Brickbat: No Good Deed


Toy cop
Vincent Giordano /

When Mike Becker heard his family was being threatened by a man with a gun at an Independence, Missouri, store, he rushed to the scene with his own gun and confronted the man. Police arrived shortly after, and Becker put his gun down and raised his hands. Then he was shot by a cop."I was figuring, 'How the hell do they shoot him?' He never pointed a gun at the cops," said a witness. "He complied with everything they said."
