no, darling, no merger! Everything you asked would of been right. this is just not something I would of expected out of Teddy. the state trooper did what he had to do. I can accept that. I just HATE this for the person who was held hostage, the trooper who shot him, and his family.

Does anyone know what REALLY happened?
He made shots in the air and got a guy and put gun to his head they got him away from him. He came back with another gun and police showed up. Opened fire on police and they shot him....the truth....see if I'm wrong when media comes out. Promise

Im having a hard time believing all of this. Ted was a year younger than me and had everything going for him. Can't believe his death came to all this. Bless Barry and his father, Rodney!! Im so sorry this happened!!!

Yes, guns kill, but this guy needed more. My heart goes out to his children and family. Especially his wife, Dina! She is a sweetheart!

Obviously you have nothing better to do or you wouldn't be on here! SNAP!!
quess not just trying to think of the kids and that I would want to be the one to tell mine if it happened to me. And same goes to the news for not waiting either. Sometimes kids are at friends houses, or at other families and their mother's wait to know what is going on before they just sit down and say your dad died. But I wont make the mistake again of thinking people on here might care too.

Would the troopers family be hurting any less if he had killed him?
Would the guy with a gun to his head been hurting any less if he was dead?
Would the guys family in the wal mart parking incident be hurting if he had went under the car instead of over the hood?
Is there a single person in the entire world that doesn't know what happens when you shoot at a cop?
Jees people, stop trying to kill your neighbors.
To quote the immortal words of Sheriff Andy Griffith, "He just ought not to done it."

I don't believe his name was mentioned on here. And his kids are a little too young to even know about topix (I would hope)

It is a sad day when a KSP officer has to shoot a drunk multiple times... Had to be a better option!

Apparently you've never trued to deal with an out of control drunk. What was the cop supposed to do, talk to him? I mean no disrespect, but if he was drunk enough to pull the gun on a trooper, he wasn't gonna listen to reason.

Why not shoot in leg or shoulder.... Used a rifle... Was he not aiming???

Coldwater,

The KSP trooper IS going home to his family...YOU do NOT point a gun at anyone especially NOT a trained law enforcement officer after an altercation with a gun and shots fired.

The better option would have been for the suspect NOT to drink and get out of control...PLAIN & SIMPLE!
Wrong Again

Th better option is never call the cops for anything other than car wrecks and burglarly unless you want something like this to happen. My condolences to his family and friends.

Iíve known the guy all my life his erratic behavior started way back in the day when he purchased his little red Trans Am. The neat thing about the graves county jail system is you can look up past offenders and what they have been charged with. Teddy had a history!!!! I am quite sure this incident all stems from the lack of him being able to sustain his fashionalbe lifestyle in some form or fashion. And I know some of the no it all jackasses are going to say I donít know what Iím talking about. Whatever, went to school with him and know him well. I wonít make excuses for him but I will pray for his family.

No matter what happened Teddy was a good dude with a big heart! RIP Teddy. Praying for all the families involved in this horrific event.

Teddy was a good man whose life was altered by many things over the recent year. Prayers for the family. Rumors wont bring him back or make the hurt they feel go away. Good things happen to good people too.
