people around here are saying there is a video of a Roan co deputy executing Luke Baber with a shot directly to the chest from three feet away after he was already down and no longer a threat.
suposedly some kids out in the woods goofing off got it all on cell phone video and now are terified to let the info go for fear of disappearing themselves along with the video.
no matter how horrible a crime this young man commited it does not give the police the right to become judge,jury and executioners,if in fact this is what happened.
I REALLY hope this is not true but think back to how many of the mug shots on the jail report show arestees with faces beaten to a pulp and also how every suspect who has killed a WV police officer in the last thirty years ends up hanging themselves in their jail cells.
but..the WV police would not do such a thing? would they?

Think about things before you post.
I really wish that people would let Marshall and Eric Rest in peace.

what country are you a "citizen of? Uganda?,Cuba?,North korea?,Syria?
how dare you say you think it is right for the police to "finish off" a SUSPECT just because they want revenge for the killing of one of thier own.
Im not even saying it happened that way but to voice those kinds of opinions is just wrong.

If someone can prove these accusations then the officer will be punished. Good luck with that. Like I said as far as I am concerned if he was breathing he was a threat. He twitched and the officer fearing for his life shot him. I have no doubt this is a ridiculous rumor started by some idiot.

Mr Barber murdered two people in cold blood, peroid. Im sure he wouldve killed as many as he couldve if he wasnt stopped. SO, when exactley IS it ok to end a persons life, how many people Must die before YOU think the quota is filled to take his life? PLEASE youd feel TOTALLY different if it were ur family, friend or somone YOU knew personally~

He deserved a much more painful death than what he was delt. GO HUG A TREE. If it were ur family, friend or just someone u knew personally who was killed or injured, things would be different~

think about this.. just take a minute and think. because obviously you didn't think before you posted. A field, a gunman on the loose, who has already killed 2, and shot one other. several officers in the field, getting shot at by this gunman, while they are shooting at him.. do you really think that any roane county or any other county or state would have a moment to video tape this? And if there were kids in that field, with all of that gunfire going off, not knowing if they could get shot themselves, just for being in that field, do you honestly thinnk they would be able to sit t here and video this?

I think the s.o.b got what he deserved. He killed two people for what because he was on drugs just because ur on drugs dont give u the right to kill people and if it were my family thats what I would have wanted them to do
curious

Okay,really? Even if they did shoot him while he was down, it's not like they were filming a youtube video for fun, it wasn't "hey, hold my badge and watch this sh**". I agree that he was still a threat if he was still breathing and if other murder crimes were handled like this we wouldn't have to spend any tax dollars primping them in prison. The justice system has gone way too easy and that is why the drug problem is this out of control. I'm all about being treated fairly and all that jazz, but if we dealt with rapists,murderers, and molesters the way we should, we wouldn't have to worry so much about our kids going out to play. Besides, I'm not too proud to say that if he killed a friend or family member of mine, I would have put him down myself. They killed one to protect many.

Wait just a minute! You can't say he murdered two people without also noting the fact that he shot the tow truck driver and the Roane County Deputy. Which shows us that had those shots also been fatal, there would be four dead. So, it is clear Baber was willing to kill anybody that stood in his way of running away, making his death the only solution to this problem.

I say string up all the malcontents,1/4 of the judges,1/2 of the cops and 3/4 of all lawyers and let the Lord sort'em out. Might sound a little harsh, but it's the truth.
