We are living in a police state. This is not at all what the Founding Fathers envisioned.
In this story, police shot a man for holding a water hose nozzle.
Police said they thought it was a gun.
They fired on the man, before ever even observing or asking a single question.
The tragedy was the loss of innocent life.
The second tragedy is that none of those officers are behind bars for the murder they just committed.
