  1. On the surface, this seems to be well handled and details properly communicated. I hope they will continue to exercise restraint, respect and transparency while keeping the public and themselves safe.

    • When Jack deserves to be given his jacket, it should be given to him. The same applies to the officers when they have executed a good job… Shooting a perpetrator in the arm, hand, foot or leg should be their modus of operandi rather than shooting and the end result ends in death.

  2. These guys are attacking police officers in my neck of the woods also. They lucky caribbean police officers not like Stateside officers.

  3. That jus depends on what they officers a shooting ….I mean does it have to be a firearm?…they couldve had a taser gun….Police or not God nvr give another man the authority to shed a next man’s blood….*Put urself in the young man shoes for instance*
