Sad,sad,sad. But at least we only have to pay for one trial instaed of two. MHO they should of also shoot the other idiot to death.
God Bless the officers and their families.

If he has any brains, he may have been running, by that point, and the officer can't just shoot him if he's no longer a threat, no matter how many of us would like to see him sent straight to Hell.

I'm very happy that the officers are okay, and, on a minor note, that we didn't have to pay for their funerals.

If you vote for government, you have no right to complain about what government does.
