After watching the video on the preachers website Melvin looked like he was fighting the officer, and since the guy was fresh out of prison maybe he didn't want to go back. Hit the officer in the head and grab his gun and was shot. Sounds like open and shut. Good job officer for doing your job no matter how unthankful the guys family is

I believe that court should have been held somewhere other than the officer's hometown. i understand he says it was self defense,but why was no backup called in or why did he follow him all the way home before pulling him over and also why does no medical attention get called after he was shot. No help no nothing ..just left there to suffer. And he was trying to grab the gun? How do we KNOW this .. it isnt shown in the video... just saying. and the crackpipe in the vehicle?? if we told a cop it wasnt ours it woulnt matter one bit.. we'd still be locked away.. my opinion.
