    There is no deadlier gun to have pointed at you then 12 gauge shotgun. I would say the shooting was justified if in fact he was not cooperating with police orders. 12 gauge has terrifying knockdown power.

        Jim, are you actually as ignorant as your comment? Stand in front of a 12 filled with birdshot. I got money riding that you get knocked down. Dufus

      The officers had no right to be there Darren did nothing illegal nor nothing wrong at all and he was not ordered to drop the weapon they unloaded their whole clip as soon as he opened his front door…

    When a Officer says put your gun down , do it , or the Officer is justified , no investigation needed !

    We would know exactly how it went down if the officers were wearing cams!. It’s time for the public to demand all local law enforcement be provided with vest cameras. This needs to be a mandatory part of police uniform.
    Lets see, Gun.. uniform.. badge… bullet proof vest… vest cam…….
