Last night as we sat in our living rooom we thought we heard some fireworks. Lots of them - really quickly. But it didn't sound quite right. Neither of us said anything until we heard the sirens and roaring police cars fly down the street. Shortly after the ambulance with a police and fire escort headed back down the street. This incident occured directly behind the police station on Lincoln. Being the victim of home invasions and car thefts myself, it still doesn't feel so great knowing someone lost their life - no matter how little some of you think it was worth. The police have an incredibly difficult job and they have my respect but we don't know what happened. I only heard one type of shot - repeatly. Was this guy running AWAY? Hopefully the investigation will supply the truth. Please remember he does have a family and they are grieving as is a community that everyday feels a little less safe.
and that was car that someone worked for sorry you steel a car you need to die, what if that was the only way for someone to get to work, and to every cop that reads this be safe

Did you happen to know what his 30 arrests were? Retail theft, and narcotics, and trespassing. That sounds like a real "violent criminal". He did not murder, rape, or child molest someone. He was his own worst enemy, and I don't think he deserved a death sentence, for stealing a car, or a chase. What did you do when you put all those people living in buildings in harm's way, with 60+ bullets flying all around? Didn't really care what they were going through, did ya? Just shoot someone up in a car, instead of trying to resolve a situation peacefully, that's all you are good for, trigger happy cops.
he ran from the police, you don't steal someones car that they have worked for 30 times he went to jail, theft is theft,
