has anyone check the legal statics of both men,suspect and victim? Because if these two men are in fact ILLEGAL ALIENS they should have been deported long ago and our brother officer wouldn't have to live with the fact tat he shot and killed someone...

Obviously hes not the criminal here you unhearted BEAST!

The criminal was the one who stabbed the innocent victim and the officer had the right to kill this person if the victim wasnt being stabbed 159 times!!!!!!
