How many times should he have shot him then? If not 6 then would 4 be to few???
How many times is the correct number for a man who quite obviously wanted to die?
Has anyone thought maybe this was a suicide?
Frankly, I like Polk County Sheriff's explanation for why Angilo Freeland was shot 68 times out of 110 shots fired. "Because they ran out of bullets!"

You did not just seriously just say that. And now to assume that this person wanted to die. Come on.
Now the people really need to know just what happened here.
I am so shocked by this. If you are a cop, then you should get some help. YOu sound like the only reason a cop is a cop is to gun down people. I am getting more and more scared of the police. And I never do anything wrong. I might just get shot if I get a flat tire.

You should be. There are many who should not be wearing the gun and badge. But there are also many who have the common sense and desire to do the job for the right reason. Its a toss of the dice which you get in the encounter. Yes the people need to know what happened in this case ASAP so the rumors and speculation gets squashed and the truth be known. If this car had video it needs to be released ASAP so the people can see and hear the reality of it. Then the issues can be put to rest one way or the other. We do not need to become scared of the law enforcement here because of non disclosure. So I hope FDLE get on this and finalizes a report ASAP.

suicide by cop...video didnt lie. stop blaming the officer for protecting his life and going home to his family. i guess if this guy had wrecked into someone here posting and hurt/killed a love one who would be to blame then?

possibly a law enforcement officer that wasnt there to stop this because he could see into the future to stop this guy days or hours before this gappened...wow really?..this guy made a decision and put himself in this situation....grand jury ruled..video was shown...sun came u this morning.
