So, I’m asking, America. Let me get this straight. An off duty, partially officially dressed, Gilbert police officer was in Walmart shopping, when he noticed a woman shoplifting. He followed her out of the store and approached her in the parking lot. The woman had a man in the parking lot waiting for her. The woman struck the Gilbert officer in the face, knocking off his glasses. The officer called 911 so she could be arrested for shoplifting and then the man approached the officer. The officer drew his gun and ordered the man to get down on the ground. The man continued to approach and verbally threaten the officer and he shot the man in the groin.
This Gilbert police officer was demoted to a dispatch desk job. The shoplifting criminals went to court to sue the Gilbert police for $300,000. The criminals won $75,000. Wow.
Now this Gilbert Locksmith understands two things from this true story (according to news sources, because I didn’t look it up in the court docs) but the two things about this situation are, you are NEVER I mean NEVER allowed by law to draw down on someone of equal stature to defend yourself…especially in a theft situation. For example, if you are in your home and you hear something outside and someone is trying to steal your car, by law, you CANNOT shoot that criminal for theft. Unfortunately, as some might add. Now, if the criminal has a gun or a knife and dives at you, THEN you are justified.
Second thing I understand from this story is that criminals HAVE RIGHTS. As, in this case, as unfortunate as that may be, the town of Gilbert had to pay up because this cop wasn’t strong enough to take on a woman and a man by hand. He had the opportunity to detain, but drawing a weapon on an unarmed man is a no no. And you know what…sometimes, I feel like…darn, that’s too bad huh?
I mean shoplifting is one thing. Assaulting a police officer is WRONG and the criminals got paid and the tax payers of Gilbert… got jacked.
God Bless America.
