statement said police approached the suspect and a struggle ensued. At
some point during the struggle, an officer shot Taylor.

Who'd have thunk that crashing into a business at 1am and fighting with the police would turn out badly?



The usual 'good kid', after all he had only 1 drug charge and completed probation.





I don't know if it was a good shoot ot not but these articles implying that the police need to be taking incoming rounds before they can shoot are pretty stupid.

Was Taylor:
Drunk?
On drugs?
Was in a drug / alcohol fueled accident?
Was he an actual criminal?
Was he fighting with the police officer because he was drunk / on drugs and thought he could get away?
Was he fighting with the police officer because he wanted to kill him?

IIRC , in Waco, which should have similar requirements, the max age is one day before 45th birthday on the date the applicant takes the entrance exam.  





Some depts waiver age based on military service.

"The Star-Telegram reported that court records it reviewed showed Taylor was sentenced to six months of deferred adjudication last December on a drug charge stemming from a September 2013 traffic stop in which police reported Taylor was found with 11 hydrocodone tablets not prescribed to him. The case was dismissed July 14 after Taylor satisfied the requirement of his probation. He graduated from Summit High School in Mansfield, Texas, in 2014."

It's not even in the same siht hole county, home to a major league baseball team and America's football team.  On the other hand, it's starting to look a lot more "dallas".


And from the article "They say he's burglarizing the place by running up in there? Nuh-uh. Something doesn't sound right,"

You wont know that til the autopsy results are released and that'll take time.
For instance, the NY prison escapee was killed over a month ago and they just released autposy results that show he was drunk

One of our guys retired over 20 years ago, pretty much maxed out on age here
He moved south and reportedly is still running around the Carolinas in his late 70s or early 80s employed by some agency down there

IIRC, the cop who shot the ISIS-inspired attackers in Garland, TX (when they were having that draw a picture of Mohammad contest), was in his late 50's or early 60's.
