MINEOLA, N.Y. (TheBlaze/AP) — Authorities say a police officer’s bullet killed a New York college student during the response to a home invasion at an off-campus home.
Nassau County homicide squad Lt. John Azzata said Saturday night that Andrea Rebello was killed by a police officer as she was being held in a headlock by a masked intruder.

I don’t fault the police officer. He was in a bad situation. It’s only int he movies that the bad guy can get shot and the hostage walks away.
Doesn’t anyone ask why was a repeat violent felon on parole in the first place. And, when he violated his parole, why wasn’t he scooped up?
Then, let’s talk about the “NY Safe Act” and the culture of “Victim Disarmament” that exists in New York, Chicago, LA, and New Orleans.
I don’t KNOW that an armed “good guy” could have changed the outcome. But, could it have made it any worse?
Is this an example of “political wishful thinking”?
The world is a dangerous place made even more so when the Sheeple and Clovers forgo their own defense.
