Celebrating death, even when it's arguably a necessity (as in this case), is disgusting.  

 

 

Ding Dong the B word is Dead!  I have no problem being disgusting.  I applaud he's gone before victim #13.

 

And I don't know how true this is but if it is this is one fast food worker I applaud!

That scumbag shot himself when the troopers cornered him in Erie, Pa.   A real coward!


The drive up Mcdonalds employee deserves a pat on the back for his actions leading too a conclusion with the suspect.

Absolutely. A heads up move. It probably saved more lives.

if the police had to take his life this would be an entire different story, wouldn't it?

>>police brutality, hands up don't shoot, militarization of police.

 

if the man had killed another person, this would be an entire different story, wouldn't it?

>>police don't care to protect us, police need more funding, police are lazy.

 

if the man had simply surrendered to authorities, this would be an entire different story, wouldn't it?

>>the guy is mentally ill, the guy needs help, scumbag should be shot.

 

alas, the best result occurred today.  he will save the states money, save the world his infamy and be just another nobody in a few weeks.  that others care so much to call out others for being cruel to be glad he is dead whilst others announce it as an achievement is irony.

 

i'm glad he is off the streets and i am glad he is off the burden to the public.

My son said that he heard some people saying (prior to him offing himself) that since it was another black man he killed, the police didn't care enough to catch him. :rolleyes:

i had a similar thought today about an incident last night.  a guy ran through my fence high or drunk, but passed sobriety tests.  he and his father helped plumb a remodeled house of my grandpa, so we loosely knew him.  either way, i still called troopers immediately.  had suspended license, a hit and run, no insurance.  troopers came, his insurance read as valid but canceled him 3 days ago after the hit and run.  today he came when my mom was on the farm alone (dad is in SA).  asked her to pull him out, she said no.  went out to try to get himself unstuck, ended up cutting a new hole in the fence just to get out.  its a mess.  the police can do very little right now because he has a right to reclaim his vehicle.  i will have to go to his court date and file a few statements for the bill he owes us and will recover the money but it will be a lot of work to simply recover something so simple only because he has a court date to explain why he drove without a license.  i spoke with several LEO's today - they basically came out and said they're not going to go to whole 9 yards to arrest someone when it's minor like this.  it does no good and it is never worth the time or money.  

 

conversely, high point nc is becoming a huge crime spot.  many of the folks i work for live there, since our facility is there.  there are shootings weekly, and a dozen folks have died in that neighborhood.  i asked them once why we never hear about it - "it doesn't leave our community, we take care of ourselves. and we don't snitch."  it was saddening.  and just a few weeks ago a 70something yr old grandmother was killed in crossfire of a driveby - the neighbor of one of my employees.  she was shaken up.  last weekend there was another shooting.  making up for the killing of that woman.

 

it's a vicious cycle in crime and it's never easy to enforce the law.

By all accounts, he was a very good person, actually.  He helped young people for a living and had no prior record.  Even had a license to legally carry a concealed weapon.  I bet his parents and family thought he was a human being.

 

You didn't even know him.

Neither did u

that's gugny's wrap.  in a very big way i understand that and respect that.  he chooses to see the best in people even when he does not know them - it doesn't matter.  he can see the positive in anyone even when he doesn't know them and they're monsters like the shooter.  he is compassionate beyond what you'd expect.

 

that said, it is statements like his that continue to diminish the good from the bad and create middle of the ground grey areas where we excuse behaviors and develop tolerances toward socially de-sconstructive communities that further isolate themselves from a middle of the road society.  it is the edges that are erasing the middle - of what was once common sense, decency and reason.  and, in all honesty with the utmost respect toward anyone - victim or prey - celebrating the death of someone is not healthy.

Let me be clear.

 

The good I see in this person is the good that he's done, about which I have read.

 

He was a murderer.  He did one of the worst things one human can do to another.

 

I'm not excusing what he did.  I'm not justifying what he did.  I'm not trivializing what he did.

 

I'm simply stating that good people do bad things.  Good people do horrible things.  Mental health is THE BIGGEST problem our society faces today.  We, as in our elected officials via our tax dollars, need to spend more money on figuring out mental health issues.  This guy was given a license to carry a concealed weapon, for the love of Christ.

 

It takes different wiring for a person to willfully end another's life.  That wiring needs to be figured out.

 

Furthermore, celebrating the death of a person simply because he's done something horrible is deplorable.  Celebrating anyone's death is deplorable.

 

He was someone's son.  Someone's friend.  Perhaps someone's boyfriend, husband or father.  Before you raise your hands and say, "yeah, mother!@#$ker, rot in hell and I'm glad you're dead," think about who might be crying because he's gone.
