Agree. He should not have fired. He should have simply called the police.
Anyone else notice how all these articles keep pointing out and actually stressing the 'Black teenage girl' thing? From what I have read, he had no idea what color her skin was.
Why does the press think this detail is so important? Isn't it enough to say "a teenage girl was shot"? Why does it always have to be "Black teenage girl was shot"? Do not understand that at all. If she was White, would they report the death of "a White teenage girl"? Or would they just say "a teenage girl".
More proof, as if any was needed, that Liberals are race obsessed and are the most racist people on the planet.
But, back on topic, you really should never ever shoot through a door unless you know for sure exactly who it is, and are sure they mean to do harm.
If you are not sure, then just wait it out, if you are that afraid, or open the door and confront the issue, ready.
Either way you should call the cops first, which is probably what she would have done if they allowed her in.
