I vote only for killing non conformist americans like the us govt always has done, no need to branch out to the returning marines. who will do your killing if you kill your own?

68 bullets. I see a coincidence here. Richard Nixon was first elected in 68. When this whole thing started and given the boost by Reagan. I wonder if there isn't some kind of Satanic connection of sorts.

I am so sick of the stupidity. Who else will you call at 2am in the morning when someone is breaking into your house?!? Law Enforcement, that's who!!
Yes, there are some bad cops, they are a disgrace to the uniform. But...for every bad cop, there stands an officer of the law. One who is willing to risk his or her life to help a stranger. Indeed to save the life of a stranger.
As a native born AMERICAN who just happens to be of African ancestry, I am sick and tire of the race card. "Oh the poor underprivildeged black person." I am a retired public school teacher. I am sick of children who's highest aspirations in life is to aquire a "golden bridge" for their teeth, a new pair of Nike tennis shoes (You can get a good pair of tennis shoes at Payless or Target!) and an Escalade. Why not spend that money on getting an education? Yes racsim exsist. Yes there are people who hate based on the color of one's skin. Yes. Yes. Yes. Get on with life! When will we all just be AMERICANS and PROUD OF IT.
This is about the best post I have read. We are Americans regardless of color. I am a little mouse but I am American because I was born and raised here. We need to stand in support of each other instead of pointing fingers at people whose skin color differs from our own. Color don't make us different. Our attitudes does. And there are stinky attitudes in all races even among us mice. Just saying..

My father and uncle both fought in Vietnam. My grandfather fought German soldiers during WWII but no German soldier was a match for the Southern racists he encountered in America. I agree that this man was extremely wrong for shooting a law enforcement officer but race is not an issue here. The issue is good old-fashioned humanity. I am sure that one well-orchestrated shot would have taken him down. These officers went into overkill. My husband and I are both educators who teach our children to be culturally sensitive to everyone regardless of race. We teach them the value of hard work and education and we volunteer and give to our community. Please do not generalize all African Americans. We do not assume that all White women are murdering their children as did Casey Anthony.

A link providing proof of your statement would make you more believable. Right now many find it difficult to believe your salacious comments. We await your link of proof.

What is the matter with this Country is people like the first post.
I would like for that idiot to go into the thick woods with a tranquilizer gun and shoot this animal, wait for several minutes and peek around a tree to see if he was asleep.
He got the same trial the deputy got.
There was no question about his guilt and I don't care whether he was BLACK, WHITE, GREEN OR PURPLE.
Get a life "concerned". People are sick of this race card issue about everything on the face of the earth.
