It sounds like a career criminal got his wish. I think that the family was aware how messed up this guy was.......they should have helped with his problems. And for the treehugger "peaceforall" give me a break, you are not aware of what crap we deal with each day. The judges are so liberal and the justice system slaps these assholes on the hands over and over until they are pushed up against the wall and have to take action. Look at this guys rap sheet, he was not a good person. I think we are better off without him both by society standards and financially. Sorry, its the truth, and people like you are why we are dealing with Obama and his wreaking crew.

Michael: You don't know the half of it :) I do want you to know that I respect, support and will defend to anyone what the officer did-he is a hero.
