Well, this certainly doesn't fit the standard narrative of the MSM now does it?

Quote:Bystander Fired Deadly Shot, Not Officer

There were two big developments Monday in the case of a motorist who was shot and killed along Greenwell Springs Road Friday after a fight with a police officer. Investigators say an autopsy shows the deadly bullet was fired by a bystander, not the officer. Police also announced that no charges would be filed in the case, either against the police officer involved or the bystander who fired the fatal shot into the head of George Temple.

East Baton Rouge LA Sheriff's spokesman Greg Phares says Officer Brian Harrision was escorting a funeral procession Friday when he pulled Temple over and wrote him a ticket for breaking into the procession. According to Phares, that's when Temple attacked Harrison. Police say Perry Stevens was walking outside of the Auto Zone on Greenwell Springs Road when he heard Harrison yelling for help. Harrison was reportedly on his back with Temple on top of him. That's when Stevens went to his car and grabbed his .45 caliber pistol.

According to Col. Greg Phares, "[Mr. Stevens] orders Mr. Temple to stop and get off the officer. The verbal commands are ignored and Mr. Stevens fires four shots, all of which struck Mr. Temple."

Perry Stevens fired four shots into Temple's torso. Officer Harrison had already fired one shot into Temple's abdomen. With Temple still struggling with the officer, Perry continued to advance toward the scuffle.

"He again orders Mr. Temple to stop what he was doing and get off the officer. Those commands are ignored and he fires a fifth shot and that hits his head. The incident is over with, and as you know, Mr. Temple is dead."

Police are calling the shooting death justified. Perry Stevens has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Col. Phares would not give out any more details relating to the shooting. Both Phares and Baton Rouge Police Chief Jeff LeDuff stopped short of crediting Stevens with saving the officer's life. LeDuff says the entire incident is unfortunate.

"I spoke with his father at the scene briefly," said LeDuff. "I think this is a tragic situation all around."

9 News is told George Temple has a criminal record, and Officer Harrison was involved in a shooting while employed as a prison guard in East Baton Rouge Parish, where he was suspended for three days back in 1995.

I love a happy ending.

More people who violate traffic laws should end up that way.

Damn. 4 shots "to the torso" with a .45, 1 shot to the abdomen with an LEO service weapon, and the head shot finally stops him.

Wonder if he was chemically enhanced?

Pretty good shooting, too, to get five good hits on a dynamic target with a "friendly" target so close!

I wish the PD would credit the good samaratin for saving the cop. Credit going where credit is due, and all.

Can't do that; it legitimizes civilian carry. Dodgy

Thank goodness for the Cop that this is the ONLY civilian in America who is a responsible gun owner and trained just enough to be able to hit a target.

1. Gotta love the irony of a bad guy named "Temple" getting shot in the head.
2. Gotta love a citizen saving the LEO. I'm betting that LEO will always be a supporter of 2A for the rest of his life.
3. I hope the citizen doesn't work for the Auto Zone where the shooting happened. We all know what AutoZone thinks of employees and 2A.
4. Gotta love that all those shots with a .45 didn't kill the guy. I always smirk when I hear the "Yeah...one shot in the thumb with a .45 and the guy will die from trauma!" comments.

Wow, six bullets to get this guy off the cop....that's crazy! That's some amazing shooting by the good samaritan though. Major kudos to him. Extra major kudos for staying calm and for warning the dude TWICE before shooting (well, two different times).

I like how they bring up some random suspension of the cop's from the past though. I felt that was unnecessary and bringing up something over 15 years in the past is unfair and trying to put the cop in a bad light, when he was being victimized.

The media feels WAY too sorry for criminals these days. Obviously nobody in the media has ever had their back to concrete, fighting for their life. Dodgy
