Skip to comments.Officer in Costco shooting says man raised gun, didn’t know it was in holster

This comes from a Vegas paper, so I'll summarize:
Day 1 of the inquest into the police shooting of Eric Scott at a Las Vegas Costco emphasized the large amount of prescription painkillers found in his body. The assistant DA suggested Scott was suicidal.
Day 2 apparently spent a bunch of time explaining why there will be no video...basically, the machines weren't working, sorry.
Then the cop who was closest to Scott testified. In his testimony, he says the gun found by investigators was in its holster, and that he didn't realize the gun was in its holster when he shot Scott. That info comes about 2/3 of the way into the article:

If the LVPD murderers on the Costco firing squad would have stopped to get those little electric Costco carts for the disabled, it might have saved Erik's life...
It is not flaming it is educating. The right to keep and bear arms is such an important subject it would be helpful if the clueless read and learned rather than posted nonsense.
If one doesn’t even know what something is they should refrain from acting like an expert on it.
A “sealed weapon permit” is not a typo for concealed carry permit or concealed handgun license. It is proof positive of ignorance on the entire subject.
The subsequent posts are further proof.
So you didn't read any of the other threads.
Apparently you didn't read this article either. Scott was given conflicting commands. He didn't "draw" on the police.
The cops had to get the Costco snitch to identify the target, who was just standing around, like all the other innocent bystanders
Getting a guy executed sux even worse, Shai.
Look. The "drugs" angle is just for the smear.
Finally. A picture of the perp.
It would be a bummer for you if you accidentally got on Shia Lierly's nerves while you were picking up some pistachios, and he fingered you for the local NKVD squad.
The holster? Not only did he go directly to Scott and touch him on his right arm but Mosher was only 6 ft. away when he fired the first shot.
Funny.....the Cops in my family say this was way over the top reaction by the cops....quote “The cover-up is always worse than the crime”
so the cops really didnt kill scott, it was the EMTs fault...
NKVD Metro likes it this way. They can execute you between donut breaks, and get paid OT for a rigged dog-and-pony show Free Day Friday.
Actually ... my point was that the holster doesn’t make much difference. You can shoot through a holster.
So they didn’t really kill Erik Scott because he was already dead from a morphine overdose?
Yet, in far less difficult circumstances, these Las Vegas pigs killed a West Point grad who was none of the above.
If I'm getting felt up, they've got more to worry about from my wife than from me.
in Indiana, i never went to a cop and asked, but was told by several gunshop guys, who deal leo trades, that the permit was concealed only...FWIW...
"Conservatives" like him are one of the big reasons why we have a Police State in all but name.
"Squeal like a pig!"
If that were my son this fat POS murdered he would be looking over his shoulder every single day of the rest of his short life.
Actually, he used the proper term “concealed”, which you changed to “sealed”.
He may be beating a straw man, but that’s not the one.
