All the people who comment here are people that doesn't like police at all especially the news caster, The story is not complete, a sane person can't just pull his trigger on someone just because of ordinary face mask. if the reader also a sane person can't just conclude and agreed that the man was shot because of face mask. there must be a something that they didn't tell us. a slight mistake of police everybody will flair up and began to pour all sort of nonsense, if you investigate this matter very well you will understand what I mean and you will believe me. pls. don't miscut me, not that iam supporting what the police man did.
