Great job to the Galion Police Officers' actions and reactions! I hope the officer that was shot makes a full recovery.

Somebody needs to shoot you in your ass! You are a typical fool who hides behind a computer spewing racist crap you wouldn't dare say to someones face. Racist hag.

Wow..... I totally didn't take Bodie's comment as being a racial slur!!! I must have missed that interpretation. Galion is a predominately white town.....fact of life. It tends to be that things in small, predominately white cities turn racial when something like this happens and the person the police kill is not white. There is not a racial bone in my body, but that is how I took the comment. Maybe I was wrong.....

The guy was white. He pulled a gun on officers. He shoots one of the officers in the hand. Officer shoots and kills him. Just like the idiot on I-70, HE DESERVED TO DIE!

Bodie in GC, to me, your statement appears to say how you believe that those three would respond, were the weapon carrying person a black instead of white. Nothing more - nothing less.

If I err, please enlighten me.

Sir or madam, I am unable to agree with you. I have read many of Bodie's posts, more on NBC-4 than here.

At times I agree with Bodie, at times not.

I have never believed that he needs to be shot in the **** or any where else.

I have not perceived Bodie as a fool or a racist, either here or on TV-4.

Consequently, you perhaps will understand my surprise at your comments, which I submit, are ad hominem, and distracting from the issue at hand.

The three entities have nothing to loose and everything to gain, were they to challenge the shooting.

Based on past experience, I feel that it is not unfair to suggest that perhaps Bodie is accurate in his prediction.

I feel that no matter what color the person was, if he would have the ****'s to shot at me. Then he was trying to harm or kill me. I would have done the same thing. Why is everything about race? Anyone of you would have done the same thing. Check your history, all races have committed a crime in one way or another.

To all of you who can't seem to grasp a racially motivated statement if IT shot you in YOUR asses ... my question to you is ... why even BRING UP RACE when the situation and the article had NOTHING to do with it???

There was no reason to bring up skin color, the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton. So regardless of it you know Bodie or not, or agree with his/her comments 9 out of 10 times ... the statements were unnecessary and had no reason to be brought into the comments.

If you can be that flip about something and turn it into a color issue ... you have proven yourself to be nothing but a racist.

The saddest part is that it all had to be explained.
