Cops Kill Man Watering His Plants

Police shoot and kill a man because they thought his hose nozzle was a pistol. Another tragic and uneccessary death. Condolences to the victim's family.

    Come on, he was drunk holding what does look like a gun and held it just like a gun. He was not watering anything!!!!! Turn it around, say the womans brother was one of the cops and he d id have a gun and the cops said it could have been a water nozzle and he shot one of the cops she'd be calling lawyers to sue because they "thought" it was a nozzle.

    People have been shot dead by police officers as they see a black handgun w/o an orange muzzle tip which means a pellet/bb pistol. Big 5 Sporting Goods sells them besides some "adult" pistols minus the tip. This is in California. This latest death is a tragic mistake....

    Another quick to shoot and not ask questions. I am a former soldier and I can tell the difference from a water nozzle and a pistol. A shotgun with slugs was used if fired from a distance. And then using there service weapons fired multiple times. These cops need to be held on manslaughter charges. I know it's a bad world we live in, but use your head more and not your weapon every time YOU feel threaten. No wonder most people have no respect for our police forces.

    Really guys? Somebody points what you believe to be a gun at you, you don't think you're going to respond with the same force you're using against you? It looks like a gun, somebody said it was a gun, he's pointing it at you, it is reasonable to believe it is a gun. I would've made the same call given those exact circumstances, but it's too bad it wasn't a gun he had. Had it been a gun in his hand, and I hesitated, I would be dead. People hate me when I'm in uniform because they see the way others depict us. Because "Cops kill people for watering their plants", really? I'd really like to meet the jerk that put that up.
