David was a kind and sweet person taken by the throat of the big fist of life. He needed help and could only be too proud to deny it. some one who screams for help and then runs from it is someone who needed it most. I still read back on the tragic story and try to remember what i admired about him. How I know what he felt when he felt trapped by society and the crass shallow people we are surrounded by. Me My I's everywhere and for once he felt it was about him...and his wants...he lost control... and it was too late..shame on the ones who feel no compassion...this was Davids lesson...let it be learned

Manfredi shot him in the back...Dave got what he wanted but that cop murdered him and I'm glad he's been fired and became a sex offender and drunk. He deserves to rot in hell.

Dave called me that night - was one of his best friends. He had no intention of hurting everyone, he didn't want to live anymore and couldn't bring himself to do it. He wanted the cops to kill him and to make them look bad at the sametime, which he accomplished. The cop who shot him has since been fired, hes now a drunk and a sex offender, and I hope he rots in hell. Dave DID get his way, he got everything he wanted. Manfredi isn't a cop anymore.

Not saying every police shooting is justified but people need to take responsibility for their own behavior when confronted by a police officer. My sympathies go to Mr. Hill's family but my support, gratitude and deeper sympathies go to Officer Manfredi.
