i think blue is right are police here shoot first then ask questions later. so sad we have to live like that. in the past few years the paragould police have shot atleast 3 or more people one i know did not have a gun. so don't get me wrong yes they are here to protect and serve the key word protect. not kill .. i thought they where to shoot to wound . i give the police credit by all means. i feel for these familys...
The police in every case I have heard of in Paragould have faced a dangerous situation and have ordered the offender to surrender. People have become so brain dead with drugs that they blame the police and do not obey their commands. If a cop says drop it.. you had better drop it. If they turn on the blue lights.. you had better stop instead of risking the lives of others trying to get away. I hope the police keep up the good work so that all of us may become more secure in our homes and our town.

It was the arrhant boy. He had the gun to his chin. He reached for the trigger and the gun slipped and shot him in the upper chest. He might have lost his arm. Have not heard what they were able to save at the hospital.

According to the Jonesboro Sun, the state troopers did an emergency tracheostomy because he was not breathing at the site and saved his life.

I agree some people in town have fried their brains so badly on drugs they can barely function and forget having them put together a coherent thought.

OK but I'm sorry if a fu*&in child molester that just robbed a bank and had a 12 hr stand off wit you then stands up and shoots at you are you gunna f*&kin aim to wound? No your gunna unload just like them cops that were doin there jobs did. I've been arrested and had many runnings wit ppd and they never shot me so stop blaming the police for all these f#$kin tweekers f*$kin there life's up. Everybody always wants to blame to police but if they wouldn't of broke the law the police would not of bothered them. Its just people would rather steel then work and its ridiculous.

It is my understanding that Corey Arant shot himself and was not using the gun to harm anyone else. He is a distant relative of mine and he is a troubled young man and was clean of drugs and doing good. He may have gotten on them again im not sure. But he does have family that love him and this is tragic. Im so thankful that no one else was harmed and i hope he gets the help he needs and should have already gotten it. He is not a bad person just made a bad decision and he will pay the price for it. Like i said im glad no one else was hurt and if he had threatened a police officer they had every reason to defend themselves just like you or i would.

There is no way he was clean! I wonder if the family that loves him are the ones he stole from. Looks like he is going to be just like his dad.

I dont know him and I am pretty good friends with some of the officers that were there. You need to know that this was a KID. He was 24 ish. I know when me and most of the people that I knew were that age we done some real stupid stuff. No one needs to die for a Stupid Mistake. I hope the kid gets better, I hope he doesnt loose his arm and most of all I hope he has learned his leson...

People rob banks, shoot at cops.. you do dumb stuff like that you deserve to get shot. There is no bigger picture dumb@$$.. you're prob a f'n crack head too.. dont put yourself in a situation here the police are forced to shoot you.. as a tax paying citizen it makes me feel good to know the police are out there doing their job!! They're normal people.. for most its just a job! They're paid to protect and serve.. so when somebody robs a bank at gun point and opens fire they do what needs to be done.. and we the public would be mad if they the cops just let people do stuff like that.. I don't know what happened in this situation but I don't think the cops gunned down some innocent poor fellow..
All reports says he shot himself and was airlifted to the med in memphis

All reports say he shot himself and officers did not shoot him, he already had warrants out for burglary.

like other social misfits in this town. when they commit a crime and the police end up having to shoot them, all of a sudden they are unsung hero's, deserving of the congressional medal of honor.

I know this is from awhile back and I have thought about it a time or two and have decided that I didnt respond to you in the right manner, If you are sitting behinde a computer typing that maybe he will die is one thing. But if you really feel that way you sir or mam need help. As I said befor I dont know this KID and am good friends with a few of those police that were involved and I spoke to one just this morning and he the one standing in the field with wepon drawn scared he was going to have to shoot this man. He was worried about the kid he didnt want him to die. He ask the same question I have why. But if the trooper in the trenches didnt want him to die then what gives you the rite to wish that... Oh yea until the day that you can give a life dont be so quick to take one...
