This guy the more you hear about him had serious issues. This night, a LOT of people got lucky. First, his girlfriend, the. The officers that gave chase at night while he had a gun (That is not a well lit area at night),; and right by the Pavillion where stray shots could have killed someone 1/4 mile away. Hate to say it; but it was better to end it here the way it turned out with this guy rather then wait for another scenario later that would not have turned out so well.
What's amazing is someone somewhere wasn't killed by this guy earlier.

For someone with knowledge of what happened only extending as far as what is being reported, you couldn't be more sadly mistaken. Also for yourself, someone who did not know him personally, for you to say that "someone somewhere" is lucky for him to not have killed them couldn't be more ignorant and incorrect. There is always a flip side to each story, that flip side in this circumstance you do not know. If you did know those details then you probably wouldn't have posted what you did above. Reporters are only going to report what they are told and will make the best story, these cops are only going to report what wouldn't incriminate them (like it or not), and shallow-minded people (like yourself) are only going to believe every bit of the one side of it being reported. There are details of this situation that will likely never surface, details that would without a doubt make the general public have a much different outlook on this. For that fact alone, you should feel ashamed of yourself for saying that "it was better to end it here", meaning him losing his life. In no way saying that some choices could have been made to make the situation surely end differently, but I am saying you should have some respect and realize that you don't know anything but a fraction of the events that led to this. Bottom line, have some respect. This man lost his life, his son is now without a father, and his family are now without him. Put yourself in their shoes and think about how you would feel if people were saying this about someone in your family, you probably wouldn't like it very much.
