Hero or Murderer? A Columbus Ohio police officer shot and killed a sixteen-year old girl who was attempting to stab another woman she had wrestled up against a car. The officer had walked into a chaotic scene of screaming and shouting and one victim already on the ground after being forewarned by the 911 dispatcher that a female perpetrator with a knife was assaulting people. Is the officer a hero for saving the life of the second intended victim or a murderer for shooting the teen with the knife?
