I strongly belive the shooting of Sean smith was wrong and I also fine hard that the news papers and news media as not doing any follow up with this matter " is it because he is black or cause he is homeless"
This is a crying shame

The homeless are a scurge in our city only to rats. Show me a homeless and you will see a shoplifter, drunk, drug user, sex pervert, strong arm panhandler and the like in every one. Dont feed them or give them money. We support their lives. If they dont get your money they will steal it. Period.

It is a choice to be homeless. They make no effort to get out of where they are. No. I do not have a dime...and how can you afford to smoke...I cant. There you sit with a cig in your mouth asking me for money?

I've never seen a homeless person with a gun.. Mind you i know some do carey gun's i guess.But any-way's to shoot him come on.What really happen we'll NEVER know well we..Cop's are cop's they stick together.If you think about it they got the power to do any-thing and get away with it.. As long as just he and his partner are there..Just because he was black they had no reson to shoot him . Black people had it hard as it is.. Don't you think it's about time for us to GROW-UP and start living together in peace.. The native are getting back every thing that they had taking away from them.. Money;land; And most of all.. There right's..So you see.. What about the black people.? Remeber what happen to them..They had bad thing's happen to..Think about it..Not only small thing's they lot's there family..Killed.beaten up..Don't you think it's about time they all-so start getting stuff back..You can never replace loved one's..

Wow you must have lots of hate..There's all way's a reson why a homeless person is homeless..In some cases..Have you ever stoped and lesson to there storie.Why he or she are homeless..I see a homeless person yes i give a dime..Well let me say it's more then a dime..We could one day be where they are. You never know one day..And if we ever are i bet you a dime we'll want them on hour side cause they know were to go for food to sleep were it be safe.. And how to stay alive on the bad street's we live..So next time you are asked for a dime why knot give a buck or two it's not going to brake you.. It's only afew buck's..But then again you could be one of those people who think they are better then other's..If so man do i ever fill sorry for you..I know many people like that and every-one of them i know there husband's are screwing around..Some people have to OPEN there eye's..And bye the way.. I laugh at that...Seeing the up above people of us all hurting like that...hahaha.. Love it

my brother is the man that was shot by police, first of all he wasnt homeless, he ran the street because of a drug problem that he had. he was so called considered homeless because of that. he has 3 sisters and 2 brother that took care of him when he decided to come home. second of all he was shot in the back running away from the police. they were trying to serve a misdermener warrant which guns are not to be drawn at all. and then after shooting him while running away, they then walk up and shot him again... the police mistake in all of this is they thought they were getting rid of someone they thought had no one to love them like family.. and sean smith had a lot of them dispite the way he wanted to live his life at the time. but out all of this he has gotten his life together. and the police department is under investagation for this matter.

Maybe they should have tazed him first or something but if he pulled a weapon on the police officer then the officer should have a right to protect himself. Kill or be killed. If you don't want to get shot then don't run. I am sorry it is a very sad situtaion and I will pray for all involved.
