Cop Shoots Attacker

A man begins pounding a cop's head into the pavement. The officer, fearing for his safety, fires two shots. This attack is eerily similar to the George Zimmerman case, with the exception that Zimmerman did not attempt to detain Martin; Martin initiated the first physical contact.

Legal Insurrection has more:

For a dramatic example of how quickly a fight can go bad even for a trained, experienced, and armed police officer against an unarmed aggressor -- an example with eerie parallels to George Zimmerman’s defensive shooting of Trayvon Martin -- see this bit of cellphone video.

It captures a Kansas City Police Officer having to go for his gun after an unarmed suspect he was attempting to arrest got the upper hand and started beating the police officer's head into the sidewalk. The officer fired twice, with one of those rounds tearing through the attacker's diaphragm, liver, and heart, and killing him.

Although these events took place last December 1, the video was only just released when the grand jury empaneled to review the shooting returned a "no bill" against Police Officer Donald Hubbard, meaning no criminal action will be taken against him for the shooting death of the attacker, 26-year-old Anthony Bruno. Bruno was himself an off-duty firefighter.

I don't know which is more amusing to me - this asshole getting his due or the idiotic bystanders, who were initially demanding the officer explain himself, screaming in shock.

It is very fortunate for this police officer that the suspect was not black. Otherwise, he would be, no doubt, facing charges of racism, hate crimes, and the wrath of leftists everywhere.

UPDATE: More about this case can be found HERE.
