Overkill or not. Had they not shot him, he might have shot someone. He would just be in jail and not done anything to him because maybe he was just a little crazy. Tax payers funds taking care of him. Someone else might have been killed. He would have got off on all the damage he could have done. OVERKILL was better.
I read in another post the reason they thought it was an overkill was because they said he was shot in the face many times over...It is possible the CPD thought he was wearing a bullet proof vest and maybe that is why they did shoot on his face who knows??? It is done did and no going back on that one.... It just sounds like suicide by cop to me since he did NOT want to go back to prison...SAD but its done did....May his family find a way to find closure of his death some how it can't be easy for them at all....

You have no idea what you are talking about! There was no judge or jury because they only went by what someone said about WHO did the shooting in Roswell! They couldn't identify him and I can guarantee if he had tried to shoot someone, he would have because he had hunted all his life and was a good shot!! All he was doing was trying to get the cops to back off! That's why not even a car was hit!

How is everyone doing in the aftermath of this situation? Did this lady go to counseling? What about those of you who experienced traumatic events in the war? Counseling might be worth it.

You got it as in bullets causing pieces or did you mean peace? Either way, the first was better.
