I think it is significant that the shooting cop didn’t know the gun was still in its holster.

The officer testified that he has a holster just like it, and that he knows the gun can be fired while it's in the holster.

Costco employees may have unintentionally set up the chain of events.

I thought that was possible when this story was first reported, but now after seeing the report of the Costco employee's testimony, I think he was justified in his actions and everything he reported to the police. Also now knowing that the deceased had very high amounts of morphine and xanax in his system is another factor.

Actually, the cop specifically testified that at the time he fired, he didn’t know Scott’s gun was in a holster. It was only later, when he saw the gun in its holster on the ground, that he realized the gun was still hostered.

The Costco employee testified Scott wasn’t acting like a threat. However, the call to 911 made it sound like a nutcase was in the store.

And Rush Limbaugh is proof that you can have high levels of prescription drugs in you and still act normal.

Sounds like Porkie the Executioner had plenty of time to think that load of manure up...
