This explains ALOT!!

It's a good shoot. The man slashed his wrists, stabbed his wife AND disconnected a gas line and set fires inside the house. In addition, he made statements about wanting to commit suicide and charged the officer. He wanted to die, suicide by Cop and they abliged him.....end of story!! Another victim of a controlling husband who got her life back. Good job Deputy Brown!!

What's a shotting? Is that something new you came up with.
You don't have a clue as to what it's like to be a police officer. Always having to deal with jerks like you and hank.

Don't the police have non-lethal instruments they can use, instead of a rifle.
WHY on earth would they use NON-Lethal force against a guy who used LETHAL FORCE on his ex? And may attempt LETHAL FORCE against them? He set the house one fire in many spots, after disconnecting a gas line, slit his wrists AND charged the officer. To use NON-LETHAL FORCE......That doesn't make much sense now does it? He was a threat to society and the officers. WHY would we want him to continue living? So he could continue to be a threat to his ex? Or so he could continue to be a threat to society? He slit his wrists and locked himself in a burning building, he obviously didn't want to live. Sheeesh!!

Then just exactly why did you even open your yap? Was this just so you could bash the cops because they busted you once for something you shouldn't have been doing in the first place? If so, NO ONE cares to hear about your sorry life! Go back to the factory where you belong.

Hank, Hank, Hank....this WASN'T a raid! Good grief, the jerk had just knifed his ex, and was setting fire to the home.

Believe me, IMO, this guy's better off dead.

These regular people, put on a uniform, strap on a gun, and a vest, and go out into society and promise everyone in their jurisdiction that they will do everything in their power to protect them. INCLUDE DIE FOR THEM. Do you even have any idea what it is like to put on a uniform, pin on a badge, and a gun.. look at yourself in the mirror, and say, "Tonight, if needed, I will die for a stranger." These people put STRANGERS they have never met, before themselves, their families, their own CHILDREN. So, shut up. Just shut up. No one needs you, but we do need them. That night, these officers, looked at their partners, pulled out their guns, and went into a burning house to save a girl. They all knew they might not make it out, but that girl would. When you know fear like that, when you know that this is the night your family might get that knock at the door from the Chief saying you died doing your best, then you may comment. Until then,“thank you” will work just fine. By the way, if you ever need to be saved, they will be there, no matter what you think of them.

Actually... moron... more cops have been cleared because of video tapes than caught doing something wrong. There are numerous people that go into the police dept, make up some story and then get arrested for filing false reports when the video shows the EXACT OPPOSITE.

Video Tapes are more of a help to police than a hinderance.
