that the cop "perceived" he was armed and/or a threat, and therefor shooting him doesn't matter, as it was the man who used poor judgement in not
obeying protocol, and that the cop used perfectly sound judgement.
This crap happens far too often. A few threads have gone up in the last few days about cops shooting civilians, and the underlying theme is none of
the offenses deserved a death sentence.

Well lets see.. The information released says the guy stated something to the police.. How about we wait to see what was said to see if it has any
impact on the reason for shooting.
Secondly what the hell is your problem? Are you really that big of an NTAC? As I stated in the other thread where you incorrectly judged the
situation, just because you don't know and don't understand how the law works doesn't make an officers actions illegal.
When I post I provide the information that the cop haters are to lazy to look up and understand. All I see you do is make snide ignorant comments
while contributing absolutely nothing of substance to the threads, like your post in this thread.
Dont get pissed at me because you are to lazy to do your own research.
Other news accounts reporting different details -
Two Daughters in Back Seat When Marine Fatally Shot by OC
2 daughters in back seat when Marine fatally shot
The deputy tried to pull over 31-year old Manny Levi Loggins on a traffic violation when the man drove through a gate and into the school parking
lot, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Sheriff's Department.
Amormino says the deputy pulled up behind the vehicle and ordered Loggins out. Loggins exited the vehicle, but walked away from the deputy. At some
point, Loggins turned around to walk back toward the SUV, Amormino said. He said the deputy radioed for backup, then something happened that prompted
the deputy to open fire.
Sheriff's officials said Loggins was spotted speeding and crashing through a gate at the high school along Avenida Pico early Tuesday, prompting a
deputy to contact the Marine.
Loggins got out of his sport utility vehicle and ignored several commands from the deputy, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the department.
As Loggins walked back to the vehicle, the deputy fired, Amormino said.
So lets see.. The Deputy observes this vehicle crash through a gate into the parking lot while travelling at a high rate of speed. The Deputy
initiates a traffic stop, at which point the suspect gets out of his vehicle and ignores verbal commands from the deputy. The suspect then walks away
from the deputy, still ignoring verbal commands. The suspect then stops and starts heading back to the vehicle, still ignoring commands.
The suspect made a statement to the officer which has not been released yet.
What we don't know -
* - What did he say to the deputy?
* - Was the guy suicidal / homicidal?
* - Was there any drugs / alcohol in his system?
* - Are there any issues in the guys personal life that affected his mental status?
* - Was there anything discovered in the vehicle of a criminal nature?
* - Were the kids harmed before
the incident with the deputy?
- Was the suspect armed with any weapons visible or not?
etc etc etc...
But by all means, continue your 100 meter rush to judgment.
