I can understand the officer making split second decisions, but this is a bad call all the way around. Have the courage to admit you made a mistake!

Policeman do need protection too. I understand that, just explain how a sleeping man threaten the officer? It will never be justified.

The truth is the young man prints were not on the gun. Somebody is not telling the truth.

I still call it murder!!!!

i believe that if you walk around with a gun and/or are in a gang,youre just asking for trouble. parents should do a better job with their kids to prevent this kind of problem.

i dont believe that the officer should be fired.being a policeman is a hard job.making split decisions is not easy. i am sure he will live with this for the rest of his life.
