4:41 pm
police tell the man to put down the gun, he does not, then he shoots him and gets criticized. when you think of these cases, remember that they are between a rock and a hard place. they are darned if they do and darned if they doesn't. >> imagine the criticism if he put that individual down armed with just a skateboard. >> yes. but where is he, coma in the hospital. i do not think we should be so critical of the police officers all of the time. lets send things over to mark for a look at what the rest of the week is shaping up to be like. >> the clouds have cleared out nicely. you see the camera looking towards san francisco. a fie high clouds adding a nice
