Kid deserved it. Terrible choices have consequences. Threaten and charge an officer multiple times and don't comply, all bets are off. Sucks for both sides

Anyone know the name of the officer, or at least initials?

re: University of South Alabama student shot and killed by campus police


Life is choices. I choose not to get all fricked up (allegedly) and bang on a police station in the middle of the night. Instead I chose to sleep in my bed so I can work the next day and provide for my family. I pretty sure a cop won't shoot me in my sleep in my house. You never know though.

So the kid was a small and not musclebound wrestler? Makes total sense.

You also have to recall that a lot of the officers at USA are not at peak physical conditioning. I think there are maybe two that could handle this kid, the rest would either have to taze, shoot, or enjoy their rape.

EDIT: Just out of curiosity, how many people would be OK with this if it wasn't a cop and just a normal citizen defending themselves?

What do his height and weight have to do with anything? He was a muscular wrestler, not some chess club geek charging the officer. I'm usually anti cop, but this seems justified. I would have rather he shot him in the leg, but this doesn't seem like the cop's fault.

Guns are meant to kill. Shooting to wound is usually grounds for a lawsuit.

Not enough is known at this point... some people are obviously not willing to accept that in this thread and just want to assume the cop was in the wrong.

As to shooting him elsewhere, I think law enforcement is trained that you when you shoot, you are using deadly force. In other words, you are shooting to kill, not disable. Maybe someone in law enforcement can clarify/confirm that.

Completely justified, don't act like a fricking idiot and this doesn't happen

Sounds like bath salts, PCP, or angel dust or whatever it's called


And fwiw if someone came to my house in the middle of the night id do the same thing, shotgun would make it a little nastier to clean up though

re: University of South Alabama student shot and killed by campus police


Just based on the article, I have no issue with the shooting. The kid was fricking deranged. How many of you have ever been confronted by a deranged person? If you have then you know how dangerous that situation can be. The officer is still a human being and still prone to human fears. Crazy people that are aggressive are very dangerous and easily could make someone fear for their life. I guarantee that most of us, if in the same exact circumstances, would have shot the kid as well.

A tazer would not have helped in this case, assuming the kid was insanely hopped up. I've been in that situation and the tazer had no real effect. Basically just got my attention.

Size is irrelevant when a person is hopped up. I once seen a 120 lb girl high on meth take three grown men to the ground and wrestle a gun away from one of them before she was shot four times before she stopped fighting. Yes she died.

re: University of South Alabama student shot and killed by campus police


im just saying he should have tased before killing him


he was obviously shooting to kill, but an unarmed student coming at a police officer? i think he could have exhausted another option first, considering the kid had no weapons

either way, tr s gic situation

Charge at somebody with a gun butt naked after you've been going full retard for a couple minutes is a good way to get your shite blown away.
