Shoot first, ask questions later

A Bakersfield police officer answering a report of a man with a gun shot and killed an unarmed 73-year-old as he stood in a neighbor's driveway, authorities said. The man's family said he was in the early stages of dementia.Francisco Serna was declared dead at the scene about 1:15 a.m. Monday, the Kern County coroner said in a statement.Police had arrived about 12:30 a.m., and when a witness pointed to Serna, one officer fired several rounds and killed him, Bakersfield police spokesman Sgt. Gary Carruesco tells KBAK-TV and the Los Angeles Times.No gun was turned up in a search of the scene, Carruesco said.
Fresno does it the same way.  It makes cops cheap but citizens should be aware, we hire dummies and give them guns.  Folks with dementia need to wear a 'Don't shoot' T-shirt.
