It happened right in front of my house. I just wish I had the chance to put a bullet in his head! Karma is alive and well.

So the police fired a warning shot through the suspects head?

Why doesn't the reporter know if he brandished or shot at the police?

Not to worry...sadly, there will now be two lines of attorneys vying for the chance to, one, defend the surviving suspect, and two, to file wrongful death lawsuits against the police for the second suspect's family.

He must have reached for a weapon and didn't listen to the cops yelling,"get on the ground." Ding fries are done. DRT - dead right there.

The Mercury used to be known for solid reporting. Now they report a suspect summarily executed, it's not mentioned whether he was even armed at the time. And then the reporter states that it's not know whether he brandished his weapon -- a weapon that he may or may not have had.

If this fragmented reporting is correct, the police blew it big time here. I'll be interested to see what the full story is.

Sounds like three warning shots to the head to me. More than five officers and it's like throwing a live cow into a tank filled with great whites. Really too bad about the farmer though. Not too many of them left in the land of unrestricted development.

Waste no pity on this p.o.s., but rather spend your pity for their innocent victims.

Really should take some lessons from the guys over the Hill. We have a ton of Scum that need to meet their end that same way right here in our city.

We really need a Police Chief and Sheriff that says Screw the System! Lets just start busting heads. Put that swill of a homeless center and loser services out where the old Texas Instraments plant is located.. I was driving to Costco on Saturday, saw a BMA making a drug sale right on the corner of Fern and River.. Right around the corner from the Shelter.

Its time to bring some old school disipline back into the city!

Your right. Why they chose to block traffic for so long is complete incompetence on the part of the police. As for dropping a double murderer as he tries to escape - AWESOME!
