Hey Citizen/Patriot:

Just because you use names like that doesn't make you one.

WTF? How does a cop committing suicide give you justice? If i read the story correctly, the Officer was *NOT* the one that shot the young man. He initiated the stop; he had the presence of mind to use a taser and not deadly force.

I'm glad that you, a "Citizen" and a "Patriot" feel that an obviously traumatized Officer (who did not shoot the young man) taking his life is justice for the young man's family. Many of us feel it is a waste of TWO good lives.

Ignore him. He is our local troll who posts under jerry person/rocky/Citizen/Civilian. He has stolen someone else's handle to post under "Patriot". Patriot normally calls him out.

This person has a huge problem with police officers. Obviously his own brushes with the law have created this. In addition, he has an abnormal obsession with the groping of children, which he projects onto law enforcement as well.

You are best to ignore him. He should be leaving for his ECT appointment soon.

Behave yourself when you get pulled over and you won't be tased or shot or beaten.

Here are some simple rules

Just go away

If the perp would would have done was he was told he'd be alive. I seriously doubt the death of the punk was why the police officer killed himself.

I have had the opportunity to read the transcripts from this shooting. After being tazered multiple times and ordered to the ground. Mr. Bell fought with officers and tried to take an officer's weapon from the holster. This prompted the other officer to shoot Mr. Bell to stop the threat. Tazer failed to bring him to the ground after several attempts. If your son or daughter was the officer fighting with a man that is trying to take his/her weapon you would want someone to do whatever is necessary to stop them immediately or risk the taking of your child's life because everyone wants a tree hugging officer! Unfortunately life isn't easy or simple and there are bad people out there that do bad things. We look to these officers to protect us. Maybe when your child is killed because a tree hugging officer let a criminal go, because they didn't want to hurt him. You can say it's ok, atleast the officer didn't stop him from killing my child.

I am completely disgusted to hear what people are saying on here. A man just killed himself! And you are going to praise this? I agree that you really do need mental help! I knew this man and he was a wonderful person. And his family is suffering a great loss right now. Where is your respect?

Please note that the second post in this column under the topix name of Patriot was put there by the troll jerryperson/rocky/civilian/cit izen. The Turtle Lake troll who will rant against the "just us" system but never tell what he was arrested for!

He's not very good at it. The paranoia in his posts tells us immediately who he is. I fear for his neighbors.

I hope he really lives in WI and that's not just his ISP address! The guy is seriously deranged.
