Obviously Fredrick just doesn't care, obviously he's a moron and shows no respect to authority, hell her shot at cops before. Imagine the scene, guy in wheelchair lunges to take a cops gun, whoa!

What an awkward situation for the second officer that entered the scene. Here's a wheelchair bound inmate lunging towards and trying to take a gun from a fellow officer. Plus he was in that "split second" decision mode where he had to make that choice to fire his weapon. Wow!

A new trial was set for Fredrick Goss, and hopefully he's fully strapped down and can only nod.
