Today, the Baltimore Police Department made public the names of the three police officers who shot a man to death on Thursday for “taking a defensive stance.” According to FoxBaltimore.com, Officer Wilkes, a six year veteran of Baltimore County PD, Officer Besaw, an eight year veteran of Baltimore County PD, and Officer Stargel, a five year veteran of Baltimore County PD, were the officers involved in the deadly shooting. All three have been placed on administrative leave (A.K.A. paid vacation), pending an “investigation.”

Officers Wilkes, Besaw, and Stargel initially were called to a home after a report of a domestic disturbance taking place inside. After hearing sounds of a fight within the building, they forced their way in to the residence. Once inside, they encountered 41-year-old Spencer Lee McCain, who according to them took a “defensive stance.” It’s not really clear WTF that actually means, but by definition a “defensive” stance is not an offensive act. Regardless of that, the three officers responded with at least 19 gun shots killing McCain. Although they claim they believed he had a weapon, no weapon was ever found.

Obviously, after the in custody murder of Freddie Gray by other members of the Baltimore Police Department and the resulting riots, Baltimore tends to be on edge about that city’s police and their history of violence against its residents. This is not likely to make things better.
