      well said however we don’t know the details. maybe the officer felt threatened for his life and had to use deadly force. if not we need to train out officers to use deadly force only when warranted. a man should not be killed for trying to Rob you because u have a gun.

        Yes I agree; more pressure is what they need because they have murdered a lot of innocent people. You hypocrites, while I am not happy with the crime situation and believe that the police can do more to stem the violence , I support the decision not to. All because of hypocrites like you who will only support police action when you or your family become the victim. It appears that police will only f fend themselves and I support their decision. Let the criminals rule! Sometimes as a society this is the only language some of us understand. You hear garbage like he shouldn’t have killed him or why didn’t he shoot him in the leg. I guess some would have preferred to read that another person was murdered on our streets. Now as for me; I support tough action by the police against those criminals. Someone must have the backs of the defenseless , someone must be willing to take on those criminals to save our society. So officers I support you fully and will also support your actions against those criminals. I will in no way betray you – although you betrayed yourselves- deban sousΓ¨. So I warn you, trust only yourself.

So sure…someone is robbing you with a knife along with his accomplices and you’ll carefully sort out which body part to aim for??? Stupes.

      Look up gross motor skills vs fine motor skills when one is in a high stress situation. Further aiming for arm or leg will give the one armed with a knife enough time to attack.

    The bandit could have been a family member but you have to pay for what you do. I will feel sorry for him but the harsh reality is if he was just arrested he would spend 2 days at our 5 star hotel and then be out on the street again doing the same thing. Who knows when he gets out he could kill an innocent citizen like me through his dirty habits…….

      Save his soul? At least we know is not the soul of the thief you be praying for. Thw officer could have been a dead man and what…tou would bury him and have a vigil or walk for him… the God you and I serve is a forgiving and understanding one. Do not take everything in the bible too literal. The officer did nit mean to kill the man…it was a reaction and self defense…God will punish him for that? Go to church tun pal. How else could he have protected and defended himself? Christianty have you cofused!

    For those saying the officer should have shot the bandit elsewhere.. ..were you there??? Did you see what happened for you to judge that the officer had any opportunity to shoot the man in a different area? Do you know if there was a scuffle? Do you realise it was three against one? Do you know that stab wounds kill? In this day and age wouldn’t you feel like your very life is threatened? I don’t judge the officer at all and I don’t feel sorry for the criminal. They all must know that one day they will do their nonsense to the wrong person.

    As a gun owner you learn to shoot from waist up, so please educate yourselves. Are you all aware that even getting shot in the leg can kill You? People crying because the guy had a knife, saying that it didn’t warrant his death are forgetting that this man was outnumbered yet the thieves still chose to show his weapon. How many has to die at the hands of criminals for the cry to be, “enough is enough”. Take you all island back. Some here don’t know the scriptures but want to quote verses out of context. Don’t misunderstand the commandments in the name of Christianity. If you knew anything about killings you would see when go told the children of Israel on numerous occasions to enter a city and destroy every living thing. I have no mercy for any criminal, once you attack it will be an honor to protect myself and my family. One of us will be buried. Awesome thinking officer.

    Ordinarily perhaps shooting in the chest could have been excessive. But let’s not forget the officer was confronted by 3 men. Who may have all been carrying a weapon. Put yourself in his shoes. Imagine minding your business and three threatening men come up to you at night, one brandishing a knife. Nowadays people coming to steal and kill, as if you owe them your money and life. Imagine adrenaline rushing there, and being surrounded by 3 potentially hostile thugs – I would certainly shoot one with deadly force in the hope that the others run. Apparently that worked. Self-defense people.

    I have never seen a target with arms or legs, only the torso. To have shot him any lower than the torso would mean that he did something wrong. When one in in possession of a firearm and pulls it out it is only with the intention to shoot to kill. If you had any kind if training you would know. Lazy bums let them find something constructive to do with their time. I’m gainfully employed, a single mother yet I find time to plant a garden. Why can’t they do the same or find something else to do.
