The Off Duty officer needs to be investigated for shooting the 4 individuals. 3 were shot in the back and all 4 were unarmed when shot. He is not in Iraq anymore...justice is different in the US.

The Off Duty officer used high powered shells to gun down the alledged offenders. They were unarmed and fleeing the scene...maybe they would have had a chance if they were not black. It would alo be great if the police department would tell the truth and not cover for their brother in blue. He's a hero in the devils eyes.

It sounds as if the alleged suspects went into the restaurant with a gun, with the intention of robbing the business. Three of them tried to run when the owner/customer produced a gun. The fourth tried to disarm the owner/customer.
This is not a situation whereas the shooter was trying to chase away some noisy kids. The shooter was responding to a criminal act.
And how do you know they were black? Or are you assuming this because of their intention to rob the business?

I am surprised that we do not have candlelight marches to the city hall or Jesse Jackson coming to lecture us. Imagine shooting these four outstanding young men.

Totaly agree. are you just assuming this because of their intention to rob the business. This officer did just what he was taught to do. He defended the public and applied himself to the situation at hand. He should be be commened for doing so !
