Would the Costco shooter be in jail if he weren’t a cop?

There are “more questions than answers” about last week’s deadly Costco shooting, Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said, and he’s certainly got that right. It is hard not to ask questions about the incident in which an off-duty LAPD officer shot 32-year-old Kenneth French to death at the warehouse store in Corona on Friday night. The officer also shot French’s parents, both of whom remain hospitalized in critical condition.

Herrera Cata: show us the picture of this coward already!

Chad Beadle: He should be in jail. Cops shouldn't escalate situations. it's a bad shooting

Victoria Elizondo: Even if tape had been released a normal citizen would still have been arrested until tape & other evidence was reviewed.

Mona Sierra: I dont even believe he was knocked unconscious. as said at the beginning of this . he was released asap now there he was unconscious would had been in hospital longer..and to shoot mom n dad I believe he went trigger happy.show the whole damn video of beginning to end.

User from CA: Release the tape for the public to see! If the officer was in-fact knocked out it supports his case. If he was not knocked out and just pushed he needs to be arrested immediately! Enough with the double standards.

uh ..yea..they didn't even take him in for questioning the day it happened. I know if I drew down in Walmart and shot someone I would have to prove my innocence at least..not this guy. To hey just let him go

Oh, I didn’t realize I was reading an LA Times article. “Why do off duty...carry guns and why are they so quick to use them?” Ignorant reporter who’s telling the one sided news to your Mexican picture looker-at-ers! Why did you bury the ethnicity of the cop?

You can't arrest anyone before you look at camera footage,talk to witnesses,etc and see if a person was the victim.Cop or not.

I believe this cop was just insecure and a loose cannon; c'mon now carrying a weapon and holding a child at the same time at public place like Cosco? He didn't have no other alternative???

I just think that if your a police officer or any person in a place of authority you should be hold to a higher stander. If you get the perks and privileges then you should also be judge even tougher then your average citizen...

There would be no shooting had this guy not provoked him. Most of us wouldn’t be able to recognize someone with mental problems just by a quick glance, this guy was off his meds and had no business attacking a man with his child. It’s too bad for him and his family that he attacked the wrong guy.

he was off his meds so he could have been a very violent person at the time of the incident and he didnt care who the man was holding his child he put his hands on him so if anyone of you were in that situation you probably would have reacted the same way so everyone just has to wait and see the outcome of it all

didn't cop have to unholster his gun to shoot and then did he shoot with the child in his arm or let the wife get the child while he shot up this family. As they say more questions!! Good 2 Law Enforcement agencies investigating.
