Small men in uniform with big guns = formula for murder

Tomas J. Collazo, the rent-a-cop who killed Encinitas Local, Clay Randall Pardee weighs in at 123 pounds. He has no business being a security guard, let alone allowed to carry a gun, which he obviously needed to compensate for his lack of physical size. He clearly didn't have the confidence, due to his small size, to deal with Clay, the larger man. He got scared, but was too proud to back down or retreat. He had to stand his ground. If he truly wanted to retreat, he wouldn't have been backing up; he would have ran to call for help from a real cop. If he hadn't shot Clay, it would have been someone else sooner or later. This guy doesn't have the "right stuff" and I doubt if any government law enforcement agency would have ever allowed him to join their ranks.
