  • How is it that a man that was apparently taken into police custody was allowed to be still in possession of a firearm? That does not make any sense to me.

  • They didnt frisk him at all and that story sounds very far fetched u take a man into custody with his gun still on him wat if he waited on them to enter the car and then kill both of them this is just not right

  • This does not make any sense or it could be that these police are I competence and gross negligence. Whatever stupid ignorance tale they trump up to the lose their job is the least of their pro Len hope the family seek the advise of a good attorney
