Yeah, they should have to get close enough to get killed, just like people should have to be beaten unconscious before they can defend themselves.
It happened in Florida and with the sunshine laws the details will emerge quickly. Middleton is going home from the hospital today, the family has already been contacted by a plethora of attorney's.

There are a few missing ingredients to the story such as who called police, how the two arrived so quickly without Middleton noticing them and how far the deputies were from Middleton when they opened fire. Either they're really lousy marksmen or were shooting from afar.

ATF investigates Tavares gas plant explosions

The investigation into the cause of the Blue Rhino explosion is underway Wednesday.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents spoke for the first time about the effort to find the cause of the giant blaze that engulfed and ignited 10s of thousands of propane tanks, just before midnight on Monday.

"They're looking at records, they're looking at any video surveillance, anything that helps them get a closer look at what took place on a particular incident," said ATF special agent Kevin Richardson. The team for ATF is assisting the State Fire Marshal's Office, and includes two investigators that also probed a fertilizer explosion that devastated the town of west Texas in April.

Agents said they have already narrowed their focus to a specific area of the Tavares plant.

"I believe, through the interviews, they do have a focus point to go to," said Richardson.

The man you mention who was a hit and run victim with serious burns on his legs. He was found on the side of the road, he was taken by a police officer to the hospital in his car. Look for the video of that interview if you're interested.
And yes, you're the sort of person who accepts 'dangers' as long as you're safe from it.....I don't get the impression you care much about anything except yourself.
Stay on topic will you? A forklift operator may have sparked the blaze that led to the explosions at the Blue Rhino depot. The badly burned operator was pulled out of the fire and driven to nearby Waterman Hospital prior to the fire department or deputies arrival on the scene.

Simply because a grand jury would indict with no evidence .

I don't have to ask myself why, I know. It was not a capital case and therefore didn't go before a grand jury.

This wasn't about the verdict, it was about some idiot claiming she should be prosecuted.

Does that mean that you put your trust in media outlets such as The Blaze, Conservative Treehouse, Inquistr, PJ Media etc etc etc?

BTW the Sanford Police PIO reported that Trayvon was carrying Arizona Tea. Weeks went by before the evidence photo of the can was released and it was identified as watermelon fruit juice cocktail. It was a big story, many of the links were to early stories. No big deal, neither tea or fruit juice are ideal for "lean" which is typically made with Sprite.

Gas plant explosion: Injured worker hires Morgan & Morgan attorney
By Stephen Hudak and Ludmilla Lelis, Orlando Sentinel
10:47 am, July 31, 2013

Bobby Hutsenpiller was a brand new employee at the Blue Rhino propane depot Monday when the facility erupted in flames and explosions.

"It felt like a ton of bombs exploding all at once," he said. "I just ran for my life."

Hutsenpiller, 23, of Tavares, accompanied by attorney Matt Morgan, met with reporters at the plant Wednesday and described the intense heat and fear he felt.

"Thousands of pounds of propane out there and I just had to get away from there," he said. The explosions began before he was through with his first shift at the plant.

He was one of eight workers injured late Monday when a fireball erupted in the back lot, sparking explosions and fires fueled by thousands of used propane tanks. The facility, located on County Road 448 in a rural Tavares industrial park, shot flames into the air that were visible from miles away.

Hutsenpiller said he was excited to start work at the plant because it was a large company which offered good benefits and steady pay for his family, which includes a pregnant fiancee and two young children.

Monday was his first day on the job. He said he had minimal training before he started his shift at 5 p.m.

He moved empty tanks from pallets to a conveyor belt to be refilled with propane, he said.

He was working near a Dumpster, assisting with cleanup and closing out the shift, when the initial blast hit about 100 yards away, forcing him backward. He fell, injuring his wrist attempting to brace his fall.

He said he had no training on fire safety or the location of emergency exits.

Five of the workers injured Monday remain in critical condition at Florida hospitals, including three workers at Orlando Regional Medical Center.

Investigators from the state Fire Marshal's Office and the federal bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were hoping to begin their probe at the site today.

Blue Rhino often relies on staffing agencies like Customer Driven Staffing, which provided at least eight of the employees working Monday night at the plant.

It was a mostly black but not all black jury and you can bet your sweet azz that they picked up on that the police officer's were lying out their azzes particularly Det. Vannatter.

District attorney Gil Garcetti lost the case by moving it out of jurisdiction to downtown and not assigning his best prosecutors to the case. Garcetti's son was just elected Mayor of Los Angeles.

Car keys and a flashlight is a deadly weapon?
How can you possible blame the cops when racial tensions as bad as they are in Florida.

when a cop gives you a command follow it , I am sure they told him to place both hands in plain sight , and exit the vehicle again with both hands in plain view. It really doesn't matter what he had in his hand he failed to follow instructions , lunged out of the vehicle and was fired upon Luckily of r him the 2 cops were really lousy shots or had too much adrenalin pumping too shoot straight. By rights this dude should be as dead as dead Trayvon . for failing to follow instructions.

Here we have a simple minded negro that is too stupid to follow simple commands. Cops do not shoot anyone for sport . I have known guys that have gone their entire careers without ever firing their weapon outside of qualifying at the range,

OT: but I read that some cops up in Toronto shot some ali babba for failure to follow commands on a train or whatever it was. Canada has these incidents too just not as many YET .
Since you Canucks have let ever douchbag into your country from all over the world it will not be long until the OPP, RCMP or both will be carrying automatic weapons trying to defend Canada from the onslaught of Muslims and other ragheads selling drugs and underage girls. throw in a few black gangs that have been migrating up there for a while. You too van have a shooting gallery for a country.
The main difference is that Canucks do not have the civilian firepower to repel this vermin
