When the cops finally arrived at the scene, what did they do? Ticketed him for discharging a firearm inside city limits, since
"there is no self-defense exception in Garner’s gun ordinance. Only a law enforcement officer may fire a weapon within town limits according to the local code."You have got to be kidding me.
Well, they don't call North Carolina "The California of the South" for nothing...
