"Longmont officer shoots man suspected of assault" by The Associated Press is an article on the Denver Post about Longmont police officer is on routine paid leave after shooting and wounding a man wanted on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. Longmonts chief says police the officer shot the Brandon Duke in self-defense. The act supposedly happen because Brandon Duke shot at the police officer first with a semiautomatic rifle. This matters because it tells us that some police men can be very aggressive and if Duke really did shoot at the Longmont police officer the police officer did the right thing.
