Cop allowed man to beat her, afraid that shooting him would lead to charges
I'm sorry We don't allow people, especially cops, to defend themselves from society's finest. It's sad, and unfair. But, it was the right thing to do in this situation......
You had to protect yourself, and you did by not shooting him. The physical pain will heal.....but you won't have your little kids or family threatened by thugs and douchebags.
Actually, you will still get death threats. I'm sorry. They will still want you dead just because of your job title. Despite the fact that you didn't actually do anything.
You will also be looked down upon - these thugs will see you as weak and will go after you.
I see the comments - and they still blame you for getting beaten up. things like "The only reason this is a story is because the man is X color" and "Kill or be killed".
But, that's not your fault. This world is the problem....and I'm so so sorry.
