So many people are quick to judge this officer, but none of those commenting were in his position. He had to make a serious decision in a split second. That decision likely determined whether he made it home at the end of his shift or not. Officers are trained to make these decisions and pray that they are never forced to do so. We should all be thankful that the vast majority of cops are out there trying to protect the public - even at the risk of their own personal safety. I would rather an officer make it home safely than attend an officer's funeral.
