Before we start. It should be known I have a great appreciation for the men and women who go behind the badge everyday. Law enforcement officers receive a lot of undue hate because of false narratives perpetuated by the main stream media. With that being said sometimes there are mistakes that are made.
Ok, so this is not a good look for the Jersey City P.D. Playing devil’s advocate I can see how one could mix up the suspect and victim in the heat of the moment, literally. But still, even if the man on fire was in fact the suspect, I think being engulfed in flames makes him relatively subdued. Regardless this was handled pretty poorly.
