Lawrence's tox screen may prove interesting, too.

Lawrence had orders of protection from two different women. I would not be surprised if the animal belonged to one of them or to someone else that he had bad feelings about. I stand by my use of sketchy.

I will give him credit for taking it to the shelter rather than killing it, though.
There is no mention of him having a weapon, that from multiple sources. If he had one believe me they would have said so right away. I was a cop myself, but I don't take everything at face value either. I'd like to see the video on this one. I knew some officers that would escalate a situation just by their attitude and the way they handled things. The fact he had a protection order has nothing to do with this at all. He did not assault anyone at the shelter. He was upset they wouldn't take the cat without ID that suited them. They should have put the animals welfare first and accepted his paper as a sovereign citizen. They said they kept telling him to calm down (before shooting him), why didn't the officer just take the cat in and drop it off for him. That's how I would have handled it. The cat would have been safe and he would still be alive. And that surely would have calmed him down.

Then you read of stories like this. This poor dog in Alabama, shot in the head and left to die. Luckily the dog was found and survived. If anyone should be shot it's the SOB that shot this dog. And a few of the morons that commented too.
