This shooting is typical of the "homeland security tactics'being taught to local police officers.Private citizens are treated the same as terrorists.This is wrong and must be stopped immediately.The public are beginning to view police officers as trigger happy thugs who have no respect for American citizens.A speeder should not be treated the same as an armed felon during commission of a deadly crime.This brings to mind the swat team who crashed into the wrong home on a drug bust and injured several innocent citizens.We should all have respect for our dedicated,honest and hard working police officers who protect us from harm.Most fall into this category.Those who disrespect honest citizens should be removed from this position of trust..

Sam,
WAKE UP! It doesn't matter if there was no evidence linking him to the robberies. That guy could have pulled over for the police as soon as they turned on the flashers and this whole thing wouldn't have been a story. and Larry would still be alive. It was Larry's choices that led to his death, not the police. By pulling over, he could have allowed the police to sort things out, figure out he wasn't the robbery suspect and go from there.

WHen faced with a cop with his gun drawn, I would gladly listen to his instructions to not give him a reason to shoot me. I would rather spend a night in jail and sort things out in a court of law than push daises from 6ft under.

Sam, its pretty obviously you have no idea what you were talking about. If a fleeing suspect throws the car in reverse and tries to RUN OVER police officers who are on foot, what other recourse do they have? Maybe you're one of those liberals who think cops shouldn't be allowed to have guns.
