ITS SAD THAT THIS TYPE OF THING STILL GOES ON. I WAS RAISED IN EMPORIA AN TO HERE ABOUT THAT TYPE OF SHOOTING BY AN OFFICER OF THE LAW THERE BOTHERED ME. YOU HERE OF THINGS HAPPENING IN LA,NY,CHICAGO,DC ETC.... IN BIG CITIES BUT EMPORIA. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE TO THAT OFFICER. SUSPENSION IS NOT ENOUGH. OFF THE FORCE AN A THROUGH INVESTIGATION IS NEEDED. NOT LOCAL INVESTIGATIONS BUT A LITTLE MORE ADVANCED. IM NO LONGER A RESIDENT IN EMPORIA BUT I DO VISIT DURING HOLIDAYS AN SPECIAL OCCASIONS AN I SEE POLICE STILL HARASS AFRICAN AMERICANS. THEY STILL CANT PARK CARS AT NIGHT AT PLACES AS OF CAUCASIANS....... SAD..EMPORIA NEED TO ADVANCE ON HUMAN RACE ETHNICS INSTEAD OF RACIAL CONCURRENCY. DIDNT 9-11 TEACH US SOMETHING. COME ON HOME OF MINE LETS RISE UP NOT STAY BACK. WE HAVE GOOD HISTORY THERE AND WONDERFUL PEOPLE. AS MY INVESTIGATION OF THIS SITUATION I UNDERSTAND THAT THE OFFICER THAT SHOT THE YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILD DID NOT MAKE A GOOD NAME AT ANOTHER POLICE DEPT. BEFORE(FRANKLIN POLICE DEPT.) INVESTIGATORS LOOK INTO THIS PLEASE. BACKGROUND AN ALL. NOTE OFFICER WE DONT TOLERATE RACISM ON EPD. THANK YOU...............EDUCATED AFRICAN AMERICAN FROM EMPORIS VA.

you let someone point a knife and come towards you and tell me what you would do stop whining about the whole black issue and look at it as a person doing something wrong and paid the price

Emporia's finesest!
There is no Authority to correct those that have authority in Emporia! Who will stop them if they are allowed to continue without correction or consequence. This is not about black or white this is about justice. I find it very hard to believe a 14 year old can be that intimidating weilding a knife at a trained officer. There is so much more that needs investigating in Emporia this incident clearly reveals that something is very VERY wrong with the authority in Emporia!
