How fast can you start turning around?
Not very fast. Having no more information that exists in this article, it may not be surprising that a person that shoots another is detained until all of the facts can be acertained for certain. Personally, I think shooting another person is a serious act and should be investigated completely and I have no problem with the police taking a "reasonable" about of time doing so. There may be information that the police don't have and information that they do have which is not included in this initial report. I'll save my outrage for a little longer.

Interesting.

I wonder if a cop would held in confinement if there is some/any question as to the lawfulness of his use of lethal force vs. enjoying paid vacation that does not count against his vacation hours account.

...rhetorical question?

One thing I know is that if the perp backs down, don't shoot. But then the whole thing is in fluid dynamics things get complicated and Adrenalin flows. I am a member of USCCA, have been for years. I don't know if this CC is. He can get legal help.
