the VPD doesn't use fake guns ! take your drug dealing asses back to where ever you came from ! Great job VPD, you could probably do this every day and nobody would notice, except the bad guys whose numbers seem to be getting smaller. just cleaning out the gene pool

Execution style? Mother, please don't play the ole race card on this. He died because he was stupid and selling drugs in the early hours, from the convenience of his car and outside his home. Brash, lazy and stupid.

He brandished a gun and the police reacted as they should when they may have been in imminent danger of being shot themselves.

Lets get this investigation over with quickly and get these officers back on the job as soon as possible. We need their diligence and not just at Pepper Street.

Besides it doesn't play well into the argument about compensation. Unless you are Silas and then you complain if they were not gun happy thugs they would have recognized the weapon as a pellet gun. LOL!

This good boy and the excrement with him are both on probation for felony gun charges; how soon before our local democrat, "liberal" judges let the surviving rat out once again to terrorize our lives?

Really? Do you have some inside information that the rest of the world doesn't know about?

I have seen the same modus operandi on my street, miles away from good old Pepper Street. What these guys were doing, unfortunately, wasn't unusual and probably why they displayed a nonchalant attitude to the police.

No way I would believe what a cop says they are on the take like politicians and judges.

He probably had plastic bullets in the gun, just in case. Maybe these guys were related to Joe Biden...............
