Klamath Falls Police Officer Justified

Police InvestigationKLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A grand jury says a Klamath Falls police detective was justified in using deadly force against Matthew David Borner last week.

The shooting happened August 20. Police say Borner ran from a building and did not stop when police told him to. They say he took something black out of his pocket that officers believed was a gun.

Four rounds were fired and two of the shots hit Borner in the chest area. Borner died at the scene. The investigation revealed that Borner did not have a firearm in his pocket, but the grand jury has cleared the officer who fired the shots.

    Why won’t you poste the entire press release. The one that mentioned Borner stating he was going to shoot the Detective x2, while walking towards him and drawing a black object from his pocket. The same release that discloses Borner is a known drug dealing, dangerous felon, who knew he was going to federal prison for a long time and told family members he was considering the cowardly act of suicide by cop. The same release that mentions his 8 current other pending criminal cases. Slanted much?
