In a sad final chapter to the Andrea Rebello story, it turns out she was actually killed by a police officer. After the intruder pointed a gun at the cop, the police officer pumped ten rounded into the 30-year-old man. The problem with that action was the fact that the 21-year-old Hofstra student was being held in a headlock by the intruder.

I really don’t understand what the Nassau County cop was thinking. He was right to protect himself when he had a gun pointed at him — but eight shots? One or two to the dome would have done the trick. But you fire off eight toward a man holding an innocent victim in a headlock — and you’re just asking for this tragic accident.

Sure, you blame the intruder the most. But this police officer needs some blame too, in my opinion. If he or she can’t make the right decision under pressure, the cop needs a new job. Maybe I’m wrong and I’m missing a key detail … but it sounds cut and dry to me right now.
What do you think? Should the police officer be partially blamed for killing Andrea Rebello? Let us know in the comment section below.
