According to the dead guy's girlfriend who says she was there in the motel room when it happened and has been posting on Facebook about it, the guy was unarmed and the cops had no reason at all to shoot him.
It certainly wouldn't be the first time that BPD cops have been trigger happy.

^it's being 'investigated' by the State police and the Attorney Gen's office, which no doubt means that they'll find the cop 'justified' in blowing the guy away just as they did with the BPD shooting* of Robert 'Woody' Woodward after the Many witnesses in that church sanctuary said they definitely were Not justified in shooting him.

who has evidence that he was a drug dealer? Not ewe- so STFU! They've only said that he was a theif/scammer.
If the piggies had found a gun or any drugs in his possession they sure as hell would have said so.

Yea, there are talk about a cartel figure and hiding a car filled with lots money. A heroin deal...

The girlfriend in the room said her boyfriend didn’t have a gun on him and didn’t act threating once they kicked in the door.

Well, he slammed the door in the cops face as they tried to enter...told the cops he ain’t opening up the door.

Like I alway said, all you got to do is obey the cops. It is the easy way!

That is normal behavior for a felon amongst other terms. Can you knock on any door at that " doptel " and make a buy of one thing or other.

In the court of public opinion this POS is guilty until proven otherwise.

the court of public opinion (based on the testimonies of witnesses actually there in the church) said that BPD piggies Parker & Holbrook were way too trigger happy on 12/2/2001, that they had no good reason to blow away shoot Woodward as they did
and the court of public opinion is growing in agreement that some substances/'drugs' should no longer be illegal
and the court of public opinion about VY said it was time for that potential Dirty Bomb to be SHUT DOWN

still think we should always go with the C of PO?

What does 2001 have to do with the miscreant that got what he deserved.

Might be wise to keep VY running for a few more years.

I found the Brattleboro highly trained on interacting the mentally ill and the bad guys in recent times...they are pretty benign if you have no history.

I would more worry about police office getting shot because he didn’t act fast enough....

I was on the Brattleboro side of the bridge. I was pretending to be god’s car attendant angel...directing the people to a parking spot so they can walk through the pearly gates. I had a big sign and arrow saying this way to heaven taped to the bridge. Well, you enter Hinsdale, you are enteringn Heaven. I had halo on and I was pretending directing traffic across the bridge. Basically, I was hinting the bridge is getting ready to collapse and I was directing the dummies to cross the not safe bridge and to their deaths.

We had a lot of fun with it, some were pretty mad at me, but the people who got it thought I was really funny. I really had a lot of fun doing this.

So I am directing the dummies towards heaven...I see one Brattleboro police car with light flashing turning the corner and coming toward me. Then another police car, then another police car, and then a detective police care. A few of the cars had more than one cop in a cars. I saying to myself this is going to be big whatever it is.

The first car entered depot road, then all the rest. I watch them all go fifty feet down road and they all pulled a you-ee in perfect military fashion. All four cars stopped right in front of me.

The cops told me I couldn’t direct cars anymore...I told them I was pretending to direct traffic, not actually directing traffic. The cops said if I do it one more time they were going to arrest me. With a big smile on my face I said, who is going to dare follow a crazy man at the foot of the bridge with a handmade halo on his head. Directing traffic I doubt it.

All and all I thought they treated me pretty decent...there was no screaming and hollering to get down on the ground and put your hands behinds behind your head. They just first asked, just one policeman...he asked me to explain what I was doing. He talked to me nicely!

I told the cop with another big smile, you won’t believe how much fun it is directing traffic. I got a huge grin and smile out of him. I think he like directing traffic also.

that's it mikey, admitting ewe have a mental problem is step one. It comes down to that- either get the ECT treatments or else in the next stunt ewe pull ewe might get what Woodward got
