Kent was a great guy & will be missed so much. I know the cop that did it too and I think it's sick what he did.

It's too bad that the situation took that turn. Did the officer have a fitness test recently and fail? Last I knew one should be able to take down an unarmed man without drawing a gun. I would have his badge. Unnecessary death. Thoughts and prayers are with all who knew him.
Jean so sad

I knew who Kent was. I use to live across the road from his mom and dad when he was just little.. Such a horrible tragedy..
Did the officer have to shoot to kill?? I do not think so! Di the officer call for back up? The officer should have been trained to take down a suspect with out using his deadly weapon. Man if this was an ordinary citizen that shot Kent, that person would be locked up. Hide behind the badge , that is right. God forbid that officer ever has to really fight hard crime in the cities. Well ya know what Officer, you have his blood on your hands for the rest of your life.Hope you can keep you head up. You should rot in prison for what you did to that young man.God will be your judge and jury some day and you will be sentenced to rot in hell!!!!!!!!!!

As far as I am concerned, somebody as small in size as that officer
should not have been allowed to be in law enforcement. That officer is barely 5feet 6 inches tall and is way undersized physically to be in that job. The gun makes him big! Now a life is lost and families will miss their loved one forever. He proved nothing by shooting him other than he is unable to handle the requirements of the position he holds. If i'm not mistaken i believe he is currently working again fo a couple departments part time, what are those citys and villages thinking?
There used to be minimum size requirements for officers, i think the changes made in that law caused this shooting to happen

hi my name is larry i have a story that needs to be told even though i know this is not going to be suited for all
readers and some are going to be angry some shocked some are going to say wow didn't know that we live in a split personality
community im sure that we were all shocked to find out about george diaz and the recent killing that happened even though it
was brought to our attention in the first 24 hours we knew all the names involed and pretty much everything was out in the
open murder is murder a life was lost now that i look back after i myself tried to kill myself with drugs that i was giving
by a doctor so i feel i can talk about this and i know that the police is going to come after me for this but what the hell
i have had worse happen the police here in sanilac and near by counties kent kramer lost his life by the hand of a police officer
but some how we still dont know what happened it was covered up by a shield that says protect and serve and the man that took
kents life walks the earth has not been arrested and that has not been out in the open it has been swept under the
rug covered up why? because our protect and serve police thats why they can do illegal stuff protect there self's dont let
this throw you now i ask you do you feel that you are secure being protected by the very ones that took a life and covered it
up ok let me tell you alittle bit about how you are protected did you know that these same cops let a murder suspect walk free
yes thats right they let a murder suspect walk free right here in port sanilac also in lexington his name was joseph roman
also known as hoodie he killed a young man in new york in 2008 and was on america's most wanted and on the run and was let go
by the the same police that is suppose to protect and serve you and me ....... i dont need to tell you that this was wrong
i have lived here for over ten years and during that time i have been harrassed by this same law till i cant stand it anymore
even tho i have done nothing wrong never been arrested here i have long hair and a beard and i fit the profile that police
use to profile and search out drug dealers and thugs any way me and my wife was on our way to sandusky to replace a burnt
headlight for our car on the way we passed a female officer that spotted me as a passenger in that car and saw a opportunity
to do a bit of racial profiling i have been sick and i know that i am suppose to have a id but that does not give anyone
the right to do what this cop with a attitude did we were pulled over and i was ran to check what i was all about this is
normal and i didnt think much about it i came back clean so this woman cop came back and acted like i had giving her bad
info to cover up who i am so she ask to make sure that she had not written the info down wrong so she said now that i look
back at it the second time ran same result clean so she just couldn't beleive this so third time i was run bushy hair and
beard she thought something has to be there ......... so now comes the ultimate insult and threat yes i was threating she
told me that after the 3 time's of being ran for warrants and come back clean that i was a ghost and when i ask her what she
was doing running me 3 times and i thought this was getting close to in my way of thinking i was being racial profiled
because of the way i looked she came ungluded and told me in front of my wife that she could arrest me and hold me for
me for 24 hours and do another back ground search on me i was shocked dam this woman cop has it in for me for some reason
so i shut up like i said i am sick and i have heart trouble im not suppose to get upset so i let it go and after making me
feel like i was a total loser we were realesed and we went on our way was this right no it was not
