"When a shooting results in the death of a citizen, emotions erupt from the community, media, the victim's family, and the law enforcement profession. People take sides, and everyone seems to have an opinion. While officers have the responsibility to protect members of society and swear an oath to carry out their duties, occasionally, they must resort to the use of deadly force when circumstances call for it."
