These officers need to start treating people like humans and not like animals. Twinsburg cops are also know for treating African Americans in the worst way.

No one human being should be able to take anothers life without paying the price. They should fry his *** he does not deserve life he deserves death. Just like he took Josh's life we should take his.

He needed to protect no one. He needed to act appropriately. Ashford is a monster...was then and is now. I'm sorry that you think the way you do...maybe you are just ignorant...maybe you have bad experiences....who knows....wake up. Police do their jobs. Twinsburg Police are good men. They don't walk around with their chest out. Respect the officers and they will respect you. Maybe you get treated poorly because you act poorly...ever think of that?

Guilty! Guilty! Guilty! There's not much else to say about this Trash! You don't shoot someone four times in the head without the intent to kill! And you always respect the officers of the law, they are not always perfect but you do respect them.

I live less than a mile from where Officer Miktarian was murdered. For years, my family has endured loud music coming from the vehicle of Ashford Thompson. Did the jury hear how many times he had been pulled over by police, how many times he was driving under the influence, and how many times HE was rude to police? Let's keep that in mind when you read the articles here. This was not a random stop. It was business as usual with Twinsburg Police and the Thompson man. His girlfriend is not credible, also with the same criminal background. Officer Miktarian did not have the opportunity to dispatch his canine because Thompson acted fast and with intent to kill. Yes, two families have been torn apart here, and so have the lives of the many residents of Twinsburg who have not had closure in two years because this criminal has been milking the judicial system!!

Apparently you have not been to our quiet town of Twinsburg, when the only time my neighborhood was loud was when Thompson came home in the middle of the night after bar hopping... Twinsburg police are quite respectful and have been a source of guidance and a positive presence for most children in our school system. Shame on you for believing another criminal (Thompson's girlfriend) without hearing all the facts!

How does that defense attorney sleep at night? Does he SERIOUSLY believe his closing remarks? If so, he is as guilty as the poor excuse for a human, Thompson.

Well said Prosecuters...I guess the defense was just doing their job. Let this be over so BOTH families can move on....also the community! My heart goes out to the community and both families that have been torn apart...especially the officer!

Let justice be served on this garbage. There is ZERO excuse for what he did, and it makes me sick to see all these apologists come out of the woodwork trying to rationalize coldblooded murder.

With the closing arguments of the defense he makes good points but Ashford's life was not in danger with a taser therefore he was not in proper sight to use deadly force. I think Mr. CCW can back that one up easily. I think his previous track record of no violence should be taken into consideration. If a Cleveland Fire Fighter can shot 4 innocent kids in cold blood and get life, maybe it is time to spare at least one life here.

He deserves to die miserably and his miserable girlfriend who lied like a dog should go with him. he needs to know the fear of dying, but he also needs to feel the misery of prison life and live as the prison beyach for a while too. can't wait to see this bas*turd die. That officer and his family deserves justice finally. This murderer has never shown one ounce of being sorry. He smiles in the courtroomm as if he is proud. dude isnt sorry and is a piece of dog s*it.
