I disagree with the fact that the detective who shot Adrian Canley should be on admin leave. It's apparent the detective did his job. First, he acknowledged he was an officer, yelled for Mr. Canley to stop yet Mr. Canley proceeded to try to run the detective over. The detective had no choice but to protect himself and even though he shot Mr. Canley, the detective administered first aid to the suspect. And now that I know that Mr. Canley had a gun in his possession, there is no telling what he would've done to someone else had the detective not tried to protect himself. The way I see it, the detective not only protected himself but it could've turned out to be an innocent bystander who would've been killed

I'm glad that dectective is on admin leave. Adrian can't talk for himself because he ain't here anymore. Second the only people that know what really happen are witnesses and people involved in the situation. Media always finds a way to pump up the story to catch peoples attention. Were just going find out in the long run who the suspect really is. As of right now it's a murder case just like any other case that happens on the street. law enforcement or not! Let the court judge the case.

This was more than just a murder, they stalked and killed Adrian and the truth will come out. There was no unrelated investigation. Why was the shooter really there? Why did Adrian not pull his weapon if he wanted to harm the shooter? Why did the truck not cause any damage to any property if it was going fast enough to harm someone? Why did the shooter leave the victim and return to his cluttered red undercover van several times before other deputies arrive? Was the gun placed on Adrian? Do I as a civilian have the right to identify and undercover and leave without getting shot if the shooter was there for some completely unrelated reason? What crime was committed that required deadly force if he identifies the shooter as a cop and decides to leave? If a truck backs out of a parking space to leave and there is only one way out of the parking lot, does the shooter have the right to say Adrian was trying to run him over just so he can kill him? Why were there two quick shots and then three well aimed kill shots? Why was the scene completely cleaned before sunrise? Is the crime with the shooter or is it systemic with Ventura County Sheriffs? The shooter should be behind bars not on paid leave and a federal civil rights investigation should take over this case?

Look the guy was armed, and tried to run over a police officer. The shitbag got what he deserved. Life doesn't go on without consequences whether they are immediate or occur later in life. He died right there for being a dumbass and breaking the law in the first place then trying to run over somebody.

How come all the "victims" shot by police all have criminal records?? Canley had been cited in recent months for making criminal threats, disturbing the peace, and being under the influence of controlled substances. What a great guy!

Could it be that the officer, after additional police arrived, planted the gun on the suspect?

Why did he go away, then come back and show himself, giving aid to the suspect.

Shooting and moving vehicles is not allowed. There could have been hostages in the auto. Must they die too?

Why did the officer not step aside, and get the license plate number and have an investigation; rather they play cowboy and kill a man .

There will be a cover-up, no doubt.

Could it be that the officer was freaked out because he just took killed someone who was trying to kill him? Do you think that police officers just carry around extra un-traceable guns just in case they get to kill someone??? Are you kidding me why didnt the officer just "step aside"!! I'd like to see you "step aside" when a known criminalis trying to take your life. Sadly,Canely being gone will benefit socity more hinder it. We are socity of laws and we need to start producing more moral and law abbinding people, not thugs and criminals

I agree ^^ Canoga High. The story in the L.A times stated that he walked up to the 'plain clothes" detective, agitated, walked away and then try to run him over. There is a big gap somewhere in there. I hope for the sake of Adrians friends and family that the truth comes out.
R.I.P Adrian, you where a good friend.

~~a shit bag doesnt get so lucky to leave this place we call "earth" so quick... hes at ease.... wether he did wrong or not.... thats a moral and lawful judgement.... but the fact that HE CALLED THE OFFICER OUT...(even if under the influence) is in a common NORMAL hindsight... only leads the entire DEBATE... you be the brain... i aint tryna explain.... all i know is the choices that become BEYOND AN OFFICERS 9-5 JOB AND TURN PERSONAL ARE THE VERY REASON EVEN THE HONEST CITIZENS CANT TAKE THE LAWS SIDE

Jaycee, folks like you seem to come out of the woodwork every time a cop shoots a bad guy. The truth is you hate cops and authority, probably have most of your life. If you're any race other than white you may even have just cause for that hate. I am not blind, my ears can hear well. I hate bad cops... You just hate cops. As far as I'm concerned our prison system is one of the most abused political footballs used by our elected officials to squeeze the taxpayer for the "much needed funds for police and prisons. Hey let all the folks who are doing time right now for drug related and other non-violent or victim less crime go home. Then NEVER FREE A VIOLENT OFFENDER! Fill the prisons up with violent criminals and NEVER FREE THEM!!! Why would you want to. If "little Johnnie (Black, White, and everyone else)hasn't figured out by age 12 that rape, & murder for example are of the most horrorific of crimes against persons AND they commit there first such crime. Toss em'. A cell for life, 3 meals a day and whatever life he / she can make of their lives from behind bars. As a taxpayer I'll gladly pay my share. What violent gang members? My point is the good cops get buried from view to everyone you speak too because you only have hate. Thats too bad and the world ain't fair. I was a cop once and
believe it or not not all of us wanted to brawl, get into shoot-outs, beat on someone with a stick,
or bust our knuckles belting some drunken loud asshole in the mouth. Some of us took pride in our ability to gain the trust of non-english speaking people maybe of color... maybe not. Few bro cops cared to try. I wasn't one of em'. But I know what the real world is all about, and if and when my hate exhibits itself, it will be with just cause, and never because of what I hear on the news, or the tons of shit talk that folks start taking right after the pigs shoot someone. They don't know shit about what happened unless they witnessed the event. And as we all no theres never
a frigging witness when some black kid gets shot in some crap neighborhood... and 145 witnesses all ready to swear that that cold blooded pig gunned down that poor fool for no reason! Don't you think that if there were really so many witnesses around the cop would murder someone in cold blood. No I think they prefer their regular paychecks, and look forward to making it to retirement without being fired, let alone proscecuted. THINK
