It is not my intention to hijack this thread, but if you are going to bring this up, then clarification is in order.
Mr Scott did not have a gun in his hand. One of the police officers yelled at him to drop his gun. It's awfully hard to drop it until you reach for it.
Mistakes were made on all sides. The shoot was a bad one.
