Let's review: He attacked his father then attacked a police officer responding to the scene...the police officer WAS doing her job.

Learn to spell, acquaint yourself with proper grammar, and teach your sons not to be such troublemakers.

This police officer did exactly what she was trained to do. The mentally ill victim was charging at her when her partner shot him. People are so quick to jump to conclusions, especially when an officer shoots a person.

va native your are wrong" but at the same time you are right. yes the so called police officer did just EXACTLY: what she was trained to do. and that was TO KILL: which is exactly what her crazy pathetic ass did.

these crazy devil's which most of them are, should never be armed with a deadly weapon. they should be taught or trained that, the citizen should never be killed in attempted arrest. because first and formost their job is to defend the pubilc or citizen's. at all cost,if it mean's the police's death. that is why they have the job to begin with.

this woman murdered an innocent person, in the improper distribution of her duties, and should be prosected for first degree murder' along with a financial liability, lawsuit.

this man" had not been charged with any crime, and in the eyes of the law of the land was INNOCENT. and was denied his civil right's by this insane so called police officer in improper and abusable use of her duties.

you say let's review' the situtation here. and then you say, in just a few word's that the police officer was doing her job.

was that police officer's job to arrest that person" at all cost, up to and icluding killing the person. chesterfield county has probably 700 so called police officer's and probaly many dog's and here was just one single person, not even armed' with any kind of weapon, and this so called police officer' had no other choice but to kill the man.

this police officer" should be in prison, right now' along with the police commander and her training officer's. it is very vey evident that the policemen out here today have been trained to be nothing but professional KILLER'S. this officer and the whole police force should be governed and overseen by a citizen's review board.

never" ever, should such an incident as this be investigated by a fellow police officer. that is nothing more than one killer investigating another killer.let tell you citizen's out there" these crazy evil devil's see every one of you as potential's killer's or criminal's, and you need to desperately get control of them' befor you are looking down the barrell of their gun, or they have knocked your door off of it's hinges.

you can take it to the bank" that if i was the gov' of this state, this police officer along with the fed officers and state policemen that murdered the mam in dinwiddie co, would be in jail right now awaiting trial.

very' very hard to believe that, all of you prople out there are all right with this kind of action' from your local police. especially: va and chesterfield co.

could it be that you are all ready' scared to death of them? if so: then, you should have no problem realizing why the whole country is so screwed up' especially : washington.

all over all you knot head's: not willing to get involved, in the running of your country. no wonder that a small hand full of crooked politican's, in charge of people like the sherriff or a few other offical's can take over and run a whole dam state or county.
