Yes it is my friend. You stated "I just feel that they could have executed things in a better way. Darnell lived and died by the sword and he'll be judged by his maker. My concern is for his children. His children could have been spared this level of tradegy. The loss of a parent in this way is bad enough, but having to witness this first-hand is awful. Executing a No Knock Warrant without assurance that there were no children inside the residence was senseless."<quoted text>
I'm not sure at what point I "defended" my friend. I was merely stating the facts, that he was a good guy in high school. Several years have passed since this time and it's clear that he wasn't the same person. I clearly stated that the police were justified in their actions. I wish more people were able to read with comprehension. Ignorance is bliss!!!!
Please enlighten us to your better way of getting drug dealers off the streets. I too regret that his family his was at home, when he, a convicted drug dealing felon with an illegal firearm, choose to open fire at a police officer. Yep. I probably think he too wishes he could retrace those steps but he made his choice and there is no happy ending. I am just sick to death of this being about the warrant. This is simple and clear. Your old high school friend chose to shoot it out and didn't want to go back to jail. Oh, and I don't think the people of the children he sold drugs to will have a lot of sympathy for the child in his own home. Drugs and so forth were lying about. What? You think his child didn't know? Reality sucks and I am far from ignorant.
