All i heard is that the POLICE shot FIRST!!
the guy was running away from him and the police shot his leg to try to stop em...

to me that's a cowardly move by the cop

the law should stop protecting cops and start defending the residents 2

cops kill people all the time and nothing happens 2 them but when they kill one of them they wanna give the death penalty to a resident

I challeng the over opininated public that have made these comments to read the truth of the already on parole criminal that did this to a police officer.
Please remember officer or not, he had family and now they do not have him.

"all you heard"...So just because a public defender says the Police shot first you believed him? You weren't there, you don't know what really happened, but you automatically judge. Walk a mile in someone elses shoes and perhaps you would be able to see that they are defending you and if you weren't putting yourself in a position that caused the police to be involved there would be no issue. He shot and killed a man in cold blood, and your comfortable making a comment like that? Just a few words for you, ignorance and karma.
