Police pumped at least six bullets into a Schuylkill County man described as a ''gentle giant,'' authorities say, but they have not yet said whether the shooting was justified.

Absolutely no problem with the outcome. The cops are alive and well.
The so-called "gentle giant" described in the article is not the same guy police confronted. Hopefully this won't get dragged out in the courts because the deceased was both WRONG and a threat to the police/public.
He's dead.... because HE made a very poor CHOICE: Drinking alcohol when he knew better.
No, the cops did not shoot too many times.
Case closed.

Yes, I agree. Anyone who drinks alcohol should be shot. It's always a poor choice and we should go back to Prohibition. Alcohol = sin in the Lord's eyes. God should punish all who drink it, sell it, or promote it.

I didn't say that you said a god damn thing.

I actually thought you were being sarcastic but you're serious.
"Prohibition"???? "Sin in the Lord's eyes"? "Shot"!
Let us be sensible. Please.
You can read about the severe (for lack of a better word) allergic reaction a sector of the population will have when consuming alcohol--even a little bit of it. A normally calm and reserved man has the potential of turning into monster, which is exactly what someone in one of the articles described.
What's the matter with someone having a drink once in a while to unwind? Or a guy who, "responsibly," walks to the corner pub, gets a little sloshed? If he's not violent or bothering anyone, it's his personal business, between him and God. Right?
Are my views absurd?
