Also, this is kinda hard for me because some of you old timers will recall that I didn't particularly like my father in law. The people I love did, though, and I would do anything to ease their pain.
You are right to do what you can for those you love... Sometimes having someone in the wings ready to help with other stuff can help those "in the trenches" do what they need to do.

((((hugs to you and yours)))) i'm sorry for your family's loss.

I have a few questions about how it played out though. If he did have his gun leveled in the firing position then I can see that maybe a cop would draw and fire without directing him to put the weapon down. But if he had it at his side, then he should have given the person an order to drop the weapon, but again, if the cop is hiding you dont know who is telling you to drop the weapon.
Personally, If I could not identify them as cops, I would not have even opened the door, and called 911.

In this week's "No punishment too severe" category, a woman sold her baby daughter to a man so he could use her in child porn.

And he was stupid enough to text about what he was going to do.

Theonly good thing in the whole morass is that the kid will probably not remember much eing so young.

Execute them both, after torturing them daily for a year.

Today's absurdity:
One of the cardinal electors for the next Pope said ties to anyone guilty of sexual misconduct whether intended or unintended COULD put a man's candidacy IN QUESTION IF it could distract from his spiritual mission.
WTF? Could? In question?? If???
Shouldn't it be a little more definite than that? Especially in light of the Catholic church's history in that regard? Ya' know, since we're talking about who's going to be the friggin' Pope? I mean, he's only the leader of the Catholic church and one of the 3 or 4 most important religious figures in the world. I'm not a believer, so it doesn't really matter to me, but I would think that if the highest standards should ever apply, this would be one of those times.
I'm not seeing a problem with this statement at all.

Define ties. If someone who works in my office is one day arrested for sexual misconduct, I have ties to that person, but that person's misconduct is not a reflection on me in any way.

So if some priest commits a sexual misdeed, and a candidate for pope wentto seminary school with him, or served in the same parish with him at one time, you're saying it should without question put his candidacy in question? because he has ties to the pedo priest?

Then you and I simply differ on this topic.(Knock me over with a feather!) The new Pope, coming in on the heels of a regime rife with questions/doubts/suspicions/cr iticisms relative to the handling of incidents and allegations sexual molestation, should (IMO) have immaculately clean hands. Your comparision to one of your co-workers being a perv is misguided at best. You really want to compare your situation/obligations to the Pope's? If the Pope-elect worked in a parish/church/whatever with someone accused/convicted of misconduct, there will be (right or wrong) questions about what the Pope-elect knew, didn't know, did, should have did, etc. That is not something the new Pope and the Catholic church, in the current climate, can afford to have hanging over their heads. I think it would be unwise at best.

Here are a few other things I remember from the news stories from when it took place.

The homeowner had one of those door chains that only allow it to be opened a few inches unless you unlatch it. He opened the door a few inches, with the chain on, gun in hand and tried to look out to see who was banging on his door. The officer fired through the door mulitple times killing him. The officer never identified himself or ordered him to drop the gun.

I COMPLETELY disagree!

I thought it was a law that police officers MUST identify themselves.

What about this scenario: police chase a man who ducks down an alley. My house is right next to the ally. They lose sight of him so ASSUME he must have run into my house. They follow suit, don't identify themselves because they don't want to give themselves a way. I'm sleeping peacefully until I hear someone crashing through my door. I grab my 9 and come investigate. The police see a gun in my hand, don't identify themselves or shout any orders, and instead shoot me dead.

Justifiable or murder?

This just makes it worse.

The officer should be charged with first degree murder.

Interesting bit on NPR yesterday where they had business analysts examine the issues the Catholic church faces and give them "business" advice. It was pretty interesting, and respectful as well. One conclusion: The CC would be advised to fully 'fess up as to the masterful coverup of moving child predator priests around to different jurisdictions -- only that way could they start to re-earn the trust of Catholics around the world.
It's especially tough when I read about women (poor women, women who'd had abortions, prostitutes, mentally ill people-- but mostly,*poor* women who had no voice) who were essentially kidnapped by the CC in Ireland and then put to work as slave laborers for their entire lives.
The Irish government recently issued an acknowledgement and apology to those women.
I just saw a movie about this a couple weeks ago. Damn I can't remember the name of it. It was a movie not a documentary, but basically these women were imprisoned in a convent, for life. So way wrong.

Unless I'm mistaken, 1st degree = premeditated. This would be manslaughter.
