Quote of the Day: 14 Years for This? Edition

“I see he’s got a gun in his hand. As he’s walking toward me, he racks the gun. My first instinct was to shoot him, but he’s got his gun out already and I can’t. He puts his gun to my temple and tells me he wants my money. I’m thinking I’m going to try to throw the money between his legs and make him turn around; then I’ll shoot him. But he gets nervous and says, ‘Don’t move. If you grab my gun I’ll shoot you in the face.’ I said, ‘What are you doing? I’m the police.’ But he started shooting. I knew I was hit but I felt no pain. I heard God’s voice tell me, ‘You won’t be hurt.'” – Detroit Police Officer Arthur Matthews  (above) [via officer.com]
