An off-duty Baltimore officer shot by uniformed police during a fight outside a bar has died in a Baltimore hospital. CBS station WJZ-TV reported Officer Norman Stamp, 65, was a 44-year veteran of the police department. According to Bealefeld, the officers were trying to arrest the combatants when Stamp emerged from the bar armed with brass knuckles. Bealefeld says Stamp did not respond to an officer's order to stop. The officer fired a Taser, sending Stamp to the ground. Stamp drew a handgun, and Bealefeld says the officer had "no recourse" but to fire two shots from his own handgun. http://kdka.com/national/baltimore.police.officer.2.707328.html I just saw the police commissioner on TV giving a press conference on this shooting. The media seems to have the story correct. Seems like this was one tough old cop. If he would draw a gun on uniformed cops, I wonder what he would do to a civilian who got in his way?
