Summaryhttp://Victim had pulled a knife on a cab driver and ordered him to the location where officers (responding to the report of the cab driver) found him. He was extremely intoxicated and holding two pool cues. Officers released a K-9 dog which bit him, but according to reports, did not slow him down. As conditions were "too windy" for spray or tazer, the officer shot and killed the victim. This caused some controversy as the victim was a veteran of the Marines. Cindy McCain (wife of Sen. John McCain) came under fire from the police station for praising the victim's service posthumously over Twitter. http://www.azcriminallawsexcrimes.com/social-justice-politics/is-scottsdale-police-lying-about-jason-edward-prostrollo-wind-that-day-average/
