It had to have been in self defense though, my liberal college professor told me so.
A 19-year-old man was arrested and charged early Thursday with firing a gunshot at a Cincinnati police officer on Government Square.
No officers were hit, and the gun used was recovered after a foot pursuit about 10 p.m., said Assistant Police Chief Dave Bailey.
Absalon Ruff is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail on charges of felonious assault, carrying concealed weapons and having weapons under disability.
He was taken into custody shortly after police were called to Walnut and Sixth street for a report of a man with a gun about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Bailey said officers quickly apprehended the suspect in a foot chase under dire circumstances that easily could have wound up more severe.
“It’s remarkable what they did, so kudos to them,” said Bailey, a 30-year police veteran and the department’s highest ranking official after the police chief.
Ruff was shocked with a Taser stun gun because he resisted arrest, according to police.
This is more proof the police will use unnecessary force on innocent unarmed teenage Blacks.
