The Governor of North Carolina was the one to break the news of a man shot and killed by a state trooper following the recent hurricane. The story, pieced together, is the tropper and two other officers encountered a hostile man who acted agressively and pulled out a handgun. These are stressful and trying times for residents and officers and if the story is accurate was a foolish move by the man which actually cost him dearly. The SBI will investigate and determine if the shooting was justified. It all boils down to simply complying with officer commands and not presenting a threat. I am not sure why many today believe they should resist authority, but if you find yourself in a situation, please comply with officer commands. You may be right and they may be wrong, but the goal of the encounter is for everyone to come out alive and the best way to ensure that happens is to comply!
