It's out of line that the offers 2 of them had to shoot and kill the guy , if they realy needed to protect themselves even though the guy got a knife , why not shoot him in the leg, he would have dropped the knife. But instead Wasco co finest, has screwed up and it will get swept under the rug like everything else, Like the Scott Earlinbush case, they neglected to mention it was an undercover who was involved in that murder. It's sad that we pay their wages to break the law, For heavensakes our lovley D.A. walked out of safeway 2 mo ago with 2 bags of grocieries that came to $29 and his card was declined, so he took the groceries and left, but nothing was done even though it was theft. not to mention the face is plastard all over town about writing bad checks. Amazing we all need to work in law enforcment then we can take lives, and steal and get away with it.

You should really get your facts straight before putting people on blast! I believe that 2 sentences in your paragraph contained truth... the others are speculation and misinformation.
I have worked in customer service in this town for over 25 years, and I can't tell you how many times I have sent product out of my door without payment because 'the card was declined'...'forgot their wallet'... etc. It's what happens when you live in a small town and have trust and faith in humanity. They said they would come back and pay.. and guess what!? 9 times out of 10 they did. As for what happened in that split second instance, we will never know. Those officers put their lives on the line day in and day out so I can take my dog for a walk at midnight.. leave my door open til all hours of the night... let my kids walk to and from school. With everything that has gone on in this town in the past 6 weeks, we should be thanking the officers for continuing to serve our community. It is a thankless job. Nobody likes a 'cop', but who do you call at the first sign of trouble!? If you think the police is failing this community, you should also think the school system is failing this community as well. Your half truths and insightful wisdom was really hard to comprehend through all of your grammar errors and spelling deficiencies. Education, a job, and a little less time on your hands to cast blame on people is what is in order for you... Shame on you for being that one. That one person the news seems to find when an even happens in a small town... The dumbest, trashiest, most ignorant ones come out of the woodwork to get their 15 minutes of fame. Rant over.
