    Lisa, He was a decent person that had issues that in the end caught up to him. Unfortunately his common response to conflict was to run. I wished he had just given up but he did not.

    Just cause someone runs doesn’t give the cops the right to murder! But, cops are the only ones who will murder Americans & get away with it!! And for someone to be gleeful over the murder of a citizen by a swine (pig + cop = swine) that apparently was NOT in his district as the Sheriff’s Dept is taking over thE “investigation” of murder by a pig so they can cover it all up.is one sick chick!! The pig gets a “paid vacation” for murder, while the victim’s friends & family are in despair, shocked, devastated, in utter disbelief, & deep mourning! Its time to stop the terror these “cops” cause!

    Just Darwins law holding true, don’t cause trouble with a guy with a gun. If someone is stupid enough to do that then this really is not a loss. Whatever happened, he could have avoided it by cooperating.
