My heart goes out to the Kennedy family .I believe the police in this matter overeacted.There are to many witnesses telling the same story and it just dont add up ..You know its really sad that a jury would belive cops over anyone and it just aint right ....Cops does not equal truth

Overacted??? Have you seen his record,it's a mile long! And witnesses? If you call a bunch of drug dealers and drug users witnesses then that's what's sad.I know both the officers involved and neither would've shot him for no reason.The man tried to grab one of the officers gun, what did you expect them to do? And now the NAACP wants answers, that's what's bull crap!!National Association for the Advancement of Colored People,that's ridicouls?I know it sucks, but it is what it is.

What makes a credible witness....fact the witness featured on WBTV works for a living, no criminal record whatsoever, college graduate, married father, buying his home.... What you did't know that not all black men in that area are drug dealers...some are upstanding citizens....
No one deserves to die in that fashion one shot to the back of the body no exit wound come on if it was a white man/black cops you'd up in arms...
Just like the KKK

Yeah, you really can compare the NAACP to other hate groups with all that NON VIOLENCE and EQUALITY shit they kill people with.

Yea that's what I mean. Who fights for the white people? Nobody, or else we'd be acussed of discrimination or being rasist.When in fact the NAACP is nothing but rasist!!

I knew the him very personally he was my best friend and the other half of my heart he did not deserve to die. He may have had a bad record but he was a good person he did eveything he could for everyone he could and he will be missed and he would have never went for a gun because he hates guns
Are you serious

He hated guns? What was his violent weapon of choice then when he was robbing people, the good old finger in the pocket gun trick. Give me a break. This guy got what he deserved. POINT BLANK

Well it's about time that these officers get to go back to work.Internal investigation says they did not violate policy.
