The policeman has been fired and charged with assault.
And he should be.
The driver should not have moved as quickly as he did. You don’t make sudden moves when you’ve been pulled over; these guys are already at Red Alert.
Having said that, the cop was wrong to “shoot first and ask questions later”. Had he taken a good defensive position he would have been in a position to shoot if the driver had produced a gun instead of a license. I’m pleased that the driver was not killed by this, and I hope the former cop is charged and convicted.
