So, if someone is setting off ‘legal’ fireworks, and that startles a cop, the person setting off the fireworks should expect to get shot dead if a cop is anywhere close at hand? Their story thus far about being startled into shooting by a loud sound is just pure bunk!

Unbelievable, isn’t it? Indeed, it is!
Sometimes, Kenneth, it’s important to hold a mirror up to people to show them how ridiculous they are.
