they want to hate and blame someone and can't even get the name right. why does everyone automatically assume the cop did something wrong. people die every day and if druge were involved, that probably has something to do with it. you may want to check to see if the officer acted within the WPD policy and procedures. if he did there was no wrong doing, if not there will likely be discipline. dont lay all of the blame on the officer just because you THINK he did something wrong. get the facts and go from there.

WIL LEAN, you are an idiot. How can you possibly have all the facts? Were you there? Is your middle name GOD? I think not. Your "ROUND" Scooter was a drug dealer and has had a heart condition all of his life. He made the decision to run from the cops and if his drugs were injested to keep from being busted, that was his decision too. You want to throw the race card and make this another Jena. If the guy that died was white you think you would have white people marching to the police station? No. Leave race where it belongs...50 years ago.

So where were you when your "homeboy scooter" obviously needed help in kicking his "PCP/Cocaine" problem that got him into this situation in the first place?

okay, i think it is horrible what happened to this guy. i didn't know him personally but i have seen him around alot and regardless of whether he was white or black or if he did drugs or not he still did not deserve to die. i don't know the facts of what really happened because i was not there. but i do know that this sounds alot like what happened to doug thompson...and guess what? NO ONE DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT! the only difference here is that the white community let it go and the black community did not and in my opinion i don't think they should!!!!! even if the guy was on every drug in the book, i don't believe the police should use so much force in apprehending a suspect regardless of race, age, or their way of life. they can't just kill off anyone that they believe is not an upstanding citizen. that is RIDICULOUS!
Thank you for this post! Good jo and well said!

i don't believe either instance was a case of police "killing off" a person. doug threatened to kill every cop on the scene and while attempting to get control of him he aspirated. he was so high and feeling no pain that several officers could not get control of him and ended in a tragic death. i would be willing to say that you would not give a damn if he had killed any of the cops that were there just doing their job. scooter's case will be investigated (as was dougs) and the truth will come out in the end no matter if you like the outcome or not. i would not tell anyone to "let it go" but i would suggest that we do not jump to conclusions until the facts are determined by the investigators.

BTW your post about unlawful arrest has no bearing on any of this. scooter had 2 felony warrants and that is all the basis needed to make an arrest. i do not know all the facts about the thompson instance so i will not make any assumptions.

I agree, if he was already in handcuffs. Why did they continue to tase him. Usually if you have a warrant (or serving one), you go to the person's home first. You don't get out of your patrol car and start chasing someone down the road (into a field). Did he actually die at the emergency room? Did he die while under watch of WPD? Where are the the tasers??? They will tell the true story on how and why they were used. A lot of questions, but not answers. That's typical for a town like Winnfield! I see it hasn't changed.

I DO NOT KNOW THE YOUNG MAN THATS LIFE WAS TAKEN. I KNOW THAT IF THIS HAPPENED TO MY SON I WOULD BE ONE MAD MOM. I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT ALL THIS IS TRUE (IF THE FACTS ARE CORRECT) THESE POLICE OFFICERS ARE SUPPOSE TO PROTECT US NOT KILL US. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DO THESE MEN HAVE TO GO THRU BEFORE BECOMMING AN OFFICER OF THE LAW? ALOT OF THE OFFICERS LOOK TO JUST BE COMING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. KIDS WITH GUNS!

This is a very tragic event. When the autopsy report comes back,either way, will this be over. I think not. If it comes back the police were responsible, they will be made an example out of that they can't do as they please to us citizens. Then the other side, if it was something else this young man died from then it will be known as a "cover up". This is no win situation for anyone. It is sad, but I do know this,God has a reason for everything. We might not see it or understand it, but He does! We need to pray for all that is involved in this tragedy!
