Ok, so here is the deal. YOU DON”T COME TO FEDERAL WAY AND START TROUBLE. The cops do not mess around. They will not tolerate any ghetto behavior. The police have the support of the community along with various organizations that support our police. We love our Federal Way cops. They are the best in the county and probably the state. So, with that being said you have been WARNED. Go ahead and take your chances, but you most likely be your last time. WE LOVE OUE COPS. Keep up the great work.

Wrong. Federal Way cops are thugs and criminals and we are tired of them sneaking around in our houses without warrants and watching us have sex in the privacy of our houses. They are the worst in the country and they have no respect for the citizens of Federal Way that they took an oath to protect, no respect for the law or the constitution. Federal Way cops refer to themselves as trash collectors and the citizens as trash. "If you are not one of us, you are one of them." A 23 year old murdered over a stupid car. Law enforcement in Federal Way is out of control. They get no respect and no faith just like the lying court system.

Sorry. Real Americans don't turn tail and run when truth and justice is replaced with threats and fear. The residents of Federal Way are good people that deserve far better.

A 23 year old was killed trying to steal a stupid car that someone else worked their ass off for. I feel sorry for the family but the guy was in the wrong business.

Fed W...the thief thought otherwise. He knew going in that he couldnt work his tail off in an honest line of work so he decided to steal something. Sorry, sometimes thieves get shot and he knew that.

No car is worth someones life. However, I have to argue that the thief had no idea who he was stealing from. Here's the problem, the thief is a dirt bag and probably had other more violent crimes in his past. It was only a matter of time that someone shot him.

It doesn't matter who he was stealing from the car from. I would wager the cop who shot him is a dirt bag that found himself with the opportunity to shoot someone without anyone around to question his story. Law enforcement in Federal Way are the most vile humans that walk the planet, half of which are recieving one paycheck from Federal Way and another paycheck from the Feds.

You are right it doesn't matter who the dirt bag was stealing the car from. The thief knew the risks and took it. Here's the solution...don't want to be shot then get a honest job.

I'm not sure how to reply to that. I believe you cannot be suggesting its ok to shoot someone because of their employment status? I however am suggesting Federal Way is having the problems it is because of the same ills our country is going through. The law enforcement and courts in Federal Way are running amok and are a lawless group of thugs. They dress in black uniforms to instill fear in the population while they put more cameras and surviellance equipment up than walla walla has. And this shooting has more to do with a cop shooting someone because he knows he will get away with it than fearing for his life. Federal Way needs to take its streets back from these thugs.

The shooting was a tragedy. However, the thief decided to be a scum bag and take something that wasn't his. I can't comment about the police but it's hard to feel sympathy for an individual who is a thief.

If there is anything that truly yanks my chain it is a thief, however I have nothing worth a persons life. I would never want someone shot for a car. I can replace a car, but I can't replace a life

Yes, a life is more important then a material possessions. So with that being said DO NOT put yourself in a position where you may lose your life over an object. Get it see how that works. If you steal you may lose your life; can’t make it any simpler than that.
That is all.
