Police Shooting POV

    Palestine Police Department has released body camera footage of Sgt. Green and Officer Griffin who were involved in a shooting of a suspect who pulled a gun. Warning, the video is graphic.


    Here is the footage from Sgt. Green’s camera. Looks like he might have used a Viridian light/laser.


    Here is the footage from Officer Griffin.


    The officers were very lucky. If you watch the suspect take out his pistol, it feels like an eternity. His hand draws the pistol and his arm makes this long arc to swing the pistol over. If he had been more expedient and efficient, one or both officers may have been shot.
