This happen because of a officer who was careless not thinking
and in result the officer who had the gun should of been more careful and perhaps used a different method to gain control instead not thinking ahead he killed his chief. Very poor way of dealing with the situation is what killed this chief not the gun..
The Human... PERIOD not acceptable ...
