    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    Gotta love the idiot families comments. We wont be seeing much of this at all with what BLM and ANTIFA want, we will see hostage throat slit, suspect runs after and wounds or kills Social Worker. Suspect survives to do it again til someone takes him out.

    BLM is pronounced BM (L is silent) in my neck of the woods. Since they don't care about lives why pronounce it and give them credit?

    I agree. The comments of the family are completely asinine.


    We feel that the actions taken in this altercation was unnecessary. Andrew was not in his right state of mind but he never wanted to hurt anyone. He had a history with law enforcement but that doesn't make him in any way less of a person. This could have been prevented by taking a few extra minutes or hour to talk him down if that’s what it would take. In our opinion it did not look like a hostage situation, rather Andrew leaning on his friend for support because it appeared that he was is some way hurt.

    “They should have taken more time to talk instead of shoot and that’s gotta change,” the family said.
    I'm sorry that their relative was crazy and/or high and had a criminal history, but putting the hostage through an hour of waiting to see if his throat would be slit doesn't sound like a good option to me. You don't try to reason the rabies out of a mad dog. You just put the dog down. That doesn't mean you hate the dog for what it is. You just have the clarity to realize that a mad dog cannot be allow to run around biting people and you do what needs to be done.

    "He had a history with law enforcement but that doesn't make him in any way less of a person." Oh yes, yes it does.
