Re: Oklahoma lieutenant indicted for stopping active shooter

Watch the video. After firing multiple rounds at a fleeing suspect, quite possibly endangering others, that LT. and his men catch up to the wounded, if not already expired, suspect in her small truck. He tells his men, at the side of the road, not to talk about this shooting, even amongst themselves for several "sleep cycles". That. to me, sounds dangerously like a conspiracy charge is warranted, as well as maybe obstruction. The LT. specifically cites the Oklahoma investigative authority, not to talk to them. If it were me, I would indict him and have a jury decide if his actions, including the shooting, were illegal.

Re: Oklahoma lieutenant indicted for stopping active shooter

If you took the time to read the story, "a state grand jury determined that Lt. Mitchell engaged in “imminently dangerous conduct” without excusable or justifiable cause by firing approximately 60 rounds during the gun battle". Even if the officer fired only 30 rounds at the suspect when (she?) was cornered, that's a ton of lead flying around. He's not being indicted for stopping an active shooter, he's being indicted, correctly if you ask me, for basically continuing to shoot after the threat had been stopped and endangering fellow officers and the community.
