Did anyone see that the a citizen killed the cop-killer who had murdered the Franconia, NH, officer over the weekend? The citizen picked up the officer's weapon and shot the perp as he attempted to flee. Does anyone think the citizen should get a heroism award?

Yeah, as a mater of fact, I do. If he lives in that community his life is going to be pretty rough as the Kenney/Miller clan admits that they are “outlaws,” but they are probably also one of the biggest draws of money to the area between tennis and skiing.

Mr. Floyd and his son are both heroes and should be treated accordingly. God bless them both.

I am grateful for, and respectful of, their willingness to get involved. I'd be glad to see them pubically appreciated because I think it is all too likely that they'll end up being sued civilly by the perp's family. The District Attorney is not going to bring criminal charges against them, and that is as it should be.

That cop-killer was convicted of assaulting the same officer back in 2003. That is so screwed up!

I salute the citizen who shot Kenney and stopped this wayward and reckless young man! It is reassuring to know that citizens care and are willing to serve and protect their communities. My prayers go out to Cpl McKay's family and to Mr Floyd and his son for their heroism in the face of danger! There is NO JUSTIFICATION for the shooting of any law enforcement officer. Once again, the Kenney/Miller families take no responsibility and try to justify what happened. Kenney disobeyed the law PERIOD and threatened the officer! The officer had every right to protect himself! The way these young men acted shows the contempt this family has toward law enforcement and the justice system. I agree with markdewdney...we should be able to sue these "misguided" people. They are ultimately hurting their communities: 1)Taking available officers away from other service calls 2) Costing other taxpayers a loss in protection coverage and maybe someone's life. Showing wilful disregard should subject them to civil/criminal sanctions. What's good for law enforcement is good for its citizens. I am certainly NOT impressed with Bode Miller nor his family (to include the Kenney family). Maybe the Millers or Kenneys need to reflect on what should have been done early in their lives to prevent this tragic situation from happening. Challenging law enforcement is inappropriate at any time and any place. There are systems in place for "grievances" (if there ever was a beef between the corporal and Kenney) but as we all know, many "violators" claim we do all kinds of things to them that are unfair and wrong, when in fact, we are doing our jobs and they are attempting to deflect blame from something they caused.

More citizens are needed , I think this guy should get a medal or something. Coming to the aid of a police officer when he could have just walk away, shows that he care about what was going on and he acted. There is not to many citizens who wuold have done that. Job well done.

One of my fellow officer's, who has a prosthetic leg, got into a fight with a methamphetamines user. the Suspect grabbed for the officer's duty weapon. The officer was forced to the ground because his leg was coming loose and he was trying to maintain control of his weapon during the struggle. Two citizens came to the officer's aid long enough for the officer to gain upper hand on the suspect. The officer took custody of the suspect. If it was not for the citizens getting involved, the officer could have gotten hurt or killed, as well as all other civilians. I do believe citizens should be awarded any time they help the police. The citizens could have done the easy thing and walked away, instead the citizens risked their lives.

More than that, I believe that cops should be allowed to sue those who don't come to their aid. I even believe criminal charges should be brought - but we all know there's no DA in the country with the balls to pull something like that.

We always cruise slowly past traffic stops, etc (actually stopping would be too much, and interfere with the active officer); the general public just doesn't realize how much danger cops are ALWAYS, twenty-four-seven, in.

However, nearly every time I've been struggling with a suspect, members of the public have stepped up to at least ask me if I need help, and frequently pitch in, which is contrary to what my instructors taught me (that nobody even calls in when there's trouble).

I believe he was ex marine. He is a brave man and deserves recognition. I am sorry for the loss of the officer.

I agree, definitely awards should be given and hope that the public sees that we do appreciate their help!

As each of us puts on the badge and gun, I am sure we would hope and pray that if we ever encountered a situation like this that we would have a citizen like Mr Floyd. I have been shot myself twice in the line of duty, both during high risk warrant service. I was fortunate and had other LEO with me during the raids, they effectively nutralized the threat each time. I am grateful for my brothers that had my back those unforgettable days. Some of our brothers havent been as fortunate. Cpl. McKay was unfortunate to lose his life, however to look on the bright side of things; there was someone with enough balls to take a stance and do something about it instead of watching like a morbid freak. Its a tragedy we lost another brother, however KUDOS to the Marine who took out the piece of shit scumbag who robbed us of another brother. I think he should receive a commendation for his bravery! We should all, as LEO's, pick up a piece of paper and pen and send the proper people a letter to let them know we all feel this Marine deserves the proper commendation for HIS bravery. How many civilians would have done what he did? I would love to buy this Marine a beer!
