I feel that the state should look into this investigation and get down to the bottom of what really happened. You just can't go off of what the officer said and here a young man is now dead. I believe that something else happened and that the officer should loose his job and let jusitce be served. That's my comment.

Always innocent until proven guilty unless it is a police officer. Get the rope out and hang him the hell with an investigation. I bet if it were your life directly that he was trying to protect you would have a different attitude.

cops are not saints like you all think they are. they have the easiest job in the world. more people are killed working in circle k stores then police. 99.9% of the time just are just riding around chasing girls, looking for people running red lights or trying to figure out how to get over on the next person whos path they cross.

So since you BELIEVE something else happened here the officer should loose his job? Were you there? Did you get some inside info that no one else here got? If not, I can't understand why you would instantly call for this officers job.

Alot of people like to point fingers at the police and call for heads to roll when this kinda thing happens but we weren't the one in the life or death situation. You can't really understand what goes through a persons mind when they are faced with the possibilty of death, everything happens in slow motion, at that point a person is relying solely on instinct.

Easiest job in the world??? Riding around chasing girls??? You Sir are a total idiot. Your probably just a pissed off ex convict. Everybody who has read your comment is alittle dumber because of it.

Tell me what cops do if they don't ride around doing nothing all day. They stop cars only if they want to, they might get a few calls to answer everyday but most of the time they are just riding around burning gas, checking out the girls, talking to people or they are stopping people for not wearing seat belts because they have people convinced not wearing your seat belt is dangerous. More cops are killed because of bad driving habits than are shot. They break the law more then we do. Check them out on the hiway. Sometimes you can count 4 or 5 of them from different towns/cities/parishs passing thru driving well above 80 mph. I see them all the time. I guess you're right. Their job is dangerous. driving that fast talking on a cell phone to some girl could get you killed.
COPS are lazy. thats why they are cops.

murder

Deputy John Gaudet attempted to interview the passenger, identified as Kenneth Miller, 28, of White Castle, State Police said.

Police said Gaudet, who had gone back to Lewis’ car, got into a struggle with Miller, who reportedly attempted to disarm the deputy, and shots were fired.

Police said they believe the shooting took place at 9 p.m.

Miller was pronounced dead at the scene by the Iberville Parish Coroner’s Office.

Lewis was booked into the Iberville Parish Detention Center on counts of speeding and reckless operation.


Iberville Parish sheriff's deputy, John Gaudet told investigators he shot and killed a man after that man attacked him and tried to grab his gun during a traffic stop, but the dead man's family isn't buying the sheriff department's story.

The deputy had stopped a 23-year-old for speeding and already had him in his patrol car when he went back to the car to question Miller, who was the passenger.

So what exactly were you in jail for?
We know it couldn't have been stupidity, because you would have gotten a life sentence for that.

This proves nothing, its just a statement. How did you conclude this was murder from this simple statement?

The only murder charges of any kind I can see from this statement is Attempted Murder of a police officer against the dumbass who is now dead. CASE CLOSED.

Listen people, if you are stupid enough to try to wrestle a police officers gun away from him, you deserve to be shot.....PERIOD.

isn't it a bit odd that the passenger didn't try to run while the deputy was getting the driver into the back of the patrol car

we only have the deputy's word on that
