The victim in question had down syndrome. Instead of using their brains, they immediately resorted to force and killed a mentally disabled man, in this case over the price of a movie ticket.
Have no fear though folks because this is how the department is handling the situation.

Here comes the problem. At what point should you intervene if you see something like this happening? Many would say, “Not my problem” and you’re inviting a legal battle against you, but at the same time we should work to protect the weakest in society, especially from the current thugs that seem to take pleasure and joy in killing them for sport with government protection.* That’s why they’re working so hard to kill their hesitation right? With officers like these fine people here not to mention others like this, it’s no wonder the State of Maryland is fighting so hard to keep it’s citizens from actually being able to get concealed weapons permits.
