A couple of days ago, a news story from Charlotte made the rounds: a network tech was shot by a police officer while working on an upgrade to a cellular phone tower. The worker was carrying a gun, presumably because he was working alone at night in a “rough neighborhood.” The officer claimed that he identified himself but the cellular worker wouldn’t put down his weapon, and the cop shot him.

Turns out the one of the factors in the shooting may have been noise from the cooling units that prevented the worker from hearing the officer identify himself.
