OP, I remember a while back you said something along the lines that your friend didnt commit the alleged crimes?
That the police were out to get him?

I know you may had seen this man in a different light and perhaps felt that what was being done against him was unlawful,
but by the sounds of it, his murder was not the first time he had a run in with the police.

I went through something similar as you a while back.
My friend was found dead in his jail cell. At first I was mad at him.
For every time I listened to him say he was going to turn his life around. Things were going to be different this time that he was out...
But some how, some way, he always managed to find his way right back into that jail cell.
But he choose to be there. He put himself in those situations.

Some people cant change.
No matter how much they say they will, or how much you show them that they are missing on the outside...or
that this time its going to be different.
A certain type always end up right back at square 1
I know first hand how hard it may be to just shut your mouth and let things slide.
When part of me thinks to myself, if this were 10 years ago, you would be snoring on your back. But then the other side of me says "WAIT!!! Dont do it you idiot...were not doing this again..."

Times have changed drastically. 2 people cannot get in a fight and thats the end of it anymore.
its all about others feelings and politically correctness now.

The people who learn to adapt are the ones that have turned their lives around.
They no longer get in trouble.
We can walk down the street with out having to worry if the cruiser is going to pull over because recognize you.

You need to take a look at your current situation OP.
Check yourself over and make the appropriate changes to ensure you can live a good, worry free life.

Remember the term Guilty by association.
It still holds very much true.

From one of the three articles




This incident is being investigated by the Attorney General’s Office in conjunction with the State Police Major Crime Unit. The name of the trooper involved in the incident is being withheld pending the trooper’s formal interview, which is expected to take place this week. The trooper has been placed on administrative leave.



Not sure if thats sop for these situations.


Yes it is SOP. Paid vacation till things 'cool down'. Can't have him patrolling in a hostile neighborhood. As far as not responding to a 911 call, I've witnessed that before.

Yea we know there are just as many criminal cops as criminals .
I dont have any record to speak of ( stopped a fight once and goty a charge ) Really stopped a fight lol
called in a robbery once and got a charge ( just as a by stander lol Lieing to a leo lol Ok guess the cops did not believe me when I told him someone was robbed lol ( same cops bragged about running a prostitution ring .)
point is 9 times out of ten a criminal will pass by no harm done and 9 times out of ten a cop will pass by no harm done .
Its teh tenth time you better worry about .

So does anyone else of you only site the bad parts of a persons life...

None of that is relevant in a police shooting.. all that matters is “was the officer in danger when he shot”?


Cops can most certainly do wrong... however, given the guy's history, it is highly likely he was responsible for his own death.

They always say stuff like that; "Administrative Leave" should be a clue.

"We're looking into it", another.

Not responding to 911 calls, still another.

I don't know what happened, I wasn't there either. But the tells are piling up.

I knew a guy once got a police dog sicced on him for being homeless while black. Mauled and bleeding, he stumbled to a 711 and called 911. No ambulance ever arrived. After the second time the same cops drove by, I hid him in the back of my pick up and drove him to the hospital.



Its so sad that certain areas just won't get emergency responders to arrive period. My girlfriend lives in a not so great part of town. Shes used to being in the suburbs where she was born and raised and due to some unfortunate circumstances she ended up in a place that she could afford, but wasn't so safe.

Several times she's heard gunshots at the complex next door. She's heard women screaming out for help. She's called the police several times and not once in the 2 years she's lived there have they ever responded to her calls. She called me one night crying if I could pick her up because she couldn't listen to her neighbor beat his girlfriend and her screams for help any longer.

I asked someone close to me who is a cop why the hell the police weren't responding! His response was simply "Maybe your friend should move to a part of town where they do bother responding".....................


So I have an awfully mixed bag of feelings for emergency responders now - and all my elders were either 911 operators, police, or firefighters, even had an uncle who was an EMT........ to get a response like that from one of those people I looked up to and thought would always protect me, my friends, or anyone else in need...... well... Just another time in my life where I realized all the lies I ate up as a child. Sad fact, a lot of people DON'T care.

I'm so sorry to hear your story as well.



PS to anyone else reading this... I know how a lot of us feel about Heroin especially the dealers..... But please, I will actually beg you to show the OP some compassion if nothing else. He's hurting. He lost someone he cared about dearly for better or worse, and lost him in a violent manner. At least acknowledge his pain. I'm sure he isn't blind to what his friend was doing and its effects. He's probably scared this could happen to him or more of his friends. Give him something uplifting to encourage him to stay on a safer path than his friend was on.

Perhaps at least consider my words.

Its not that they like dictatorships. Its that people do not have sympathy for known criminals who have a history of destroying the lives, family units, and communities with drugs and other criminal behaviors. At least he was not a pedo, you would then be reading the deepest darkest torture fantasies of those claiming to like justice. I for one have never advocated for anything more than a swift bullet to the temple, regardless of how heinous a crime is.

I have been in the same scenario you are in now though. At least my friends family and two daughters got a payout from the city after taking it to a civil rights case in a higher court. Although his criminal record was not nearly as extensive.

Major Crimes is likely responsible for homicide investigations, in which case yes, having them involved would be normal.

"The death was ruled a..."homicide"


Yes, because when one person kills another person, that's a homicide.

All homicides are not murders.

FYI, the word "homicide" does not infer unlawful. It is a legal term meaning.

From Merriam Webster's Dictionary


Definition of homicide
1 : a person who kills another
2 : a killing of one human being by another

detectives investigating a homicide



So, in this case, yes, they are investigating a homicide to determine if it was justified nor not. The trooper is on paid administrative leave while it is under investigation. This is all SOP....and he too is innocent until proven guilty (just as all American citizens should be). Unless, of course, you subscribe to the mob rules mentality and being judged in the court of public opinion. The person shot, had been previously judged in a court of law, and has a history of illegal and dangerous behavior.

No one is salivating but ignoring the guy appeared to be a dirtbag also isn't prudent. He most certainly could have been gunned down without cause, but the reality is that it is highly unlikely given the guy's history. If it is found the cop acted inappropriately, then he should be prosecuted.

All deaths at the hands of another person are treated as as "homicide." Homicide does not mean the death was not justifiable.

We've all had friends who can't seem to get their sh*t together. While it hurts us to know they've gotten in trouble with the law because we may know them personally or know a different side, it doesn't necessarily change the fact they may in fact still be a dirtbag in other aspects of their lives.

My best friend was a drunk, beat his girlfriends, etc. He did a lot of dumb sh*t and has probably been arrested four or five times. He is still my best friend and was the best man in my wedding. If I heard he got killed in a DUI accident or killed someone else or did some other major crime, it wouldn't surprise me one bit. However, I still could't blame the cops for what I know is my best friends irresponsibility.

Better start to relize people are sick to death of being victimized people are sick to daeth of how drug users destroy lifes ( ITS NOT just you who is effected by your drug use .
People are sick and tired of cops on roids who cant seam to get real criminals and stick to easy prey
In this town the county jail holds 1000 200 are in for child support mean wil they couild easily fill that jail twice over just cleaning out the flea bad drug house hotels here .
But they make more money busting tourists for little crap and keep guys who are dead broke in jail as they can use them for slave labor .
