Kevin Ballard: shld have shot the leg or arm to un arm the person, not a fatal shot. geez wats the world coming to?

Bill Victory: people in this thread have no clue of what officers go through ..I spent 22 yrs and I will tell you that your not trained to wound ...You don't shoot a leg or an arm ,The reason being is if you hit a bone or small part ,The chance of ricochet increases and possibly injury or kill an innocent person, If that happened then the media and the public would have a field day . I say to those who bash the police ,, Apply ,get hired, go to the academy and change the world ....

Debra Broadnax: 62 years old really?? Why fatal you could have just injured him not kill him!!! just nonsense make it make sense no justification here!

Brandon E Gustafson: right and if you wound,they have a chance to shoot back. these officers did what they felt was right.

Katherine Ohara: In this day and age PEOPLE are too crazy. Itsad but putyoursel es in the Officer's Shoes

There’s a lot of other methods that could have been used here, the bottom line is there is always a way to resolve these issues, they want to kill that’s all there is to it I’m sure this person had arms and legs so why wasn’t this an alternative target, it’s because thes basturds have a liscense to kill they are above the law

Sure shoot the arm are leg, then gives the fool time to shoot officer. This is what is wrong with our country today. And I understand there are some bad cops, but they are not allowed to do their jobs. That's the reason your not a cop, your not out there facing the crazies your on your couch watching TV, at your maybe office job, or maybe food service whatever job you are not facing a life & possible death situation. I think it's time we go back to letting officers do their jobs.

If they wanted to help people, they would have been EMTs. Police enforce laws. Period.
