not only that but If you read other posts on this sight you will read that the dead guy who's name is Anthony was wearing black latex gloves and was approached by the off duty cop and was questioned, which at that point reached for something by his waistband . Off duty cop was npt going to wait and see if he had a weapon of any sort. He made the wrong move and paid the with his life.

John Q Law was wrong when he used deadly force on a defendant/suspect when he was off duty and the dead guy up to that point had broken no laws. Other than standing and looking around that is not a crime in the USA. If Mr Law wanted to have a little more plausible excuse for shooting this man, maybe he should have done a personal stake out and wait for mr dead guy to just break the window or try and pop the lock before he decides to be judge jury and executioner. This wasn't a life or death situation until he ran up on two people he didn't like. He got scared when they weren't giving him any respect because he didn't have his uniform no back up and no flashing lights so he said u eff it. If the dead guy had a baby in his hand OK. If he had some stolen property OK. But just because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time u shouldn't get shoot by a cop with training and who should have known better.

Look genius read the full story. The guy was wearing gloves and also the chick that was with h said that they were braking into cars. And I'm sure if you were confronted by an off duty cop who had a gun pointed at you, you wouldn't go and reach for anything by you waistband, unless you a F'ing idiot. And that's how you get worked. Use the half of brain that you have and think about it.

It's even stupider to kill someone for maybe thinking about attempting a burglary.

The man who was shot was a gang member who had tattoos all over his head. At the time he was killed, he had burglary tools in his waistband ad was wearing gloves. He was in the complex at 2:00am in the morning and did not ilve there. The deputy's actions were 100% JUSTIFIED.

It was not justified. The victim could simply be arrested and not shot at.

It's so refreshing to know that we have so many police use of force experts in this world to pass judgment on the mindset of trained police officers. Good for you Attorney. It's also good to know that you are among the very rarest of individuals who can ALWAYS place your shot in the leg, the big toe, the hand that may have held the gun, the trigger finger thereby making the crook unable to return fire, etc. With all your training and expertise you should hold weekly seminars and give your gift to humanity by training, um, re-training police officers in the skill of hitting a moving target, under a life threatening stressful event so that they too can shoot as expertly as you do. Perhaps you've invented a magic bullet that always seeks out non-vital areas of the body by use of some sort of heat seeking technology. Again, you should present your gift to humanity so that the crooks of the world will be protected from their own stupidity of reaching for an area of the body known to conceal deadly weapons. Maybe you can convince the police officers of the world to sacrifice their own lives and simply leave their weapons at home or the station, because God knows that the life of a crook trying to evade arrest by killing his captor is infinitely more important than the lives of those police officers.
Here's a hint. When confronted by a police officer, put your hands int he air, not in your waste band, and all will be fine.
Wow. What an excuse to kill an unarmed person? First of all, I bet most of the officers are not trained in UOF policy. They may be trained to use a gun or how subdue a person but not how to properly execute UOF per policy guidelines. Second, most officers don't care if they follow policy or not. Lastly, another sorry excuse to use what an officer gets paid for as leverage to abuse authority.

Maybe that deputy should've reported to work that day or maybe he should've called an on duty officer to confirm the suspicion you moron!
