    Default Officer Clinton Fox, was legally justified in his actions.

    By Matt Agorist - October 5, 2017


    Salt Lake City, UT — Earlier this year, the Free Thought Project reported on the Salt Lake City Police Department’s training program which taught officers de-escalation tactics and how that has prevented their officers from killing since 2015.

    However, at least one officer has forgotten that training and a recent killing, captured on body camera, has ruined their non-lethal streak. To make matters worse, this man was attempting to flee when he was killed and the officer who did it was justified.

    On Wednesday, the Salt Lake City District Attorney’s Office announced that the officer who killed 50-year-old Patrick Harmon, officer Clinton Fox, was legally justified in his actions.

    A letter disseminated Wednesday afternoon by District Attorney Sim Gill’s office said that “After conducting an Officer Involved Critical Incident (OICI) review, the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office has determined that the August 13, 2017 Use of Deadly Force by a Salt Lake City Police Department officer in [sic] was legally justified.”

    “Officer Fox said that in 10 years of law enforcement and two military deployments, it was the scariest situation he had ever been in,”

    The people should be armed so as to defend themselves from criminals, not so as to overthrow the government,

    It's all bull$#@!.

    "I was scared and feared for my safety" are the magick words and phrases that get them a Get Out Of Jail Free card.

    That cop wasn't scared or fearful, he was pissed that his authoritah was being disregarded.

    I'm literally nauseated after watching that video and even more so that the cop will face no consequences....

    Can anyone see the knife? Maybe another police cam?

    At one point, Harmon stopped running and turned around to face the pursuing officers while holding a knife, according to the report.

    "Fox said Mr. Harmon came at the officers with something in his hand. Officer Fox said he was terrified by how close Mr. Harmon was to the officers when Mr. Harmon stopped and turned toward them," the report states. "Officer Fox said he feared if he didn’t immediately use deadly force, Mr. Harmon was going to stab him and/or the other officers."
