first of all i would like to say what a sad day. I only wish so many more would have the chance to know him. As a close friend to the family i know hom much his family meant to him. his sister and her children meant everything i remember him playing on the frontroom floor with the boys and playing FBI with them all the time. he was a young man that ask your self every one makes mistakes BUT doesn't make him bad or evil. my only wish is that the new, reporters take the time to talk to the family to see what kind of person he really was. he will be greatly miss by all that knew him. the family is and alway will be in my thoughts and prayers, and hopefuly your too.

I also new him he was a grade under me in high school i new his mother mary, brother raelly (not spelled right i know) did not know his sister very well but did know her kids. It was sad to see what happened i was at burger king when it happened and heared the shots fired. the sad thing is that the cops refuse to add mit that he was shot in the head by an officer that came in thru the back door. if i remember correctly mary told me there was 2 gun shoot wounds to the head one by his gun, and a 9mm round. I guess he was shot in the hip and shot him self in the head area on accident then a tomah pd ( fucking pigs) came in thru the back door shot him in the head and left but refuse to admit it. I also know the ppl how was living in the apartment were it happened. RIP Chandler Green

What happened is a tragedy, but he put himself in the position to get shot. Does it really matter if the police shot him or he shot himself? He is dead just the same. You should wait to hear all the facts before you start yelling conspiracy.
My thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends while they struggle to find the answers.

I think the tomah pd showed true professionalism to control the situation and keep innocent people out of harms way. At the end of the day they have to go home to thier familes. if you fucking dumb enough to drive around shooting at houses and cops yep you need to be taken down any means neccesary, lets just thank god that no innocent people were hurt by some dumb ass kid. Just remeber they are here to protect and serve and they did a job well done yesterday. my thoughts are out for all the brave cops that were there yesterday and for the officer who was wounded. thanks for your heroism.

Hey "Tyson Tomah WI", your an idiot. First of all, Chandler must have been a grade under you until you dropped out. Was that fifth or sixth grade? Because you can't spell or use grammer correctly! However, I am glad that you found your dream job at Burger King.

And for Chandler's incident, your right. The police shouldn't have shot back at him. They should have walked up and gave him a hug and asked him if he wanted to talk about his feelings.

Chandler wanted to hurt people and/or have the cops kill him (suicidal).

The cops did their job. No cop wants to kill someone else. Maybe you and everyone else should think about the cops that were involved. These cops can't go home like you and wash the grease (from flipping burgers) off their face. They have to deal with being in a gun fight, and possible dying or killing someone else.

I dont know where this idea that the cops were heros. First there were shots going all over the place and into peoples homes, and you also have a boneheaded cop shoot himself in the foot. nice work Tomah PD you are truly wisconsins finest (not)
