I bet he won't do that again.....just sayin'. There is a lesson to be learned here....Comply with the SWAT officers commands....

And he was wanted in another shooting ? Nice. That saved the taxpayers a boatload of money.

i think they could have tried to find a different solution rather than take the kids life from him.

What don't these scumbag perps and the folks who defend them understand; that if you point a loaded/unloaded/plastic/real gun at a police officer, you MAY be BLOWN AWAY. Some dumba$$ states: "I think they could have tried to find a different solution....". Police KNEW the perp and his dangerous record, and are supposed to try something else, when a gun is pointed at them. What if the police DID NOT shoot and the perp would have killed an officer. Some of you would be praising the perps actions. I praise the police action. Hell, you are worse than the perp.
Take names and kick a$$...he won't be doing this again; and thanks for saving the taxpayers money.

Hopefully he doesn't have any baby mamas running around.

Some critters shouldn't be allowed to breed.

Thanks, SWAT, for cleaning up the gene pool.

Some people are extremely ignorant!! How in the world can you judge this young man? How many of you know what really happened?? I can firmly say NONE OF YOU!! Just because the media writes something, that doesn't mean there is any validity in it. Do you actually know if he was involved in a prior shooting?? Do you know if he actually had a gun?? Why was the SWAT sent to issue the warrant?? You are speaking from a pool of ignorance. You are so simple that you believe everything that is written. Why won't you think for yourself instead of allowing the media to control your thoughts and opinions. You didn't take into account that there may be some untruths and a cover-up on the SWATS part. They won't even say how many times the young man was shot!!! How have they explained this to his family?? Research before you speak. That will help hide your ignorance.

Special~ condolences for your loss, but please dont allow your association with this young man to cloud your common sense.

Police dont lie for the most part. Yes, there are a few exceptions to that, but for the most part, they are the good guys.

They did society a favor when they made that horrible decision to end this mans life. He made the choice to point a weapon, he made the choice not to comply with orders, so basically he forced their hand to shoot, and end his life. I would bet not one officer involved in that is happy about their action, except that they and their felow officers are alive and the threat to them is not.

take out the part where you are associated with him and put another person in his place and your now patting these same officers on the back for protecting your community. Just think clearly and say a prayer for him, he needed it long before now.

yall messed up, corey was my friend and yeah he did some questionable things, but i dont see him refusing to put his gun down when he is surrounded by swat. i think they got to his place and just booted the door in and caught him by surprise and his first reaction would be to pick up his gun and see who busted in, and before he even had a chance to give up they blasted him, cuz like i said i dont see him refusin to put down a pistol, when the swat carries assult rifels, he wasnt dumb.
