This story makes me heart-sick. All of the details will be analyzed by those investigating and the public will only hear about the most obvious and least critical details. There is so much that is not published, not shared and can't be rationalized; few people ever hear the whole story unless it goes to a jury.
The debates over 'toy vs. replica' or 'shoot first ask questions later', ultimately are just factors in the more important issue of the lack of communication.
My prayers are with the Lopez family and all others who are feeling pain at the loss of Andy Lopez. My prayers are with the investigators, that they will look into every factor and truly find where justice lies. My prayers are with the officers that if/when they return to duty it will be with a greater sense of diplomacy and compassion.
