Michael Allen was my cousin. An the news is making him look like the bad guy when he wasn't. He was a wonderful guy with the sweetest heart an the garland police took him away from me an my family. Cause of them y'all will never know him like I did. I really hope that cop feels SOOOO horrible for shooting him an killing him cause now natalee has no daddy.. Every girl needs her daddy.. I just hope the cop realizes that what he did was a mistake an that he should have handled it way differently especially not using guns..

I know he was your family but he was also routinely running from the police and endangering other motorists, these are not the actions of a good citizen or father. It's unfortunate, but the police officer was put in a situation where he feared for his life and opened fire, it wasn't as if the officer came to your cousins house and shot him. It was dark, at the tail end of a 30 minute police chase, and their cars became pinned together with driver doors next to each other, the police officer couldn't see inside the elevated truck, saw abrupt movement and feared your cousin was going for a weapon(reasonable considering he had ran from police twice in the last week). The officer opened fire, what do you expect from your cousins type of behavior? Sorry for your loss but don't act as if this officer is some type of asshole, your cousin endangered countless innocents during his police chases, he was in the wrong and you know this.

ok first of all,why would you say anything to any person that knew michael allen and be negative about it... he was running yes we all know that,that was wrong we know that also... but why did the cop corner him in a neighborhood and ram his truck and proceed to shoot 41 times,not shooting at the tires but pretty much at michael..michael didn't have a weapon,wasn't even being pulled over fr a non violet crime... and then take a person cell phone tha lived in the neighborhood( who recorded the whole thing)and return his phone 4 days later with it erased,its already been proven that the cop lied under oath...why did he lie if he was such a good cop? Unfortunatly michael allen,a 25 year old who has a huge family and many friends,can't be here to tell you his side... really all we can go on is what the news and paper,and online states but we all know there is usually more to the story than what they will tell public... this situation is so sad,all I can think about is his parents who had to bury there kid,no parent should ever have to do that,and a little girl who all she probebly understands is her daddy isn't coming home... seriously regardles wha u feel about this,when u see family and friends on here defendeing him,let them...they r the ones who r living this....if u didn't know him this is a news topic to u and that's it,this is there reality.....I'm pretty sure you would do the same if the situtaion was on a family member of urs,jus cuz michael did something wrong doesn't give u the right to judge him against people who love him unconditionally...there is only one judge... have a little heart and respect.... this is a horrible thing and all the negative comments is just more daggers to the heart of people who r truly going through rough times right now.... r.I.p michael,keep ur eyes on your family and friends they r missing you a great dealmotorists, these are not the actions of a good citizen or father. It's unfortunate, but the police officerfire, it wasn't aseach other, the police officer couldn'tpolice twice in the last week). The officer opened fire, what do you expect from your cousins type of behavior? Sorry for your loss but don't act as if this officer is some type of asshole, your cousin endangered countless innocents during his police chases, he was in the wrong and you

Why don't you feel bad for the 82 year old woman he beat the crap out of who will never recover. it is NOT the Dr.s fault, it is the individuals that participated in this horrible crime. I know the people they robbed and the lady he nearly killed. Read the story you morons HE reversed the truck and tried to slam into the cops. I am SO ecstatic that another member of this group was busted today in my area and he sang like a bird. The Dr.s didnt give these fools meth. You can be sorry that your relative took the wrong path and got himself killed, it is tragic, but he was an adult; don't make him out to be a saint, when he was far from that. I can promise his friends didn't think about him today when they were stealing from people in my neck of the woods.
