campbell was reaching for a weapon.
First, Sgt. Westerman's summary an accurate portrayal of deadly force training and policy?
Second, under that training, is a police officer justified in shooting anyone they legitimately believe to have a firearm?
