Who are you to say how many times he was shot? Were you there? Do you know the facts? So unless you do, you should keep quiet. Brad was a great friend of mine and did not deserve to die. Nor did anyone else that was involved with the Bucky case. So show some sympathy. An innocent man lost his life because somebody wanted to be a "hero." They shot the wrong person and now, well let's just say their trying to cover their ass.(TROOPERS) I WAS THERE THAT NIGHT. I know what happend...you on the other hand, do not! So get your facts straight.

Sorry to inform you, but Freedon of Speech. Ever heard of it? We have lost two loved ones from the NYSP the past few months due to people like this, who have NO respect for law enforcement. One was MURDERED and the other one lost his life because some little punk would not STOP for him. These men and women are here to protect US from people like these idiots who think they are above the law and think that they can outrun the police. I will continue to make what ever comments I feel necessary. Thank you!
Oh this all seems like a very long time ago. While looking back over this time in wonderful Chautauqua County and as a resident living in the middle of the mess....I just have to comment. 1. Dear wife of officer--you missed the first lesson in being an officer's spouse. Keep thy mouth shut waiting the final outcome of any investigation. You could have leaked anything your husband may have said to you in confidentiality thus jeopardizing the investigation and his job. 2. Oh I remember the Officers that came storming in through the area all to well. I had them in droves come through my home and yard in the middle of the night like storm troopers. They had infra-red from a chopper hovering over my home flood lights all over and ordering us out of our home in night clothes. Ever get hauled out of bed in the middle of the night with guns aimed at you? And for what! Because my other half was spotted coming home from work in Dunkirk and the passenger may have been Bucky..........omg the passenger was my just turned 18 yr. old son who was working the same place, same shift with his step father. That stinking night has scarred me for life. I had my auto torn apart, the camper turned upside down and my home ransacked that night. I can't even get through a traffic check even now without being reduced to near hysteria. Just so you know yes there were some officer's out there on a good ole power trip thank you.

...the kid on the ATV died, because he thought it would be fun to get drunk (and or high) and go tweak the noses of law enforcement, who were involved in a massive dragnet for an armed & dangerous murderer...it would be no different if he took a real looking 'toy gun' and pointed it at officers, thinking it would be 'funny'...and after being dragged for over a mile, it was a clear case of self defense...if all persons involved had a chance to rethink the situation, it probably wouldn't have happened, very sad incident

The death of Brad Horton was avoidable on many levels. I have to question the judgement/reasoning of a young man who chose to ride an ATV (which was supposedly Phillips mode of transport at the time) at night (which was supposedly when Phillips was moving under the cover of darkness) through the area where Phillips was believed to be. Brad Horton HAD to be aware of all of that, given the SP presence as has been complained about / documented by the area residents.... then, to flee from the police when contacted? Is it a real surprise how this ended up? Completely avoidable.

why doesnt everyone get ovr it & move on. Bucky phillips suffers everyday of his life. U should all be happy for that. No one deserved to die during that time. The police were literally crazy they terroized innocent people. People that had the same last name and absolutely no connection the sp terroized before they found out the information. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the innocent families that still suffer their loss. Especially the kids. But the bottom line is the police will never admit to any wrong doing or going over bored when this hunt started before anybody lost their life..
