Not all stories are treated equally by the mainstream media. In other stories where the criminal was not taken care of, it can turn into a plea for gun control.
“An armed man was gunned down by a retired NYPD officer as he allegedly robbed patrons at a Queens bar on Monday. The fatal shooting happened at Parkside Pub on 149th Street in Whitestone at 3:53 a.m."
Police said 24-year-old Andrew McClean walked into the pub waving a gun and announced a robbery. He took money from the cash register and then stole from some customers before the former cop fatally shot him, according to police.
The New York Daily News says The former cop who fatally shot a would-be robber in a Queens pub “acted properly from what we can see right now,” according to the NYPD’s chief of detectives.
