Not true. And no, one cannot use deadly force during every assault or battery. the fact the officer retreated and was followed by the victim weighs heavily in the officers favor in justifying this killing.

Stop being stupid.

First of all firing at a moving target isny as easy oh heres one in the leg now stop reisitng .

Second of police are trained to shoot to kill not to wound.

Third of all drugs like lsd amp a persons adreneline giving them almost super human strength a tazer or baton would have been worthless here.

Hope that any lawsuir is summarily dismissed.

I've never heard of anyone on Acid going berserk like that. Must have been a nightmarish trip.

Anf never mind that cops arent robots and you have to consider their own adreneline. Wbich is exactly why they are taught to fire at the largest target. Center mass. Less chance of missin

Can't really tell by the article, but I think if the cop truly thought his or other peoples lives were at stake, then it was justified. We need to see the video.

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


The main thing that bothers me is the fact that this was "CAMPUS SECURITY" and the officer had to of known (or at least suspected) this was a student. It's not like the officer was cornered in a dark alley in Prichard. I said this in the previous thread, but I don't think the officer exhausted every option before pulling the trigger. I believe the officer felt threatened. I also believe the officer would act differently if he could do it over again. I think it was an error in judgement by the officer and obviously the student. Both sides were at fault. It's a terrible situation for everyone involved.

Why does it matter if the kid is a student? Doesn't make him any less/more dangerous.

And if he is stupid enough to chase a cop around no telling what he was capable of. Tragic situation but one he put himself in.

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


The officer should have had a non lethal form of defense

i know the officer and imo he is not very professional..though i fully support usapd

how can they convict the person who sold collar the drugs of murder?

Bad situation all around.

Feel sorry for the kid and his family. But cops don't fool around if they feel threatened or see someone in danger. Regardless of suspect's age, student, obviously on drugs, etc..

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


I can see both sides of the argument. I'd bet if the officer was asked, in complete confidentiality with no legal repercussion, he would say he made a mistake. Bottom line, the punishment didn't fit the crime.

You do realize that shooting someone in the leg is still deadly force right? Next are you going to say they should aim for the feet?

Because the officer is employed by the university to PROTECT THE STUDENTS, which in my mind means sometimes protecting them from themselves.

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


Yep..and to all the people saying lethal force was needed bc he was high..how could the officer differwntiate him being high as a kite or incredibly drunk? Ive seen drunks do more idiotic things than this

Collar had no weapons. The officer should have had used non lethal forms of defense before ultimately shooting him..if the usapd is not supplanted with these items then that is the fault of the pd..they have camaros but cant afford a taser? and yes i am aware of tge price tag on a taser

So you'd like the officer to fist fight him in this case? The gun was the only thing the officer had.
