Hey there destroyerman. We spend tax dollars on far less then a human being. I knew this person, he had a family and people that cared for him. I would hope that if you ever reach a dark spot in your life that no one would say the same about you.

When it takes five days for the police to confirm whether or not he had a weapon there is something wrong. And how many times was he shot? It only takes one bullet to wound someone and isnt that what self defense is. Sounds like over kill to me. I didn't know him personally but i lived in the same town and knew family and defintly do not think there was anyway he could have been that dangerous. The news is only concentrating on the fact that he was a felon people make mistakes and change. Who are you to judge and who were they to take away someones son, brother and dad.
