Why waving a gun at cops is a Bad Idea (tm) Part 2

Officers killed a 35-year-old man they said pulled a gun on them about 3:30 a.m. this morning on the city's west side.

The officers responded to reports of a man with a gun riding a bicycle on Buena Vista, Detroit Police Second Deputy Chief James Tate said.

Officers saw the man and approached him, Tate said. The man, who had a book bag with him, pulled a gun and the officers fatally shot the man, he said.

A gun was recovered at the scene, Tate said. (Detroit News)
Looks like the gene pool weeds another one out of the shallow end. Maybe there should be a public service announcement advertising campaign. "If you pull a gun on a cop, you are going to get shot."
