Bad Guys Making Bad Life Decisions

The morning television news threw me for a loop today. The very first story I saw after the TV cut on was about the officer-involved shooting at the Burger King the other day, and released the name of the IMPD who had to shoot the dude using his backup gun. Turns out I know the guy. I first met him at MAG-40 up in Rochester, and he was an assistant instructor at the carbine class I took from Uncle Pat. Sometimes it's an uncomfortably small world.

That bad guy picked the wrong officer to throw down with, but better him than some other less experienced, less trained cop who might have panicked.
