Black Lives Matter: The defense by the police and some in the public — the person shot had a bad record

Invariably, it seems, the exculpation for the police who may have killed a man or woman, is that cops are “good guys” and the guy or woman killed is a “bad guy.”  So it seems to me in light of the rush to exclaim over the Internet that the person killed was not such a good person.  There is no logic to this.  That a person killed was a bad person is not relevant to the issue of whether the police were acting in violation of the law, good sense, and common humanity.
