Producing a gun

This police shooting story out of Kentucky sounds eerily similar to the one I mentioned earlier in Memphis.
Two differences. The cop in Kentucky seems to have a history of "shot first, questions later". And, rather than describing it as "pulling a gun" it's described as "producing a gun".

In neither case did language take that extra little step of actually making a direct claim that the gun was pointed at the cop or that there was an appearance of threatening behavior other than just holding the gun. Maybe they weren't sure if there were independent witnesses or not. I don't know. I just don't trust them.
