I just read a comment by a person on the sunherald web page. He stated the police could have shot him in the legs or hands....give me a break. I am sure if the idiot weilding the machette was coming after you or maybe your kids you would want them to shoot to kill. It goes back to the old adage, "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight"!

That just shows the level of stupidity that exists in our society. The people that post that kind of crap do so safely from their office or living room. I bet that they never walked the line and dealt with dangerous situations. The suspect was extremely mentally ill. The police did their job according to the law and their procedures. ITS OVER. Now the officers and the family of the suspect have some things to live with that they would rather not. I believe that we should give the officers and the family of the suspect, which might I add is a very good family despite this one mans actions, the due respect that we would like to receive. Petty bickering will only inflame an already tragic situation.

And to all out there that would have officers shoot people in the legs or hands or any other movie crap that you would come up with; how about you volunteer your time in your local police reserves and see if that magic bullet crap works for you. But before you do, make sure you leave funeral instructions for yourself with your loved ones..........

i'm beggining to see a pattern here with the pascagoula police dept.... if i recall the last time they killed somebody it was an old mentally ill man that they could've easily subdued with a taser. I guarantee you jason is probably on the force beings he's talking all dramatic trying to make this all seem justified. Common sense should tell you or anyone else that the cops couldve used their tasers on this old mentally ill man that only had a sword!!! Crooked a** cops man i tell ya.. what ever happened to the guy that was raping women who were jailed at the city jail there also? I notice that was kept very hush hush... yet it would be on the front page for days if an officer wasnt involved!!! and we dont even want to start talking about how crooked all the half brained ADC jailers are, that would be an extremely long story!!! and throw in the mosss point police dept. with all te SO CALLED suicides!!! what a joke our entire Jackson Co. law enforcement is, a crying shame!!!

Get serious! You can't blame civilians or law enforcement for defending themselves. It is such a tragedy what happened with this man.When we all heard about him losing his father and his emotional state..hell we all felt bad.Maybe it was suicide by cop? I don't think the police did anything inappropiate in this case. He had already been involved in a hit and run..then rammed the motorcycle cop.HE HAD TO BE STOPPED! The sword wasn't the only weapon he had, the damn car was being used as a weapon also.I know there are bad cops here, but there are far more good ones.

I would'nt be so sure about that gpe.... even the good ones all work together to cover up for the bad ones when something involving one of their own goes down... judges, cops, attorneys, they all work together and are all crooked in one way or another.. i've heard from a very well known ex jackson co. DA that he pays cops a small portion of his clients fees and gets the cop to not show for court or tear the ticket up all together. If you have the right amount of money you can get out of anything!!! And just think about this next time you think there are some good ones out there... How many times do you think an officers relatives ever recieve any type of traffic tickets or gets arrested for anything??? NEVER!!! and why? simply because they are related to someone on the force and everyone knows everyone and their family in the law bussiness because they all hang out with each other cause everybody else HATES them. While me and you have to pay out the a** when we get a ticket or else we'd be in jail. One of the main things we can do is get rid of our crooked sherriff next election and get some new blood in there, someone not so wrapped up in the good ole boy standards.Just spend one night at the nasty spider and roach infested, diseased up, hell hole called the Jackson Co. ADC and let Mr. ex wanna be boxer turned wanna be deputy Tyrone practice on you for a punching bag for the fun of it, and watch a man get beat half to death by another inmate after he told the officers not to put them in the same cell because the guy wanted to kill him...(the guy kicked him so hard in the stomache and side that he actually sh*t all over the floor which was most inmates bed thanks to the overcrowding situation) dont get me wrong i'm not a convict or a felon...just had to stay a night there for public drunk.. the worst night of my life...still having nightmares, but you would definitely be changing your way of thinking if you knew what i knew and had saw what i've saw.

And this shooting had something to do with all that bullshit you just posted? Right.... All you are is a sad disgruntled person with a twisted opinion because you have been on the wrong side of the law. The really sad part is that no matter how much common sense that you are surrounded by, that loser attitude you have wont change. Have fun going through life looking over your shoulder. Im sure you will be back to the ADC with that winning attitude.....
