a burglary suspect who runs and points a weapon at the police deserves to be shot

no matter what his/her age.

"L-M-P-D says he does have a lengthy criminal background."

It is difficult for me to feel badly regarding this tragedy. An up and coming criminal has experienced an early termination of his chosen career. Oh I'm confident of the outrage that this situation will generate, but I'm still grateful to the officers and pleased that neither suffered injuries. The anguish and emotional trauma the officer is sure to experience is regretful, but it should be noted that his responsibilities to the community were met. A dangerous criminal is neither dangerous nor a criminal any longer. The perpetrator is now "smarter" than he has been in awhile, but it is a shame that neither he nor anyone caring for him acted intelligently prior to this outcome. Now let's chime in with all the sentiment and bleeding heart driven passion that I know to be inevitable.

Learn the facts before you start ramblin this bullshit. Let me enlighten you, the "gun" that he supposedly had was a cell phone. Police spent 3 days in the woods where he was murdered looking for a weapon and one was never discovered. They searched the entire neighborhood and never found a weapon. Like I said, the facts change the story.

Anytime you break in someones house, that is the risk you take. A homeowner can shoot a burglar too. I suspect he will get little sympathy from hard working people, few things in life worse than a thief. It isnt at all suprising that the police chased a burglar in the dark and saw something in his hand and shot him, they arent going to wait around and get shot to clarify it.

If you read the other post regarding this, you will learn that he wasn't breaking into a house nor burgarlizing it. It was a friend's grandmothers house. I can guarantee that none of you know half of what you claim to know regarding what happened. People log onto the internet, create a fake name that noone will recognize them by so they can talk all the shit they want to make them feel better about themselves and make others think highly of them when you are nothing but a coward.
RIP Little Brother!

Are you calling yourself a coward cause you're doing the same thing you're accusing everyone else of.

I dont see a post saying it was his friends grandmothers house. I dont have a fake name, i am a trauma r.n. but i can give you my name if that will make it all better, im not talking shit , it is true that if a person breaks into a house , that is a risk that they take, doesnt mean that i persoanlyy know he was innocent or guilty. I hardly think posting our opinions about about a posted story on a board designed to do just that makes any of us feel better about ourselves or to entice others to do so and im hardly a coward. If what you say is the truth then it is unfortunate but i dont recall seeing a article clearing his name so maybe you should find that article and post it for us all .

Post #7 it is stated.
Now of course they are not going to go back to the media because why would they admit they are wrong? If they did that would be the right thing to do, but 80% of cops are crooked and think they can get away with anything because of a badge, and most of the time they do because they are government, who is going to stand up to them? Its not right and will never be fair.
RIP Little Brother!

I am not talking shit about a 16 yr old murdered. I am defending my best friends honor trying to get other people to understand that just because you heard something on the news doesnt make it true, just because it came from a police officers mouth doesnt make it true.
No one will ever know the truth 100% because the only person that does was wrongfully murdered that night.

by Thomas Hodgkins. Thomas Hodgkins killed Evan Harlow, the Straight A student. "Why was he killed? asked Michelle. "Why did they not shoot him in the leg? Why did they not use their little stun guns or whatever and try to save somebody's life instead of killing somebody? Seems like they are quick to shoot and then ask the questions." Evan Harlow's birthday is April 26th
