then obviously these officers were not taught that rule. the article says the guy moved toward them not ran away so all of the shots should have been in his direction not spread around. if an officer doesnt have the mental capability to make a split second decision about where to shoot and where not to then they should be on desk duty not out in public
jpz... you are just dumb

No one has a clue what my cousin was dealing with at the time of the incident. I am not condoning what he did, all I am saying is people should not be so quick to judge. He is a GREAT person. I am sorry to the neighbors this happened, but please cut a guy some slack. Thanks!

Daniels father just past away suddenly with a anurisim in the head about 2 to 3 weeks ago and Daniel was distraught and totally needed some theraphy. Also I understand he had another close family member to pass prior to that and some people are just family oriented. God Bless daniel! I am also sorry for the Police dept because with a toy gun, they had no other choice. For the others...Thats why I don't like living in a neighborhood or condo.townhouse setting...God Bless Daniel and I sure hope he can get some theraphy..He sounds like he is depressed.
