What is the deal with all these people in their 50's and 60's going off these days. Are they putting something in their medication, water or food? There has been several in the past weeks where older people have gone been going off. God help me I'm in my mid 50's, guess when you work 7 days a week you keep busy. Obviously these people have too much time on their hands.

There is more to this story than the news and the papers have put out there yes the cops were doing there job but they were notdoing it completely right they had no right to shoot with a minor standing there she was also hit. And they did not have to shoot to kill one shot wouldve been doing their job not 10-15 so try in get the full story before you start adding your opinionsbut everyone hastheir own opinion but take into consideration that the officers went a little to far by not following the training that they are supposed to go through they were definetly in the wrong for shooting while there was people in the house and that a 17 yr was right next to him.......

Melissa,
Are you ok? You have been in my thoughts and prayers. Please know that this has been deeply disturbing to me and I am concerned for you. I am so sorry that you lost your Dad. I wish that you had not had to go through this. I will continue to pray. I don't believe your Dad wanted any of this to happen to you. Thinking of you.

let me say they're are some real idiots in this world and everybody saying things about this man, you should be ashamed of yourselves.the real question is why are trained police officers shooting at a disabled man standing next to his young daughter, who called her daddy for help...that's what i'd like to know any other man would've done the same for his child, even the cops that killed him, well ex cops i hope.. so people if you are judging this man, may god have mercy on your soles, and i pray for the police that now have to deal with the fact that they shot and killed an innocent man in front of his daughter, i hope they realize the mistake they made and i pray for other people in that town if they are allowed to come back to work, and a public apology to his daughter who from what i understand was also struck by gunfire from the police would be nice and baby girl if you're reading this time heals everything and don't listen to any of these idiots... your dad didn't do anything wrong, i would've done the same thing for my children......RIP Michael Long, You are a true HERO!!!!!!

To all of those who knew Micheal long they new what a great person he was. There is so much that is missing from this story that people don't know , and before they run off at the mouth and judge ...they need to put there self in his shoes and this is to Kally and BS ...if it was your child that was in that situation u would have done the same to do whatever you had to to protect them ...that is what a good parent would do !Melissa , i love you and u should not listen to some of these morons , they have no right to judge ...and i hope that justice is shown for mike . mike you R.I.P . we miss you deeply ! and user BS ..that name definitely fits u !

Mike is my step father and I love him and miss him very much, and to set here and read what a few of you ignorant people wrote makes my blood boil, because you don't know what your talking about, you listen to the news and think you know everything, and You don't know nothing. Mike is not just another man on the news who got killed by POLICE he is a father, a husband, a grandfather, and most of all a great friend who has now been taken from us so viciously, he will never see my children, my sisters children, so please when you are bored find something else to do besides spend time talking about something else besides a person you know nothing about.

there is always more to the story then told in the paper you people act like everything that you read in the paper is always going to be true I'm sorry for the family and may he rest in peace also I would like to say that the police these days are using excessive force and something really needs to be done about it, remember that could have been anyone of us or our children.
Love

Just came across this while reading about the 80 yr old lady MURDERED by the police in the same town and I may be late on this but I can't believe this nor the other incident were justified and I hope for the other residents that someone has taken away the police officers weapons in that town!!! You think they're doing their job but all they have done is ruin the lives of two families so sad and I am sorry for ur loss Melissa and Robin.
