Yes, Tom's comments are ignorant, no question. But your comments are racist also. Not all police officers are that was, in the same respect not all black people are the same way, or white people or hispanics....let's be fair.

I suspect that Tom and Alex are one in the same. If not, it clearly illustrates the level of ignorance and lack of intelligence common in all racists.

Tom/Alex,
Please enlighten all of us. If blacks (I assume you mean all blacks) are not human, exactly then what classification to they fall in to? Then, let's see you back up that claim with something more than your bigoted beliefs and erroneous opinions.

Let the facts speak for themselves. Blacks make up 10% of the US population yet they over populate the prison system, welfare and unemployment.

That is not a racist comment, it is the truth. They have "Black College Funds" "Black Colleges" "Black TV" "Black Magazines" etc etc.

Yet they proclaim we are racist. What if we advertised "Send money to support your local caucasion student"...or wwe started our own magazine called Ivory or our own TV stattion WET...

The best yet, what if we formed our own version of the NAACP and called it NO FEAR (National Organization For European American Race)

We all know what NAACP stands for Negroes Against All Caucasion People

MY comments have not been racist, nor did I stereotype anyone. However, that person was not like ME in any way, whatsoever, for I would never do something as stupid as he did. And saying that he did something stupid is not racist; it is a FACT. Your comments simply prove there are racists of all colors, and you're one of them.

If he were my cousin, I'd feel ashamed for what the idiot had done. I would feel as if I needed to apologize to the police for his putting their lives in danger. I would feel sorry for the worry that he has caused those officers and their families. And I would feel great sorrow and loss that he had died because of his own criminal actions.

I pray, too, that the world will get better. But this world cannot be made better until criminals such as this one are no longer allowed to ruin it for the rest of us. If you truly cared about your "cousin", you should have helped him before he became the person he was. Now, perhaps you should stop trying to garner pity for the ones he left behind and, instead, start helping the rest of your "cousins" who might be headed in the same direction as this man who was killed because of his own stupid, criminal actions, a man who was killed because the police were and should have been concerned for their own safety as well as for the safety of other law-abiding citizens. Perhaps if your "cousin" had thought of someone other than himself, he'd still be alive.

I'm waiting to hear that the guy has some type of mental illness (paranoid schizophrenia) or possibly drug induced schizophrenia. Normal people react to being tazed and are not out in the middle of the night yelling in the middle of the street.

Do you ever watch the news? Earlier this week the autopsy report was in about s WHITE man whose cause of death was 7 bullet wounds from the police with the one to the chest being the fatal shot. So what is the difference there? He was a white man in predominatly white neighborhood drunk and waving a gun or a knife and would not follow police orders to drop it so the police shot and killed him. So please explain to me how this is racist.

And do not forget about the also white teenager who lived out near NorthWest High school, another predominatly white neighborhood, that was shot to death because he would not drop a knife.

The police don't look at your race when you are being foolish and could harm others, they are looking at the danger to themselves and to the rest of the public.

Personally speaking I hold my children, brothers, cousins and the like to a higher standard, and if they were to pull a stunt like this, then they would get what they deserve.

Where I'm from we call it accountability. I teach my children this everyday. They are accountable for their actions, for their decisions and for their punishment. You don't want to get punished? Don't break the rules.

sorry about your loss. but, he did not sound very peaceful, and respectful. don't you hate when people call the cops on a "peaceful, respectful" guy yelling and threatening people early in the morning. maybe he was on drugs.

the neighbor says he knocked the female officer out and continued his assault. you think they should have waited for him to finish killing somebody before making the decision to take him out. the taser did not work which answers the stupid question of why officers don't always tase in other situations that involve and armed subject. even more of a reason to kill him.

don't take it personal but he paid the price for his CRIME whether he was a "good guy" or not. according to someone they were always "nice guys".(and if you knew him then i guess you can't use the "he was mentally unstable argument either")

A typical remark from a black person. It could not have anything to do with the fact that this guy assaulted officers, etc. No, that could not have anything to do with it. Thats the thing with blacks, they always use the race card. Maybe accountability is the key!
