    i was about 100 yards from the incident. i could not see any of the “subjects” involved. however, i heard the gunshots. there were many and came in fast succession. it would seem to me that the officer shooting was shooting to kill. if shooting in self-defense, why on earth were so many shots fired? why can’t this just be honestly reported?

    The Truth is, is that this was an UNFORTUNATE SITUATION, which was BROUGHT ON BY A DRUNK FOOL!!!

    IT IS WRONG TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE POLICE, AND MAKE THEM RELUCTANT IN THE FUTURE TO PROTECT THE TRUE CITIZENS!!! NOT THE CLOWNS AND CHIMPS OF SOCIETY WHO DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ACT PROPERLY!!!

    SITTING ON A PORCH, SMASHED DRUNK, WITH A NOZZLE OF A GARDEN HOSE, (WHICH MAKES IT LOOK LIKE A GUN), IS WHAT THE FOOLS, CLOWNS AND CHIMPS OF SOCIETY DO!!!

    I Think if you look who is really complaining, they fall into the above category which I mention!!!

    BTW, I heard Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakan and all the other Race Hustlers were RUSHING to the Airport!!! On their way, they were asking, was this a Black Man that was Shoot? Was this a Mexican who was Shoot? Was this an Asian who was Shoot? Once they found out it was a White Man, they cancelled all their Airline Flights and etc.!!!

    WHO really are the RACISTS???!!!
