I'm Henry Porter's niece and today is the first day I've seen the report on what happened and i doubt there was body cams on the officer in 1975 so if Henry was clearly shot just not injured as badly he obviously was also assaulted with a deadly weapon just had a better aim and officer died instantly and well my uncle got to say his good byes, and had the opportunity to get right with GOD, and enjoy a steak dinner before he left. His memory still lives on through his brothers,daughter, grandkids, and extended family. I would've liked to get to meet him so till then I can at least write a reflection stating that Henry my father's older brother is loved and thought . Love you uncle Henry your niece Olivia S.
