U know I'm not taking up for the guy or saying what he did was right. But all you people that post some dumb shit on here are low lifes. How do u know anything about him how do u know he wasn't trying to feed his kids and for the cop he should have had a taser but no I guess it's shoot first and ask questions later !!!! Society at it's best judge not be judged

Evol,it was my understanding that the guy pulled a gun and pointed it at the officer. Do you honestly feel like the officer should have said "Hold on a minute, mister...don't shoot! Let me get my taser!" Are you kidding? At the moment that I am staring down the barrel of someone's gun pointed at me, I could only imagine that I would not give two cents why he just robbed a bank. Most of the time when someone points a gun at an officer it's a form of suicide. Maybe he didn't want to go back to prison, or maybe he could see no way to feed his children as you say...whatever the reason, if it had been me he was pointing that gun at...badge or no badge, I would have fired my weapon.

Evol why dont you put yourself in an Officers shoes. A man who just ROBBED A BANK and then led you on a high speed chase putting thousands of innocent people at risk is now running towards you. I dont care if its a knife or a gun or what it is. He wasnt going to say hello and I surrender. Thats just common since. Would you be on here if the cop had been shot and killed? What about his family? It makes no since to me how people can think the way you do...If he would have robbed you would you care why he did it. Were all broke...most of us, but the difference is we go to work look for work or find a legal means to make money rather than risk the lives of so many. I say God Bless that Officer who stood up for all those innocent people and put his life on the line...and to answer your question (What is it shoot first ask questions later?) That answer is yes if a person who has already threatened the lives of so many is coming at you...you stop him before he kills someone else. He had every oppurtunity to surrender. Why do so many people not get it. You want a lawless society full of robbers, rapers, killers and thieves?

Birds of a feather, lay with dogs with fleas, you get fleas. Maybe not exactly the same, but my drift here is "No matter what your circumstances, don't put yourself in these places" Never in my lifetime have I seen so much food banks, church handouts, family help as we have today. No matter what has happened, if you have a family in need, you can find help. On the other hand, why would you want to endanger yourself to like this and then windup having a family with no father, no help and wondering why he is dead. It doesn't do anyone left behind any favors. We have all known someone in need, just a little or maybe a lot, but even if you honestly 'work a day' for some change, it is the better choice. I don't believe in 'giving' for the 'begging' per se, but I can find a little job here and there that helps me help them. In these days tho, I have trouble having that extra $ even for small jobs. But I don't plan on getting shot because of it.

It's sad to see how many people are so judgemental nowadays. I'm not saying that what he did was right and I'll be honest, I do know a little of this man. I know that he is not married, has no kids, and has been rejected from his own family for a very long time. On top of that, he has lost everything. Like everyone, he lost his home, job, and his life as he knows it. He's lucky enough to have met one of my relatives who was kind enough to open their hearts and home to him without asking him for anything in return. I know that he's been looking for a job for a long time now and yet has found nothing. I don't know what drove him to do what he did and its uncalled for, but NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO KILL ANOTHER PERSON. Sorry, but the officer could have shot him in the leg or somewhere else. There was no need to kill him! ALL HE HAD WAS A FREAKING KNIFE! What's sad is the first time I met him, he seemed normal, but something must have happen to have driven him this far.
