The news is out: [LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas police officer who allegedly told a colleague that he’d shoot through the door if any protesters came to his home has been charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of a fellow officer who knocked on his door, authorities said Thursday.
Calvin Salyers, a 33-year-old officer in the Little Rock suburb of Alexander, surrendered on Wednesday in the June 3 fatal shooting of Officer Scott Hutton, the state police said.
Hutton, 36, went to Salyers’ home to pick up a patrol unit and was shot through the door after knocking on it, a state police investigator said in an arrest affidavit. Salyers told investigators he grabbed his handgun before he went to the door and saw a figure on his porch wearing a dark shirt and with a gun on his hip.
Salyers told investigators his gun went off when he transferred it from his right to his left hand and reached for the doorknob. On a 911 call, Salyers can be heard saying, “All I seen was a gun, it was an accidental discharge,” the affidavit said.]
That’s what they do best. If they can kill members of the public, they can double-tap their own.
