we have a case going on in our county in which a deputyand his ride along were gunned down. one of the questions that keeps being brought up is who fired first the suspects or the officer. my question is does it really matter who fired first? if we are threatened we do not need to wait for them to fire at us first before we attempt to protect ourselves and others. do you agree?

Its a defense lawyer, liberal media ploy. In an ideal situation the officer would always fire first. Its called self defense which includes not getting shot or shot at.

Sounds like more backing from the ACLU and media, almost as bad as the verdict in New Jersey.
If policy says you cant fire first in your dept the question becomes do I want to see my family again and then if the answer is yes to @#^% with the dept! Stay safe stay alive.

Yes, that is what I would say. Media loves scandal, hatred and malcontent. A Heroic police officer gunning down a bad guy doesn’t sell as many papers as a “Dirty cop taking his issues out on an innocent Drughead Thuggy”

The unfortunate reality is that PAIN, DEATH, SCANDAL, MISERY, MURDER, CORRUPTION, ETC… sell more papers than good wholesome stories. There are a number of stories that get a “Media Spin” put on them. They play certain segments of a sound clip and run them together so that it makes a person sound like they are saying something that they are NOT saying. It isn’t very honest, but they get away with it time and time again. If you don’t believe me… how much have we heard about Paris Hilton, Anna Nicole or that cop that killed his Wife & child for his GF’s sake (either one). Jone Benent or the countless other stories regarding the Evils in the world today. Then compare them to the number of “People Saved” or “Crisis Averted”, NO; those get second or third page on the paper… or a 15 second blog on the news.

If there is a gun present you can bet your a$$ I am not waiting for them to point it at me or shoot before I take them out. Action is faster than reaction.......

Here's a thought for you.

The media does not have a Code of Ethics.

The only people in a courtroom that do not need to be sworn in are the attorneys.

Just based on that, you make up your own mind.

A reporter, a lawyer and a cop we're talking about an on going case. The reporter laid out the scene of the tragic crime that took two innocent lives and the suspect who was from a poor family. The lawyer spoke on behalf of the suspect and described how a person bereft of a decent upbringing due to his childhood circumstances could not be held to society's standards. It is unfair and "immoral" to hold such a person accountable when they were without moral compass from the start. ^Then it was the cop's turn to speak.^

The cop spoke of law and justice. He described how we all know the difference between right and wrong, but some choose to ignore the rules of behavior for personal gain. He then stated that whether the jury finds the suspect to be guilty or innocent will be irrelevant...a mother will never see her sons in life again.

^The cop was cut off suddenly as the reporter decided to return to the lawyer for a second perspective.^

"It is true that a mother will never see her son's again, but how can we take another son away from another mother because of one simple mistake?"

*Now ask yourself...what is the state of America's moral compass? How long until this story becomes the norm?*
