Glad the officers apparently are going to recover - it also appears that the perp is deceased and is no longer a threat.

Happy that these officers will survive, but what we don't hear about is what their lives are like after. Three bullets in the arm may not kill you, but if that arm isn't able to function properly, it is life changing.

And the candidate (Democrat) for Florida governor thinks police should not draw there guns and maybe just not have guns.

I wonder whether stricter federal gun control laws could have prevented this unfortunate occurrence. Hopefully the bodycam footage will clearly show it was a good shoot, and not a revenge killing, so that the taxpayers do not have to shell out money for law suits designed to determine whether the shooting was a good one or a revenge killing.
