Why does it have to be somber? Celebrate the man's life. I am sure he can be remembered for something other than how he died.

If police would quit acting like an ounce of tin pinned to their chest gave them more rights than everyone else this kind of thing would not happen.

More peace officer and less law enforcer please...


If more people acted like civilized human beings instead of crazed animals, there could be more PEACE. Everyday you read about people killing, beating, raping, stealing, or somehow hurting each other. How would you supposed we fix that? Or deal with it? Seems you have issues with the law, judgmental or just bitter?

You are eight times more likely to be killed by a cop then by a terrorist...
Most of the people that do the beating, raping and stealing wear badges and are protected by the state that they kill, rape and steal in the name of. I challenge you to debunk this sad fact.

Not to mention if as many people acted like 'crazed animals' as you say, Andy wouldn't have been the 1st officer killed on duty since SPD was founded in 1825.


Thanks Winston this doubles if you are a minority. The samething NWA was talking about about in Fu** the police.


So what you are saying is you don't like the police?

Or ignorant statists that think empowering a small group of people with a 'legitimate' use of violence is somehow going to create an atmosphere of less violence.


You must still be butt hurt about Rodney king huh?

What about Sean Bell or Amadou Diallo or Dwayne Dyches, Brian Hall and Pete Hopkins or Abner Louima or Timothy Thomas or Danny Reyes or Kathryn Johnston or Robert Davis or Timothy Stansbury or Oscar Grant III or John Thompson and let's not forget about Kelly Thomas.

Zach, you're a moron...


Shame to you Winston, Contango, or whatever you by. Decent human life needs valued.

Shame on you for allowing your apathy and comfort to blind you from history repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself... repeating itself...

...and if you want decent human life to be valued you may want to rethink consenting to a protection racket that assumes it's legitimacy with a monopoly of violence.
