Too bad this case never made it to court, it might have gone something like this---

"Yer honah, my husband didn't do nuttin difrent from how he normally greets the kinfolk when they come ta visit. He always goes out and waves a gun at them first to let thems knows they be welcomes. Same this time ceptin he happened to let his trigger finger slip and, well, you knows, these thangs happens. Now how was he supposed to know that the cops wuz going to take him serious? He didn't know and they done shot him for no good reason at tall. After all, he only hit one of them! Clearly my husband is a victim heah and I am going to tell that fat pasty looking TV guy with the narrow tie that THIS DIDN'T HAVE TO HAPPEN.

And that's the God's honest truth--so help me and the snakes that we handle in our church.

Set the record straight!!!! I've known the wife of Mr.Farley all my life.Oh how many people in her family has tried to help her.She chose this kind of life. She was never raised like this and got up with wrong people. From sleeping in cars to a camper with these precious children she would not get away from this life style she was living.I ask,what is wrong with our system? The mother just got her children back from a wonderful family who was taking great care of them and now this.Why did the court system give them back?
I feel the law enforcement did the right thing because who is to say he would have gotten the entire family. "Don't forget what happened in Appomattox".This isn't the first they have had the law on them.People must know the whole story.I hope this helps. Oh,by the way,a special "Thank you" to her uncle who help them from starving at times and tried so hard to help her.May God Bless you.Praying for this family to seek Gods will.
I am not surprised that this genetic throwback had his family sleeping in a camper! The time has come for Buckingham County social services to "SPEAK OUT" about this tragic loss that will be felt by all of us.
For the person who mentioned the four million dollar award given out by a central Virginia jury-----That means less than nothing to those of us that know how inbred certain families tend to be around here, so much so that you can never totally discount the possibility of a conspiracy to split the take after the media loses interest and wanders off.

You know, now that he is out of the way, give me a fifth of Jack, a whack on the head, and two head-sized paper bags, and I'd tap that.

There's tarded adults too ya know! Some wear a badge and gun.
Here's another interesting thought for ya. So, a police radio was struck by a bullet. What radio? The one in the car or the one on the cops belt? The strike may have been by friendly fire. If it was by friendly fire, do you expect the cops to tell the truth about it? Where is the bullet? Has anybody done ballistics to see whose gun the bullet came from?
These discussions tickle me to death! Most of you people who claim the deputies did what they needed to do are most likely honest decent tax paying citizens. The same honest decent tax paying citizens who pay the $4 million awards in wrongful police shootings.
Friendly fire? Seriously? Yeah the other cop just happened to be aiming at his partner in case his partner turned deadly.

I hope the kids saw their father shot down. What a wonderful lesson in what not to do! How thoughtful of him to make sure he was no longer around to be a bad influence!
While this man was obviously not the best choice of role models, the children didn't have the option of making that choice. These children have had nothing but obstacles to face since the day they were born. Now they have to live with the reality that their father was not the man they hoped he would be.
I wish there were a way to erase these memories from their innocent minds. They are going to have many more difficult times with the foundation of their lives built this way.

He HAD A GUN AND SHOT AT POLICE!! Is that not lethal force? Is it ok for the Deputies to have died instead of someone causing harm to others? What kind of world do you live in?
Hope and Change wrote:
Interesting. If he was such a danger with a handgun in his hand, how did they get close enough to use a taser? And if the taser did indeed cause him to involuntarily pull the trigger, does anybody really expect a ruling of wrongdoing on behalf of the deputies by the Virginia State Police? If so, think again. Just think Thin Blue Line -- lie, deny and coverup.

Please show me the statistics on where the TAZER causes death?? PLEASE??? I beg you. You can't because it is NOT THERE. Don't speak on a subject when you are ignorant to the matter. Point is the man HAD A GUN AND SHOT AT POLICE. There is no helping at that point. It is the responsibility of the law enforcement to protect its citizens AND themselves.

Since the introduction of tasers in law enforcement, there have been, and will continue to be, terrible events like this one was. A taser makes you lose voluntary control over muscle contractions. It doesn't take a neurologist to tell you that some involuntary contractions (including those of a trigger finger) are going to happen when you run a few thousand volts through someone's body when they are holding a gun. Yes, it was not a smart move to have a gun in his hand when police showed up, but is it not also the law enforcement officers' responsibility to do everything they can to prevent loss of life? It is sad when events such as this happen, and overly authoritarian use of a device that can cause you to contract muscles completely involuntarily, is not used more carefully. Numerous cases exist where officers used a taser on suspects that subsequently fell on their faces, resulting in serious head injuries or worse. When fired into nerve tissue, they can cause lasting damage and severe chronic pain. Worse yet, tasers have caused people to suffer heart arrhythmias and die. "Less than lethal force", well at least most of the time. Obviously it was not less than lethal for Mr. Farley. My heart goes out to not only his family, but also the officers who will have to have his death on their consciences.

The man refused to drop his(loaded) weapon. I support the deputies 100%.
