Off-Duty Officer Kills Unarmed Marine

Police say Tyrone Brown, 32, a husband and father of two, died after being hit by six of those shots, which were fired at close range by officer Gahiji Tshamba, 36.

The cause of the mayhem may have been an advance made toward a woman that Tshamba was with. If that's not the most ridiculous reason to open fire in public and risk hitting other people, I'm not sure what is.

"After the advances, the officer and the individual exchanged words," Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Gugliemi said. "There was an argument, and the altercation turned physical. At that point, the officer pulled out his service weapon and fired multiple shots at our victim."

Right!

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that Brown may have been joking and touched the bottom of a female companion that Tshamba was with. The woman may have taken a swing at Brown, when Tshamba drew his weapon.

Brown's touching of the woman's bottom was entirely inappropriate even if he was joking, but it is certainly not worthy of death. Brown apologized after the incident and was walking away when the shots rang out.

Guns and alcohol do not mix. The latest example of this truism comes from Baltimore, where a Marine veteran of the Iraq war was killed after he was shot at 13 times by an off-duty police officer. Police are investigating
