Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod. In EL Cajon there was a police officer who shot and killed a man. The subject who was killed was an alcohol and cocaine user, jus happened to point a vape mod at the officer like a gun. Again the officer will not be charged because deadly force was deemed acceptable.
The officer last year shot and killed an unarmed black man. Even though he has shot and killed another human last year, this shooting with the vape device was completely justified by the district attorney. I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is asking for it.
I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is just asking for trouble. Police officers are out to protect citizens and themselves, so if someone appears to point a gun at an officer they are probably going to get shot.
Police officers are put in situations where they have to make split-second decisions and this is one of them. It is sad that someone lost their life, but he proposed a threat to the police officer.
The father of the man who was killed said he was shocked that a police officer could shoot and kill a person and not be arrested. Personally, I feel anyone in their right state of mind would see this as justified. The guy pointed the vape at him like a gun. The vape was silver and from a distance probably looked like a gun.
After the man was killed, they tested his blood. In his blood, they found cocaine and alcohol. He was probably acting crazy as well and was not in his right state of mind. It is very unfortunate that he lost his life, but he threatened the officer and the officer defended himself.
