BUT IF SOMEONE HAD SHOT A VIDEO, IT WOULD BE A FELONY: Off-Duty Officer Fatally Shoots Unarmed Marine.

According to Baltimore City police, Tyrone Brown — a 32-year-old Marine who has served two tours of duty in Iraq — was shot 13 times at close range. He died a short time later.

Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the officer shot and killed Brown, saying Brown made advances toward a woman who was with the officer.

“After the advances, the officer and the individual exchanged words,” Gugliemi said. “There was an argument, and the altercation turned physical. At that point, the officer pulled out his service weapon and fired multiple shots at our victim.”

I’m beginning to think that cops in Maryland should be watched all the time. But instead, they’re granted anonymity: “The officer, who Guglielmi said is a 15-year veteran, has not been named. Police said they are investigating whether alcohol was a factor. The officer declined to take an alcohol breath test.”
