the charlotte police dept. has committed murder. this man had no reason to point a gun at someone he knew was a cop. his company truck with the company logo's was parked almost right up to the door. this was a cop who has no idea how to do the job that he has. what was he disciplined for a while back? why are they covering that up? why is he not having to take a polygraph? anyone else in a situation like this would have to. there are a few good cops. most are to sorry to wear a badge. mr. furr was murdered. someone needs to do something about it.

This "cell phone tower worker", was my very good friend's father. He did a lot for the community he lived in and the schools around it. He Didn't point a gun at the officer. Some say it was just a flashlight, others say he was pulling out one of his tools. Either way, Mr. Furr (Victim) was shot for absolutely no reason that I can figure other than the cop being paranoid.
