No, it shouldnt.
On a side note, attacking a police officer and going for his gun might get you killed.
Cigar robbery didn't cost them their life... retaliating against an officer acting in self defense did. It's not legal to go up and shoot someone with no cause solely because the guild of theft equates with a death penalty without due process.

No emotion involved. That's why the whole damn town is on fire. They are basing this all on emotion, and emotion should play no part in a Grand Jury proceeding.

Holy hell, doesn't anyone in Ferguson give a damn about, you know, what really happened?? I weep for our species.
The robbery of chewing tobacco, snuff, or pipe tobacco is a serious felony, and I think a sentence of five to fifteen years, depending on aggravating circumstances, would be appropriate. For cigarettes, something more--twenty years to life sounds about right. But cigar robbery is such a heinous felony that the sentence should be either life without the possibility of parole, or the death penalty.
