    For all those who think that officer Darren Wilson used excessive force when defending himself against Michael Brown, let the tragic death of officer David W. Smith be a lesson to you.

    Smith, an officer with the Johnson City, N.Y., Police Department, was fatally shot by a disturbed man who attacked him in his car and took away his gun, ending a law enforcement career of over 18 years.

    Smith was attacked after he responded to a disturbance call at a hospital at about 7 a.m. on March 31 of this year.

    After arriving at work that morning, one employee began arguing with others before finally assaulting one of them. Smith was dispatched to the hospital and the employee in question “ran out of the building waving his arms.”

    Smith hadn’t even gotten out of his police car when he was attacked by the employee, who managed to take the officer’s gun and shoot the officer three times where he sat.

    Fortunately, but too late for Smith, a second officer arrived and exchanged fire with the subject, who was killed, according to Officer Down Memorial Page.

    Eric Holder did not mention this case, did he?
