WATCH: COP DENIED IMMUNITY FOR KILLING UNARMED NAKED VETERAN SUFFERING FROM PTSD

Instead of reaching for his pepper spray or his Taser, a DeKalb County police officer drew his gun and killed an unarmed veteran suffering from bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Charged with felony murder and several other charges on in 2016, the officer claims the unarmed veteran was aggressively charging towards him even though witnesses dispute his “official” version of events. Now, a judge has ruled that the former cop is not entitled to immunity based on the self-defense claim.

Lawyers for Robert Olsen had argued he had the right to act in self-defense and that the charges against him should be dropped.

As FOX 5 reports, DeKalb County Superior Court Judge J.P. Boulee wrote in an order Tuesday that Olsen didn’t show he had reason to believe deadly force was needed to prevent death or serious injury to himself or someone else. The judge cited concerns about Olsen’s credibility and conflicting testimony.

“Any belief by Defendant that Hill was about to kill him and that deadly force was necessary to prevent the killing was not reasonable,” the judge wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on this judge for this decision.

Unfortunately, these wars of conquest have left many of our military in a compromised mental and emotional state, and the concoction of drugs they have been given, haven't helped much at all.

When our Vets are having adverse reactions to the drugs they have been given, they need IMMEDIATE evaluations, and should not have to wait for weeks for them to be "fit in" to the VA's schedule.

From the latest statistics, we understand the following:

VA reveals its veteran suicide statistic included active duty troops also

The article goes on to state:

"The VA released its newest National Suicide Data Report on Monday, which includes data from 2005 through 2015. Much in the report remained unchanged from two years ago, when the VA reported suicide statistics through 2014. Veteran suicide rates are still higher than the rest of the population, particularly among women.

In both reports, the VA said an average of 20 veterans succumbed to suicide every day. In its newest version, the VA was more specific."

This figure is horrifically alarming, particularly for anyone who has family or friends in our military.
