This whole story sounds “made up” – it is a mechanism for…
Sad man crying and being “violent”, and “seen in possession of a gun” and “waving it”, by a “member of the public”.
Police turn up, shoot man dead.
Police happy: end of story.
Guns = bad. Stalinism = good. Killing of 30 million Russians who opposed collectivism = good (as they had no guns.)
“Mums” = happy.
