judging by the video the cops discharged 10-13 rounds and only hit him 3 or 4 times. i know if i was highly trained i SHOULD be able to hit a person less than 10feet away from me a couple more times than that. poor harry probably didnt even know what he was doin he was so drunk. he wouldnt wanna hurt anybody if he knew what he was doin at the time, or get himself shot by the cops!

BAM!!!!!

Fact is your not "highly trained". 12 gauge would have sloved that problem. 1 shot, 1 kill.

you dont know what youre talkin about c bennett. the garden city plice are corrupt and have a itchy trigger finger! harry did not attack them when they entered the house you can see the video and tell that. he was passed out after a totally horrible day which he had been drinking all the way through. he was totally disoriented and when swat busted his door down he didnt know what was goin on so he picked up his side arm and was ready. and there is noo need to shoot and kill him "1 shot 1 kill" HE NEEDS HELP! he collected all these weapon and probably only shot a couple of them HE WAS A COLLECTOR OF GUNS! i hope harry gets bettar soon so he can fight this he will have lots of help. we need more people like him

John,

The Garden City Police are corrupt? They didn't shoot the guy. A SWAT team from a neighboring jurisdiction did. You have to realize John that if you or anyone picks up a gun in an aggressive manner toward police, you are going to be shot. They can't wait and determine if you are sober or if you have had a "Bad day". I'm sure he needed help but he turned to violence in his time of need.

Maybe he was a collector of guns. I have several myself and am not against the collection of guns. However, when one turns to alcohol and becomes violent, maybe a collection of baseball cards would have been better suited for him.
