Addiction is indeed a horrible affliction. The problems that an addict encounters are many, including a lack of assistance from NC's treatment agencies. The police are trained to shoot and ask questions later. The victim could have been cuffed on the ground; he was surrounded by more than one officer. He could also have been tazered, if the officer had one. The Stalling NC police department ruled against using tazers because the police could have been held liable for any injury to the suspect. So…..it is easier to kill the suspect so no questions or “problems” exist after the incident. Also do not think the SBI is there to ensure that procedures are followed and the police acted in accordance with required policy and procedures. They are there to protect the State and the police department. The family of the deceased will never see the SBI report. This report will not be released to the public. The District Attorney is under no obligation to answer any questions and the police will issue their report that states the victim is dead from a “homicide”. This is a neat and tidy way to clear up any problems that may exist for the actions of the police. The family will not be able to file a lawsuit to find out what happened because that procedure is for the rich, who can get a lawyer from out of the area to plead their case. There are “rogue” cops and there are good cops, sometimes it is hard to tell them apart. The only thing I know for certain is that the surround and killing of citizens must stop. If the police are trained to kill like this STOP IT NOW. There are many other options to handle these situations. I grieve for the family of the deceased, I know their sorrow..My daughter was shot dead by the police on June 8, 2010. under almost the same circumstances. When the police killed the suspect they killed the whole family, not just the deceased. My prayers are with you. And to all of you who don’t like my comments, please hold them until THIS HAPPENS TO YOU.
