    I know divorce is a very emotional charged event but cheese & rice you shoot your wife in front of your 7 year old daughter? That is just pathetic. Then you stand there holding the gun to your head but don't have the balls to pull it?


    That poor child had to witness her mother being killed is outrageous and will live with that vivid memory until she is 80.

    Well, it's clear that in incidents such as these ones, where no lives are in danger and nobody has been harmed, a different approach is required. In incidents involving mouthy 13 year olds, they precipitate police brutality and had it coming for not being saints.

    I'm not sure why you feel the need to be insulting. It did appear as though you were trying to steer the thread toward a Tamir Rice discussion.

    If you think it's a valid comparison, then I would say that you're drawing false parallels. The officer that shot Rice was not among the officers that surrounded this killer. No two people have quite the same reactions and people are not programmed robots. They make decisions based on their mental and emotional ability to do so, which relates to the events they've lived and their personal reactions to given situations.

    As I mentioned, I found the effort the officers expended in talking the guy out of shooting himself to be counterproductive.

    Personally, I think the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for this guy.

    As a matter of fact, some of the posters in this forum have claimed that Tamir Rice posed a threat and argued that he was dealt with accordingly because who knows? The situation might have turned into an Aurora-type of shooting. The level of bull**** we have to put up with from apologists in this forum really is amazing.

    Anyways, sit back, and enjoy the acrobatics.

    .
    I agree. It would have saved taxpayers a lot of money and time had he just pulled the trigger.

    I am always amazed how people lose their mind over child custody issues. I am not defending this cop, I just...Well, honestly, I know so much about the court battles between parents, believe me that's really awful. I wish everyone would stop and think and act like adult humans. If you just grab your gun and start shooting...it's not the best way to solve the problem, you know, right?

    He should be charged with 1st degree murder. But he's a cop, so he'll probably be charged with something like illegally discharging his gun in city limits, get a fine and be back on the job in 30 days.
    Come on, that's just really silly. This has nothing to do with any of the threads about police shootings recently. He did this off duty and it couldn't be any more obvious that he did it for personal reasons. There isn't anything to debate here, and no "police apologists" would suggest anything of the sort.

    This is a clear cut domestic murder, and the fact that he makes his living as a police officer is not only irrelevant to the story, it's actually a distraction from the real danger which is domestic violence.

    If he can convince a jury that he was stopping her for not wearing a seatbelt and that she reached for her waistband he might even be cleared of all charges.

    And about off duty officers getting away with wild and zany antics...
