That and Cops are ONLY Human and don't have Super Senses.
And this is Wichita they are talking about. The town isn't called "Little Detroit" for nothing. Parts of that town are pure war zones. I don't blame the cop for being nervous.

While not a policeman, i faced the same situation multiple times in the Army.
Been reading on this here and there, and ppl are just straight up calling for the officer's head, proclaiming police brutality, calling psycho...
...the best way to not have had this happen was to not have instigated it in the first place.
And thats pretty much all i've got to say about this.
Bullshit. What did he think would happen by telling the cops this man was HOLDING PEOPLE HOSTAGE?
You have to have your head under a god damn rock to live in this country and not think calling the cops and telling them some dude has shot one person and is holding others hostage might end in tragedy.
And I just disagree with your overall logic. For instance, I am all for punishing someone who lies about being raped with the same punishment you'd give a rapist. And this person had no qualms about getting someone else in legal trouble for something they didn't do. Nah, f*ck that, and I'm not saying give him equal punishment. Killers should be summarily executed the moment guilt is 100% certain. This guy just needs plenty of jail time.

Something other than his death. The burden is on the prosecution to prove the man dying was his intention.
That isn't relevant to what I'm arguing.
Nope. Lying about rape isn't as bad as actually raping someone imo.
Which should get him in legal trouble, not life in prison,
1. Guilt is never 100% certain
2. "Plenty of jail time", which I'm fine with, is different than life in prison which is the maximum punishment several states handout. The cop also shouldn't be safe from blame. He acted as if someone was a threat without first confirming they were a threat. The cop was the one who killed a man without any evidence of the hoaxer's claim.
There's no justification for the officer not being punished in some way.
He didn't have a weapon, you gigantic ****ing retard.
"But maybe he did have one"
I would imagine that "not being blind" is a pre-requisite for being a police officer. An officer should be able to tell if someone is drawing a weapon or not.
You need to take a moment to assess your retarded position here. You are literally asserting that it is justified for police to murder citizens as long as they "feel" threatened. If that's the position you actually hold then I hope that one day you or someone you love gets pulled over by police and shot immediately.

I'm fairly sure that if a death occurs during the commission of a crime, you can be charged with that death; and swatting is illegal.
