I don’t doubt that the cop who shot him felt scared with the Crazy witch love me or hate me either way you’ll remember me shirt, and going into his car. But I think given the history of the US he would’ve felt scared regardless. That said, I think though fear is warranted when dealing with unknown situations, he’s supposed to be trained to de-escalate. There looked to be 3 cops and none of them could get him before he went into the car. It says kids were in the car but other news doesn’t report this. This is insane either way, they’ve tangled with drunk people more belligerent and taken them into custody without killing them.
